I thought the hotel & staff were quite disappointing. We had terrible food and no one seemed to care about satisfying the clients.

Fabulous setting and location. The Wordsworth hotel and spa was fantastic. The customer service was if the highest standards with polite, engaging and supportive staff throughout our stay. All Covid guidelines and restrictions were clear and concise which were followed. The room was great and use of the pool and spa was brilliant. The only recommendations I would provide is the room was not cleaned after day one. They left clean towels at the door. Also they posted the bill under the door on leaving. Perhaps a better system should be introduced. But on the whole cannot complain. Would highly recommend and would certainly stay again. Keep up the great work. P.s visit the Wordsworth gingerbread!!!

Really pleasant hotel in Lake Dustrict
Beautiful hotel. The room was large & comfortable; conservatory was spacious and welcoming for drinks and restaurant was very good. We arrived early and receptionist was not really helpful but this did not deter from a very pleasant stay. Hotel is conveniently located on main road through the small village. We had a wonderful stay and would certainly return.
