Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Beautiful views’ of the Borrowdale valley and fells – and the ‘lovely walks’ to go with them – surround this ‘enjoyable hotel’ near Derwent Water. Jamie Adamson and Jane Cleary manage a team of ‘friendly, accommodating and professional staff’, report Guide correspondents this year. Parasols open on the ‘pretty terrace’ in sunshine; inside the ‘smart, well-kept’ former country house, sofas are gathered around the fireplace in the lounge. ‘Some might consider the decor a little old-fashioned in parts’, but the recently renovated oak and slate bar is ‘very “boutique hotel”’ – and just the spot for sampling local gin. Individually styled bedrooms in varying sizes overlook countryside or garden. ‘Our room was of a good size, with a brand-new bathroom.’ Ask for a window seat at dinner, all the better to soak up the ‘superb setting’ over chef Noel Breaks’s ‘innovative, delicious’ dishes. ‘The food was a major delight, with some of the best puddings we’ve ever eaten.’ Cumbrian produce is showcased: sample, perhaps, asparagus, sourdough, crispy egg yolk, mushroom ketchup; duck, pickled turnip, spelt, artichoke, candied endive. ‘Breakfast was very good, too.’ (Sarah Tier)

Guest comments

'We enjoyed it very much. The setting is beautiful. There are many lovely walks nearby. The manager and staff are excellent - very friendly and very professional. Our room was a good size, with a brand new bathroom. The hotel in general was smart, clean and in a good state of repair. Some of the decor might be considered by some to be a litt fashioned. But, the bar has recently been renovated and is very "boutique hotel". A major delight was the food. The menu offered a good variety of choices; the dishes were innovative and delicious. The home made bread was very good too. And they did a very good breakfast. ' - Trevor & Sarah Beeton - September, 2016
