A great pub stay
A very comfortable stay, this is a very friendly, welcoming country pub. Staff were great, room was comfortable and food was good. And a special thanks to Sam for coming in early and cooking my breakfast.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Never again
Although carrying a suitcase on my arrival the team member who greeted questioned I had a booking. I had to get my reservation up on my phone for her. I was told nobody was staying in the hotel tonight so I could have any room. (No surprise there not the most desirable place to stay) I was shown to room 2. The welcome was poor to say the least. The room was basic which is a generous description for it. I had a burger which was like leather I asked for it without relish this request was ignored.

Excellent base for exploring surrounding area.
Located in quiet village on edge of Lake District we were given a warm welcome on arrival. All staff very friendly and efficient. Substantial good quality breakfast and evening meal. Comfortable room. Excellent base for exploring surrounding area but away from the crowds. Would highly recommend.
