having just returned from atwo night stay at the skiddaw hotel i feel i must warn other people who intend to stay there.dont go on aweekend.friday morning4.30am we were woken out of sleep by clattering of metal poles out side of the hotel on the square on investigating wat the noise was we found it to be the outdoor market been assembled.this noise went on untill 9.00am.we didnt have to set the alarm for breakfast.metionig this at reception we were told that the market stalls were not supposed to be starting been errected till 6.30am which i thought was still a bit early.saturday night after retiering to our room the noise kicked off again but thi time from the pubs closing and people making their way to the night club sittuated at the side rear of the hotel.fom that time untill well after 3.30 am the noise was like a foot ball match coming out at full time shouting singing and swearing taxis coming and going and sounding there horns which if i am right should not be sounded after 11.00pm.we had no sleep watsoever in the two night stay.on the saturday afternoon we decided to try and have acouple of hours sleep before our evening meal.wat a pity the stalls were been dismanteled and the noise was twice as bad as the night before.and if i could of got my hands on the squalking parrot it would have been on the evening menu at the hotel. i must say that all the staff were very helpfull and could not fault them.the food was excellent.the rooms were very comfortable.yes i would return to thi hotel if they moved the market and nightclub to the middle of derwentwater.
