We pushed the boat out with this one and paid a lot more than we usually do for a family hotel room - although recognise location and peak time were part of this. In the most important ways it was well worth it (location, friendliness of staff, great breakfast with good selection for all, parking right by the Lake). The little niggles were: WIFI signal was sporadic, two mugs and glasses provided for three guests, poor hairdryer (gave up in the end and went out with wet hair). Small things, but easy to improve and would help to improve the sense of value. We had a family room which was quite tight on space, but it was fine for a couple of nights.
Fabulous location and very nicely presented hotel. Friendly staff who wanted to help with all queries. Lovely breakfast - our son loved his pancakes with bacon and syrup and we had the Fell Walker which we just about deserved. Our room was cleaned and we got a paper each morning delivered in good time. Beds were good. Parking available which given the location (right by the top of the Lake), was very handy.
