Wow! Comparing it to other British tapas bars we have visited this is one of the best. Good sized portions. Plenty to eat. Really tasty dishes. Great with children. Especially the moustaches and sombreros! Will be back again soon.

The new owners have only been in for a week and I must say ever credit to them. The room was spotless and one of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in. The room had all the facilities that we could have asked for. Breakfast was outstanding and varied form cereal to yoghurt to a full English. The staff... More

This hotel had obviously went through a series of management changes, so beware. Visited to celebrate our Anniversary and had problems beforehand with booking confirmation. On arrival my worst fears were confirmed when we were advised that only a twin room was available. Recently installed Assistant Manager explained "that they were picking up the pieces" and she would do her... More

We stayed for two nights. The room was clean, bright, warm and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious - chef Mark is doing a brilliant job. Great location for the Lakes - will definitely return.

I found this review quite shocking in the fact that everything you have said was not bought to my attention nor that of anyone else working. I am quite sure that if you had said anything to either myself or my staff this would have been rectified. We have served a lot of people over the festive period and the... More
