Here for 3 days wanted R n R and sea air. This hotel would definitely be hard to beat. Scrupulously clean everywhere. Nothing too much trouble and a breakfast as good as any top notch hotel. Large comfortable room with sea views. Biscuits renewed each day. A shower that really works....what more can be said...brilliant (and value for money)

Dear BillGa Thank you for your comprehensive and considered review. We are pleased that we were able to complement your holiday in the 'Lake District'. We were perplexed and upset by the terrible review but it is overshadowed by your appraisal and all the other positive reviews we have received. See you in the new year. Trina and Paul More
