On behalf on myself, my partner Rosy and our beautiful new daughter Elizabeth i would like to thank you so much to Cathy, Dave, Dave, Nicola, Alex and everyone else who works at the Derwentwater hostel.
We booked them for a weekend to celebrate our daughter's birth along with both of our 30th birthdays, inviting all of our family and friends to share the occasion. From the second we walked in to have a look around, we knew we had found the right place. Excellent facilities, beautiful weather (which, for November, was not something we expected) and some wonderful food meant that everyone was fully entertained and well fed throughout. The absolute highlight, however, were the staff. Everybody made us feel so welcome and at home for the entire stay. All of our guests commented how friendly and accommodating everybody was and how comfortable we were made to feel.
I work in hospitality training and I must say that the phrase "going the extra mile" does not even begin to cover how much we appreciated the service received.
I would recommend this hostel to everyone. The facilities are better than most I have encountered at many hostels I have stayed in both home and abroad. The place was spotlessly clean (something not missed by our mothers and aunties). The surroundings are absolutely beautiful (with lovely Keswick a walk away) and we fully intend to return here again for another family party.
Thank you all so much.
