We booked a suite which had a sitting area with television and a separate bedroom with a comfortable bed. The sitting area was quite homely - more like your living room than somewhere you perch gingerly on the edge of the chairs for fear of breaking something. The walk-in shower was a plus as I prefer these, although there was a bath as well. Wifi free and although there was a problem with it at one point, this was quickly sorted. We had dinner there one night - three courses to order plus canapes, amuse bouche and pre-dessert (none of which we were expecting), so we didn't end up hungry even though the individual courses aren't huge portions. I'm vegetarian and the staff quietly ensured the canapes and amuse bouche were suitable, without making any fuss. The LBV port with dessert was superb. The breakfast was amazing and possibly the highlight. There is a buffet of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, pastries etc etc, toast to order and the most amazing range of cooked options. I can recommend the truffled mushrooms - lovely. Ambleside is a ten minute walk. Certainly somewhere we will consider on our next visit to the area. The only thing which spoiled it (slightly) was a yapping dog in a neighbouring room although this is of course the fault of the dog's owner, not the hotel (or the dog). Collapse

Recently returned from a weekend stay, hotel is under new ownership and under going a series of renovations, with the restaurant and brathay lounge alreaady being made over, and one bedroom as well, but the biggest change is the food which was amazing. Enjoyed a fabulous 3 course dinner with canapes, homemade bread, amuse bouche and pre-dessert all inlcuded in the price, everything we tasted was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The service from all the staff was excellent. The bedroom was very clean, with moulton brown toiletries and eygptian cotton linen, super fluffy towels and a great selection of teas, coffees etc. Highly recommended throughout, will definatley be returning, hopefully very soon.

Just spent a lovely weekend at this old favourite. An old favourite with a new look. Restaurant has had a make over but the food which was good before is now top notch. Breakfast is to order and silver service. Very classy. The evening menu in the formal restaurant is the best I have seen in the area. The stone bass and octopus was stunning and filling. The cheese board was service at the right (room) temperature and was a beautiful selection with home made crackers that were amazing. Highly recommend the RM. the new onward are investing on improving an already great destination. Collapse

Stayed here for three nights as a centre for some cycling rides around Lakes Windlemere and Coniston. Made very welcome. Comfortable spacious room. Lots of pleasant areas to sit in. Excellent dining experience, top class food. Would thoroughly recommend the Stone Bass served with octopus, and the chocolate dome is an amazing experience! Collapse

We were pleased to find that our memory of the hotel had been correct and that its overall high standards had been maintained, with the dining room and other rooms enhanced by refurbishment. We had booked a Classic room for dinner, bed and breakfast and our room was spacious, clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Dining was a very pleasurable experience with canapes, amuse bouches and soup in addition to ordered courses, all served by charming and attentive staff. One of the dinner courses we had was Tasting and Ageing of Beef incorporating different beef elements and, if I had to find a criticism, I would say the veal tartare needed its flavour enhancing, but overall, the dish was interesting and delicious. Breakfast did not disappoint and I had a good Florentine Eggs Benedict using their own home grown spinach. If you are booking here, it may be a good idea to check if they have an offer of a substantial discount for a two/three night stay as we did not know about this and might have stayed two nights, had we been made aware of this when booking.
