10/10 Exceptional

The hotel in general was spotless as was our lovely room which had a very comfortable bed.Being on the top floor we had a great view from the window. The breakfasts were filling and well staffed ( which feels like a luxury these days !) The grounds were well maintained and attractive to spend time in beside the flowers and the fountains. We had a very relaxing 2 nights in this rural setting

Don't stay on the top floor
A lovely quiet country hotel. The gym was adequate, pool small but ok. sauna, steam room ok. Lovely peaceful garden. There were a lot of guests but it did not feel crowded. Only problems were 1) Top floor room was VERY hot and one window could not be opened. 2) No lifts to top floor. 45 steps to top floor with heavy cases are not fun. I would definitely return

I'll be visiting again
I really cannot fault this hotel. Would definitely recommend. It's a little out of the way but it gives the perfect location after a busy day walking the lake District. We were nervous about taking our 4 mth old pup and worried dog friendly meant it wouldn't be clean. Far from it. No doggy smells. They have the perfect balance. You eat in the bar area with the dog. I like this idea as I didn't need to worry about other people getting peace to eat. Our room was at the back which made it easy to take get out to the gardens. My daughter was in the pool each day. She didn't want to leave. We ate in the hotel the first night. The food was great. Drinks are city prices, you expect that. Got to mention the very friendly staff. The lady at reception when we checked in was so bubbly and welcoming. Every staff member was excellent. My daughter left her bear at the hotel. They are kindly sending him home. Ill be recommending this hotel and hope to be back. The picture is from the bar area. Over looks the pond with a family of ducks the kids can feed.
