Food - first class chef
Bad a bit too soft and room quite small but neither spoilt our stay
Having paid £35 for a room with breakfast last minute my expectations weren't high so I was thoroughly delighted to find a clean comfortable room and bed with staff who couldn't do enough for me A real gem wouldn't hesitate recommending it
The staff rapidly worked out my preferences in terms of such things as number of pillows, thermostat, etc and, instead of mindlessy setting everything back to the standard setting each day as for a new guest, respected my preferences for the duration of my stay. Very rare!
There was nothing not to like.
Friendly and informal. Breakfast excellent.
We could not get an evening meal on the day we arrived whch was a Saturday.
Booked with only a week before my trip I didn't know what to expect, but I wasn't disappointed. Lovely bedroom & en-suite. Plenty of parking.
Staff very pleasant went out of their way to be helpful Location perfect so peaceful lovely view Double Room spacious and clean
Double room- single beds small perhaps should have asked for double bed
Location superb, plenty of car parking, very warm welcome, excellent sized room and particularly the bed. Breakfast very good with a wide choice of items. Manager very friendly and service provided by (foreign) staff superb. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they always smiled!
Shower didn't work, a couple of members of staff clearly don't like meeting customers - they need to take a lead from the foreign girls.
Very nice place, lovely area, nice well kept gardens, a very well set up hotel. Would recommend this hotel to any a of my friends!
Quiet location, good linens and towels and cleanlinless
Having to ask for some breakfast as breakfast did not start until 8.30 and we had to leave at 8am.The staff on duty the night before tried their best and left us cereal, bread, cheese and ham which was left stood on ice in a food warmer, the hot water in the flask was cold so we could not even have a hot cup of coffee .I really feel that the standard of this hotel and the group they belong to in the lakes along with the price we paid we should of been able to have a hot breakfast or at least hot fresh coffee and toast so because of this I would not stay again. Thankyou to the staff who tried to help us.
Stayed for one night, was blown away by the friendliness and willingness of the staff to assist in every aspect of my stay. It felt more like a 4 star with 5 Star service.
Breakfast was very good, Tranquil place, wildlife & lovely gardens. Good location to walk to see views of Windermere.
Room was a bit cold.
Friendly staff, clean modern rooms & excellent location
Professional staff. Comfortable bed. Spacious bedroom & bathroom Lovely outlook. High quality food.
Shower control difficult to operate.
bedroom comfort first class
as above think its in need of a makeover carpets are so badly worne i believe they are in places even dangerous had i not been on a wedding weekend i whould have made a fuss sorry if you dont like my coments but i feel i need to be honest when you pay good money you expect the best
location was nice. the room was comfortable with private door leading on to nice gardens.
one hour dedicated for breakfast 08:30 to 09:30. The hotel decor and furniture was like an old peoples residential home(very dated) and the carpets were worn so badly the stairs were covered in silver duct tape
Hotel nicely situated for Ambleside and Bowness.The staff were out to please,there was plenty of lounge sitting areas,the beds were very comfortable.The whole place was clean.The food was good.The visit experience was more than satisfactory!
Staff, room, location.
Stayed at Briery Wood recently the night before my daughter's wedding so large party of family and the bride staying. Staff couldn't do enough, so helpful and polite. Bacon butties brought up for the bride and bridesmaids on the morning of the wedding. Lovely evening meal on the Friday, very child friendly. Couldn't praise enough the reception we had here and would like to come back in the future. Thank you to everyone who assisted us getting out on time on the Saturday morning!
If I had to pick something I thought the evening set meal was a little on the pricey side but nothing else
Friendly staff, good facilities.
Only stayed one night but the room was very comfortable and the staff were friendly and attentive. Breakfast was good.
Communal areas a little bit dated, but it is a country house hotel. There was an extractor fan outside rooms 9 & 10 which was audible during the day, but was (thankfully) off at night.
Location & bed large and very comfortable. Pleasant view if Windermere from our room.
Disappointing breakfast. Quality of sausage not up to standard. Scrambled eggs were too runny/soup like.
The staff went an extra mile to help us with our booking and accommodation for our 6yo son. Thank you a lot. We had a great time!
Staff very helpful and friendly , superb breakfast
The cleanliness and nice bathroom facilities also the staff very helpful.
The digital lock on the the rear door needs illuminating could not make out the numbers in order to get in
The location was idyllic, peaceful and tranquil just perfect for a relaxing break
