              7.8

              Service from staff was excellent. Food excellent

              The room was poor value. Facing rear of the hotel, overlooking bin store and carpark, Had to have window curtains closed during day for privacy due to fact that room visible from rear footpath. Room and rear extension was very cold on arrival compared to main building which was warm and cosy... I would not be happy to accept a room like this again but I am certain that this is the exception as the rest of the hotel was fine.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Friendliness of staff.Position of Hotel is superb. Meals were much to our liking as they were what might be called Nouveau Cuisine, but might not have been sufficient for some people.

              Would have liked Tea and Coffee facilities in room.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Friendliness, efficiency and professionalism of staff. Superb breakfast .Wonderful view .Excellent location.

              Expensive room service. Tray charge prohibitive.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              It offers a dramatic view of Lake Windermere and the surrounding countryside. Service was excellent and the food exceptionally good.

              My friend and I both felt that the cost was excessive for the room offered and the meal...definitely not value for money.

              10.0

              Ambience, excellent food and wine, very attentative staff who are flexible. Rooms are very good and well serviced

              The exercise facility could be a little better

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              very friendly staff and most helpful, both breakfast and dinner were excellent. Beautiful setting for having drinks on patio.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              The service was exceptional and the standard of the food was even better. The hotel is faintly old-fashioned but that is not a criticism. It exudes refinement, quality and luxury whilst being extremely professionally run. Probably the best hotel I've ever stayed in.

              It's a little quirky - ie an old house - but this isn't a major criticism at all.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              This is a beautiful country house hotel that is very homely, the food is brilliant especailly the Gourment menu with the wines to accompany - a real treat.

              They appear to be adding an additional accommadation charge onto the bill which is added up very confusingly eventhough you have an agreed price through Booked.net

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Superb location, relaxed atmosphere, gourmet food, great rooms, great staff

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Exceptional service, comfort and food with spectacular views over Windermere to the fells beyond. Despite the impeccable standard of cleanliness, dogs are allowed in bedrooms and even provided with a blanket and 2 bonios. Very impressed with all aspects of our stay.

              Equipment installed in bedrooms/ bathrooms must be robust, work effectively and reflect the standard of the hotel. For instance, cheap CD players are notoriously fickle and a source of frustration. Either choose a brand like BOSE or abandon the idea. In the bathroom a piece of plastic fell off the shower door.

              Wonderful experience of English hospitality and genteel lifestyle!

              We loved everything. Fabulous location, fabulous view from our room. Great, efficient, friendly service. Gorgeous food.

              Slightly too formal atmosphere in the dining room, I think some background, classical or piano music would make it better.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              The friendly welcome and service. Delightful food, luxurious accommodation, and first class Spa facilities/treatments. It fully lives up to a well deserved reputation for excellence.

            • Couple
              8.8

              All very good. The food was excellent we would go back just for that.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              From the moment we arrived nothing was to much trouble, the staff were welcoming, friendly yet professional. Our 5 mnth old son was provided with a lovely cot, cellular blankets and his own towel. He loved the jacuzzi bath & made good use of the listening service whilst we enjoyed a beautiful meal in the restaurant. A delightful stay.

              A pool would have been lovely.
