Fantastic little gem in the middle of the Lake District, the Daffodil Hotel benefits from an amazing view. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, and the spa facility is nothing to sneeze at. The breakfast consists of a buffet full English Breakfast, a choice of pastries and cereals/juices. A few more options are available "a la carte". Taste-wise, the breakfast is great, however on the 4 breakfasts we had there, the plates and cups were slightly dirty, with leftover food. Could be wise to invest in a new dishwasher system.

Very good

Staff were great without exception, the small issues that we had were dealt with politely and promptly. Dinner and lunch were good but on the expensive side, staff in the dining room were very efficient. Loved the room and the shower was amazing, nice to stay somewhere where everything worked as it should have and décor was pristine. Spa facilities included in price which was great, would definitely stay again - what a location!
