My husband booked this 'hotel' for our 10th wedding anniversary. I can now see by looking at the website that you may be fooled into thinking this is a luxurious hotel. We were given a pokey dark room that had a tiny bedroom you could not swing a cat in and for £100/night I would imagine that you would expect a hot breakfast. The breakfast is only serve yourself continental and the tables are crammed in - we were told that you may have to stand and wait for a table. The owner I imagine has gone for minimal effort for maximum price when it comes to running her hotel. We told the hotel owner how disappointed with the room we were and she just said 'oh' without any offers to change to a larger room. Some of the rooms are much larger but if you are given a small room then these rooms surely should cost less. Absolutely gutted because we love the lakes and at £100/night this was an extravagant 'treat' for us.
