Food was good. Friendly staff.Niceand warm . Bed linen and bed very comfortable.
Wasn't that we didn't like it. But carpets were threadbare in the bedroom. And furnishings looking a bit tired. Otherwise very comfortable
Value for money ,friendly staff. Good location.
The Inn needs a makeover.we were told it was closing until January to do some alterations! Carpets were threadbare. Food was just OK.
The position of the inn and friendliness of staff.
The thread bare carpet in the room very badly worn.
The hotel is well positioned to get around the lakes . It has a typical old English feel. Breakfast was very good, freshly cooked local produce. Staff very friendly and helpful good local knowledge. Will defiantly recommend.
Nothing to dislike
Staff were very friendly, and the location is good. It was a fair price for what we needed and the staff very accommodating. Clean bedding. Shower was good and free toiletries.
Does need a bit of a make over, the ensuite has obviously suffered from a bit of damp
Great service, tasty food
Cold shower, some mould in bathroom
Friendly staff, good pub food.
Having to wait to check in at the bar while busy barman attends to customers' food & drinks order. There was an incredibly steep narrow stair to our bedroom.Light above basin wasn't working & mirror was far too low.Lack of accessible power point for hair drier near either mirror.
Food was excellent.
The location was excellent.
Room was extremely shabby. No bed made up for our second day or replenishment of tea and coffee supplies. Carpets very worn. Shower room very old and water pressure very poor. In need of total refurbishment. Linen was clean we hope but hard to tell as it was all so old. Had one meal there which was very poor as well.
Relaxing and welcoming with good food.
Clean room, Big TV, tea and coffee facilities above average, good views, friendly staff
Steep stairs, bathroom needs a makeover. Food a bit overpriced
comfortable bed and cosy room thick fluffy towels
Doggie friendly. Good location. Good Pub grub!
Excellent value for money Excellent breakfast good location friendly staff
single room very small booked double room for 2nd night stay but staff booked it to someone else bar meals expensive
Loved the setting and the look of the place as I approached. This feeling didn't last although with a bit of a refurb this could be a really great guest house.
Place is extremely tired especially the carpets and the rooms. My room has around 50 flies in it when I first arrived and my shower had a huge clump of long black hair stuck to the wall. An unlocked attic hatch didn't help either.
Parking, wifi, the staff and the food
- Views from the room - Location - Pleasant bar staff - Good breakfast
- Décor very tired, carpets threadbare - We were aware that pets were welcome in the hotel and bedrooms but didn't expect dogs to be allowed in the dining areas when were having our breakfast and evening meals
Nice and relaxed Good choice of drinks Menu was of good choice
Breakfast wasn't the best. Not a full English and possible microwaving??? Rooms were just ok and ok just for one night. Not staying in luxury just a simple lakes inn!
no room service, poor menu,and over priced
friendly and helpful staff. good location .Good food.
Location Atmosphere Staff Food
Rooms in need of TLC - maybe address one room at a time and then this place is a must
The staff are really friendly and helpful. Beautiful views of the countryside.
Our room (4) was really tired and crying out for a refurb. The shower did not drain well and there was mould growing on the sloping ceiling above the toilet, as well as duct tape covering a hole. The toilet seat was too small for the toilet. Our teapot had not been cleaned out from the previous occupants, however when we mentioned this the staff were apologetic and immediately helped. I would not stay here again.
The Staff The Breakfast
Tired rooms and stairway in need of re-decoration Carpet on stairs threadbare and dangerous if heal got caught. Carpet in room also threadbare Light over mirror over basin did not work TV did not work Stain on mattress cover Stain on ceiling Un finished ceiling above shower, bare plaster board
good location as stop over on way from Scotland. v Very good food
bit dated but having complete make-over soon
