After being surprised by my Fiancée for a birthday retreat to The Lakes, we were left completely shocked with what happened.

After dining in the restaurant, we politely asked for the main course to be taken back as it didn’t taste very nice and seemed pre-heated (we were complet

What a disappointing review to read. This "recent" stay was 2 months ago. We only just heard from them a few days ago about this. We check the pool water quality on a daily basis, with all the details logged in. Up to 200 people a week enjoy our pool with regular children swimming lessons and aqua-robic classes and we have had no complaints whatsoever regarding the water quality nor anyone with any negative reactions to using the pool. When we discussed this on the phone, the gentleman became quite irate, using foul language and demanding a refund whilst blackmailing us with a potential tripadvisor review.

Hi, when will the refurbishment of the leisure facilities be complete. Thinking of booking between Xmas and new year? Thanks Diane
Hi Diane, thanks for your question! The current stage of the refurbishment will be finished this coming week and the next stage isn't planned until the New Year, at least. Hope that helps!

Is there much to do and see around the hotel? How far is the nearest town ? ☺️
Thanks everyone for your answers! The hotel is quite rural and in a peaceful spot. Bowness-on-Windermere is only a 10 minute drive away and Kendal a bit further than that. Both have lots of restaurants, pubs and attractions. Hope that helps!

Hello Thanks for your questions and thanks to those who have provided helpful answers! As people have mentioned, it is an old building but we do have ground floor rooms. Give reception a ring to talk through all of the options! Thanks very much.

Hi and thanks for your question. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. We currently have availability for 18 April for 2 nights.
