Maybe consider a more interesting vegetarian cooked breakfast - choice is great is you eat meat, not so much if you don't.
Room was so comfortable, amazing bathroom, great views. Dinner in the hotel was lovely. Staff were really great - gave us a lift to our next hotel when we couldn't get hold of a taxi :)

Nothing at all.
Just about everything. Especially the beautiful location; the warm welcome and helpful attitude of the hosts (without being over-the-top); the comfortable room (including spa bath - so relaxing after a long walk); the food (dinner and breakfast were both excellent).

The wet room style bathroom, only because I personally do not like a wet floor in the main part of the bathroom. Perhaps some slight improvements to the cubicle doors could reduce the water splash? It was only a slight issue.
The service was first class as always, the food standard was excellent, Michelin star and the professionalism of the proprietor's was evident throughout the hotel experience. This hotel will be first on my list for future visits. Excellent value for money.

Booking.com website not clear enough about facilities to take pet
When it was realised (on the day of arriving) that we had to notify the hotel that we were bring a pet (as they only have one pet friendly room) the hotel were very great and shuffled rooms around and sorted things out for us. Suggest booking direct with hotel not through booking.com.

Some details missing on menu or unavailabilities ,I think in such a small establishment the chef should be visiting customers at the evening meal ...
Very nice couple who run the hotel very friendly . Beautiful location and well appointed rooms . Nice to be able to eat well in the evening and a good wine list .

Small choice on Menu (delicious food, just personal preference. Would be a good idea to change the menu each night also.)
Great attentive staff. Excellent Location. Fantastic Room. Peaceful and tranquil

Bathroom outdated and very shabby maintained, grouting, sink taps could have been mixer taps, mattresses where different hardness levels, (twin beds)

Room (6) was small and narrow by bed - felt a bit claustrophobic - thought we might have been upgraded us considering what we paid overall - hotel must know this room borderline for letting at this kind of price I would have thought This place so small and intimate and so reliant on goodwill of hosts to have a pleasant time it was difficult to raise any issues we felt and potentially sour atmosphere for our short break Vegetarian food choice and quality was not great - plate of beans first night and pasta the next - so many great vegetarian recipes now that could have been sourced as I had said I was vegetarian in advance - served curdled custard on second night and nothing knocked off bill or any gesture like that This place is clearly much loved by a strong following of older couples - it has a hushed respectful style and managers and staff very pleasant - just not for us I guess
Central position Nice view from bedroom Friendly staff Good bathroom, great shower and jacuzzi bath

Having stayed here before, in one of the largest rooms, we felt slightly cramped this time in what was significantly smaller accommodation with no bath.
The setting is beautiful. The hotel has a very traditional feel but the refurbished bedroom was modern, very comfortable, with an excellently appointed wet room and a fine view down the valley to Derwentwater. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The dining experience was excellent - wonderful food beautifully presented, good wine list, attentive staff. Breakfast was also of the same high standard with a very wide choice of cooked food as well as continental style options. An altogether delightful stay.
