We have just come back from a 2 night stay at this hotel we bought on Groupon including 4 course dinner on the first night and breakfast 2 mornings.
I could not praise the staff enough in this hotel, we got their early so we popped In to reception to ask them if we could leave the car which of course was no problem and then headed down to Bowness-on-Windermere, which I find is a nicer walk, closer to the hotel & a better place to visit than Windermere. We came back for check in and we were greeted by lovely (young, brown haired receptionist - didn't catch her name) who checked us in and then showed us to the room, something I found to be a lovely touch. We were in room 31 and it suited us nicely, big zip & link bed (which didn't bother us at all as some people could be fusey about that) that was very comfortable, lovely bathroom, no view unfortunately but that's fine.
We booked in for dinner and were a bit apprehensive but we yet again were greeted by a lovely man (who seemed could of been restaurant manager?) who showed us to our seat with a lovely view (all tables had great view) and once our food came out with was not only presented brilliantly but tasted so good we really enjoyed it and were pleasantly surprised! Breakfast yet again was excellent. well done to the chefs behind the scenes!
I could not fault the staff enough they were so friendly, down to earth and hardworking, credit to management and the owners.
Room was spotless so well done housekeeping!
Id recommend Bowness-on-Windermere whilst staying here and it is a lovely walk down but I did not fancy the walk back up hill (Taxi from Bowness to the hotel doors is only £4!)
Only snag is hotel bar I felt was slightly over priced.
Loved this trip so much, such amazing views, we will be coming back as we got engaged at Lake Windermere which makes It more special and we will be using this hotel!
