Stayed here over New Year and it was fantastic. The staff were consistently friendly and helpful and accommodation excellent. The place was really festively decorated and the meal served on New Years Eve was exceptional - all far better than some higher star rated hotels I've been in for the same period and for a fraction of the cost that...

You couldn't ask for a better location, walk right from the door to some of the best hills and views in the area. The staff were great (helpful and very friendly), the food very good, rooms spotless. Nice little bar area. Perfect to relax after a good walk. Nothing else was required, perfect.

Accommodation was simple and quite basic (no tv for example) but exceptionally clean and really friendly staff. Hotel is perfectly suited for exploring Borrowdale with lots of fantastic walks in the area. We stayed on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis and the food was excellent and pretty good value for money.
