We stayed at the Skiddaw hotel for a Saturday night on a dinner, bed and breakfast deal. The room we were given was one of the original rooms - room 7 (some have been updated) but despite this it was a great big room with views over the main street. The staff were very helpful and gave us some ideas for walks in the area. The location of the hotel is excellent and the car park is also a big benefit.
Dinner was very nice and when although there were no vegetarian meals on the menu I was given a choice of 4 vegetarian options off a different menu. The service in the restaurant is excellent and staff are very attentive. Breakfast was also good quality however there was no vegetarian cooked breakfast and I was given the normal cooked breakfast minus the bacon and sausage which meant it was a smaller portion.
The problem we had on our stay was the noise at night. Due to the great location there was the downside of drunken people shouting and screaming in the main street until 3am which meant we finished our stay more tired than when we arrived!! When we informed staff we were not very happy about the noise they were not shocked, I am assuming this is because its a common complaint. I would love to go back to the Skiddaw hotel but I will make sure I request a room at the back of the hotel to minimise the noise.
