We had a one night stay at Appleby Manor whilst in the Lakes hot air ballooning.
The hotel is nice. We had a room in the external annexe, with our car parked right outside. It's only a few metres into the main hotel.
Reception and check in was smooth. We were given a tour of the hotel and then taken to our room. We had booked on a deal which included fruit meringue and bubbles on arrival and a four course dinner.
The restaurant was nice. Food was good, but not amazing. We both had the cod which was a little bland, however the starters and desserts were both nice. Service was good.
We had used the spa facilities, which are a little tired. The steam room was out of order, the sauna took ages to get warm (not hot) and that part of the hotel feels overdue for a refresh.
Beautiful views from the conservatory.
Would we return? Definitely. The positives far outweighed the negatives, but the negatives were enough to knock my rating down to just four stars.
