On the down side the bar set out could do with a little background music so your every word could not be heard. Thank you to all the reception, serving and kitchen staff for making this...

This is a great Hotel to visit, from the warm reception staff, to the bar staff, waitresses and waiters nothing seems too much trouble. Warren took us under his wing immediately and made sure that whatever we needed was available. The Hotel has been undergoing some updating and rooms vary, we had chocolates on the bed to apologise for the...

A two night break at the Lakes - a chance to re-charge batteries, so it was a trip we had looked forward to very much. Our booking at this hotel was made by our sons as a present via a well known offer site and I can't help but think this has a bearing on what you get at hotels....

From the minute you walk in the door of this hotel you are made to feel welcome. A tour of the hotel is first so at least you know where everything is and the times of breakfast and dinner and the times the bar menu is available. Every member of staff was polite and courteous and very knowledgeable of the...

This is a lovely hotel on the edge of Lake Windermere, when we finally arrived (postcode doesn't take you anywhere close to hotel!) we were checked in swiftly and shown the facilities of the hotel. The room was at the back of the hotel, so no view apart from a hedge, fairly disappointing. The room medium size was warm a...
