We found the hotel clean and tidy. The staff were OK – not overly helpful, nor unhelpful. They seemed to be lost in their own world, generally sombre. It is a relatively small hotel, in the middle of fields, but you cannot walk into those fields. There isn't anywhere to go for a walk, except if you drive away from the hotel. There is a small garden, adjacent to the hotel, but it was unkempt with overgrown shrubs and grass. The shrubs on either side of the path in the centre of the garden had engulfed the path, even in August. We were in a family room with a double bed and a single bed. We found the bed comfortable. The shower and toilet door had no latch or locking mechanism, which annoyed us. The partition walls between rooms are terrible (almost like cardboard – depending on the sounds). Depending on who you are staying with, you can find yourself in a very embarrassing situation during the night. For us, this was one of the worst aspects of the hotel. The hotel restaurant (not included in your room hire) has very little to offer for strict vegans and vegetarians. We ate there on our first night and then resorted to eating out in the nearest towns and tourist attractions (Wigton being the closest). The breakfast (included in your room hire) was good – for vegans/vegetarians and meat-eaters. The menu had enough to keep us happy (albeit, the same every morning). The availability of 'free' tea, coffee and biscuits in the room was appreciated and benefited from. 7/10 overall.
