Our friends from times past had booked in for a short break, and had invited us to join them for dinner. So we took up an offer and stayed overnight. The situation and grounds - and views - are stunning. The hotel is in lovely condition; the staff are really pleasant, welcoming and obviously well trained. the room was excellent and the food was up to the highest standards of Lakes Hotels Fine Dining. The food is interesting and excellently cooked by an obviously inspired chef. (Breakfast menu is really interesting.) We will return! Well done!
