Score from 205 reviews Superb
Staff were all excellent and friendly. Location was perfect, just a few minutes away from the lake. Bar had proper ale and reasonable prices.
i thought the staff went out of their way to be nice. i left my laptop in the room and they arranged to have it sent to me after contacting me about it. i could not have asked for more. the new mattress on the bed was so comfortable i over slept.
nothing to say.
the hotel at Christmas time the Christmas tree at the fire the breakfast the leisure centre the staff
Rooms very clean and comfortable, all staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Restaurant was good and the food at dinner was at the top end.
Bar prices were expensive, breakfast finished at 9:30 I would have preferred 10am.
Excellent position a couple of minutes walk from the lake. Big room with comfortable bed. Excellent food at Breakfast and Dinner.
Service, rooms, food
Facilities good, location great.
Heating boiler very noisy, possibly being overhauled with refurbishments underway. Price should have reflected this.
Superb hotel with best of old world service values Staff very helpful at all times and food excellent
Wasnt aware on booking that hotel undergoing major refurbishment meaning that during our stay facilities at the Spa (which my wife was especially looking forward to ) were unavailable
The location great breakfast good hotel all in all
Noise at night during both nights stay No porridge Doing renovation works inside and especially outside the hotel and wasn't told about it on booking
There's a lot of renovations going on at the moment & signage to the bedrooms is very limited & confusing.
Very clean in all areas that I saw. Really warm and cosy. Real fire in lounge area. Excellent seating and furnishings that were very well looked after. Good to be phoned and advised of car park resurfacing. Even the contractors were friendly, apologetic and took time to find somewhere for us to park whilst they worked on it. Nice breakfast.
Just a couple of loose fitting in the bathroom that needed attention but otherwise little to worry about.
Hotel facilities downstairs good .Breakfasts good .
Car park used as a builders yard.Not being told of renovation works .Room not being cleaned. Heating not working .Door lock not working .No reduction to compensate.
Location excellent, was easy to walk into bowness. Room well laid out and comfortable. The hotel is undergoing quite a bit of work. Guests were asked for improvement recommendations.
Minor comments on decor in bathroom likely to be addressed with the redecoration already underway.
This was a lovely break for my birthday, the food was excellent, (compliments to the chef for the wonderful food).
Staff very helpfull. Food excellent in the hotel. Clean and comfortable room.
bit noisy,perhaps should not have booked half term week.
The locality of the hotel was really good. Just a 5 minute walk from the village. The room had a good view were you could see onto the lake. Breakfast staff were friendly and helpful.
We arrived into a construction site with a jcb digger blocking the main entrance. We were not informed of the renovation taking place and when we checked in there were no apologies. We stayed in room 132, which turned out to be the closest room to all the construction work, which could be heard during the day. The room was generally clean, however there were coffee splash marks on the wall. Also there was mould and cobwebs above the shower.
Breakfast and hotel ambience.
Bathroom very small. Staff looked miserable but where efficient. No ramp at entrance for disabled or wheeling luggage.
Room was ok. Breakfast ok. Proximity everything fab.
.leisure side pathetic..pool ok but gym was a joke..how they dare say they got a gym was a total stretch of the imagination. It should be stated that it is well below standards expected. And as it was an aspect of the weekend we really looked gorward too it was a big disappointment. But being asked for payment upfront ridiculous..and definitely took the biscuit. We have stayed in many hotels and this is the first time we were ever asked for payment on arrival.
The on-site leisure facilities. Good breakfast menu
I e-mailed the hotel to let them know that we had spent our Honeymoon at the Burnside and were returning on our 50th anniversary, this was ignored and all we got was marketing e-mails. Not the way to treat customers.
Peculiar smell in the hotel and in particular the room we stayed in. Glad it's having a refurbishment
Sitting by the roaring fireplace in the sitting room was lovely. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The family room 228 great size room comfy overlooked leisure, not too bad. missed dinner, so appreciated table to sit at in room. gardens very nice to walk round. quite central location
looking forward to pool/Jacuzzi but pool looked far too small and Jacuzzi not working on day we wanted to use it. Pool would be overcrowded as not just residents using - we decided not to bother. Was looking forward to relaxing in lounge area instead, but 4 dogs in at once having been outside walking and instantly room smelt really bad of dog odour. Do they have to be allowed in main lounge areas?
The Hotel was overall a excellent place to stay close to all amenities
We love staying at burnside , the staff are just fantastic , johnathan and Paula and all the waiting on staff are so good at their jobs , it really feels like they love working at burnside. The food is so lovely , top quality breakfast , and as an ex airhostess I've breakfasted from Hong Kong to Dubai , and this truly is very well thought through and cooked. The rooms and hotel are so clean , it's a credit to the cleaners ,the room was made up between nights like a new room. The pool is super warm and clean and the kids love it , I like the relaxed atmosphere and the fact it's not like a stuck up spa, keep it like that , it's a rare thing.they provide towels a hair dryer and bags for wet clothes, it's very well thought through again ! Great job! The style and decor of the hotel is good quality and feels grand for the money . The location is great , near shops and piers, we had a view of the hills which made getting up a joy . I can honestly say , this hotel and staff have got it right , and it looks like some improvements are happening so it will be even better. Super job! Can't wait for next trip.
Only one tiny tiny thing , the mushrooms would be lovely sliced and fried in butter with salt and pepper , but that's my taste . Nothing else at all .
The location, staff were friendly, the bar was very nice, and late night entertainment.
The room had damp on one wall going up to the ceiling, which was covered in mould it was horrible. The mirror hadn't been cleaned in the bathroom as it had drawings on from previous visitors which makes you wonder what else may not have been cleaned. The cost of the room did not reflect on the type of hotel, I've paid less in a same star hotel that was much better well presented and included breakfast. If you are planning to have breakfast go into the village where you will find it half the price. £24 for breakfast for two people is ridiculous, it is all you can eat style, but this is not for everyone; there should be other options.
