Finding a good hotel with 'Proper' disabled facilities can be very difficult. Most hoteliers have no idea whet it is like to be a carer looking after someone confined to a wheelchair. We have used the Coniston several times now on our visits to friends in Kent because the disabled facilities her are very good and the staff are so... More

After reviewing the salad a month or so ago, I returned with work colleagues and had the mozzarella and tomato sandwich. This was a much better experience and cane with salad. Very good and excellent value.

We had a bit of a problem at Christmas party but this evening (Friday 22nd April) more than made up for it. The night could not have been better, from beginning to end. The service was second to none. The food was fabulous, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. We were greeted with smiles and were served with smiles all evening.... More

Came here with colleagues to do some work in bar area. Five of us in total, 4 ordered burgers, I had mozzarella, pesto and tomato salad. When it arrived very nicely presented, it was just that, not a single lettuce leaf in sight. On asking for some lettuce, I was given a large plate / bowl of lettuce / rocket,... More

All looked nice upon arrival, staff very professional in their work, shame about the food. Carrot and Coriander soup was nic but only after lots of salt and pepper was added (maybe that's just personal choice though) this was followed by chicken with sauce, hard mash .......and we couldn't really make out, if it was cabbage, spinach or seaweed, and...

Me and my family went here for a Mother's Day meal. And I can say that it was worth every penny I paid. For £20 you get a buffet of starter and desert and a carvery for your main. This is the first time I've been here for food and I will for sure be returning. The staff were also... More

I went to this hotel yesterday for my friends birthday lunch. I was pleasantly surprised. Modern hotel, bright and airy with nice bright décor. The meal was fantastic. Had tomato tart, beef followed by crème brulee. I have to say this was one of the nicest meals I've ever had. Tasty. Service and staff great. Would definitely recommend this place... More

I held my 60th birthday lunch party at the Coniston on Saturday - it was amazing - food was great and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Individual dietary requirements were easily catered for. All my friends and family had a wonderful time.
