Perfect location for all of the Windermere attractions. Staff were excellent. The only down side was that we had additional parking £12 a night to pay for that we were not expecting. I think this should be noted somewhere so you know before you book.

Fantastic hotel, excellent staff, fabulous service and great location. Hotel restaurants provide brilliant dining options with outstanding menu options and you won’t be disappointed when the food arrives! We took our 2 dogs & had a pet friendly room with dog beds provided and plenty of biscuits! but rooms kept to a great standard with no signs of wear/tear or previous 4 legged occupants!

Lovely food and great location on the outskirts of Bowness. Very nice decor and great service. Rooms are a good size. Nice to have a massive bath to soak in after a long walk!
