A comfortable three night stay with my partner and dog. All made to feel very welcome. Room large and airy with stunning views towards the west. Decor a little tired in places but adequate overall. Staff helpful and hardworking but a little overstretched at breakfast during peak times. Breakfast generally good but some shortages of essentials such as porridge, scotch scones and marmalade! Overall a pleasant experience, we would be happy to return in the future.
We stayed at Briery Wood on the last stage of our holiday . The receptionist on our arrival was very pleasant and helpful, we checked in quite quickly and were shown all the lounges available to sit in before being taken to our room. There is no lift in this hotel , but there is only one real flight of stairs plus a couple of steps here and there.
The room was very clean, well equipped with fresh towels , certain toiletries and there was tea and coffee making facilities all of which were readily topped up every morning or as and when requested.
Having only initially booked just a room we decided to upgrade to include breakfast which was no problem.
The only area where I felt there was room for improvement is that should you require an evening meal then you have to have the dinner menu which is 3 courses plus mints. If you're like myself and not a big eater this was definitely a deciding factor in us not having the evening meal there.
But on the whole our stay was excellent and everyone was very friendly.
We enjoyed three great days in the lakes. The evening meal in the restaurant exceeded our highest expectations and the food was excellent. The Brasserie food was good but its well worth spending more for the quality and experience we had in the restaurant, although it is a bit formal for some. We loved the spa and two of us enjoyed a well earned massage after a long walk. The rooms were spacious and full of character and were well maintained and clean. The staff were very helpful and attentive and accommodating. We will definitely be returning.
