We booked though Travel Republic and at a lower rate , so were assigned to room 11, up 2 flights of stairs, at the back of the house. However, the room was of an excellent standard, having been recently refurbished.
The weather was poor, clouds hanging over the hills; maybe the reason why the Internet didn't work in our room, but it did work close to reception. Our mobile Internet didn't work either on our Vodafone network.
We arrived at 5pm on a Saturday and managed to park outside, so were able to unload. We were given a free parking permit, for one of the 2 car parks, the Town Car park/ or the Theatre By the Lake car park. Parking outside Lakeside House is not permitted between the hours of 10am - 4pm during the summer, between Easter - end of October.
Breakfast was cooked to order and there was plenty of choice. We were told that there were plenty of pubs in the town for evening meals. We tried the 'Dog and Gun,' on Saturday night and made our way to the only vacant table. It was here that I stepped on a dog, who was partially under a table. I'm not sure who was more shocked. We had an excellent 2 course Sunday Lunch at the Skiddaw Hotel in the town centre.
Lakeside House was close to the park and a 5 minute walk away from Derwentwater and the Theatre on the Lake. This was important to us as my husband was singing at the Theatre on Sunday evening.
We had a good stay; a shame about the weather.
