Back to our usual room, 'Todd cragg,' together with out two dogs. We love this particular room because of the sizabl bedroom, lounge area, balcony and hot tub. Very quite room. The staff as always were friendly.and helpful. The restaurant and food was up to its usual high standard.

Great location in the middle of town with parking (don't know if there is a cost). Lounge areas are particularly relaxing. Lots of choice for breakfast from hot to cold to continental. Plenty of staff always available to help.

Only actually stopped in this hotel a couple of times but we use it most weekendsfor afternoon/evening drinks. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and modern. The food in the restaurant is excellent with the best breakfast in the Lakes! We haven't used the spa but the swimming pool and hot tub are very welcoming after a day of climbing...

We stayed here for a 4 night break and found the hotel excellent in every respect. The room was spacious and the bed was really comfortable. All staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the town and were able to recommend local walks. The breakfast was one of the best I've had in a hotel and the evening meals were tasty...

Room was better than expected for single occupancy and bed very comfortable. Balcony was a lovely extra I hadn't anticipated. Used spa bath in parents rooms which was heavenly. Jacuzzi outside was amazing, could've spent my entire day in there. Lovely wide range of food for breakfast and dinner. We ate there each morning and most evenings, with great service...

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a really lovely time. The Hotel is fantastic and the staff were great throughout from helping us to find somewhere to park to checking us out at the end of our stay. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was delicious and the staff really attentive and friendly

This place does stand out looking at the exterior but once inside is looks great and is very comfortable. Booked one of the suite rooms and was not disappointed. The room had a nice view overlooking the river and had a hot tub on the balcony. Leisure facilities were very good and very clean. Little bit on the pricey side...
