My wife and I enjoyed the location and the lovely swimming pool.The dinner and breakfast were very good.Polite attentive staff.
Very relaxed environment . Leisure facilities are good . Staff friendly
Accommodated us to check-in early so we could prepare to attend a family wedding. Good location for same purpose.
Having to pay extra for breakfast (quite expensive) - so we found an alternative locally.
Doors slamming constantly
Comfie beds. Great sitting areas with log fires. Wonderful food and service. Pristine leisure facilities.
Standard of food very poor and very bland really disappointing
we had our young grandson with us we all had a lovely time will stay at the hotel again we could not get our grandson out of the pool.
we thought the bar prices for food was a bit expensive although the food was nice.
You should have an egg cooking bar and not some old fried eggs brought our from the kitchen The rooms were too ho to sleep even with the window open
Staff were excellent - very friendly and effeicent. Pool and spa very nice and location good.
Wifi wasn't consistent and sometimes slow. The outside decor does not do the hotel justice - looked more like a butlins than the luxury hotel it is.
The place was very welcoming, very clean, great staff.
The rooms were too close together, cleaners would come far to early, rooms lact the value of the price paid, wifi did not work, taps would make disturbing noises when they were turned on, rooms were very small, the TV was not very good quality, dinner and breakfast is very expensive.
Loved having a Lift! Didn't use spa/pool but would have liked to-others were enjoying it. Quiet street so excellent sleep
Reception was disorganised but ok
Leisure pool and facilities. Bunk bed in room for kids. Easy to find. Lots of car parking.
Nothing within walking distance of the hotel.
The selection of food available and service in the bar and restaurant were beyond expectations. Facilities were good.
The decor in the bedroom was a little tired and would benefit from redecoration.
Spa facilities, staff friendly and helpful, food good
Noisy children in rooms near us and playing in corridors.
Leisure facilities were excellent, rooms very clean and beds very comfortable. The staff couldn't do enough for us would definitely visit again.
You have really amazing staff forking there! That is your big bonus. Facility are ok but looks a bit tired at places specifically outside in front.
Attention to detail. Limescale on taps and quiet a lot in the bath too. Big black hair in the toilet. You should change your check out time for a bit later.
We as couple chose North Lakes hotel, Penrith as our staying point for our two days visit to Lake District thinking to have a good rest. First night had surprise when we were provided two single beds joined together and for the next night we were moved to an interconnecting room with a neighbour snoring whole night and with loud tv early morning leaving us nowhere. Staff was not helpful at all. Offered 25 percent off for one night only. They Couldn't care less. Not at this hotel again
Comfortable beds, friendly staff, great pool. Personalised cookies for children. Free Wifi (but see negatives)
Expensive restaurant. No air con and a window that opened no more than an inch, and no fan even resulting in not a good night's sleep. For a family of 2 adults and 2 children, only 3 robes (2 adult, 1 child) & 3 sets of towels provided. Yet 2 childrens cookies so obvious that 2 children were coming. So a little more attention to detail; needed. Wifi was a bit hit & miss.
staff were extremely helpful food and facilities were excellent we had an age range of 7 to 87 and all were well catered for
nothing not to like
spa restaurant location friendly staff
Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable bedroom, room, bar and restaurant service and food good. Bathroom OK though my cleaning cloth was stained; thankfully I had my own
Not impressed by the spa; forgot that I should expect to see children in pool even after 6pm because of holiday season; or should I?Cleaners in changing rooms should visit more frequently and be more vigilant; the rooms were sloppy and messy when I was there. Unimpressive sauna
The hotel is quite nice with friendly staff and a great pool.
The people in room 231 who did not control their screaming kids from 0545 am until they left at about 0800 am.
Location - great for breaking up a long journey
Breakfast was served far too late. We had an early start so could not make it (and we had booked on a B and B basis). there was a notice up telling visitors that the breakfast time would be very busy - surely the simple answer is to serve breakfast for longer???
Poor bed Food and drink too expensive when compared to other hotels in the area
Nice reception ,bar and restaurant.
Rooms very tired, food the wrong side of average and for £140 a night breakfast is not included!!!!
