Ambiance was peaceful and stress free. Staff were attentive and extremely polite. Food was exquisite. Views of the garden and lake were lovely. Parking is free. Location is about 1 mile from Bowness Centre. Access to leisure facilities. Room was impeccable with fresh biscuits both days left in the room for you.
If I had to be picky, its just the lesiure facilities are at a different hotel. But wouldnt say its a total dislike.
good food, everything good value
no wifi in rooms maybe a bit short on staff
A truly tranquil hotel with attentive staff and excellent food. Hotel set in a fabulous location with lovely gardens.
Everything was perfect, no negative comments.
country manor personalised service quiet and classy staff bent backwards to deal with requirements
Reception staff, manager, rooms, breakfast quality, coffee in room and biscuits.
Restaurant staff were slow and rude. Breakfast took over half an hour to arrive. Shower was poor.
Very pleasant atmosphere. Lovely views from the lounge. Food choice Goodall
Long wait for breakfast on our first morning
The friendly staff and the beautiful grounds of the hotel.
Our bedroom was in a separate outbuilding.
Early breakfast, not enough waiting staff
Easy access to many beautiful locations. The scenary is worth the experience in all weather, and the changing light, gives many different aspects to the same position. All-round views are a constant reminder of the wonderful countryside.
The hotel is a lovely old building but kept in an old/ modern style, with a beautiful garden and grounds with great views. Food was good, hospitality etc, tip top.
took too long to get there sometimes
Although We did not know it was a set menu, the staff were very accommodating. The food was of the highest standard ,and very tasty!!
The service was quite slow
The well kept gardens and stunning views from the terrace. Plenty of tables and chairs to choose from outside.
The room was small and dull. The service for evening dinner was exceptionally slow. Room was not serviced on 1 occasion.
The venue its self is in a gorgeous position with well attended gardens and we enjoyed a very relaxing break. The staff couldnt do more which added to the sense of relaxation.
We had a very small room with no aircon or room fan. The room was at the front of the hotel and as the weather was so good our window needed to be left open for essential ventilation which meant we heard lots of vehicles parking and doors slamming. There was also a constant humming from what sounded like an extraction fan which did not switch off until 10pm.
no fresh bread at breakfast or proper continental choice ie cold meats, cheese etc
Beautiful location with stunning views, comfortable room.
Ordered a newspaper for the morning which wasn't available with breakfast, wifi could be updated to include coverage in rooms.
location and room were fine, nice views, quiet
some staff were grumpy. Too many 'rules' cream tea had to be 1-4 - you could not just have prosecco later. You had to have the voucher (which we were not given). Dinner was nice but painfully slow. Seemed more like an old folks rest home
The staff were extremely helpful and very pleasant and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable . The food was the usual high quality.
A small niggle...the shower wasn't very effective.
The hotel is situated in its own grounds very nice garden s .food best we have had in a long time .
The food was excellent and the staff first class. Relaxing in a beautiful setting. There are a couple of negative comments but this would not stop us staying here again. If there had been no hot water, the food and staff would have made up for that.
The bathroom was small and there was not a position that you could sit and dry your hair in front of a mirror. No draught beer only lager or over priced bottled beer.
Stayed here several times before, always enjoy it, nice and quiet, and they very attentive etc. Would always recommend.
food bed friendly lovely grounds
no chairs in room. 2 provided on request
A well spread out, traditional British property refurbished to provide old world British charm, mesmerizing views and ambience, fulsome breakfast with wonderful variety
No wifi access on the top room. Just a little away from town center. No lifts in the property.
We liked the affiliation to the old England hotel.
Sent into an attic room for £179 which had a dirty bedcover,dated ensuite and a shower that did not work. The room had been left with the radiator on full. Very hot. Finally the breakfast was disappointing. The continental, cereal etc very good however, the English breakfast consisted of a mushroom uncooked, bacon slightly cooked, poached egg completely boiled. We stay in the lakes virtually every month and was extremely disappointed.
