We stayed a few nights, with two teenage children in a family room which was a good size. Separate room with TV for the children. Very clean, but furniture bit dated. Friendly staff, always available to help. We stayed for dinner on the first night, nice overall and reasonably priced. Pasta dinner was a bit bland. Great location within easy drive is Keswick due the shops. We visited the wildlife park nearby, well worth a visit. Family room price quite high.

Really loved this place. The staff are incredible! They go above and beyond and so friendly and helpful. Made me feel really welcome. My room (21) was huge! Two large windows and the views are stunning. Yes the hotel is dated but does that not happen to every hotel? The hotel industry has been hit really hard and I find some of the reviews pretty poor. The leisure facilities are superb. Don’t usually get a steam room in a hotel so really enjoyed that. Food wasn’t the best tbh. Burger had no flavour although the fish was not bad. Breakfast was good and there’s a good selection. For the price and location with the facilities it’s absolutely great. There’s a bus stop outside. You can get two buses to Keswick and one to Penrith. I walked skiddaw the first day and that’s what you are looking at when you arrive. Was beautiful from my window too. Again just want to say a massive thank you to the staff. The night porter is new and he’s great. Was so helpful and even opened the gardens for me at night so I could get shots of the stars. Also sorted me out juice quite late. Nothing was too much. Best trip I’ve had in a while
