Me and my boyfriend stayed here in October 2012. We got a 2 night stay for 2 with breakfast on KGB deals for £99.
It is located a 2 minute walk from Bowness and the same distance to the nearest bus stop to take you everywhere else but with the benefit of being out of the centre so it's very quiet.
The communal rooms are as you would expect for a lakes hotel, warm, leather couches, views of the lake, cozy colours and very friendly staff. In fact the staff were excellent.
However the rooms were a big letdown. Very dark rooms with VERY dated decor and furniture. I was annoyed that they had obviously redone the bathrooms but cut cornered everywhere: they had retiled in lovely clean white tiles but only replaced 3 of the 4 down lighters and completely left the rusty light above the sink mirror. Also, they'd replaced the bath but not the bath surround which was yellow and tarnished. The worst thing was the shower; no pressure dial so it was like being pebble dashed with shards of glass. Also, the shower door had not been finished with the watertight seal so every time my boyfriend had a shower the whole bathroom was covered in water.
The bed however was very comfy. As was the quality quilt and pillows. Very
We personally didn't use the complimentary leisure facilities in the paired hotel but think its a lovely feature to offer.
Breakfast was lovely, with cereal, toast, fruit and a fry-up.
All in all it was lovely and an enjoyable stay but the photos on the site really don't reflect the majority of rooms and I would not pay full price, or anywhere near, to stay here.
The staff really are the saving grace of this hotel.
