We didn't book in for an overnight stay, but went for the offer of Splash and Swim which is full use of the Leisure Centre if you book for Sunday Lunch.
We arrived mid morning and after signing at in the main reception, went through to the Leisure Centre for a couple of hours for sauna, steam room and swimming. The Leisure Centre staff were very helpful supplying us with free tea and coffee and cold drinks for the kids as well as towels and free newspaper.
The facilities are fine, (The pool is much better than The Lodore at Derwent Water) although the Jacuzzi was out of order that day. Good showers, hairdryer and toiletries in the changing room.
We took our free drinks out into the lovely garden before lunch in the restaurant.
The restaurant was very good. Service was excellent, and the menu very good value for money. Decent quality, good sized portions. £13.25 for two course or £17.50 for three courses including filter coffee or tea. There was also a kid's menu or the alternative of eating a half portion from the main menu at half price.
The staff were very attentive and suggested our kids may like to use the Games Room in between courses. They even went to retrieve them for us when the food arrived.
We then finished off with an hour or so in their lovely gardens overlooking Siddaw.
All in all a very pleasant experience, 5 star service, good quality food and excellent value for money.
