Hi ryano1,

Delighted you had a great time at Brantholme back in 2012. We (the new owners) just wanted to let you know that we've just reopened after an eight month top-to-toe refurb.

If you were thinking about coming back to the Lake District in the future, feel free to give us a call or check out our new website (just Google 'Brantholme B&B').

Thanks for the review!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

In one room the shower was inoperable. In the other room there was only a bath with no shower over. The hotel was stuffy and hot because the heating is left on in the summer to dry guests walking gear. The host was friendly until we politely informed him of a problem and then he behaved quite aggressively. I stay in hotels more than 100 nights a year and this is my worst experience for some time. Beware cancellation policy: i had to pay nearly £200 for 2 nights accommodation because the prorprietor informed me at checkout that he requires 4 days cancellation notice for the room I did not use.

Hi Ruddered,

Thanks for your review - it's obvious you didn't have a nice stay way back in July 2014. I think you'll be pleased to hear that we (the new owners) have just completed an eight month top-to-toe refurbishment and have brought the B&B well up-to-date.

I hope you'll take a moment to view our website or social media channels. Maybe on a return visit you'd experience a very different Brantholme?

Hi COYS_AJB,

Wow - you stayed back in 2011 and only now are you getting a response. It's like finding a letter in a bottle!

It sounds like you had a nice time and while we can't take any of the credit (we only bought Brantholme B&B in 2014), we'd still love you to return and see the changes we've made. The whole building has been stripped back and refurbed to what we think is a very high standard.

So if you're ever heading West to the Lake District give us a buzz or see the website. Thanks again for your review!
