3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Bought a voucher from kgb deals to stay here but don't think I'd pay full price for it. First thing - you do not get a lake view as advertised!! Our room was basic but ok - the shower was excellent!! Breakfast was also very good. Just a short walk down to Lake Windermere and also a short walk to nearby Windermere. The hotel bar does not take payment by debit or credit card so be sure to have cash on you.

Not bad, not bad! Would say that our stay here was good! Booked a cheeky DBB here for good Friday, the room was disappointing, very small and noisy, however clean! Dinner and breakfast was lovely, and service fantastic! The downstairs of the hotel was tastefully decorated, and asked if we would stay again then the answer would be yes, but with a different room!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

Maybe I expected too much but I did pay a princely sum and I did tell them ahead of time it was a special occasion! I had paid extra for champagne to be in the room on arrival as an extra surprise for my partner's 60th birthday, but it wasn't there which meant I had to disappear to reception to ask for it, taking away the suprise element completely! Then even though it was agreed they would bring it at 6.30, by 6.45 still no sign, causing me to be pacing the room and my partner wondering what on earth was wrong! My second visit to reception revealed that they thought I meant I wanted it in the bar at 6.30 (wouldnt I have said that?) although it was nowhere to be seen in the bar.....eventually it arrived but by this time I'd had to tell my partner why I kept running off to reception, completely spoiling the surprise. The champagne came with a complimentary box of 9 chocolates but no apology.
Apart from that the hotel was very nice, the food at dinner and breakfast was excellent and the setting was nice. The lake view room which I'd paid exta for was a lot further away ffrom the waters edge than I'd expected even though I'd google mapped it when booking. The staff weren't particularly friendly and we certainly weren't made to feel special like a previous reviewer was due to staying there to celebrate a special occasion!

Stayed 12th/13th March. I booked this hotel together with some friends for my husband's birthday treat for 2 nights. During our stay we enjoyed an excellent evening meal in the restaurant where we were made to feel extremely special. Likewise our breakfast on both mornings was excellent. All staff that we came into contact with throughout our stay were extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. Our room (208) was very comfortable and beautifully decorated and the bed was heaven! We enjoyed a lovely evening meal out on our second nights stay at an Italian restaurant only a ten minute walk away. There are lots of places to visit within walking distance and the scenery is breathtaking. Full marks for this birthday celebration break. We will definintely be visiting again!

Room Tip: Our room (208) at the back of the hotel was extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated with love...

We spent 2 nights here as part of a KGB deal for a girls birthday break. The staff were very helpful and we had three very large and lovely rooms. Breakfast was great as was our waiter Damien who was so helpful and kind, we even brought our own Gluten free bread which he toast for us each morning, The hotel is in a great spot as its only a few mins walk in either direction to shops bars restaurants etc. We didnt eat in the restaurant but it looked lovely.
