    Overall an excellent hotel for a weekend break just outside Windermere. Excellent room and view over the snowy mountains and lake. Our only problem was the wait for breakfast on the Saturday morning - everyone arrived at the same time!

    The Hotel was excellent, staff were really friendly and welcoming. We had a wonderful time during or stay here. Can't thank them enough for the free upgrade when I informed them it was our anniversary.

    My mum and I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, all of the rooms we visited were lovely, very warm, the breakfast was nice and this place has a lot of history and we would have like to learn more about it, such as having a leaflet handy on arrival giving. Overall we would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family. The staff were very accommodating and it was just a nice break. There are no fridges in the rooms which would have been handy to have to chill out water but I cannot complain the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom we had had some great lighting.

    Great location, great view
    Lovely stay, comfy room and perfectly located only a short walk away from Bowness-on-Windermere and Windermere. Our dog enjoyed his stay too :-)

    Fantastic place lovely clean, nice excellent food both for evening meal and breakfast, would definitely stay here again
    Keith, gb1 night trip
    Very good 8.0
    Just a few low points.
    Not as near the town as we thought and quite a steep hill up to the Hotel with no lights in the evening. Loungers in the pool area would be a great addition, for a snooze after the sauna and pool!! Nice breakfast but could have been hotter. Staff very helpful and friendly and hotel immaculate overall a lovely stay and would recommend.

    It was a very nice hotel for the more mature person. The staff were excellent. Our room was smaller than cosy but we still had a nice stay.
