Popped in for a drink with our baby, she needed changing so when I asked where the baby changing was I was met with a rude 'there isn't one as such but we have a disabled toilet' where I could lay her on the floor. The way the three women responded was rude and like we were an inconvenience. For... More

So we were over the moon with our rooms which both had jacuzzi style baths, one of the rooms also had a balcony with a huge 'astro turf' garden complete with... More

Stayed here for 10 nights to celebrate my husband's 60th and my forthcoming 70th birthdays. Several members of our families came to join us for a birthday celebration meal last Friday and the staff looked after us to perfection - the restaurant is so flexible with it's partitions that we had our own dining area,(probably better for the other guests...

Having stayed at this hotel before we popped in today for a light sandwich lunch when visiting Ambleside. Poached trout and beef sandwiches were tasty and fresh. Large glass of wine and a water and a bill for just under £20. Peaceful environment to sit in , away from hustle and bustle. Enjoyable hour relaxing and flicking through newspapers.
