We stayed for two night there in February and I have to say it was possibly the best experience Ive had with a hotel. It had recently been acquired by new proprietors and they have made a 1st class job of the running and presentation of the place. Firstly I have to mention the staff who are all so friendly,...

I forgot to write a review but myself and my husband visited this time last year and it was perfect. The weather was cold, but clear and the walks we had around the hotel and into Ambleside and to Lake Windermere and Bowness were fantastic. We walked to Grassmere one day too to the famous (and amazing) gingerbread place. Everything...

We stayed in the Loughrigg suite as we were a party of three - it couldn't have been a more perfect nest for us. Warm, gentle, peaceful, lovely welcome and super smiling staff. This suite is perfect if you have an elderly mother with you (especially one who's in denial about her age) as it is accessible and easy, without...

If you're a foodie, you must eat at this hotel. The chef, Brandon Shepherd, creates spectacular plates of art! It's incredibly presented and tastes extrordinary. The price for the menu at moment is a ridiculous £39.50 for a 7 course meal; canapés, pre starter, starter, main, dessert, chocolates and cheese and biscuits. I would happily pay a lot more for...

We are locals and have been many times so wanted to see what the new owners and chef were like. Peter, the barman, is still there and is his own wonderful self. The place wouldn't be the same without him. Thanks Peter. The meal was excellent, better than before, well presented and it's hard to see how it could be...
