We had a large room, allegedly with a lake view, on the first floor. One could just get a distant glimpse of water but nevertheless, the view was pleasant. The twin beds were large and very comfortable but had been so arranged that it was impossible to operate the light switches while in bed. The flatscreen TV was too small... More

If you are looking for a picture perfect hotel with lake views go to the Waterhead Hotel. We booked a deal via Travelzoo for 2 nights and were not disappointed. The room was large and had stunning lake views. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good, the dinner too- lots of choice. It was just... More

ROOM 18 -LAKE VIEW. We got a fab two night deal via TRAVELZOO.. for the price so much better than expected. Room clean and tidy with two beds. Lake view to boot. Dinner and breakfast both very good. Not stayed at Coniston before in the Lakes..Its quieter than Windermere but perfectly placed to get around.

The staff at this hotel were absolutely first class, I watched one of the receptionists talk to an American chap who was struggling to input a postcode in his sat nav, the lady went out to his car and sorted it for him. This was not exceptional, nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel is not the most... More

We stayed in the four poster room for a 2 night stay for part of our honeymoon in the Lakes. The room was ok but it wasn't anything special and the 4 poster bed was just a frame - no drapes. I had wondered if the supplement we paid was worth the money as i hadn't been privvy to the... More

We had a lovely 2 night stay in the hotel. The location to Coniston Village is fantastic and the path to get there is flat and easy to navigate. Despite being next to the road, the hedgerow along the way makes you feel very safe walking along it. There are fantastic walks close by so no need to drive anywhere... More

We stayed for two nights, excellent location. The staff at the hotel were most helpful and accommodating. We up graded to a room with a view of the lake would not do this again as it was not worth the additional cost. We ate at the hotel on both nights , excellent food. You must try the Fish and chips,... More
