This was a surprise booked for me by my husband and it was an excellent choice. I echo all the other comments about the super staff and their enthusiasm and willingness to help in any way.
We were in Grisedale, a superior room, spacious with lovely views out towards Keswick. After some hiccups on our first evening with the heating/hot water there was a plentiful supply of both. The bathroom was very clean, with nice big towels and a powerful shower. Pool towels and robes are also supplied - though you may want to bring flip flops to walk to the pool!
The pool area itself was perhaps looking a little tired but the water temperature was very pleasant and the Jacuzzi great. We were surprised how quiet it was too, had the pool to ourselves the majority of the time. We didn't use the sauna. I'm sure the views out from the pool would have been lovely too but it was completely steamed up because of the weather outside and the temperature inside.
Downstairs there are 2 lovely lounges, one with a roaring log fire, and supplied with magazines, books and games. There is also a more contemporary garden room. The small bar area is very comfortable too - excellent local gin by the way, Langtons.
We ate in the restaurant on both evenings and the food was excellent - the 4 course dinner has plenty of choice, both meat, fish and vegetarian. There is also a very good wine list - lots of Spanish wines of course but a good selection of others as well. I can particularly recommend the cinnamon pannacotta - delicious! Service was attentive though at times a little too quick for our liking and we used a few ploys to slow things down. After all, food of this quality needs to be savoured!!
Breakfast was also very good and it makes a nice change for it to be served rather than the ubiquitous buffet. Our slight quibble is that sliced bread for toast is a let down (especially after the lovely bread on offer at dinner) and that what I'm pretty sure was Golden Shred marmalade is also disappointing - isn't there a major marmalade competition hosted in a stately home not far from here?
It is in an ideal position if you like walking the fells, or even just along the road at the back of the hotel for great views towards Keswick and the lake. It's a short drive into Keswick itself and handily placed for getting to lots of places.
Would we return - yes!
