Fabulous VFM & location. Food really good.
Nice compact hotel with excellent facilities & fittings. Staff were attentive and efficient. Always pleasant and helpful. Restaurant food was generally good. A bit expensive but on par with the area.
location good, at the lakeside but an easy walk into Ambleside, Size and comfort of suite very relaxing.
Bathroom needed care and attention. Shower control fell to pieces when attempting to turn on. Some flaking paint apparent.
Everthing Fantastic Room
would have liked to have checked in before 1500
Location was very good nice being right on the lake but be within walking distance to Ambleside.
Drinks and meals quite expensive.
views from the balcony breakfast menu good facilities
saturday evening price was a bit high relative to the sunday price
The inn is in a superb location right on the edge of the lake. We were in the Fisher's Landing suite which is a very good size and nicely appointed with a superb balcony view. The staff were very friendly and breakfast in the morning was of a very high quality. The room and breakfast represented very good value and made for a great break.
The evening meals were very over-priced. I would have thought 2/3rds of the price would have been more reasonable if still high. The service in the little guest dining room in the evening was very mixed. The first night everything was fine but on two subsequent nights younger staff pretty much ignored us unless stopped and asked for service. The price of drinks was also high, even by normal UK standards. (A single large glass cost more than you would pay for the whole bottle in a supermarket) I was particularly amused at the price of a bottle being greater than the cost of buying single glasses! If staying here, plan on eating somewhere else in the evening.
location, pub atmosphere & value for money
smell of cooking in restaurant area
I stayed for one night and will return at some point in the future! The hotel was in a fabulous location and for the cost of my stay met and well exceeded my expectations! Staff were superb and the food was simply fabulous!
Great place with great atmosphere. right on the water edge, as in the name :) Food in restaurant met expectations. All in all we did not need to go anywhere, location and hotel was perfect.
I think the manager in the back office can try just a little bit to look more friendly. Everytime we were at the desk he gave us an annoying look. Not that we dealt with him directly, the staff were excellent and very friendly.
I liked everything about this hotel and would certainly go there again shame about the weather tho'''
Maybe that it was very dog friendly
location,nearness to town
high price for the time of year,lots of stairs,so so food
Location, size of room, food was brilliant
Drinks a little on the dear side.
a place for quiet relaxation
nothing to dislike
Lovely hotel on shore of lake, friendly helpful staff, lovely rooms, the one we were in had a few of the lake and the road but there was no noise. Food was very good in the restaurant . Breakfast plenty of choice and well presented.
Nice relaxing weekend with family, no rushing, no hassle, most enjoyable.
Everything - apart from the passing traffic. The location is superb, the staff relaxed and friendly, the place well sorted.
Location, friendly, attentive staff, clean comfortable rooms, excellent dining and well stocked bar.Fantastic views, ample parking and close to local amenities.
bar food, crowds
We had a lovely room with a view of the lake. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The location is spot on and the breakfast was first class.
The fact that we had to leave.
we enjoyed everything & intend to return!
The positioning of the hotel really suited is and enable us to carry out local walks, enjoy the lake trips and carry out local car tours.
The item was the tight acces to our room, particularly when getting cases to our room.
We love this place, rooms, food & staff always brilliant
Excellent location. Well-presented studio room. Good parking. Short walk to town centre and ferry.
Traffic noise present from all studio rooms. Staff helpful but provided 'pub -style' service rather than hotel. Could smile a little more! Several people had incorrect breakfast meals presented and cooked breakfast took a while to arrive. Breakfast just OK.
The staff are excellent and go to any means to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Location cannot be bettered, close to waters edge with beautiful views of Windermere.
Room had been cancelled in error by reception but satisfactory solution was found. Note to Inn management: Do not accept cancellation from anyone other than person on booking form.
