Stayed two nights during road trip to celebrate parents Golden Wedding. Staff very attentive, location wonderful, rooms very well appointed, views of snow capped Lake District breath taking. Food of a particularly high standard, taken in very pleasing dinning room with open fire. Perfect stay made all the more special by the friendly and caring staff.

superbly organized hotel, food was excellent, service faultless, we had our staff xmas party at this hotel 2015, great atmosphere and friendly staff, a couple of party games which were good and not too intrusive.
