As many people on here have already reported, myself and my partner went here on a travelzoo deal .
We arrived around 4 pm and we were told we could have our cream tea whenever we liked instead of the allocated time of between 3 and 5 pm on the day of arrival which we appreciated as we weren't really hungry then.
We stayed in room 36, room was clean and bed reasonably comfortable although in dire need of an update, no shower in room , there was a Jacuzzi bath although unfortunately that didn't work, as this was now Saturday evening I didn't see the point in asking for someone to look at it as I doubt they could have got a plumber before Monday morning, not a massive deal, partner used the showers in the spa for the duration of our stay.
We were booked in for the 3 course table d'hote menu, starters and mains were brilliant, couldn't fault it and was very impressed with the quality, partners dessert was also really nice unfortunately my creme brulee had curdled but I was so full I again wasn't too bothered, nice selection of wine and very reasonably priced !
Cooked breakfast was nice, would have liked some pastries to be available, not a fan of tinned fruit ! Service on both occasions was fine .
The lobby has some really comfortable sofas to sit in, you get the best wifi connection there , on Sunday night they had a really bad leak from upstairs though which had to be caught in a bucket so did ruin the time you spent there, can imagine it would be really cosy in winter when the log fire was going !
Would I return, probably not unfortunately, although for the price we paid I definitely don't feel I was robbed , with a little or maybe a lot of tlc this could be a great place to be your base if your visiting the lakes .
