We have just returned from spending a very pleasant stay at the Lamplighter.
All the staff were polite and nothing was too much trouble.
We stayed in room 5 which had a modern bath and shower and was extremely clean. I would say if you are a light sleeper perhaps ask for a room at the back of the building, as it can be quite noisy at tImes.
The breakfast was very nice, with plenty of choices, they even catered for me when I emailed ahead to ask if they supplied soya milk.
We ate in the restaurant once during our stay and the food was amazing, would have liked to have eaten there more, but our budget wouldn't run to it,
There is free wifi which worked fine for the first couple of days and then went on the blink, but when I pointed it out to the manager he did get it sorted on the last day, but that was a minor problem, and really wasn't important, that's how it is in the lakes.
The Lamplighter is very central and we used it as a base to explore this beautiful county. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance if you don't want to drive in the evening.
The car park is a bit small and it's hit and miss if you can get a space, depends what time you get back, but there is street parking, so again not too much of a problem.
I would defiantly recommend this delightful B&B for a relaxing stay in the lakes.
