I've just returned from a weekend at this wonderful hotel and all I can say is I loved every minute and every thing about it! OK, it may be not to everyone's taste but if you want a boutique hotel experience I'm sure there are plenty of places around and it's pretty clear when you look at the website that this is more traditional and that's what I loved after the sterile corporate places I stay in with work! Maybe I couldn't see the flaws or signs of it being 'dated' because I wear glasses but they weren't evident to me.
We got a really good deal through Voyage Prive so paid £280 for 2 nights bed breakfast and dinner for two. Usually these 'deal' sites mean that you get the lowest cost room but I was very pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a lake view room on arrival without asking - and what a view it was!
Almost without exception, all members of the (mainly Hungarian I was told) staff were polite and friendly and a real credit to the hotel.
The bar area was lovely with the views across Derwentwater. Bar prices were reasonable given the glorious setting.
Our upgraded lake view room was very nice indeed - although in the front extension which was rather ugly from the outside(what were the planners thinking back then!!) it was beautifully furnished with an incredibly comfy large bed.
The food at dinner both nights was exceptional and beautifully presented and didn't feel at all rushed even though one night we booked for 8.30.
I can't comment on the spa was we were out walking all day but the gardens looked super and I can imagine on a summer's day the outdoor pool would be amazing.
Just a wonderful weekend at a hotel that I drove past in my 20's (when it was the Lodore Swiss) when camping in Keswick and never dreamed I'd get to stay here!
