8/10 Very good

The hotel was in a lovely location and the room had a great view. Everything was really charming. The only issue we had was poor service at breakfast and felt for the price you were paying the breakfast was mean. The staff were lovely though and sorted it out

Overall disappointing & I wouldn’t rush back
Starting with the positives, the hotel itself is amazing and is very impressive to look around and drive up to. The views on a clear day would have be incredible (it was very cloudy during our stay) and it’s in a perfect location for anyone that wants to do walks out of Ambleside. Unfortunately however there were several disappointing things about our stay. 1. The food was the biggest let down. Given it’s known for its food reputation we had some of the most overpriced and undercooked food I’ve ever eaten. The staff seemed unfamiliar with everything and as a result got orders wrong or forgot things. One evening a couple hadn’t even had their starters by the time we were being offered coffee. It was the same at breakfast and overall I got the impression that the kitchen and waiting staff were not in their usual comfort zones. 2. Whilst the rooms were very beautiful with old features there were again disappointing aspects. The floor had bits of old crisps where it hadn’t been cleaned properly from the previous guests. They had forgot to top up the tea and coffee supplies and the bed was just 2 singles pushed together. Overall it was a nice stay but not the trip we had built our hopes up for. Given the cost of the hotel and the food we eat both resulted in being very overpriced and I certainly wouldn’t rush back given all the other amazing places you can stay in the lakes.

Staff were excellent very friendly & helpful no fault there. Unfortunately the room was disappointing, needs updating & refreshed there were obvious signs of repair needed. Facilities were not up to 4* standard, tv was tiny, milk in room was out of date, had to boil kettle on the floor & we had no hot water for a shower in the morning. Food was restricted given the pandemic but the menu choices were poor & very overpriced, £16 for caesar salad £5.75 for a small bottle of beer! Last but not least the breakfast, again due to the pandemic this was a ‘light’ continental breakfast brought to your room. I left hungry, small bag of cereal, tiny pastry, some fruit & a yoghurt pot which had separated & was inedible. The room rate was £183 including breakfast, extremely expensive for what we got & sad to say I will not return & wouldn’t recommend the hotel.

2/10 Poor

Ruined our weekend
The room was suppose to be the best in the hotel but it was freezing and very rundown. There was now hot water for a bath or shower.if you wanted a tea or coffee you couldn’t plug the kettle in unless you put the kettle on the floor as the flex wasn’t long enough, the curtains were falling off the curtain rails and you couldn’t close the bathroom window The next day the water was still not warm enough to shower. On asking to see the manager I was told he was to busy. Rubbish reaction to all problems very poor and at close on £350 per night I certainly won’t be going back.

This is a beautiful hotel in a location with fabulous views, the staff were excellent, helpful and friendly, the room was superb. The food in the restaurant was good but not exceptional for the relatively high price and with a rather limited choice.
