After our initial disappointment of such a small room, which I asked if we could change, but was only offered one of the same size but thank you for trying!! We had a special deal of a winter warmer which included bed and breakfast for 2 nights and evening meal on the first night and warm pimms and toasted teacakes for £240 plus £20 for our dog. The lady on reception got a little muddled as she thought we had booked the hot tub for the day we arrived not the following day and she also told us there were no ferries operating whilst we were there but as it was half term they were which we luckily found out and let her know. A little niggle was i was told at booking the dog would be £10 altogether and when I bought this up at check out the lady was quite rude to me saying it was definitely £10 per night. As mentioned before a lot of the staff are foreign and they are very efficient however they have absolutely no sense of humour and appear quite surly which I am sure they are not. Our evening meal was fabulous, we were slightly put out again as when we checked in the only time we could eat was 7pm ( I enquired why we were not asked what time we would like to eat when making our booking but the receptionist said it went on what time you checked in and asked then, we checked in at 4 pm so only an hour after first time) we were hoping for 8pm so we could have a drink and the canapes in the bar so we rushed and then found we could have come later according to the restaurant manager. We ate out at the lakes bar and bistro on our second night in Keswick which was excellent and we got a taxi which was £7 each way door to door. The breakfasts at the hotel were great with a huge English .... I'm still full!
The snugs where you can have your coffee etc are very cosy with lots of fires and lamps, they are gas fires but look almost real and throw off a lot of heat.
We used the pool and sauna twice and my daughter used the gym twice all very good, not the most up to date gym but perfectly adequate (I never go in the gym!) We loved the hot tub and we also had a massage which was lovely. I like the old fashionedness of the hotel and everywhere is very clean and has a great atmosphere.
I did lose an ear ring in the bedroom and as I couldn't move the bed as the room is so compact I couldn't find it. Also through no fault of the hotel someone near our room had their tv on quite loud at 6.30am. Loads of hot water for baths/showers and the bath towels are nice and big and new. Great walks and all in all a lovely time apart from the above already mentioned
