Staff Food Setting Dog Lovely atmosphere Clean Warm
Games room was a bit poor and not very inviting!
Location Friendliness Views Facilities Cost
The atmosphere was great. I felt welcome and wasn't uncomfortable even though I was on my own and didn't know anyone. Staff were friendly and made me feel like a regular even though it was my first visit!
Friendly staff who went out of their way to provide wheat/gluten free food for one of our sons.
Very friendly relaxed atmosphere, fab location, a very warm welcome from all staff, great value for money food.
Last orders for dinner are at 8.00 pm.
It's hard to imagine a better view Lovely old building - plenty of character
Location, food, and friendly welcoming staff.
I do not think I ever found out where all the showers and toilets on the first floor were located!
Friendly comfortable stay.
Breakfast a tad cold the second morning.
Attention to special dietary requirements no problem.
Shortage of toilets on first floor.
View was absolutely beautiful, perfect location for walking
The social enviornment was lacking conpared to what is usually found in hostels and the foos was rather bland
Pack lunch available to buy. Lovely duvet and pillow, comfortable beds. Numerous showers. Lovely location
Not able to select breakfast items had to pay @£5 for all, cereal, toast, tea and cooked. Did ask for just cereal & toast at lower price, not possible!
The location - it's the first thing that hits you. The drive to the hostel from the M6 is long with lots of twists and turns... but that only adds to the suspense and, the first glimpse of the screes is magical; The hostel - is beautiful and well managed with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and a good selection of books and games in the stately lounge / library; The staff - are attentive and kind and Bob the manager very knowledgeable about the area and its economy. He also takes the beautiful panoramic photos which adorn the walls; The beds and bathrooms - are clean and comfortable, showers are deliciously hot on aching legs, linen is provided and you don't have to self-cater if you want a break from the kitchen! The food is wholesome, plentiful and extremely good value and there is a well stocked bar to complement the menu; Walks - something for everyone and easily accessed from the front door; Nature - Take a leisurely stroll down to the south-western end of the lake (start of scree footpath through the richly green Low Woods) to see the most beautiful greens and golds in the water: Nature's stained glass, or listen out for peregrine falcons, woodpeckers and owls. Bliss. History - curl up on a sofa (with a blanket from your room on chillier nights) and read former 1960's resident Mavis Parr's letter in the house history folder of her 2 year stay when she was a young mum. Visit St. Olaf's church and graveyard for a sad and chilling reminder of the unforgiving nature of the mountains. The other folks - even if travelling alone, there'll always be a like-minded person to chat to, to laugh with and who will love the place as much as you do.
Forgetting my ear plugs - if you're a light sleeper you'll go mad without them. Fortunately you can buy some at the bar / reception. Only wished I'd known that before making the 32mile round trip to Whitehaven to get some... : /
The food in the evening was excellent, (we made our own breakfast). The staff were very friendly and helpful
very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful location, good facilities and food.
a beautiful house with history, nice staff! beside the lake, quiet and good scenery
Staff were incredibly good at, and helpful, with everything. Food was great. Accommodations well thought out (e.g., lights and power plugs at each bed - great)
Friendly, helpful staff excellent location and value for money. Will go again.
Excellent Youth Hostel.
Simply put: the staff are extremely friendly, the location is awe-inspiring and all for a very reasonable price! We will definitely visit again!
Children were allowed to run around the dining room whilst we were eating... the down-side of coming during half-term.
Breathtaking location. Helpful and friendly staff.
comfortable beds fantastic location no passing traffic! good on-site facilities including meals and drinks
I slipped on the floor of the shower room and hurt my leg quite badly - the surface was very slippery and I suffered knee and ankle ligament damage. This wasn't great as I was about to cycle off to Paris from London....
A very good location to be at
It smells funny
Everything it was great, enjoyed every minute and so did the party of 20 we took with us..loved it.
Having to leave
The manager here is excellent - really knowledgable about the local area, helpful in his advice and relaxed and friendly. The building is historic and the location stunning. A hidden gem on the West side of the lakes.
Great staff, great building, great location
Sleeping in a blackend lightless room of strangers- all different groupings, some to bed too early, some later, some up early, some later: how to sleep! The older people - that now dominate 'youth' hostels - tend to get their early and make sure they get the best beds in the dormitory...
