Room was really comfortable, well decorated and very clean, the view was great. Danny was very helpful both before and during our stay, he was very accommodating. The staff we spoke with were also very friendly and couldn't do enough. We felt very welcome, made to feel at home and would stay again!

This hotel was in a great location. Very friendly staff and the breakfast was outstanding. Also had the use of the spa facilities at a nearby hotel. Would recommend this hotel for a weekend break in the Lakes.

Thank you for your feedback. Your comments about the bathroom are fair and you will be pleased to learn that we are refurbishing it in the spring of 2017 along with a further two bathrooms. With regard to plug sockets there is a further double socket below the bedside shelf. We hope you will visit us again.
