We stayed here on a great deal offered by the hotel on their website. It was called pick of the week. It was £179 for DBB, cream tea upon arrival and a £10 voucher off a spa treatment. We called reservations and spoke to Lorraine who was very efficient and friendly. We requested a modern room as we prefer modern interiors!
The drive up to the hotel was breathtaking as it was so beautiful! You can park right outside the hotel! On arrival we were offered water or sherry which was a lovely touch. The reception staff were so helpful and friendly!
We were shown to our room by Christian the porter. He was so friendly and filled us in with a brief history of the area. Our room was simply stunning. We were in room 156, a deluxe spa room. The bathroom was very large with a walk in shower and tv in the bath! The room had a sitting area, table, large tv, tea making facilities, masses of storage space, a huge comfortable bed, plush interiors, fresh fruit and water, fluffy robes and slippers, everything you could wish for!
The spa is also fabulous. We enjoyed all the facilities in particular champagne in the outdoor hot tub! The facilities are all brand new and are nipping clean. We also had a facial which was also very nice.
The only thing that tainted our stay was the service in the main dining room. We encountered problems such as our steak not cooked to our liking (after asking 5 times), potted tea over stewed, slow service, having to ask for items that should already be on the table! Putting these issues to one side, the quality of food was second to none! We ate in the brasserie on our 2nd night and we preferred the relaxed atmosphere. The food was also very good. We found the main dining room a little stuffy for our liking however we appreciate it is
personal choice! A recommendation to play some music might lighten the atmosphere perhaps!
After dinner we sat in the lounge in front of the open fires playing games supplied by the hotel, bliss! The billiard room is definitely worth a look also!
We would definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking for a quiet break in the lakes. We'll be back! Next time we will bring our dog as the hotel were so dog friendly! We loved seeing the owners dogs trotting around outside in the hotel grounds! We would like to thank the staff in particular Lorraine and Kim for making our stay a memorable one!
