I am so pleased to have chosen Fayrer Garden from the advice of Trip Advisor. We have just returned from a 3 night stay and I have barely a bad word to say. Admittedly, the food in the restaurant was a tad hit and miss. We had extremely ropey starters but delicious mains and puddings on the night we ate there....and the view from the restaurant over the grounds and the lake are exceptional. The breakfast menu was extensive and mainly very good.
As a benchmark of how good this hotel was, my only complaint was that the pillows were uncomfortable! And while the hotel is beautiful, what really makes it in my eyes are the people that work there. Every single person that works at the Fayrer is exceptional - whether its the lovely young girl who makes up the rooms in the morning to the brilliant deputy manageress in the restaurant, the receptionist and waiting staff included. They really went the extra mile and helped make our stay so enjoyable. I have never had such universal good service.
One thing I would comment on though which is no criticism of Fayrer just a note. A lot of people on here are saying the hotel is a 15 minute walk from Bowness. We are very healthy, fit 30 somethings and I would say this is very misleading......more like 25 minutes on the way down and 40 on the way back as it is so uphill. Plus there is no path on the road so you need to take the back route into Bowness.
If you are looking for a relaxing stay in a beautiful hotel looking out over the Lake with impeccable service then this is the place for you
