Stayed 24th and 25th August 2013. Having stayed at a large number of hotels in the Lake District over the years I can certainly say that this one is totally different to any other we have stayed in. The exterior of the building does not portray what you find inside. Inside is very modern and contemporary. The room was superb, large, well equipped with luxurious bathroom. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. We did experience an incident in the dining room where we had a very long delay from starter to main course. Although we thought that we had been missed, the Head Waiter smoothed things over very expertly and had no hesitation in reducing the food bill by 20% with an apology for the delay. He could not have been more courteous and professional in his response. Food was delicious. The décor in the hotel is superb. If you want typical lake district décor then this hotel is not for you. However it was a very welcome change. Beautifully maintained and very clean throughout. Only slight down side was that the bar lacked atmosphere, but this is more down to the people in it than the staff. The staff were very friendly in all areas of service and all had a greeting whatever their role.
