Property conditions & facilities

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This was a disappointing stay. On arrival we were told that had made a mistake with the booking and we had been given a twin room not a double. No apology or offer to even push the twin beds together. After a long day hiking in the Lakes we were ready for some food. The hotel advertises restaurant and bar. The restaurant was fully booked already. The bar ran a first come first served system in two sittings 6pm and 8pm. It was 7pm, we were told by reception to speak to bar staff, bar staff seemed very pessimistic about our chances of getting food at 8pm. Basically we had to take our chances in the free for all. Not the relaxing night we had hoped for. Ended up driving back to Keswick for food. The twin room was not clean, see photo of headboard. Positives... lovely location and breakfast was very nice. I would not stay here again and it certainly is not worth the price tag.
