    The rooms were very clean and the food was excellent. The staff were very helpful, as we needed an early breakfast on two mornings. Good range of beers.

    Unfortunately, we stayed at a busy weekend with Coniston lake swim and also many other visitors enjoying the late summer weather. This did mean that the staff were stretched, but they were very polite and helpful.

    The relaxed atmosphere, that you can bring your dog with you and they can stay in your room and are allowed downstairs in the pub. Lovely place

    The bed! It was so hard (my bed at home is very soft), I struggled to sleep the first night & woke up with back pain the whole stay

    Great place as our base for walking. Rooms very contemporary and clean. Good night's sleep had. Homemade pizza for supper was very tasty as was huge full English breakfast. Staff helpful and friendly despite being very busy due to it being a bank holiday weekend. Will be back

    Lovely room, excellent food, dog-friendly

    Just managed to get a table for a meal in the bar on Saturday, no chance of an evening meal Sunday, far too full. Had to drive elsewhere. Would have liked to be warned in advance so we could book table before coming. Village event made it worse.

    Friendliness/helpfulness of staff. No complaints except for... no lounge to sit in. Downstairs full of people eating, nowhere to sit except bedroom, or bar, not a place a woman alone would choose to sit.

    See last page. No chair in bedroom. Nowhere to sit except on bed for a whole evening.

    Beautiful setting and views over fields and hills. Good restaurant serving good range of meals. Adjoining Wilson's "deli" handy for snacks and ice creams

    Only grumble might be the bedding being too heavy/warm but it was a rare summer heat wave!

    Delighted with the bedroom. Quality fittings and specialised lighting.

    Confused by the breakfast menu with what was included in the price and what wasn't.

    I have been going to the Wilsons Arms for many years , but unfortunately not very often in the last 17 years. Mrs Mayvers is still the perfect hostess , and the development and modernisation in keeping with the area. Myself and my wife had a wonderful evening , with excellent good , followed by a simply fabulous breakfast, the next day. Can't wait to return, maybe for a few more days next time.

    Nothing!!! Love the place!

    Breakfast was very good. Bathroom spotless.

    Smart room, but rather small. Described as a superior double room, but apart from some fancy fittings it was only "fair"

    We looked forward to our evening meal, but it was very mediocre. Very greasy meals. Staff "hovering" to collect plates. Meal expensive for what we got. Breakfast on last day took an hour to serve! No apology from staff... they blamed the "chef". Undercooked sausages and strange tasting eggs. After the first evening meal we made other arrangements.
