Only problem was that room was not soundproof- as the next door snoring was very disturbing on one night.

Decent hotel. Can stay again but different rooms p
Hotel location is very good. But our rooms needed stairs a lot, in spite of lift. Breakfast was all right. Parking convenient. Staff was friendly. But being an old structure, a little more to be desired.

Very pleasant hotel
Well run friendly hotel, this is our second visit and we will go back. Only problem was one or two flies in restaurant/conservatory areas. Maybe an insect “zapper” would help. The fly problem is not exclusive to the Skiddaw, we noticed it in other shops and areas.

A must when travelling with a dog
We travelled with our dog I was a little apprensive but I was very pleasantly surprised.The room was a little on the small side but immaculately clean . The dog was allowed in the conservatory to have breakfast and any other meals which to be honest I preferred to the restaurant .The hotel is in an excellent location and you could just sit and watch the world go by. All the staff were brilliant to us and the hound .I think this experience may have spoilt us as it would be very hard to better the experience. FANTASTIC
