Well, I think I must have visited a different hotel to the one most reviews suggest. This was a decidedly mediocre night's stay. We were in a room (Room 1) which was in need of updating / renovation. A number of damp patches on the wall and a generally tired look to the room.
Food was poor, crispy belly pork had a flabby skin (both of us had this so it was no one off) and the vegetables were underdone.
The barman was less than knowledgeable. We had a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon which was OKish and I went to the bar for another, he gave me a bottle with a different coloured label which, when I got back to the table, turned out to be a bottle of Merlot (which had already been opened and a glass taken out of it). This was changed when I took it back to the bat - no apology.
Breakfast orders were both slightly wrong, but at least the breakfast was cooked to order.
We may have been unlucky, but we've chalked this one down to experience!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the Edenhall Country House and Restaurant. Our independently run hotel dates back to the mid 17th century, and offers excellent accommodation just 5 minutes from Penrith and the M6 (J40). The village of Edenhall is ideally located for exploring the Lake District and situated in the beautiful Eden Valley, nestling between the rugged Pennine hills and the spectacular Lakeland fells. With 20 en-suite rooms, some of which are pet friendly, we are larger than most B&Bs, but smaller and more intimate than many other Cumbrian hotels, making Edenhall Country House the ideal place for a short bed and breakfast break or a longer holiday. Set in over an acre of beautifully maintained gardens, Edenhall Country House is one of a number of Cumbrian hotels that makes a fabulous setting for civil weddings and wedding celebrations. The hotel is also available for functions including family parties and gatherings as well as conferences during the week. Our restaurant serves home cooked food using the best local produce. For more casual dining, bar meals are available along with a menu of light snacks throughout the day. The large open fire becomes a focal point on cooler evenings, whereas in warmer weather, you are free to enjoy the beer garden or relax in our large conservatory. Free internet access via wifi is available throughout the hotel. ... more less
