This hotel seems popular with groups due, I expect, to it's size and position. We were a group of around 30 walkers and there were also two other large groups of (non walkers) at the same time. The hotel coped incredibly well with all. Although the dining area was almost full, orders for food were taken and delivered without delays or complaint. There was a good choice of evening meals and breakfast was buffet style.
Outside of meal times the hotel did not seem overcrowded due to the large bar and a number of other rooms for people to socialise in. We discovered a games room in a basement which had snooker and table tennis tables and a dart board. We had difficulty locating the lights in here and it smelt rather musty.
There is plenty of parking space. The hotel is situated a short distant up a steepish hill from the main Bowness centre and may prove difficult for those with limited mobility. Otherwise it is in an excellent position for reaching the Windermere ferries or taking a walk directly from the hotel into the hills.
