Ideal setting for visitors to Ullswater, Glenridding and Helvellyn. Only about 10 minutes from M6/A66. It is at eastern end of the Lake which is only five minutes walk from the hotel. the steamers are a bout 8 minutes walk.
Hotel is well appointed with small but well presented rooms. Very comfortable bed, lovely bathroom with super accessories. Great TV and wi-fi.
Service is very pleasant and helpful. Small bar area is very homely. We ate here for an evening meal. whilst pricy and a bit 'nouvelle cuisine' it was superb food with a very knowledgeable chef. Can certainly recommend the home made butter with warm bread before the meal and the home made ice cream for dessert. The halibut and guinea fowl we had for mains was lovely. Breakfast had good choice and really well served. only minor complaint here is that the tables are very close together for this time of day!!
Small but good choices of well kept local beer complemented everything the hotel. presented.
