There is a Swedish word that is 'Lagom'. (pron; largom). It means something is just right. Not too hot or too cold, not too big or too small.....etc.This place is lagom.
It is almost a home from home - clean ensuite rooms with great shower, boot tray, TV on wall, tea/coffee etc (I had room 7 which is the biggest) enough space for me and walking gear.
We were 4 mates walking in the snow, Helvellyn and Pikes roundtrips. 15 miles a day - return to hot shower - bit of tele - cup of tea - nice and very prompt dinner - beers..........perfect. The restaurant was full both Fri and Sat nights providing a great atmosphere, helped along with very friendly and obliging staff, including Colin and Ian and a lovely waitress who was spot on.
Will def be back! Thanks again for a nice hospitable stopover.
