Booked via external booking site, read reviews, and booked two nights with breakfast. Arrived early evening and we had booked 2nd night evening meal, after telephone confirmation by hotel. Excellent friendly welcome, offers of assistance, food / meal, and found a very clean well furnished room, lovely view of lake and grounds. Paper arrived early next morning, good hot shower. Down for breakfast, again very friendly welcome, coffee, tea, toast arrived, and a full Yorksire breakfast arrived, hot, good quality and portions, set up for days walking. The reception gave us a copy of the walks on the estate, and made us aware of other activities available. After a good days walk, and a visit to nearby Skipton, & Settle, arrived back, greeted by reception, and a cracking pot of tea for two in the lodge area. Refreshed we went on the Lakeland walk, well signed, and beautiful. Evening meal was excellent, there was a coach party staying, but that did not affect our meal, we enjoyed a 3 course meal, from the signature menu, and some wine, followed by coffee in the bar area. Never slept better, and having endured another excellent breakfast, we reluctantly had to leave. Will certainly visit again, all staff were polite, attentive, and very friendly. Even the cleaners were friendly. Excellent value for money, and probably the best hotel stay we have had in a long time. Good location, quiet. Thank you
