We had a Living Social voucher for a two day stay, with dinner on the first night. Also included was a voucher for a cruise on Lake Windermere, which altogether made it a great value deal. On the basis of others' comments about rooms on this site we went for a room upgrade at £20 per night, and that was...

This hotel features on many 'deal' sites probably as it is a few miles outside Bowness and not in a village location. We booked direct with the hotel and got a great deal with the best rooms. The hotel is in a rural location near Crossthwaite, don't worry about a room with a view just go outside, its everywhere. Away...

Wonderful review thank you. We love our location which, as you say, is away from all the bustle. We like your tip as well, it is always better to ring us direct (or go to our website) for the best deals and to talk through exactly what you are looking for. Thanks again.

We booked at the last minute due to a good weather forecast in the Lake District. Check in was friendly and efficient. Our room was overlooking a courtyard with kitchen and staff areas, so no views, but was comfortable and clean. Shower attachment to bath taps was a bit of a pain to use but otherwise room was fine.

We have enjoyed reading your review and we appreciate your visit. We think your review highlights some of our excellent qualities like the quality of our food, friendly staff and accommodation. When the weather cooperates, there is no better place to be. Even when it doesn't, we are still a great place to visit! Thank you.

We stayed at the hotel for three nights to attend a family wedding. The setting of this hotel is beautiful with its own duck pond and the garden of flowers blooming with vibrant colours. These made a lovely backdrop for the wedding photographs. The hotel room was very spacious, which featured a four poster bed and a jacuzzi bath more...

Ok, so where do you begin. On booking this hotel it did seem appealing on the internet and they said it would be a romantic getaway but unfortunately it did not live up standards. On entering the driveway of the hotel it looked very tired and in need of a good strong coffee to wake it up. When walking into...

What a disappointing review to read! We think our tin would say 'great value breaks, friendly staff and delicious food'. It appears we let these guests down, which is of course a shame. We take great pride in our reviews on here, the vast majority of which give us plaudits for our excellent quality food, comfortable accommodation and top-notch staff....

We stayed here as part of a voucher deal so had two nights and a dinner. Initially I was a bit skeptical as our room was very small and a bit run down. We didn't have a shower curtain and the shower attachment wasn't attachable to the wall so had to hold the hose over your head to have a...

This hotel offers something for everyone - from ducks who come to breakfast and dinner to pool and spa facilities. Staff are efficient and friendly, the rooms are comfortable and individual, food is fresh and locally sourced and the grounds are lovely to walk round or just to sit with a drink and enjoy watching the aforementioned ducks.

We love the wording of your review, thank you for posting it. We do seem to have quite a few birds in the area don't we but we think our ducks are the friendliest and most intriguing to watch! Thank you again for all of your comments and we'll look forward to seeing you again.

We were hoping to read a few more reviews from our wedding guests. We were delighted to play our small part and that we could help the day go so smoothly.
