Peace and quiet.
Distance from Ambleside
Noise from the dining room below, was in bed early for a race the following day. Room 7 Couldn't get to sleep til 12pm.
View from the room Quality of the food Excellent service
I like the fact that the bed was a very comfy, super king size and the linens were lovely. Location is excellent, staff were friendly and welcoming. Ample car park too which matters.
No shelf or cupboard in the bathroom to put toiletries on, and no bath, only a shower :-( Also it was quite noisy, a big party were in, so not the hotels fault. Restaurant menu and standard of food was good, however a bit expensive in my opinion.
Loved the location,staff very good,free and easy feel even though you were in a hotel the location was great for all parts of conniston the water, and the village.Food excellent quality and served well did take a little time, however worth waiting for. Already booked a return visit.
Food a bit overpriced but as I said it was good quality. Floors a bit creaky from room above woke up a few times however only to be expected in such an old house.
Poor service at breakfast Room a little shoddy in places.
The views were excellent and the location superb. The food at dinner was sublime and the service to match. The duty manager was excellent. * Thoroughly recommend walking down to the lake pier!
The breakfast experience could be improved.
lovely old building with lots of character. Nice quiet relaxing atmosphere
car park was full on arrival -but this is a minor point -would not wish them to lose garden to enlarge it
Cramped room poor lighting poor cleanliness.
Absolutely love the setting by Lake Coniston.
The food menu has changed and we didn't find it as good as the set menu that they used to have.
The room was fine - small for £82.50 for a single, and with a strong smell of cooking through the one tiny window, but it is the Lakes and I guess that's what you pay. I was attending a sporting event with an early start and the staff started breakfast an hour early so those attending could eat, which was good of them (they were certainly not obliged to do this).
One vegetarian option for dinner in this day and age! And it was penne pasta in tomato and basil sauce - yes it had some goats cheese, but otherwise pretty much what I cook the kids for tea when I can't be bothered. Didn't really feel like paying £13.50 for that. In the end I had the only veggie starter (beetroot and goats cheese salad - good job I like goats cheese and didn't want a starter AND a main), which was very nice. But take note - vegetarians do exist these days and they do want dinner. Even many meat eaters like to pick meatless options from time to time. Rather than bunging one thing on the menu and thinking "veggie box ticked" chefs should think "is this something I would happily pay money for?"
Excellent location. Staff very attentive and helpful-they were wonderful Good meals and well served
Cleaning of rooms in the afternoon- obviously the hotel policy- this was inconvenient. Bedding not changed-even though the visit was for four nights.
A view of "Old man of Coniston" from bedroom window and a jetty to catch the boat at the rear of hotel. Short safe walk along cycle path to the town. Pleasant bar area. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Well maintained, bright shower room. Comfortable bed and pillows. A Lovely Hotel.
Our stay was too short!
Minutes away from the town centre. Great gardens and building Room comfortable
Room was cold due to radiator not working - BUT the lady on the desk brought an electric heater.
Contemporary decor, good breakfast, lovely location on lake side. Short walk to village with good pubs.
The room we stayed in was opposite the main stairwell to Reception & the Restuarant. This meant it was a little noisy in the morning.
I liked the peace and quietness
The water from the shower ran around the toilet area.
location, we only stayed the one night, and didn't arrive until after 8 in the evening, and left at 7 in the morning, so we basically just slept at the hotel.
we had two room's, one no 23, very satisfied, the other was a junior suite, which wasn't worth the money, the room was at the rear of the hotel, with access from outside, it was near the hotels waste skip, and on the roadside, on the ground floor, you could hear everything from the room above, the clatter from rubbish going in the skip, plus traffic noise, just about ensured a sleepless night, and there was a used blanket thrown in the wardrobe, which left us feeling the room cleaning had been skimped on. at checkout, which was 7-0 am when the reception opened,( we had things to do elsewhere at that time), at 5mins to seven, the receptionist who had just arrived pointed out to me that she didn't start until seven, and suggested i came back at eight, when i told her i was checking out at seven she reluctantly agreed to help me, after along glance at the clock before she did. She also told me i should have sorted my checkout the night before, however i pointed out to her that my internet booking said pay on departure, and how would i know any different. So i left this hotel with not the best impression.
Location is lovely. So quiet and peaceful. Just right to unwind.
Water pressure in the shower was awful.
We found Waterside a very comfortable stay.the location is beautiful with pretty Lakeland views, and the room was great, with a very comfy bed. We especially liked the bar opening on to the garden just by the lake. It's also great to be able to stroll up into Coniston.
Breakfast service was a little slow and inattentive, though breakfast itself was fine. Maybe put butter on the buffet, have coffee / tea available freely? Couldn't get into the WiFi We were surprised to find the restaurant closed on Saturday evening "because of a wedding party".
Right next to Coniston Lake, so a gorgeous backdrop to the morning and evening. Easy to get out and walking around. We had a courtyard apartment and this was nice and quiet.
the grounds of this hotel lead straight onto Coniston lake - wonderful location and great nature - swans with cygnets and ducks with ducklings even a resident heron or two
The suite and the scenery was beautiful. It was the best nights sleep we've ever had. Can't wait to go back again.
The slow service at breakfast was a pain.
Exceptional staff that could not be more helpful friendly and efficient! The room was very comfortable and tasteful. The breakfasts were fabulous, both in choice and taste. I shall be staying there again and would recommend it to anyone.
Cannot think of anything I did not like.
We checked in 9:15, just after they had finished serving food, however they asked if we had eaten and they offered to make us food. Lovely staff, very welcoming and accomadating. The views at the back and the front of the hotel are just beautiful.
I wish we'd stayed another night. We only stayed one night as a stop on our way up to Scotland.
