“Excellent quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

The hotel has improved in terms of service and quality of bedrooms in the past year. I have used the hotel twice in the past few months and it as good as any hotel in the area. This part of Cumbria suffers from a lack of good quality hotels where service and value matters. Will stay again.

We are frequent visitors to the Trout restaurant and The Terrace, we have been very disappointed with the food in the restaurant, getting scooped mashed potatoes and veg is nothing more than school dinner presentation for a 4 star establishment. Fillet steak has been poor and sea bass has been overcooked. I was recently in the Terrace with friends 3 of them had Christmas Turkey Dinner once again scooped mash and veg, very poor presentation, did the Chefs train in school canteens, presentation of food is the first step to a great experience! Disappointing again. Staff and service always good.

We eat here a lot as it's always a sure bet and we've never been disappointed. The staff are great here- they are always so polite and you can tell there's good camaraderie.
The food is really good with great anti pasta and nibbles options- and quality surroundings.
Nice wine and good real ale - what more could you ask for!

Room Tip: Sorry, we didn't stay the night as we're local anyway.

A special overnight stay in one of the Executive River Rooms which was delightful from start to finish. The team are so friendly and genuine, lovely welcome, the room was beautiful and comfortable. Lovely dinner in the Terrace restaurant with local food and again great service and an excellent breakfast following on from a restful nights sleep.
The staff in the hotel seem to pride themselves on their service and they do a great job, they make you feel like family.
Will definitely be back and can highly recommend - a great place to put your feet up

Room Tip: The river view rooms are lovely

Stayed at the trout on Thursday 21/11/2013 with my father
Cant speak to highly of this hotel stayed in room 219 it was a junior sweat which was absolutely lovely very large with fire and attached second bedroom, bed very comfortable.
Must say extremely impressed with the room
Went down for some food and a couple of drinks great service and good food one small criticism was paper napkins not impressed with them but hey it's trip advisor we have to find something wrong
Breakfast next day more of the same great food locally sourced and good service
Stand out guy was Richard we was staying at the hotel because unfortunately was there for my much loved uncle Brian's funeral and Richard had to put up with me and my dad having a couple to many reminiscing so well done Richard the medals in the post
Can't wait to go back under happier circumstances
Big well done to the management and staff that's what good looks like

We've stayed at the Trout a few times and recently stayed there for a long weekend break. The hotel manages to combine the quality of a 4 star with the friendliness of a family run business. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but the bistro was extremely good value, with nicely presented food. It was very popular, but even at the busiest times the service was still good. A special mention for housekeeping who provided a clean room with a sparkling bathroom, while replenishing every single consummable from our tea/coffee tray, ...every day. That's a first in our experience.

Measured in terms of value for money, this is a good all round hotel.
