On our first visit enticed by various descriptions, we arrived to a greeting which included the news that the award winning dinner we had been encouraged to book for on the Sunday night was "unavailable" due to lack of demand. This in spite of making the reservation and paying a deposit in advance. An attempt to join a few guests being catered for at dinner on the Saturday night was thwarted by an apparent lack of bought in provisions. The 'hotel' we read about and thought we'd booked suddenly was just a 'Bed & Breakfast' place. We expected better service than this.
Our accommodation was clean and acceptable with breakfast being OK except for a watery fruit juice.
The house is located next to Keswick School on the outskirts of the town and is on a downhill slope.
We shall look elsewhere next time.
