Very large comfortable room. Very welcoming staff. Open fires, very cosy.
Excellent room at a reasonable price. Good location sufficiently away from towns but close enough to easily walk in. Near top local attractions. Very friendly staff who were most accommodating and an excellent breakfast included in the price of the room. 10/10
Lovely spacious room
The whole experience
Staff were really friendly and the breakfast was lush. A great place to stay in a beautiful setting.
We were a little disappointed with the bed as we expecting a double and had to singles pushed together instead which was a little uncomfortable also the mattresses were a little lumpy.
Dog friendly .Family room very good size.and comfy beds.
Room too hot!
The house is quite beautiful and warm and tidy. I love the BadgerBar downstairs expecially the fireplace in it!
wifi is not good as we could not connect for most time on iphone, but it's ok on ipad and mac.don't know why.
The staff were friendly and courteous
The hotel needs a over hall - Although the room was quite nice the public areas were scruffy and needed attention.
We felt very welcomed and looked after by the staff, whose professionalism and hospitality cannot be beaten.
What an excellent break we had here last week. As usual the staff were wonderful and the food great. The newly refurbished rooms are well decorated, warm and cosy. Thank you again Glen Rothay and Badger bar staff, we had a very special time and will be back.
Nothing at all.
Loved our family room, comfortable and great with baby. Even offered champagne with breakfast!
Real ales, dog friendly, great food, lovely medieval style old dining room, able to walk straight from the hotel, free parking, comfortable and spacious room and bathroom with view of Rydal water, great location, good breakfast.
Overall ambiance. Very helpful staff.
Not really a complaint but bathroom needed a bit of bleach on the tiles/bath trim.
Paul the owner was very kind and made us feel at home. Gave us the option of room for the second night and upgraded us without us even asking on the first night. The room was great with a 4 poster bed. It was recently refurbished. The double bath was also interesting. The food was good and reasonably priced. The location was bang in the middle of the Lake District The best walk we went on was just across the road. Great for the dogs. Can't wait to go back someday. Thanks again Paul.
Great food and atmosphere
Bed was not very comfortable
I found the staff extremely helpful and the whole atmosphere was great
Fantastic, very friendly staff, amazing food. Ate dinner at the pub. In the process of repainting and re-carpeting all the rooms. Would recommend this place to anyone.
The bath. If I'd known there was no shower I would have asked for a different room.
Very relaxed, welcoming hotel. Lovely staff.
Good menu, but half of it had run out! At least we know it's fresh!
