We re-booked this weekend after the Coniston 14 was postponed on March owing to the horrendous blizzards! We found the hotel very pleasant and welcoming. Our room was in the annexe and was small but extremely comfortable and well appointed. There were 6 easily accessible electric points, 2 of which were next to the dressing table and a mirror which made it much easier to use a hair dryer. There was also a full length mirror. The bathroom was clean, with a very good shower and good quality towels. The bed was very comfortable.
We used the hotel bar service for our evening meals and I was impressed at the swift service - even though the hotel was packed on both nights. Food very good on both nights.The breakfast was lovely and once again the service was pretty quick. To improve it for me I would like to see yogurt and more fruit, my partner would have liked to have baked beans with his 'full English' - but hey that's being picky!
It's a real ale pub and the beer is well kept if pricey - between £ 7 & £8 for a typical round of a pint and a glass of house wine. However, not unusual for the Lake district. This was our first visit and we would certainly stay there again.
