We enjoyed two nights at the Waterhead in March this year and were lucky enough to have fabulous sunshine - perfect walking weather. This meant we didn't spend too much time in our room, which was the one thing that let the hotel down as it was rather old-fashioned and a little threadbare. However, the bed was comfortable, and the view from our window beautiful. The welcome from the lady on reception was excellent - she was very friendly throughout our stay, and breakfast was pleasant, particularly with the views to enjoy from the large picture windows. The hotel is in a great location for setting straight out for a walk, whether just a gentle stroll across the footpath across the fields by Coniston to the lovely Bluebird Cafe, or a walk up to Tarn Hows (we're not hardy enough to walk up the Old Man)! We stayed at the Waterhead on a voucher deal, so for what we paid it was great value and my rating reflects this - but I would have been disappointed with the hotel due to the quality of our room if we had paid full price. However, I would be happy to stay here again on another deal, especially once the rooms have all been re-furbished!
