A group of friends returned here for New Years celebrations, after a fantastic stay last year, and we were not disappointed. The management and staff could not have done more to make our New Year more special. This is a fantastic venue if you like to be in the Lake District but enjoy a party atmosphere. Every member of staff...

We visited this hotel recently and were pleasantly surprised on the stay we had. We opted for a Lakeland View double room and were allocated Room 208. On inspection this room was quite small and in our opinion, claustrophobic, but after complaining to Reception we didn't like it, we were given Room 225, which was a much more spacious room....

Fabulous location with great views. Lots of walks locally.States it is a 2* hotel, but has 5* service and food. Very reasonable prices considering this includes an all you can eat buffet breakfast and 3 course evening meal (4 choices including vegetarian). Wifi used to be hopeless, but now fibre optic and works a treat. Can't overstate how wonderful the...

As good as moderately priced hotels get. Nothing to fault and location among the best in UK at any price. Staff superb, food good and organisation exemplary. The best value hotel in the Lake District, and I've been to a few.

Stayed here for one night and found it great value for dinner, bed and breakfast for two. The dinner was good quality and worked out as only £5 each over the price for bed and breakfast. The room was comfortable, and although the room didn't have views of the front of the hotel, you still had a view of the...
