Stayed for 3 nights, a snow weekend, walking and chilling. A great base close to the fells, Keswick n Grasmere. Food very nice, breakfasts good with plenty of choice. Room 4 is a four poster which is a great size and one of the few rooms with a deep bath. On the front so great views, albeit the road is busy with traffic noise. Staff very friendly n helpful certainly recommend it.
The place is a pub n restaurant too and has been recently refurbished and new management. Bar area has lost the traditional charm it used to have which was sad as it is rather contemporary now, however is still welcoming and worth a visit. No more roaring log fires but a good place to visit in the good weather!
