Great staff. Food and location
Piped music and room too hot
Location, food esp breakfast and comfort. Hotel very clean
Great hotel in a great area,1st class, No negatives at all. Would recommend to all!!
The whole ambience of the place. The staff were great and the food - my husband loved the Roast lamb - he ordered it 2 nights running! Very comfortable beds and the room had a view of the lake and was comfortable and we did like the decorations on the stairs. We loved our stay with you.
The room had a very low ceiling and shower over the bath was a bit low for my husband who is 6ft - he had to bend down to shower!
Breakfast served till 12.
Room was a bit small.
Friendly helpful staff Location Excellent breakfasts Comfortable room and public areas
Everything, food, service, location, nothing was a problem. Probably the best service I have had in a hotel in Britain in a long time? Not to be missed.
Nothing, had to leave....
I could see lake Windermere and the cruise boats from my hotel window.
In my room unfortunately i could smell the food cooking for the restaurant all day and the breakfast early morning. One of my pet hates is to smell food in my bedroom. I could also hear the noise and talk from the kitchen. Disappointingly for me when i went for a walk my room was above the kitchen! Another point to mention is that there was no lift so you either have to wait for help or take cases up yourself. This hotel was not a cheap option so i feel that i should point these negatives out.
location staff very good
given a room that allowed pets and not told, had a strange odour. In room facilities could have been better, hair dryer didn't work and room only had a bath and no shower. There could have been bottled water in the room. On the whole the room was comfortable and adequate for our needs
Nice hotel, at lakeside within 30 seconds,food lovely, staff very helpful, room 7 good position for lake view.
Is was a Lovely suprise to find such friendly staff and cosy accomodation.
Very friendly staff Modern clean rooms Excellent breakfast selection
Location and the whole faciloty

What is there not to like!
Everything about the hotel and staff
Two days was not long enough !!!
Welcoming & friendly staff Good location Good size room and comfy bed Good parking facilities Lots of flower baskets and nice garden area Extended breakfast time, good choices and prompt staff
No Lift Wine over priced Evening dinner over priced 40 minutes too long to wait once dinner order placed Sea bass; one small fillet, over cooked and not very appetising Overbath shower difficult to regulate water tempreature From a female prespective, need one good over mirror light in bedroom for make-up etc; spotlights in bathroom no good because of steamed mirror
Location & facilities
Fantastic setting excellent service and the breakfast choice was amazing. Def come back again.
Friendly staff, good size rooms, very comfortable.
Would like bedroom window to open a bit more to ventilate the room a bit more. Maybe also a cafetiere at breakfast instead of filter coffee top ups (although staff were very quick at refilling)
Great friendly and efficient staff,great ambience and the Lakeland Breakfast is the best!
Nothing negative to say
Warm welcome, unfilingly pleasant helpful staff. Most excellent food.
Everything ! Cannot fault this hotel, It deserves 4 stars not 3
We liked the lovely friendly greeting from the receptionist. Also the Hotel and bedroom was spotlessly clean the Staff were all polite and friendly and the food was Excellent and served to us very efficiently. We will be going back and will recommend to our friends.
We thought the wine was a little expensive.
