Great little find
Great stay and service under the new owners, food/menu was beautiful and rooms were lovely. We were able to bring our dog which is amazing - they have a wide selection of dog food and treats too in reception. Hotel is located a short walk from the Windermere ferry and surrounded by lovely walks. Would recommend.

We had a wonderful stay with a very friendly and helpful staff making things very relaxed. It is a great place to stay with your dogs who also felt welcome and cosy. The rooms are very comfortable and we had a great sleep. The setting is stunning with wonderful views from the room and it is very easy to enjoy walking in the area. The food was lovely with a delicious menu. Overall we had an amazing time. Thank you.

Some great staff & some terrible staff
We stayed for two night. I was told breakfast was included & then told it wasn't on check out & I had to pay £90! First day breakfast was good but next day it was terrible. Also I paid advance for my stay & asked to pay again on check!! I showed my payment on PayPal & it was resolved by contacting about my payment. This second time we stayed at this place & probably the last time because of this experience!!
