An enjoyable midweek break

The Inn on the Lake is a modern hotel in a beautiful rural setting.

Though close to the M2/A2, its public rooms and the bedrooms ("superior") overlooking the lake are free of traffic noise, comfortable and well equipped. The hotel's best assets are its staff - the receptionists could not have been more helpful, and the restaurant staff were well rained and attentive. Downsides: - it took a long time to replace a reading lamp bulb (12 hours!) and the trouser press didn't work. Also the billing system is rather seventies - most hotels these days only require a room number and a signed bill for bar and restaurant purchases, checking the occupant electronically. At the Inn, producing a large pink identity card as well is rigidly required.

Inn on the Lake Hotel

This hotel was sadly run down and in some places dirty except for the room itself.

Smokers were allowed to smoke right outside the entrance to the hotel (inn) and therefore the smell of smoke was apparent everywhere in the lobby area drifting to the restaurant area. Someone was already in the room we were given a key to so this was embarrassing to say the least as I went into the room. For this oversight, that meant about 20 minutes wasted in getting another room allocated. The room offered had a large metal bunk bed in it which was horrible. This was because it was a family room not the room I booked. I thought having a view over the lake would be nice, but that was spoilt too by people being able to look over the fence and into the windows so you had no privacy. There was a wedding at the hotel (inn) which is probably why I had to accept the horrible replacement room, The swearing, smoking and children running around and nearly going outside onto the A2 was just too much. The breakfast was acceptable. There was not much to smile about on this visit, but the staff were lovely and the evening meal that we paid extra for was extremely nice. I will of course not be going back to the Inn on the Lake.

Good value

Very good value for 1 nights stay The only thing I would say is the website doesn't tell you that the cheap price is for rooms on motorway side of hotel and you cannot gain access to the side of lake as shown on pictures unless you book premier rooms at a higher cost.

Unfortunately those rooms were fully booked. Nevertheless still very good value and a good breakfast included in the price. Would definitely stay again for a night.

Inn on the Lake Hotel

Booked a double room to find a twin room, changed room, to find another twin but told beds could be zipped together & would be done when we went out.

This was done. Room very hot. Needs a good reburbishment & update. Breakfast not brilliant bland & dry.

Comfortable stay with lovely view of the lake. Needs updating but good value

Only stayed the one night.

Room 46 on 2nd floor. Lovely view of lakes. TV. Comfortable beds. Clean bathroom. Bath a little dodgy stepping into for a shower as no handles to hold onto and even though I had bath mat down it was a bit slippery as bath quite deep. However clean and good shower. Room dated and tired looking. Old fashioned pine furniture. But you really cant quibble at £52 for the night. I would stay again.

Short Stay

The room was very comfortable and spacious, with all you would need.

Most of the staff were friendly and accommodating. We did not spend much time actually in the hotel as we were sight seeing in the area. The one bar meal we had was ok but the breakfasts were very good.
