Stayed here for just one night. All the staff are so friendly, at check-in and including everyone in the bar/restaurant, at breakfast and also the cleaning staff. We really enjoyed our stay. We had a superior room set apart from the main building but all the rooms looked nice. It is right by the Lake and has a car park....

Excellent location right on Lake Windermere, the rooms were fantastic, spacious and pristine. The evening meal was excellent, presentation was great and the staff professional and friendly. Breakfast was equally as good. Not the cheapest accommodation available, but really good value for your money.

Clean comfortable and spacious room. Outstanding breakfast and pleasant helpful staff. Add to this the relaxed atmosphere in the bar area and excellent food either as a bar meal or in the restaurant and you have a hotel that deserves a maximum rating.

Very friendly, welcoming and efficient staff, nothing too much trouble. Room was spacious,very clean and warm. Tastefully decorated and very comfy bed and pillows. Loved the excellent choice of cooked breakfast (locally produced sausage etc) and filter coffee (from Kendal) was first class.
