Interesting menu with well cooked food Friendly helpful staff
The staff are a credit to the hotel, lovely people and very friendly making you feel at ease.
The relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant
Room was clean and comfortable, staff friendly and helpful, games for kids very useful. Gardens and lake walks beautiful.
Mobile signal non existant. Wifi very poor. For a hotel of this calibre you should have an in house strong wifi signal and not use the "cloud" which is complicated to access, weak, and does not allow streaming. A mini bar in room would be usefull.
Very comfortable bed and lovely surroundings. Morning receptionist very helpful.
We discovered bar meals weren't being served after 6.30 pm although the receptionist had said 10.00 pm. Staff said we could order from the bar menu but we had to eat in the library. The tables in the library were very low and this caused some discomfort - not too good for the digestion system either!
Very good location. Nice room with lovely view between trees across lake.
Room Service not always good. E.g. ordered cafetiere for 2 but only received for 1. When requested more, additional cafetiere came but no second cup and saucer! Also forgot to bring jug of milk. All told it took 3 trips to resolve the issue! Ordered newspaper for both mornings but wasn't delivered first morning. Ordered coffee in lounge but delivered without milk so then had to wait for someone to come by to ask for milk. These were small problems but not good enough when paying quite a lot of money for the 2 nights we were there.
Lovely building and fabulous views from the breakfast room. Good big pillows, comfy bed and large fluffy towels.
Shower leaked in puddles all over the floor and water pressure was low. Toilet dripped most of the time. Hard to get through on the phone to the room service as no-one was answering.
From the moment we arrived to the time we left the hotel staff were most courteous, and the feature room was to die for.
Location and food and a sherry on arrival.
Friendliness of welcome. Very nice staff, super food. Very well appointed room. Very nice breakfast.
Clean and immaculate decor
Shower feeble. Bar meals over-priced
Lovely Hotel with nice views comfortable room and nice food
Lovely big comfy bed Delicious food
Breakfast food supplement for smoked haddock. Dinner supplement for cheese. Dinner at £40 was over priced, wine at £25 was very over priced
The whole ambience of the hotel,peaceful surroundings,courteous and efficient staff.Comfort of our room was excellent.Definitely return and recommend to friends.
WFI was not free as we were led to believe from Booking.com but it was not a big issue with us.
The views surrounding the hotel
To wake up to the sound of a dog barking for half an hour Sunday morning. Being told I couldn't sit by the window because the waitress didn't have time to clear the tables!!
Loved the surroundings and the Views of the lake,
Our bedroom looked over the car Park so had to keep curtains closed for privacy
All staff very obliging in particular head waiter Food was very good.
Bathroom was very small and wi-fi was erratic
Quiet location pleasantly situated next to Ullswater lake.
One of the main reasons for chosing this hotel over a slightly cheaper hotel without WiFi was the free WiFi offered. Very unhappy - only BT openzone customers get free internet. Cost to conect for everyone else is £25/5 days or £10/day. False advertising and complaining to Macdonald group. Also no 3 phone coverage in this area exacerbated this problem.
We loved the setting. The staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. Room was comfortable and clean. Food was worth the wait.
We were very inconvenienced by the lack of WiFi We chose this hotel as it advertised free WiFi in all areas and in fact the WiFi was only available for existing BT customers. My husband had some business to attend to during our stay which was impossible. Our booking conditions stated clearly that free WiFi was available in all areas of the hotel!!
The hotel is lovely with splendid views. The rooms are very lovely. Staff helpful when there was a problem
-Guests should not have to pay for Wi-Fi; -The food was not good. I sent back my dinner in the evening and then again the night before = not hot. Warm is not acceptable. -Dining room was lacking in ambience. I practically sat on the next table because of the lack of space between; - hotels down the road offered free Wi-Fi, hot food and spa facilities;
The restaurant was excellent. Delicious dinner.
There was no hotel Wi Fi. Only BT Openzone for those with BT accounts.
landscape is very beautiful where you can just walk to the lake beach
post code may leads to a wrong place about 200 yards away
Super location - excellent staff - good food - understated.
