The best service from staff I have ever received in a hotel. Complimentary hot drinks and snacks upon arrival and free bar snacks in the afternoon.

Lake District Retreat

The staff at this hotel were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were large by English/European standards, the views were beautiful, and the hotel was very quiet. We ate both breakfast and dinner at the hotel and both were fantastic. The dinner was delicious; however, the portions made a dinner in a French restaurant look like an all you can eat buffet. The dining room was also a tad quiet. The main road to the bridge is narrow and then a one lane road from the bridge to get to the hotel. Not uncommon in the countryside; however, these roads were narrower than what you will find around the Southern Lake District towns. Overall, it was a great hotel and a relaxing experience. We would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel to others!
