“Fantastic staff, disappointing rooms :(”
Reviewed January 12, 2008

My fiance and I stayed here on January 11th on the look out for somewhere to get married. We arrived when it was dark and the lady at reception was really quick and very friendly. In fact, all of the staff were incredibly pleasant and friendly. The biggest disappointment was the bedroom. We were in room 2, which was up the gorgeous staircase and in the corner.

Plus
The room was big and had a fantastic view of the Windermere shore and the hills. The staff were really frendly and the bar food was nice.

Minus
The decoration was not in keeping with the hotel and looked cheap and chintzy. In particular, all of the fabrics felt man made and cheap. The double bed was two singles pushed together with a granny type blanket on it. The carpet felt like plastic. In addition the tap fell off the bath when I turned it on and there was an electric heater in the room. It's such a shame, because if they had just spent some extra money on furnishings this would be an amazing place to have a wedding. Another bone of contention was the thiness of the walls! I woke up to hear some woman talking to a bloke called Chris and I thought they were in the same room. Let's just say that we could hear the bathroom noises so clearly we thought we were sharing the facilities!

Looks like it's back to the drawing board!

We had our wedding here on July 31st 2007 and it was perfect,everything was just how we wanted it.We only had a small wedding,just five of us in total.The staff couldn't of been more helpful in helping us with our plans.everyone there is so freindly and helped to make our day a day to remember.
The hotel itself is beautiful we all stayed overnight in the superior lake view rooms were the views were breathtaking.after our ceromony we had our photographs taken in gardens which are a credit to the hotel,also the pictures we had taken in the hotel were stunning,such a lovely place,so glad we found it and will certainly be going back.
I would like to say also the food we had was very nice,we had a meal after the wedding which we all enjoyed and breakfast was relaxed and enjoyable.
Overall i would recommend anyone planning there wedding to go and visit the hotel as it is a place that must be seen.

I agree that the Hotel is a beautiful old house, and it is quite stunning both inside and out. The views from the hotel are lovely, but the rooms are dated and need refurbishing. I expected standards of cleanliness and quality that were not met in the rooms. We stayed in the room which had been previously named the room with the best view from a national newspaper(from the balcony area outside), and it was stunning, but it was overlooked by the driveway which meant it was not private at all! The bathroom had cracked tiles and the room had outdated decor that needed refurbishing.

The restaurant was a real treat and the view from it was wonderful (the glass could have been done with being cleaner!). It is a very romantic location and a wedding party was enjoying themselves when we stayed there, but I think it needs updating in the rooms to really warrant a higher rating.
