“Lovely Relaxing Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This hotel is lovely, great atmosphere, very helpful friendly staff, wonderful food and very clean everywhere. Good games room when the weather is too bad to go out or for the evening after eating. Nice location for walking & sightseeing,

Room Tip: Front rooms have lovely views towards Bassenthwaite lake. Over looks a minor road but not noisy.

We got a 2 night stay through a KGB deal. The room was very comfortable and cosy the only slight negative was that the shower had low pressure. We took advantage of the vast amount of games on offer from Jenga through to the full sized snooker table. The owners were very welcoming and friendly making a great atmosphere in the bar area.
Menu wasn't as expected from a traditional hotel food which was a nice surprise with modern twist. Provided a good variety for breakfast to cater for everyone. To be recommended!

The hotel is set in beautiful surroundings. The staff were the friendliest we have experienced and no request seemed to be too much bother. The owners were very attentive and very knowledgable of the area - advising us of a lovely walk into Keswick. Little touches, such as bubblebath being provided and fresh milk for your room upon request, make your stay there that bit more special. The bar area, which includes a real fire and many, many games, was very cosy and we had two very enjoyable evenings chatting to other guests. Dinner was one of the nicest meals we have had. We definitely hope to return to this hotel and will strongly recommend it to family and friends.

We had a great relaxing weekend. The superior room was very comfortable, with a sparkling new bathroom, and wonderful views over Bassenthwaite Lake and beyond. The hospitality was wonderful, with very attentive and efficient staff, and yet a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Our relatives were made very welcome as non resident dinner guests at an impromptu birthday celebration, with lovely personal touches. But the best of all was the extensive menu choice and care taken for my gluten free diet. I have not eaten better gluten free food in any other hotel.

Thank you soooooooooooo much to our daughters who booked us a fabulous weekend for our Christmas present. Fab food, staff and beautiful room. Defo 10/10!!!!!!!!!!!!! The weekend could not of been any more perfect. The staff were helpful to such a point that they even looked after you when your throat needed lozengers. We have not laughed so much after meeting such a lovely couple in the games room. We highly recommend that you visit as we are hoping to go back soon!!
