We stayed here with our twin 6 month old babies, travelling with twins is never easy but this hotel went out of their way to help. I booked directly with the hotel and had a room that overlooked the lake and had a lounge area...More

Stayed 1 night over a weekend, Great location and beautiful views over the lake however the service was shocking. Unacceptable waiting time in the bar and restaurant area also called down to reception for more toiletries which never arrived. Nice pool and spa area.

Take the turning from bowness towards Ambleside and there is a car park opposite the Beartrix potter museum for £15 for 3 days. It’s only a 10 Minuets walk from the hotel. Much better value than the rip off they charge.

There is a car park up the hill, approximately 5 mins walk from the hotel. It was full when we were there recently but I think you can reserve places on line, I believe it is about £15:00 for 3 days.
