Very good 8.0
As good as ever
The Daffodil has never let us down. The food was first class, the room was the best we've ever had there, with windows on two sides overlooking the lake. The staff are efficient, friendly and helpful.

Great location and very good accomodation. Spa was quite small in relation to the size of the hotel but we only used a couple of times and spent the days out in the lovely lake district.
