We were given a Travelzoo voucher for afternoon tea and had been looking forward to it. Unfortunately it was very disappointing. The sandwich selection was curried egg and smoked mackerel with pickled gerkins; very odd. We said we didn't like them so other more conventional

Afternoon iocasti, Thank you for your query. As the majority of our guests are here on a leisure break we do not have wi-fi in guest rooms. This service is available within the public areas. Due in part to our location and the infra-structure within the Lakes, broadband speeds are not as quick as in some more populated areas of the country. Come to the Lakes, enjoy the countryside and get away from the drain of modern-life and technology for a while... Hopefully this information is of help, but please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help. Regards Duncan
