My husband and I returned for the second time this year to this tranquil and welcoming hotel. The staff are most attentive and ensure that all guests' needs are catered for promptly and efficiently. From Ray and Stephen on Reception (one of their many duties) and Attila overseeing guests' dining requirements, to the staff in the bar, restaurant and cleaning operatives, anything required was immediately attended to. All was done with a certain passion and eagerness to ensure guests received top quality service and were 100% satisfied.
We were booked in for both breakfast and evening meal and fully enjoyed the whole experience. A very good choice of all the various courses for both times of day, were on offer and were served and presented beautifully with just about the right time to wait between courses. The food tasted delicious and we were delighted with the excellent quality of ingredients used. The hotel has a good sized bar and serve a vast array of light bites, meals, breakfasts etc. We did enjoy some delicious soup and Tempura Prawns and would have tried their extensive menu, had we not booked for the evening meal. Well worth a try.
We were in Room 22, on the second floor, which was very comfortable. I had selected this room after viewing the hotel's website gallery, but probably would have not been disappointed with any of the rooms, judging by the various well furnished rooms on offer.
The hotel is situated about a quarter of a mile from Lake Buttermere and takes only 10 mins walk or a little longer if strolling. A good point to mention is that it is all on the flat when walking to the Lake and from then on, walkers have options to walk around the Lake, or up the fells.
All in all, we had a great couple of days and will certainly be returning in the not too distant future.
Thank you again, Ray, Stephen, Attila and to the rest of your team for making our getaway break, such a special experience.
