We booked the hotel via booking.com and booked a junior suite. We arrived a couple of hours earlier than the 3pm check in and were welcomed and shown to the Courtyard suite. We unpacked and relaxed after our journey. The room was ground floor and right next to the road. There was much traffic that afternoon and we began to worry how noisy it would be during the night. That evening we walked into Coniston after asking at reception about the road in the night and was told that they didnt think it was too noisy and that the hotel was fully booked!
The Hotel has wonderful grounds, is within easy walking distance to Coniston and its numerous pubs and eating places. The staff were very pleasant and friendly. The breakfast is served in a light and airy room and is very tasty and sets you up for the day.
The only down side was THAT room. It is ridiculous, in my opinion, to put such a room on the ground floor and it did spoil our visit. Outside, only around 6ft from where you are sleeping, is a bus stop, while we were there two delivery lorries pulled up right outside the lounge window to make deliveries to the bar and kitchen and then at 06:30 on Thursday morning the bin men came! Not what you would expect for what was one , if not the, most expensive room in the hotel. Visit the hotel, you will enjoy it but do not book the Courtyard Suite!
