We stayed for a two night weekend having booked a lake view room. We were delighted to be upgraded to a superior lake view room at no extra cost. However, we were surprised to discover that it smelt strongly of stale tobacco smoke which we were unable to remove completely even though we left windows wide open. In fairness the management display notices reminding guests of the 'no smoking' law, but obviously find it difficult to enforce!
The food on both nights was outstanding and the service excellent with helpful young staff and attentive manager. The dining room has good views of Lake Windermere and the hills beyond. We disliked the awful piped music which so often ruins a hotel's atmosphere. It is so peaceful at the Fayrer Garden and such lovely views do not deserve Doris Day at dinner nor Lakeland Radio for breakfast!! On this point, breakfast was also well presented with plenty of choice and delicious ingredients.
Good parking and pretty gardens, with a large terrace which will be very pleasant in the summer. A very relaxing stay.
