Location is ideal, close to everything. Room 16, very comfortable and cozy, excellent breakfast.
There wasn't anything that we didn't like.
Excellent friendly staff and very comfortable rooms.being December the outside weather was cold but the hotel was warm and welcoming.Dinner in the restaurant although not cheap was very good?We required an early breakfast before the dining room was open and the staff went out of their way to make sure we gota hot breakfast before the journey home.
Unable to book a single Saturday night.Given the time of year it was a surprise that you could not book just a Saturday night.Apart from that a very nice hotel that we will return to again.
Excellent food; a well managed hotel; great outlook across gardens.
King bed was two zipped singles. Bed quality could be better for a 4 star hotel.
Friendly staff, only ate breakfast in the restaurant but it very good in a lovely room. Nice touches, restful stay,
not there long enough to try the spa!
Superb for a short break in the Lakes 5min walk into Grasmere. Riverside rooms excellent views and large rooms.
The hotel itself is excellent but the staff and overall service is what really makes it a great place to stay. They are all friendly and efficient.
The WiFi signal is not great (which they do forewarn you about) but we didn't find this a problem as were there to enjoy the outdoors.
We thought the menu choices were excellent The Chef's were very accomplished Chris the General Manager runs a very good team Well done
The bedroom lighting was a bit dim also the resturant was dark in the evening could not see what was on your plate - I have nothing wrong with my eye sight
Excellent dinner, well-run hotel, with relaxed feel.
1)Wine list would benefit from some half-bottles, which would encourage people to try the excellent wines available. 2) Room was fine, but felt a bit gloomy because of dormer window.
Comfy bed, excellent breakfast served in lovely light restaurant overlooking garden with hill views. Short walk into Grasmere where most walks start.
Room was fairly small with sloping ceilings so felt rather cramped and dark.
Location,staff,breakfast and a lovely spa.
Stayed in the Loughrigg Suite,room quite cold due to poor heating system,which didn't seem to be able to be fixed.
Lovely location,food was excellent,both breakfast and dinner!Room was comfortable and clean.Raxed atmosphere. Came for a special occasion and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay.Will definetly be booking again soon!
Excellent location next to the River Rothay. Ideal for a relaxing holiday.
The spa was fabulous
The vegetarian breakfast
The comfort of the public areas and our room. Helpful and well trained staff. Evening meal was creative and delicious. Breakfast: wide range of choices and excellent English full cooked breakfast.
Staff have not organised control of guests leaving their towels on the hot beds while using the jacuzzi facilites, so I stood around with nowhere to sit down. Breakfast: Citrus fruit could be fillited so that guests don't have to fight with the membrane. A chunk of smoked haddock, oozing white deposit was dumped crudely on top of curried rice.
Perfect location, surrounded by fells, and the river Rothay running past the window, makes for a unique Lakeland experience.Staff are excellent. delicious food, served in a lovely restaurant, coffee relaxing in the lounge, Spa is great relaxation after along walk.
fantastic food, chef should be given credit, good bed, spa was fantastic after a long walk but could get crowded, efficient service, quality of bed linen, nice decor in bar area was really lovely, fab location
room was too small for price, bathroom wall rm 26,had paint peeling and damp, not really good enough for a 4 * hotel, not as clean as it could have been, carpet wasn't hoovered in the 4 days we were there! piped music the same every evening, and not loud enough especially in dining room for dinner which was spoiled because you could hear other peoples conversations, not relaxed enough, non played at all during breakfast which was way too clinical for us.
The food was really excellent; we checked out other local hotels but followed the recommendation of other guests and dined in each of the three nights.Well balanced and changing menu and each dish beautifully cooked and presented. Lovely tranquil setting with a fast running stream n the garden
Everything was perfect but the mountain location meant the wii-fi connection was patchy at times.
The comfort of the hotel and staff attention. Evening meal was very good standard. Room was fabulous.
The food, ambience and wonderful rooms. The staff were efficient unobtrusive and helpful.
Guests hogging the hot beds while using the jacuzzi. It would be good to have permission from the staff to remove robes and towels which are blocking the use of facilities.
I liked the location, the peacefulness of our room and the ease of access to other areas of the Lake District.
The price of dinner at £39-50 per head, with no other options available seemed exorbitant to me. The quality of breakfast on two of our three mornings was also quite poor; food had been kept warm for some time and the bacon on each day was too undercooked for our liking.
The management ethos of excellent service was demonstrated at all levels.
Friendly staff, convenient location, clean and quiet
WiFi throughput was intermittent. Definitely needs attention.
The room was excellent with a gorgeous balcony and outlook. Location fantastic and very relaxing.
Staff could have been more friendly, dinner menu very limited. Spa was adequate but no pool.
Location and restaurant
Bed and pillows were uncomfortable
Everything. Fab weekend away. Luxury setting, luxury hotel.
