Good Hotel Guide Review
‘In a beautiful setting at the tip of Windermere, overlooking the River Leven,’ this family-friendly hotel unveiled an extension in 2022. Along with a spa there are 26 new bedrooms with bold patterned wallpaper, oversized headboards, and minibar. Other rooms are classed ‘lovely’ and ‘fabulous’; loft suites have an electric log-burner, an in-room bath, a super-king bed with pop-up TV. Our inspectors had lunch in the pub, which had ‘soft-furnished chairs, beautiful reclaimed wood flooring, floral-print wallpaper'. The food was pricy, and, while ‘soup of the day was definitely the winner’, beef and ale pie was ‘disappointing’, although ‘redeemed by a rich gravy’. Coffee, cakes, panini and Buddha bowls are served in ‘a delightful café with a baby-pink retro coffee machine.’
