The views and the place in general
We didn't dislike anything but we did think the evening meal portions were very small . Although the food was very good we were still hungry after considering how much we paid for the meal and had to get some other food from a pub in the village after . But again the food was very good as was the breakfast
All the staff were lovely. The hotel is in a beautiful location with lovely gardens leading down to the jetty. We stayed in a suite located outside the main building but the rooms we did see in the hotel looked fresh and well decorated.
Apart from breakfast, the food although well presented was disappointing, bland and not worth the price. We paid for a suite but it was not worth £145 per night. Needs a good revamp. The lighting is dim, our windows faced onto a main road, the furniture and carpet have seen better days, upstairs floorboards creaked so much we could hear people getting out of bed to go to the loo! The shower drainage was slow causing it to overflow, the shower pressure was very poor and we expected a few more or at least a better selection of teas, coffees and milks in a suite.
Friendly staff, clean, good views from room
tutto era perfetto per noi
The location is stunning, and hotel itself was lovely, with an immaculately cleaned en-suite, and bedroom. We could not have wished for more friendly staff. The quality of the food was superb.
Nothing to report, as far as negatives go.
Very friendly and attentive staff.
we spent 2 days at this hotel very helpful staff great location the room was good i would stay again
Location, staff and setting. Comfort and warmth in the bar on arrival.
Packet bought gnocci at dinner was very disappointing since one would expect home made in such an hotel. However my friends meals were good. Poor effort for vegetarians.
Location was excellent for a weekend retreat. The evening meal in the restaurant was exceptional, together with the breakfast which you order just what you require and its served at your table.
The only downside was the checking in procedure, it does state you can check in at 3.00pm, we arrived at 2.45pm and had to wait the 15 minutes before we could check in albeit the rooms were ready.
Lovely location and nice grounds. Convenient for the village. The staff were very welcoming and friendly.
Our room was on 1st floor next to the stairs and lift making it rather noisy which unsettled our dog.
Lakeview room- I could have sat there for hours, just drinking in the view. Attentive staff. Lovely breakfast
The room was decorated to a high standard and the bed was so comfy. The staff were really friendly and the breakfast was excellent.
Nothing it was a pleasure to stay at Waterhead hotel. We will definitely be coming back.
The quilts on the bed were to die for lovely warm and cosy. Lovely mountain view from window. Lovely new en suite bathroom Lots of room. Good car parking facilities. good value if on the GBP 55 deal
Soup was only Luke warm . radiator in room 20 not big enough for the room so room quite chilly as weather was cold. tiles on bathroom floor very cold on your feet as only towel radiator in the en suite.
Guest information folder or receptionist when placing room service breakfast order, did not mention an additional £5 per person charge. Was not impressed when we came to check out. They just added it on to our bill, which was a bed and breakfast rate. Disgraceful!
I liked everything about this hotel. The location is excellent, staff are very helpful, clean comfortable room and a delicious quality breakfast. Have stayed here a few times now and will without a shadow of doubt be returning.
Gorgeous building right on Lake Coniston. Pet friendly Friendly and efficient staff Excellent food in the restaurant.
The locaion was very good with easy parking and very welcoming staff. The outlook from our room was excellent with views over the lake.
The food did not live up to expectations. The waiting staff were very pleasant but the variety and quality of the food was lacking. We ate in the dining room for our first evening and then decided to give it a second chance the next day - the dessert was definitely much better but the main course was not good.
Bed was very comfortable, staff helpful and friendly and breakfast was fine.
Decor was dated and tired looking internally. Shower in our room was less than powerful. Gardens needed attention.
the location was very good and the staff went out of they way to help you and to make the stay very nice and it was good food and good vale for money
car park got a bit full
We really enjoyed the proximity to Coniston Water, which is what my husband was interested in, as he has a passion for the history of Bluebird.
No negatives in my opinion.
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.
