Recent guest reviews

We came here for a special birthday in our family for two nights in November. Some of us had visited before and have had previous great stays and wanted to come back here. The staff were polite and helpful and all of the food was delicious and a wide variety was on offer. Breakfast was fresh and the dining rooms were beautifully decorated. The only disappointment was that the pool wasn’t open.- This however made no major difference to our stay. We hope to see you again soon!

We've stayed here many times but this is the first time we have visited since the multi million pound refurb. We popped in for afternoon tea as it was raining hard outside. I thought the bill might be high but the surroundings were delightful so I thought I would

Room was perfect and it had a very comfy bed. Service was excellent, staff very polite and friendly. Food was amazing - we had 6 course taster menu on the first night and then a 4 course meal on New Year's eve. The bacon sandwich was a nice surprise after the fireworks at midnight.

Booked the room for two nights between Christmas and New Year on . We got a free night due to accrual of 10 nights from previous nights away , but it was still £221 for the one night paid for , the most we have paid for a room . The hotel car park was packed out when we arrived and we ended up half abandoning our car with help from the reception staff . The hotel and reception are beautiful and the staff are super helpful with an easy check in. Our room was on the first floor down a long corridor, this is one big hotel . We had room 31 and on entry it was a little underwhelming, a tight space with two single beds , a table and mucky chairs plus a counter with tea/ coffee and biscuits . Rather plain decoration with few pictures and although a large window , no view as such other than looking at the occupants of the next door apartments . The bathroom was very nice and modern with underfloor heating ( lovely under foot) although there were a few patches of peeling paint and a large greasy mark in the wall paint . We had a quiet two night stay and the breakfast and service were first class with lovely friendly staff and a great view of the garden as it started to snow. The hotel is in a great spot over looking the lake but for the money we paid and dinner at £50 a head ( which we did not try ) it was an expensive experience and one we are unlikely to repeat. There are better value hotels around the lake and with better facilities such as spas and pools to enjoy too.

We took the new year package, stayed in a lake view room(bit small but very nice) The staff, food, and entertainment, including a fire work display all excellent, could not fault our stay.The staff could not have been more helpful, the fireworks at midnight where a bit special. We also took a very pleasant trip on the lake accompanied with some mulled wine, very nice

The hotel was decorated really nicely. Had a Lake View Room. The food was excellent afternoon teas, soup and sandwiches for lunches tasting menu on first night and 3 course choice menus on New Years Eve. There was also a boat trip on the lake with mulled wine. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a singer DJ and fireworks. A great package. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back next year.

Second time at this hotel to see in the New Year and just as enjoyable. Good to see some of the staff from last year and they really looked after the guests so well. We had two days of lovely food. Our room was very spacious and comfortable and we had a welcoming gift of local produce in our room. New Years Eve included a trip on Lake Windermere with mulled wine which was a good start to the evening festivities, then later on a champagne reception, 5 course dinner and live music/disco finishing off with a fire works display.

This hotel is lovely. The decor is great as you’d expect. Lovely views too well worth paying extra for a lake view. There was a mix up with the bathroom facilities in our room - due to a 3rd party website saying bath/shower combo when there was in fact only a walk in shower - so we were given a complimentary upgrade to a four poster room with bath and great view. This was all sorted out via email the day before we arrived :) The only issue we had was cooking smells from the restaurant in our lovely large bathroom. This smell was not in the bedroom, just in the bathroom and outside in the corridor during dinner service - and it was fish unfortunately! We mentioned this to reception on our way out to dinner. When we got back a few hours later we were told our bathroom had been re-cleaned. I had already explained it wasn’t an issue with the bathroom itself it was a smell emanating from downstairs. An air fresher would have been more helpful and I think there was a miscommunication over this. Despite this I would not hesitate to go back to this beautiful place. I just wish we had a longer stay there.

Rooms are of a high standard breakfast is lovely very hot food porridge made to order excellent service views are amazing of the lake ideal position for boat trip and plenty of restaurants in the town

It can be very difficult to find hotel accommodation which is wheelchair friendly. This hotel has gone the extra mile. We had a lovely room with excellent wetroom. The drop down shower seat could do with drop down grab rails at either side to make it easier and safer to use. Or maybe it might be better to acquire a shower seat which can be taken in and out for use as required. There are a number on the market. It’s only a minor detail though. I will probably bring my own when we return, and we will definitely be back. We had a three night Christmas break here. The whole event was really well organised. The hotel is beautifully appointed, spacious and comfortable. We received a warm welcome and a nice Christmas gift! The meals were excellent. All of the staff were friendly, courteous and efficient, and nothing was too much trouble. It wouldn’t be fair to single anyone out. Mention should also be made of the unseen members of the team, in the kitchen, housekeeping and maintenance, all of whom played a part in ensuring we had a lovely Christmas.
