We booked this hotel as we found a good deal with Travel Zoo, which included B&B with dinner. It is an excellent location for exploring the Eastern side of the Lake District. The Hotel has lots of character and some very impressive rooms, including a beautiful Ballroom. The Hotel appears to have been recently refurbished and although maybe not to everyones taste it looks smart. The staff were really nice and helpful and the food was good but not outstanding. They even provide pack-lunches which is great. There is a small secure car park at the back of the hotel, it seems to get pretty busy but we managed to get a space each evening.
The wi-fi was brilliant but the TV in our room had very limited channels, and in particular no news channel.
