We stayed for a long weekend, for 2 nights. I dont understand some of the poor reviews-maybe they are just the people who love to complain!
The hotel was really nice, the staff were so friendly and helpful. Yes I must admit there are two small flights of stairs to go up to the reception if you are coming from the car park. Hotel not ideal for people with disabilities. There are no lifts. The lounge area is so comforting oldy-worldy. Leather sofas, huge fireplace, chandeliers...Its very spread out and not cramped, you can also sit by the terrace, which has a panoramic view of Lake Windermere. The restaurant is huge. The preparation of the food and the decoration of the tableware will not disappoint. The food was fantastic. Staff were very courteous and friendly.
Our room was really lovely. For a standard double room, there was lots of space. Was very neat and clean (No mould!) It had a little terrace which overlooked the lake views. No it wasnt completely private, but its more than most hotels! Bed was comfortable and the room temperature was just right. The bathroom was quite big and very clean and modern. The maids came in everyday to clean if required.
There is a swimming pool in the hotel, we had a look at this but didnt use it.
I would say this hotel is definitely a 4 star. The car park can get pretty full if alot of people are using the hotel, there was a wedding when we were there so it was really busy but we managed.
Overall I think this is a lovely gem of hotel with fantastic views and comfortable hotel surroundings. There was no mould/marks or damp anywhere we could see. I think people shouldnt be so picky and enjoy the hotel, its not going to be "perfect" as its being lived in everyday. If you want perfection-stay at home!
