Very clean ,friendly staff and as weather was very wet use of a drying room which was very useful for our extremely wet coats. Breakfast was of good quality and plenty of it. Car park could be better . Would definitely reccomend and... More

Stayed here for one night and was quite impressed! The room was clean, bright and warm, but a bit small. The surrounding area was stunning. The shower was incredible. We slept ok, but found the bed a little too hard for our liking, but that's just our opinion. In the morning we had breakfast which is continental. The selection was... More

Small and friendly, quiet and peaceful. Situated a couple of miles from Thirlmere and 2 minutes walk from major Bus Route. We left our car and used the bus, it was great. Our room had little spare space as the bed was rather large, having said that, that was the only negative and it was not a big issue. The... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at £40 per night through a deal with Groupon. It's a really nice place to stay, with a clean and spacious room and bathroom. The free wifi was useful to have especially when we had no mobile phone signal whatsoever - but that was to be expected, seeing as we were surrounded by mountains.... More

Our room was spotlessly clean, we had a lovely view & there was everything in it that was needed, the staff were friendly & the continental breakfast was gorgeous. There was a choice of cereals, tea, coffee, bread, ham, dried & fresh... More

This was a lovely hotel in a great location between Keswick and Ambleside. The breakfast was continental and even though i enjoy a cooked breakfast I was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. There is wifi in every room which to me and my boyfriend was a must and worked fine with no problems. We got the rooms for £70... More

We booked this hotel through Groupon, the first time we have done this; we would stay here again at the drop of a hat. It's easy to find being just off the A591, but far enough away from it for traffic noise not to be a problem; the town of Keswick is only five miles away and is a lovely... More

Stayed here for one night, great reasonably priced hotel BUT although i am a dog lover and accept that many hotels in the lakes welcome dogs. I draw the line of dogs being in the dining room at breakfast time. One resident had complete disregard as let she let her dog run freely around the dining room and also proceeded... More
