We had a fantastic 2 night Gin and Spa Break at this Hotel with another 2 couples. The Staff were all so helpful and friendly especially Dave who put up with all out breakfast requests. The hotel it's self was very clean and luxurious. We stayed in room 35 with a lovely outdoor seating area, our friends were also in rooms next to ours. The food there was exceptional and we were lucky enough to experience both the fine dining and the bistro. We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted to feel spoilt. The Thermal Spa was amazing.... so relaxing. We'll definitely be back.

We visited here with friends on a Gin and Spa Break deal. It was amazing. The Hotel was very clean and Luxurious. We stayed in room 35 with our own outside area which was lovely. The room itself was very spacious and for us just perfect. The food was excellent and we ate in both the Fine Dining and Bistro Restaurant...both were amazing as was Breakfast.... Thank you Dave for putting up with all our requests..... the chef did an amazing job. All the staff were so friendly and nothing was to much trouble... Thank you Pauline and Alice... we will definitely be back.... Staff amazing, Food Amazing, Room Amazing and Thermal Spa Amazing.... Thank you from Lynne and Gordon Aitken.

Had a lovely spa morning to then finish with an afternoon tea. The gluten free option was the worst I've had. The bread was poor quality not helped with it sat out for ages as butter had dried up. Scone so dry and tiny, no biscuit and the cake was dry. I would advise them not to bother with gluten free afternoon teas.

I'm surprised by the negative reviews on here; either there have been changes or we were lucky! We booked the de luxe room (room 8) which is at the rear of the hotel on the first floor with great views across the garden to the hills beyond. It was a quiet room, possibly those at the front may have more traffic noise. It is in the original part of the hotel (there are rooms on the ground floor in the spa area which are probably modern but we loved the traditional feel, although the en suite bathroom (jacuzzi style with shower over) was pretty small, might be a problem using the loo if you are a more generous size! The deal included 2 hours in the spa which we enjoyed; hydrotherapy pool, outside jacuzzis for a cool down, sauna, salt and steam rooms, foot spa. Lovely and relaxing as this break was at the end of a 10 day tour of northumberland and Edinburgh. We had a two course meal in the bistro and restaurant and really enjoyed both meals: Fisherman's Board and Chicken Pomo followed by Banoffee pud and Strawberry Sundae in the Bistro; mushroom soup with truffle oil amuse bouche, pigeon breast followed by salmon and Steak then sticky toffee pudding in the restaurant. The service was excellent. We had a drink in the bar before dinner (included canapes), lovely old fashioned service. A glass of wine was about £8.25 which we thought was about right for a hotel (our local pub charges £7+ for a pretty ordinary red!) and a Hendricks and tonic about £7.50. We also had a cocktail in the bar one afternoon (included in the break) which was very pleasant. I do agree with the comment that you don't know what you are paying for; it would be good to have either a receipt or to sign a bill as it's a bit difficult to check the final bill. Also agree about the 5% service (what's that about, paying 5% on top of not only all your drinks but the whole B & B bill!) We asked for it to be reduced but the receptionist took it off. All the staff were pleasant and we had very good service all round. Breakfast was good, although it's a shame there isnt a fish option (apart from scrambled egg with a few slivers of smoked salmon) and the fruit is tinned. However it is beautifully served. We walked from the hotel down to Appleby which was a pleasant 20 min walk via the old mill and weir and looked at the Almshouses and Chapel, Moot Hall and Church (it was heritage weekend so everything was open) and mooched around the shops before having a beer in one of the pubs and walk back. Overall we thought this was a good deal; you do pay extra for a de luxe room and if you stay at the weekend (as we did) but still pretty good value for money.

Lovely spot but went downhill from there. The suite, fine dining and breakfast package was a farce. The room was dowdy dark and lacked a view apart from a bank of air conditioner units on a roof. The windows were painted shut. The net curtains were probably hung in 1952 at the date of my husbands birth and had not been laundered since. It was so incredibly hot it was unfit to let to folks. The bathroom though pleasant was even hotter and the cold tap would produce water to scald! The rest well it got worse: Staff served expensive bottle wine, unfit to drink. Didn't show bottle just poured two large glasses and plonked them down. It was mouldy and awful. We took it back. We had many texts asking times for restaurant. we booked 7.30pm, came down dripping sweat and no one even took an order. 8.40pm had to ask what's going on, told chef everyone finished. Main course arrived before starter? Took away and starter arrived . Awful dry pastry with a few sautéed shallots, dry and unseasoned and a blob of ice cream on top? Didin't eat most of it was that bad. Mains returned been put on hot surface, so not fresh by now. Only taste was loads of garlic. declined dessert although we were supposed to have a four course meal restaurant had packed up by then. We drank second bottle of wine still at £41.00 so went up to the now BOILING ROOM. Sadly would have left then, but we had drank half wine each so too late to drive down M6 home.... had no sleep on top of bed. Fans x4 in room simply blew acres dust and I had a bad allergic reaction, coughing, wheezing and sneezing. Both eyes swollen and raw. Breakfast was very poor as well. Escaped ASAP home. Ruined my husbands 70 birthday trip. Both complained. Room unfit to let guests near or offer on internet? Expensive waste money. Certainly not Fine Dining experience. Pine tables, no clothes and not to be recommended.

