Why We Love It

  • 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 location is great for walking and the rooms are very nicely renovated and dog friendly. The restaurant was very nice but. after a hard days walking we preferred the more relaxed atmosphere of the riverside bar for food and drink.

I was stung for £50 by the hotel management because I mistakenly booked the wrong dates and was forced to pay to change them. I can understand being charged if they were going to lose out in some way ie, changing the length of stay or moving to a more expensive day such as a saturday but they were getting the same out of us so why charge £50. I wouldve cancelled it out of principal but that would mean being charged the full amount which I guess is why they decided to have my pants down.
