Excellent food, both bistro dinner and breakfast. Great attention to detail. Warm, friendly bar; comfy residents' lounge - ideal for a Feb visit.
Slightly dated decor in rooms but very comfortable.
Nothing to dislike!
Very comfortable big bed. Very clean. Food and service very good indeed. Great to come back to after a day out. Always enjoy coming here.
Gorgeous, comfortable and warm hotel. Lovely bedrooms.
We booked on the internet and didn't realize the hotel could actually accommodate dogs in outside lodge rooms. We would have loved to have taken our dog!
Me 20 and my boyfriend 19 spent a wonderful weekend away here, staff were fantastic! The atmosphere here is amazing and food was beautiful! I shall be recommending The Pheasent! We will be back
After coming away from the pheasant and checking there website we saw a deal which including a meal voucher we were not offered this on arrival.
Location, Friendliness, Food
Nothing. Could have been more tea/coffee in the room, but it comes if you ask, and this is being a bit picky
We stayed at The Pheasant Inn during the Christmas holiday period. We had an amazing experience overall - the staff were absolutely superb & went out of the way to make our stay comfortable. Cannot fault anything at all really - the breakfast was excellent & the chef even cooked some risotto (not on the menu) for lunch as we are vegetarian. There is an excellent walk to be had from right outside the hotel doorstep, climbing up to Sale Fell, which we thoroughly enjoyed. All in all, thoroughly recommend & we will definitely be planning a visit & stay again.
Characterful property in great , quiet location. Food in restaurant was excellent as was the breakfast. Service very pleasant and friendly
Could do with sprucing up the decor in places. No milk in bedroom & toiletries not replenished.
Helpful and friendly staff. Nice food Traditional and quaint, loved the log fires and stoves Use of the spa was great also
restaurant closed on the Sunday and Monday we were there, but the bistro was nice
Well appointed bedrooms and public areas very comfortable. Staff extremely helpful and food excellent.
pricey limited dinner menu bedrooms very warm
warm and friendly place with great food. Really super.
no dislikes at all.
friendly service room overall comfortable
noisy room right by an extractor fan for the kitchen from 7am to 9.30pm, slightly shabby decor in places Avoid the room called Matterdale if you want peace and quiet
Restaurant and bistro food were excellent .
Charged for newspaper that was not delivered on morning of departure.
Welcoming and friendly staff. Excellent food. Cosy atmosphere with log fires on wet days. The Hawkshead bitter was excellent.
Sleep disturbed in Matterdale by noise from kitchen extractor but should probably have had more Hawkshead bitter and gone to bed later
Room , facilities , breakfast and peace and quite
Fire alarm went off twice early hours and there was no acknowledgement in the final bill that this had ruined our sleep. We had to congregate in the car park at 3.30am and no fire marshall was present.
The attitude of the staff, really pleasant, but not in your face. The open fire and squashy chairs. The gardens, I can't wait to go back when the weather will be good enough to enjoy them.
My partner didn't enjoy his meal on our first night. The fish was 'more batter than fish'. When we pointed this out we only got an 'oh what a shame' from the server. BUT the food from then on was wonderful.We enjoyed ourselves so much we have already booked another stay.
Very friendly atmosphere and charming staf
A lovely old inn full of character and carefully restored with beautiful private gardens for guests to use. It was nice to have a choice of restaurants in the evening. The room and bathroom were spacious and well appointed.
The smokers did congregate outside our window and chat but they weren't there for too long.
Everything - charming.
A few signs of damp in bathroom (not injurious to health but touch of paint would be good.
Unfortunately the fire alarms went off at 4am and all the guests (some quite elderly) groped their way outside with no assistance or guidance - there seemed to be no staff on site. Eventually a member of staff arrived, said it was a false alarm and we all went back to bed. Half an hour later the same thing happened, but this time we stayed put. We didn't get back to sleep again. These things happen, but a member of staff should have been on hand from the moment the alarm went off, not some 20 minutes later! No apologies then, though there were in the morning. Consequently NOT a restful night.
Very pleasant staff and comfortable rooms downstairs. Food good.
It was impossible to turn off the heated towel rail in our bathroom and consequently the room was unbearably hot at night. It did not seem that this could be corrected.
Staff very friendly and helpful, bedroom overlooked the garden was lovely
Toilet seat not secure
We only stayed one night but we couldn't have been looked after better. It is in a super quiet position surrounded by delightful gardens. It was very comfortable and the food super.
A lot of effort has gone into upgrading the appearance generally and for the most part it has been a great success. However in our bedroom there was some peeling wallpaper and signs of water ingress.
everything was just right,the staff were customer focussed and kindly.Personally I received good tuition in using my newly acquired IPad from a most helpful member of staff so my confusion did not affect my comfort THANKYOU
NOTHING.Apart from forgetting to hand in our key which we realised In Scotland. I am using this communication to apologise and confirm that it will be returned but without a note attached