Furniture in room is old and dated, one of the main issues was how hot the room was, heating had been on before we arrived, it was so hot and in The middle of august( one of the bar staff admitted the heating in the hotel was way too much and he slept on-site too)Hard too sleep in such heat, told reception and had 2 fans on the go… Bed uncomfortable, pillows no good, no fridge in room for drinks, no plug sockets next too bed.. Toilet seat kept dropping as I was taking a pee including in the middle of the night resulting in me banging my knee on toilet, hurting my bits and pieces and spraying the bath floor and my leg at 3am! Reported this too reception.. Bath was good but bathroom tv v fuzzy, bedroom tv miles from actual bed.. Restaurant require you to go down 30 mins before sit down meal to order drinks and give food order, small menu not much choice, chose the lamb which was nearly 30£ and was just ok, not much food tbh. Toffee pudding was nice.. Garden spa was ok but expensive at 25 each, would not pay that again, outside hot tub didn’t work properly when button pressed. Looked nicer on pictures, like the rest of the hotel.. Reception lady nice, the rest of the staff were just ok I think, a few more smiles wouldn’t have gone a miss.. location is remote, hard to get taxis into small village not many pubs and not great ones either, had to walk back and very dark along narrow country roads. Will not be staying here again, v expensive for what we received, overall a poor birthday experience

We stayed here for 2 nights in July on a gin spa break. The receptionist was very nice as were all the staff we met. We up graded our room, which was on the ground floor near the spa, & it was beautiful & well worth the extra. We had patio doors out to a large shared patio. With lovely views of the Eden valley, Appleby & the beautifully kept garden which was a pleasure to stroll round. The room was spotless & tastefully decorated & furnished. The bathroom looked new & had a big shower with a nice rain shower head. With our deal we got one Bistro meal & one in the main restaurant. Both were excellent. Fantastic choice & presented & cooked well. Breakfast was nice too. We had a light lunch each day & the sandwiches were nicely presented. We had a 2 hour slot in the Spa with our deal. It was spotlessly clean & had a lovely outdoor seating area. It was very relaxing & I loved the foot spa, among others. The bar area was relaxing & had a nice outdoor seating area, which was well used. The only gripe I have is that we were charged for tap water with our meals. This was not explained when we were asked if we would like it! On 2 occasions we asked for a glass of ice to take to our room & we were charged. Both the water & ice charges had vat added. We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel & I would consider going again if we return to the area. I would have give 5 stars but the water & ice charges changed my mind. Does seems to be very greedy.

Do not understand the negative reviews 2nd Visit… Positives: Great value if you book a deal that includes dinner and spa access…..we had the Gin Lakes Package All staff very friendly and helpful, go out of their way to ensure you employ your stay. One of the party was gluten free and was very…very..impressed by what was available and how clear it was to ensure food ordered was gluten free… Rooms are not new but well maintained Hotel very clean Spa experience great but book a package where it is included Great location LOOK FORWARD TO OUR NEXT VISIT….. Negatives …all very minor….. You do not know how much u r signing to your room, for example in the lounge Dinner in the Main Restaurant was not as good as previous visit…perhaps the head chef was off on the day we dined…pigeon starter was over cooked as was the calves liver..the later sent back but replaced promptly…having said that all others enjoyed their food. Watch out as not clear when booking but there is a 5% service charge on your bill before VAT on all charges…but it does go to the staff( we asked) so not an issue as no need to add to bills as you go.

Purchased on their spa break packages and stayed for a couple of nights. Our room faced the front and had great views. The room was not modern but that’s what we liked about it, it looked more traditional. It was however very clean which is the main thing. We found the restaurant and bar areas to be nice and again having a traditional feeling. The staff were very friendly. In particular the receptionist who greeted us and the gent who I presumed was the head waiter. The spa area was nice and we took full advantage of it. There were a few leaves lying about the hot tub (not in the water) but it was autumn….what more would you expect! Treatments were also great. We ate in the bistro and the main restaurant and found both to be good. Only comment I would make however is when I selected the cheeseboard I didn’t expect the accompanying butter to be a couple of foil wrapped ones I’d usually find in a roadside cafe. A minor issue but it’s the finer details that matter. Overall would be happy to recommend to others looking for a chilled couple of quiet days and good value for money.
