Lovely,quiet hotel situated between ambleside and bowness(20 mins and 40 mins walk respectively) just off the main lake road.with ample parking and well kept grounds surrounded by trees.my wife and i arrived just after our reception to a rather bland reception at the hotel (not told what to do,apart from meal times) and given our keys to our room (no 19).Room was nicely decorated,10ft by 9ft roughly,with telephone,and very nice bathroom and bath/shower.although view from window was just a wall and ivy.the bed was 2 single beds pushed together with clean,comfortable linen.Tv was small 15-17" with limited freeview channels (15-20,mostly due to location) and same for internet (slow speed,frequent disconnects).carpets are in need of replacing, noticable wear.
Food is excellent! a big thank you chef! we loved the cream bee next to the sticky toffee pudding,very creative!
room cleaners-thankyou,brilliant job! (remember to set your door tags visitors or they clean for the fun of it!)
seeing or contacting staff does seem to be difficult (ie.well after dinner) when they are not performing set routines.
guests in hotel were 40's-60's of age about 10 in total.
all in all,for the price we paid it was ok.But at full price we doubt we would do this again.just an ok hotel-a little more work and this would be a gem.
