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
Rooms meals beer
The free Spa facilities that were part of the booking.
Nothing...the stay was perfect
Excellent service, food and accommodation. The staff were all very helpful Good traditional hotel which had not lost its original character
Good staff, restaurant for breakfast good Bistro for supper quite good though menu uninspiring
Bar area dark and gloomy- tired looking
The hotel was comfortable in a 1950s sense.
Being placed over the kitchen with a very noisy extractor below. Trying to call the hotel en route to tell them I would be late arriving and having to be put on the answerphone to leave a message which was returned much later. Ringing down from my room to find there was no response from Reception and no answerphone A dirty kettle in my room.
Food very good ,and plenty of choice Quiet and relaxed atmosphere.
The location is readily accessible but off the beaten track. Our room was very spacious, comfortable and quiet (apart from the fire alarm!). Staff were unobtrusive yet helpful. The food was excellent.
Fire alarm at 1.00 am!
We had a meal and for a pub meal it was fantastic. The chef is brilliant. We really enjoyed our stay
The staff were excellent & friendly, & gthe food was good.
All the stairs even though the staff helped with the luggage. Though double glazed windows, there was still road noise.
Extremely comfortable hotel. Beautiful setting, very peaceful. Food was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful.
Great staff,great food and great accommodation.
Not a thing.
The staff were kind and helpful. Good location for touring the Lake District.
The hotel is grubby and run down, it is noticeable immediately, even the front doormat is torn and mouldy! It needs to be totally updated. Our room had peeling and torn wallpaper.
Comfortable & excellent staff
A bit expensive
