Inn on the lake 08/11/19

Neil C, Lancashire, stayed: November 2019

The hotel is in a lovely location, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent but the portion size was a bit small for a 3 course meal, I d go for the 5 course next time. The only issue I have with the hotel is the room. We were in room 23. The main issue was the bathroom, the bath had not been cleaned ( there were short curly hairs all over the bottom, yuk) and the shower was not fitted to the wall very well and would not turn off easily. Also the room was very hot all night, even though we had turned the radiator off.

Wedding anniversary treat

LB, South Yorkshire, stayed: October 2019

We booked for two nights with a Lakeland Luxury voucher which we added to.
The setting is stunning with incredible views across the lake and fells. Our room was fine and the staff were very friendly.
We did have problems due to my husband's dietary requirements, which had not been communicated to the kitchen. However, I would like to leave a positive review due to the way our complaint was handled. The duty manager, Nigel, was very apologetic, did not make excuses and upgraded us to the bridal suite and credited us 40 to spend at the hotel. The meal on the second night and breakfast on our final morning were superb. The views from the bridal suite were spectacular!
We ended up having a wonderful stay and a very memorable anniversary.
Thank you.

Wonderful stay

PM, South Yorkshire, stayed: September 2019

Excellent hotel and facilities. Everything was well organised, nothing too much trouble.

The staff always had a welcoming smile, were very polite and attentive without being overbearing.

It's a pity the hotel couldn't control the rainy weather!!!! It didn't spoil the hotel stay. Looking forward to returning.
