Fabulous stay for one night for my birthday, without prompting or requesting we were upgraded to an executive room. Really comfortable beds, stunning bathroom and quality products. Afternoon tea was very filling and dinner was gorgeous. The hotel was very quiet so we had unrivalled attention from the staff all of whom knew of my birthday :-) Macdonald breakfasts are always substantial with a really good range and excellent quality products for the cooked option. Really well placed on the main road to Windermere so a pleasant drive through the lakes on a bright sunny December morning when traffic was unusually very light. All in all a lovely couple of days.

Nestled in the Cumbrian countryside, with views across the Fells, our cosy and inviting hotel is ideal for walkers and cyclists. With open sunny vistas in summer and blazing log fires in winter, it's the ideal base for exploring the wonders of the Lake District National Park. Afterwards, relax with a delicious meal in our restaurant or enjoy the convivial atmosphere of the Walkers' Bar before retiring to a traditionally - furnished, comfortable room. ... more less
