This is my 2 nd visit to this property within 10 months. I was so impressed in 2018, that I came back with my sister on a motoring holiday.. There is so much to like about this hotel.......from the moment you arrive.....the warmth and welcome from reception staff ( Isla this time), the comfort of the rooms, the views of the lake from reception, bar area and restaurant, the friendliness of staff ( including those cleaning our rooms).......the quality of food served, etc etc. It was a bit later in the season this year, (so a little more rainy in the Lakes area) , but also lovely to see the Autumn gold, copper and red leaves on many of the trees. Location to other lakeside villages was great......meant that we saw a lot in our 5 days there.
I can’t really think of anything I didn’t like
Fantastic views. Lovely touch to have dog bed, bowls and treats in the room.
The staff could not do enough for us. Truly excellent.
Super room and lovely welcome pack for our child. Fabulous comfortable bed. Great reception.
Our waitress was lovely but manager and other staff in the restaurant seemed stressed and ignored us at first, and we were left waiting to be seated for a while. An otherwise fantastic hotel let down a little by this.
Stunning hotel and bedrooms. All areas clean and decorated lovely. The food was outstanding and dogs are made to feel really welcome.
