Me and my four aged friends stayed here in late October. The building is quite impressive for the village. On entering the porch you are confronted by several notices which tell you what you can and can't do. We were to find similar ones throughout the hotel. My favourite was the one next to the open fire: "Don't mess with the fire, ask a member of staff". By the end of my stay I was quite attached to these notices and began to see them in a different light since they must get some right idiots staying here attempting the 3 peaks for the first time.
The young lass who greeted us was friendly and efficient. The rooms were adequate. The bath was a boon for aching bones and the hot water plentiful (the only notice missing was to warn you about the scalding temperature!).
Dinner was good to very good (comments from five of us). Beer was grand. Again full marks to the serving girl who was brilliant. Landlord chatted to us and was friendly enough in spite of the manic behaviour of one of our party.
Breakfast was a bit variable - the sausage on day 2 was definitely not right - this needs looking into. Service by the friendly woman at breakfast made up for it though. She was gradely!
I'd stay here again. I think some of the negative comments are a reflection of the commentor's namby pamby up bringing. And as for dogs - apart from working dogs I wouldn't allow them in the valley, let alone the hotel.
