We selected this hotel based on Tripadvisor comments and stayed one night on bed and breakfast.
Easy to find and very central for all Lake District attractions. Checking in was pleasant and quick and partner's bag carried to the room by staff. We booked a table for dinner again based on reviews on here.
Our first floor room had a very nice view of the lake overlooking the main road which we thought might be noisy but in fact was very quiet and did not disturb us at all. The room was well laid out with everything you need and a large shower in the spotlessly clean bathroom.
The hotel was warm which was good as the outside temperature was around zero and we had a drink in the bar before going through for dinner. I had Lakeland Lamb and my partner had the Braised Blade of Beef. Both were excellent and tasty. We are small eaters so did not choose a starter but those being served around us looked very appetising.
Breakfast was served in the dining room from 8 till 12 (that must be a record!). Again the service and choice was well above average and we can highly recommend both the hotel and the food for Lake District visitors. We would have no hesitation in returning.
