Booked this as a treat for our 35th wedding anniversary but found the whole experience very disappointing from the check in to the check out.

Brilliant to see this fantastic hotel open again after such a difficult year, it's obvious that the work the owners have had done wasn't just to reopen the hotel but to upgrade it too, everything is brand new and top quality but it still has that warm welcoming feel, the staff were fantastic and couldn't be more helpful, the food...

We had the misfortune of staying at the hotel on Friday December 2nd, the second night it re-opened after refurbishment following last year's flood. However, we were unaware of this fact until we checked in. All in all our experience was pretty disastrous.  We had no heating in our room which was totally unacceptable for this time of the year...

We stayed here for a family location. It is close to Ullswater and is in the heart of the village of Glenridding. The room we stayed in was very clean and nicely furnished. The restaurant is excellent. There is a small indoor pool to enjoy and the walking in the area is great.
