Stayed here overnight during Storm Ciara after visiting the Lakes Distillery what a wild and windy night!
I’d contacted the hotel a few days before we went to see if we could have a twin bedded rather than a double room as I broke my shoulder 6 weeks ago and am quite restless during the night & didn’t want to disturb my husband; the chap I spoke to said there wasn’t one available but would see what he could do and when we checked in we were given a twin room, which I was very grateful for.
The hotel itself is a little odd in that there seems a lot of large,empty rooms, but the room itself was clean, and the beds quite comfy. It looks like it has been redecorated and the bathroom fittings were new. The carpet however had seen better days and was a little threadbare in places. Despite the wind howling round outside we slept well!
Breakfast - the continental options were reasonably good and the bread for toasting was lovely and there were even crumpets! The hot options were cooked to order rather than buffet style which was lovely and we were very impressed with the Cumbrian breakfast and the quality of the produce.
All the hotel staff we encountered were professional, helpful and friendly. less
