Lovely stay and very welcoming in beautiful locati
Lovely hotel, small and very friendly staff who were very welcoming. Spa was small but clean. Only issue being that there was no way of stopping the water from splashing the floor in the body jet shower. A minor point. Room was lovely with a balcony and a view of the river. If you have difficulty sleeping then the sound of the water flowing by may help. We had a very sound sleep! As a big breakfast fan, portion size wasn’t to my liking and when I asked for fruit and yoghurt, only the fruit bowl came. Cumbrian breakfast was one of everything although the quality was very high and the poached eggs were done to perfection. The staff booking us in and checking us out were very friendly and made us feel thoroughly welcomed. We will be going back and probably very soon!
