This hotel is in a very picturesque location at the bottom of Windermere over looking the river Leven. The spa and swimming pool are second to none however the pool is a bit on the small side if you want to swim lengths it's more for just relaxing which is what this place is all about chilling in a warm friendly atmosphere.
The hotel is finished to a good standard and enjoys a good bar and restaurant, they have also used the outdoor space well with tables and chairs set out next to the river where you can eat and drink in peaceful surroundings.
The rooms are well proportioned with plenty of storage good size bathroom/shower etc air con which it needs in the summer, however my only criticism is when people refurb hotels why do they put in such thin walls you can hear people next door and also in the corridor which is annoying to say the least but apart from that it's ok.
The food was excellent with plenty of choice, you are however a captive audience there is only one other place nearby where you can go to eat and drink and this is another hotel ( The Newby Bridge Hotel) the food is reasonably priced however the wine is dear you will pay £20 a bottle for something that will cost £6 in a super market having said that you know this when you go hope this has been of help.

The Swan Inn at Newby Bridge has become the restaurant we visit the most on our weekend escapes to the Lakes. We try to avoid the hustle and bustle of Windamere and Bowness.

The Swan appeals to me because of it's high standard of meals. The staff are efficient, polite and professional. The decor perfectly matches the Cumbria setting and it has a wonderful atmosphere. It doesn't matter when we've been, it's always been busy, but despite this, we've never had to wait longer than expected for a meal.

This is the perfect spot for a Sunday lunch, romantic evening meal or even a relaxing few drinks with friends.

This is a great hotel that I have frequented on many occasions and stayed there on three occasions. The staff are extremely friendly and the location is very good. I am not sure how they calculate the prices and they appear to have gone up again. I will go elsewhere from now on! Try the pubs in Cartmel as they are excellent and 40% better priced.

Stopped by for a meal on the recommendation from a receptionist at another hotel and we weren't disappointed. A lovely sunny day and a meal by the river watching the ducks.the food wasn't cheap but was good quality and looking at the tables around us all the dishes looked good. The children's play area was good and it may have been nice to eat here but couldn't so had drinks while the one played.
