I won a 'Luxury Stay in The Lake District' with OK magazine,for which part of the prize was an overnight stay at the Castle Green Hotel. My husband was 60 on the 13th June , so l arranged to extend my stay by a further two days to have a Birthday Treat.
It was all arranged very easily with Liz, and Laura.
The Hotel is really nice, set in a lovely location in Kendal. Looks very impressive when you arrive. We were given room 155, which, l am sorry to say, although of a nice standard, was situated in a part of the grounds that gave no natural light. There is no view whatsoever from the window..only shrubs right against it.
The weather on Saturday was glorious sunshine...but you would never have realized. The room was so dark we had to keep the lights on, when we arrived back from our outing at 3.30pm. As it was a special occasion l was determined that this was not going to spoil the break for us, but patrons take note...it is a 'sad' looking room,dark,with a somewhat fusty smell.
We ate at Alexanders, the pub on all three nights...lovely food, and such great staff, particularly Natalie,such an asset...friendly, helpful,a great girl..even found us seats to watch England at the bar after our meal.
I would definately go there again...to another brighter room perhaps..i am sure the one we had must have been the exception.
Breakfasts were fab...loads of choice..with sauages to die for.
