    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Meals were extremely good and rooms have recently been refurbished and are of a high standard. Very clean and pleasant sorroundings. The dining facilities are a bit quirky but so nice to break away from corporate surroundings.

    Great welcome, nicely updated room, the food was excellent and is within an easy walk to Hill Top Farm (Beatrix Potter). We were able to leave our car in the car park while we visited the farm. Hotel is in a beautiful location and was not noisy at night.

    The location was good, it was in countryside but access to Bowness was easy via the ferry. The bedrooms had been recently renovated and were like new as were the bathrooms. There was a friendly and laid back atmosphere and the service in the bar/dining room was excellent. The Inn is dog friendly and many people took advantage of this although whilst we were there the dogs were never intrusive at any time. The breakfasts were excellent and there was plenty of choice.

    The bar meals in the evening were ok but not up to restaurant standards though prices were similar to those of a good restaurant.

    We loved the location and the comfort of the Hotel. We would go out all day and look forward to returning to our warm and welcoming Hotel. The food in the Hotel was lovely and we probably had a meal there most nights, but thought we should at least try a pub in Hawkhead once for a meal. Breakfast was really nice too. Just my husband and I went and we left our dog at home but wished we had taken her as the Hotel welcomed dogs and we loved this. The weather was not great but you have to expect this. All in all we had a really nice break and look forward to returning next year.

    Fabulous

    Lovely views and easy local walks, real fires, good food, local ales, comfortable rooms, friendly staff, superb refurbishment that makes it a good stopping point for ramblers as well as short breaks. Plenty of space unlike Tower Bank Arms, a tiny but world famous pub down the road.

    Breakfast teapots are commendably large but need 3 teabags rather than 2. Choose superb poached eggs rather than (to our taste) overcooked scrambled.

    Superb

    The great hotel. From the outside, the building looks old, but the interior seems to be completely remodeled. Our room was clean, bright, comfortable; especially the bed and mattress was fabulous. The restaurant is great and breakfast delicious and really big. Maps, books, tourist guides are available for planning your trips. Hot chocolate in the room, fresh fruit ready during breakfast etc. - many many details that make you happy. The staff is both friendly and professional. We intended to stay for 2 nights but we really liked the place and decided to extend our stay.

    There is nothing negative at all.

    The shower was wonderful, best ever. Perfect spray and great water pressure. Room was very comfortable and quite. Easy parking, short drive to lake but too far to walk.

    Horrible Food. Breakfast was ok but don't eat dinner there. Really slow service, several mix-ups on the order and when the meal did arrive the food was not very good. Also phone prices seemed high.

    Fabulous

    The hotel had a friendly relaxed atmsophere an had an 'away from it all ' feeling. Bar meals were good quality as was the breakfast. The location was great to explore the west of Windermere and the bathroom was modern and roomy.

    Although the bedroom was a good size there were no bedside cabinets (I'm being very fusssy).
