Part of a wedding party

Pros: The hotel grounds and surrounding area are stunning. The food was delicious.
Cons: The staff weren't aware of problems without guests pointing them out. All these were connected with the wedding experience as mentioned above.
Location: A central location to visit local attractions, for walking, climbing, Dove Cottage, Grasmere gingerbread shop etc. etc.
The hotel is in a prime position in a beautiful location. We didn't have time to use the spa facilities but they looked lovely. The food was delicious. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. There were some negatives which as individual guests we wouldn't have minded but as part of a wedding party we were sad to see how they upset the bridal party. A leaking roof in the room used for the marriage ceremony, not enough seats or food at the evening reception, especially as most guests had travelled a long way. People weren't being greedy with food and when it was pointed out to staff about food running out extra finally arrived after people had started leaving. Also guests had to ask for cutlery to serve the food, and sauces to accompany it. The wedding coordinator left before checking that everything was alright. Safety issue was boiling water carried to the table in chafing dishes while young children were running around. Other than that we had a lovely weekend!

Charming hotel

Pros: The character of the building inside and out. The pool and spa facilities. Bar/lounge area.
Cons: Breakfast! Good variety of options but poor quality products and small portions.Also never once got the order right! Tea was lukewarm.Not worth £17.50
Location: Location is fantastic and in the evening so quiet.Great area for walkers or just strolling around the pretty village.Central for reaching other areas!
This hotel is in a great location and full of character.The pool and spa facilities were very good.There is a comfortable lounge area situated in a conservatory near the bar and overlooking the beautiful gardens.The restaurant is also part conservatory with comfortable seating.Our room was cosy with a very good sized comfortable bed and the en-suite adequate.Parking at the hotel was excellent as not only was it secure but there were plenty of spaces available which is unusual for a Lakes hotel.
