Visited this hotel for my birthday with my husband via the Groupon deal. It's a lovely hotel with a lot of character. Our room was a little dated (23) but very clean with a lovely view of fields and sheep from our window. The 3 course dinner included on the first night was great quality and very tasty as was...

Thanks for staying. Your 5-bubble review lets us know we are doing a good job. There are little lambs popping up all over in the fields nearby, as it is just about Spring. That field your room overlooks sees its fair share of deer as well. Our little beakless wonder will have appreciated you feeding him; it can get a...

Stayed on a 2 night wowcher break and paid for a upgrade to a 4 poster jacuzzi room (room12) which has lovely views of the gardens.Food and service in the restaurant is excellent at both dinner and breakfast.

We were pleasantly surprised with the hotel and location as we had found the deal with Groupon at bargin price. We stayed in the Woodland Suite which was a good sized room for the three of us. We ate at the restaurant on the first night and couldn't fault the food we had and the deserts were delicious and well...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 night s through a groupon deal and we wernt disappointed. Nothing was a problem and staff very friendly. The rooms and general decor was slightly dated but the pool area was up to date and very clean. Food was delicious and the bar reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

Four of us, two couples, stayed for two nights recently. Staff were excellent. Food very good. Nice leisure facilities. That said, we would not stay there again for two reasons. The bedroom we stayed in, needed more than a lick of paint. Also the hotel is to far out of Bowness (£13 in a taxi) for our liking. We paid...

It's a little more difficult to review having been given a groupon voucher as a gift but here goes. We found the hotel located greatly just a few minutes from bowness, (we actually started down at fell foot and ended up in Ambleside). The pool is adequate and the lounge (with a nice open fire) was lovely. The staff where...

Thank you for your review. I sincerely apologise for the issues during your stay. The heating is on a timer, but as you turned the heat off during the night in the room, when the central heating kicked back on in the early morning, it would not have overridden the controls in the room. There was a burst pipe somewhere...
