My friend & I have had an amazing Afternoon Tea here today. The selection was wonderful. Beautiful savouries & delicious cakes with the best warm scones jam & cream! Couldn't eat all the cakes so the waiter put them in a box for us to bring home! Beautiful comfy lounge with a log fire as it was raining & quite... More

We have just returned from a two day stay at this hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The quality of food and service is as good as any we have experienced. The short walk into Bowness is worth the effort where you can find a range of bars, restaurants and shops. We took the ferry across the lake and enjoyed... More

After a mix up with our booking, where the Hotel couldn't find our name on the Arrivals list, the Receptionist (Sam, I think her name was) did a marvellous job in sorting it out and were allocated a fab room on the 2nd floor overlooking Lake Windermere and the gardens. The Hotel itself is a lovely hotel and the grounds... More

Just back from an overnight stay here with family to celebrate a milestone birthday. Location lovely. Reception staff helpful. Evening bar staff unhelpful and rude - they obviously wanted us to vacate the lounge bar area (11pm - not late for a hotel!) and get up to our rooms. Breakfast service abysmal - lots of staff but they were so... More

My friends and I stayed here for a long weekend, and I must say that the food was excellent in every way, the service very good, and the accommodations extremely comfortable. The location is absolutely breathtaking, with a lot of great history involving Beatrix Potter. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it wholeheartedly.

Sauna was unusable due to large ceramic tiles... More

My sister and I stayed just one night, arriving early in order to take a Beatrix Potter tour of the Lake District, and enjoying a delicious dinner afterward. The next morning's breakfast was delicious and beautifully served.

Me and my fiancé stayed here last week as the pictures on the website looked amazing, the rooms look fab etc.. until we got there and saw the room we was in, we was basically in a loft conversion, there was hardly any light in the room apart from two bedside lamps which did nothing. Every morning when we wanted... More

Yes this is an old house with un-even floors and 1930 plumbing and way off the beaten path. But a little gem to discover and take it easy by siting in the garden or admiring the little bird cadges. Rooms have no AC and no elevator but great WIFI. Dining rooms are decorated very nicely and look a little odd... More

It was noisey first thing in the morning and someone aws hoovering the outside corridor at 08:30 Sunday morning. Some of the staff could speak little English so we had a... More
