After our first stay at the acclaimed 4 star lakeside hotel we came home with mixed emotions.
firstly on arrival we we're greeted with a extremely warm welcome by a lovely young lady named Ruth.
after being shown to our room we accepted a booking time for our evening meal with great pleasure (4 hours travelling makes you rather hungry)... We had great expectations for our meal however they were not upheld.. the portions are rather on the small size and we did not know that we had to order vegetables and potatoes separately. The flavours couldn't be faulted and the service was outstanding. We unfortunately left only half full after 3 courses.
We retired to an early night after a long day, hoping for a good fill at breakfast.
the breakfast was as expected and having a good feed we enjoyed a day out walking in bowness and out on the lake which is beautiful..
Thinking ahead we had some lunch before heading back to the hotel.
the evening meal was again fantastic on the eye and pallet however there was a sour taste left in our mouths after watching a un-named manager grope a waitress which she didn't look very happy with to say the least he realised that we had seen him and shuffled off (not to be seen again). The lovely waitress brushed it off professionally and didn't look phased When we asked if she was okay.
the room was lovely and clean throughout our stay but the indecent manager spoilt our overall opinion of the hotel we would return again but it is rather expensive.
Service was outstanding
food was tasty but shy on size
rooms clean and comfy
price was not too excessive Special occasions only
