Why We Love This Hotel

  • The AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant uses local produce and offers a selection of local Cumbrian cheeses
  • The hotel holds VisitEngland Gold and Breakfast Awards, and is in a "peaceful location" (The AA) at the foot of the Great Gable and Scafell Massif mountains
  • The landscape surrounding the hotel is described as "simply spellbinding" by Lonely Planet
  • Derwentwater -- great for lake cruises and walks by the water's edge -- is a 10-minute drive away, and Ambleside Roman Fort is less than 50 minutes' drive away

The good food

It’s lovely and the food is exceptional. It’s a bit ‘decayed splendour’ needing a bit of tlc but there are some wonderful touches and it’s very clean, comfortable and friendly. Many of our fellow guests were returnees and that’s easy to understand. If you want great location, staff and superb food, this is a really lovely hotel.

The food was good but was only given the option to have soup for the first course at the deal price paid - any other choice was an extra £5!. Think this was a bit measly - there was plenty of choice for main and dessert so why create an issue with the starters?
