My wife and I spent three nights at the Riverside Hotel for their Christmas Break. This commenced on Christmas Eve and included bed, breakfast and quality evening meals for all three days, in addition to a six-course Christmas Day lunch.
This represented excellent value for money as the break was very well priced compared to others in the area with comparable packages.
The quality of the food was excellent throughout, especially the Christmas lunch. Service was faultless from what appeared to be quite a small group of very hard working staff, which added to the 'personal' feel of the hotel.
Our room was of a good standard with a good sized and very comfortable bed, attractive bath/shower room, large flat screen TV, and view of river.
A nice benefit was the (free for guests) leisure facilities which were open for use throughout the break, including a large gym, pool, sauna, and steam room. There is also a large free under cover car park.
Overall I would recommend this hotel, and we plan to return when the weather is better to explore the surrounding Lake District area.
