We stayed two nights and we so pleased that we chose the Queens Head for our stay. I was optimistic as I had written to the Queens Head and a very fancy hotel in Windermere to ask about public transport. Kelly from the Queens Head replied promptly and informatively; from the other hotel there was a generic response claiming that they would get back to me - they didn't. The reception certainly came up to my expectations, with assistance with bus time tables, clear information about the room and heating and arrangements for breakfast. The room was comfortable, clean and fairly large. In addition, there was an open area inside the door in which the wardrobe (a good size with plenty of hangers) and table with tea, coffee and cups were located. There was plenty of space for our suitcases to be stored in this area also. We ate at the Queens Head each night, and of course, enjoyed the breakfast. The cooked breakfast was well presented and cooked to order: very good indeed. A small disappointment was that some items from the cold menu were missing - no muesli, nuts or dried fruit. However, when I asked about the fresh fruit it was brought promptly and possibly if I'd wanted the other items they would also have been available. Possibly there could be more attention to detail with this and also with 'topping up' the tea and biscuits in the rooms. On the other hand, to have such abundant heating in the bathroom, entry and bedroom is such a bonus that any small issues are worth only mentioning. I'd certainly recommend this hotel to anyone for a great stay. In conclusion, we enjoyed the evening meals and noticed that the place was packed on the Saturday night with people constantly coming in.
