This was our second stay in 6 months at the Coniston, the hotel is very modern and bright, it was all very clean and the staff were excellent, friendly and helpful, the breakfasts were one of the best I've had (and we've had loads believe me), it's located within a 10 minute walk of the town and a short drive to the nearest coast so it's an ideal base and includes free wifi.
The only issue was the evening meal, starter of curried salmon was a bit 'tasteless' and the main course of lamb with jus was again a bit tasteless and grisly, really not very good value to be honest.
All in all a good 2 night stay,on reflection maybe we should have considered eating locally rather than eat at the hotel.
Certainly worth a stopover though. less
