We spent the weekend hear and had a lovely couple of nights. We arrived before check in time and it took a while to find someone to help us but when we did they were very friendly and helpful and had no problem with us checking in early.
The room was lovely, very clean with modern decor, was a good size and had a good ensuite. Especially clean considering that the hotel is dog friendly, we saw no sign of this in the room.
The breakfast was very good, cooked to order and exactly what we needed to start the day. We ate in the restaurant on the first night. The food was great, I had steak and ale pie and my girlfriend had the fish pie. Both were delicious but we couldn't get close to finishing the fish pie between us! We had planned for 3 courses but there was no way we could manage a dessert! We ate out the second night but left room came back to the hotel for dessert, we both had chocolate fudge cake, which was exactly as it should be... Nothing spectacular, but still very tasty.
Would recommend both the hotel and the restaurant to everyone, just be prepared for the large portions and don't stay here if you want to be in the middle of the action, it is in a small hamlet a few miles from Appleby. Well worth the drive tho, in some lovely countryside. Take the scenic routes along the back-roads and across the moors, a beautiful part of the country.
