After trying various options for our New Year Break, we found an excellent value for money, very friendly and most enjoyable package at the Skiddaw Hotel. The rooms were a very good size and newly redecorated. All the meals had a very good selection for all courses and the New Year could be celebrated after the excellent Gala Dinner, which included the piping of the Haggis, with a disco or a solo artist.
The main attraction is that the hotel is on the square where hosts of people gather to bring in the New Year. Previously, the timing of the New Year was rather haphazard as the clock in the square had only one hand but, this year, the Skiddaw Hotel had had a clock installed which counted down to bring 2013 in with a great cheer.
However, our memories will also include the special relationship that the staff fostered with all the visitors. The service was excellent.
They were very helpful as one of our party was a wheelchair user.
We have booked already for a third time and hope that we will continue to enjoy these New Year Breaks.
