“Great atmosphere and excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

We have visited on many occasions. David and Angela are welcoming hosts and the staff extremely friendly and helpful, in particular Dave Bowden and Louise Barber who went that extra mile to ensure we had a wonderful time. All the rooms are of a high standard,extremely clean and the included breakfast was amazing value and delicious and set us up for the day ahead. There was a wide selection of evening meals including daily specials, at extremely reasonable prices. The food is freshly and perfectly cooked and the portions ample. All in all this is a fantastic place to stay and is within reasonable distance of many of the great attractions that the Lakes have to offer. We would recommend the Ginn House to anyone and will certainly be visiting again.

I didn't stay here but did have a meal here when our hotel couldn't fit us in..Warm relaxing atmosphere very pleasant staff and steaks cooked to perfection! We arrived late, the staff fitted us in and the main course was served within ten minutes of us sitting down. Impressive!! Steaks cooked exactly how we ordered and very large portions of everything too...Will go back next time we are in that area..did have a look round at the accomodation too..it looked very good and seemed excellent value for money..may even stay there next time too!

We stayed at the Ginn House when attending a near by function. We only live 30 miles away, so normally wouldn't get the opportunity to stay locally, but this hotel was a really lovely surprise. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts were without doubt the best that we have had in any hotel we have stayed in; and we have traveled all over USA, Australia, Europe & the UK. The staff were attentive and friendly.There is plenty of parking. If you are looking for a north lakes place to stay don't hesitate to book The Old Ginn House.

We stayed for just one night but would definately return for longer. The family room was large and had plenty of room for our 3 children. We had a meal in the restaurant and the food was of a very high standard and the portions were huge! I would recommend the steak. The breakfast was also delicious, there was lots of choice. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and ensured all our needs were met. All in all we were very happy with our stay and just wish we had booked for longer.

I stayed at The Old Ginn House for a couple of nights as a base for work and found that the staff were excellent and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. The food tasted absolutely delicious and I never felt uncomfortable despite being on my own. Room facilities were basic but good and the bed was nice and comfortable. I would absolutely recommend the Old Ginn House.
