Peaceful, friendly and beautiful.

Wonderfully located hotel in the Lakes.

Easy to find with friendly helpful staff. Located within easy reach of all the attractions. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Food was excellent and good value and the bar and seating areas cosy and full of charm. Highly recommended for a weekend or even longer.

On entering the bedroom, we noticed the floor sloped not a little bit but quite a lot, I realise that these are old premises but it made walking about a bit awkward.

The rooms were a bit small and the bathroom although clean was small also.

Decent place to stay

Located in midst of mountains and near to beautiful lake, we have enjoyed our stay and food was top notch.

We will book again if we visit lake ditrict.

Perfectly adequate for a break in a period property at a reasonable price Wifi was disappointing though

Could be good with some upkeep

This hotel is set in wonderful surroundings and it was great to be in the countryside and have a window to look out on a field, stone wall and see House Martins feeding daily.

The bus between Keswick and Kendal stops at the door every half hr. Very easy access to Keswick. While the inn is very old, and has a great reputation in the past, it was in need of some basic regular maintenance and the meals were disappointing. The staff were wonderful, working in difficult conditions ( e.g. The office, computer in bar) and try as they could, could not get rid of the smell in my room - pets are allowed - and were waiting for maintenance to be approved. Phone and internet access were extremely intermittent.

We will return!

The staff were very welcoming and friendly.

Our room was clean although maybe a little on the small side.

We ate twice in the bar and the food was excellent. We were very impressed with the breakfast menu and service. All in all it was excellent value for money and we will definitely stay again when we visit the Lakes.
