Pros: The Staff make the hotel. All very pleasant and welcoming and cannot do enough to help and make it as enjoyable as possible.
Cons: Tv in the room needs a degree in engineering to make it work. One remote is enough for most thank you.
Location: As said, in heart of Landale for walking. close also to Elterwater and Skelwith which has lovely riverside walk. Walk to Loughrigg was beautiful.
Spent a pleasant 2 day break at the hotel and would definitely visit the area again. Very proximate to National Trust pub 50 yards away if you fancy a change of venue and menu. I personally found the food pricey and the menu somewhat limited. The wine prices were exhorbitant per bottle. That said, you can,t beat the setting.

Great location, but a tad pricey

Pros: Friendly welcoming staff who were very attentive. Hotel keeps a good cellar
Cons: Hotel and bar food both overpriced, a problem all over the Lake District
Location: Perfect for outdoor activities, we were there for fellwalking and scrambling
Short break in Langdale, walking and relaxing, this is a perfect location at the foot of many of the fells. Comfortable accommodation and a welcoming atmosphere all contributed to a pleasant stay. We did feel the room was overpriced, in common with so many Lake District hotels, and the bar food was certainly short on quality given the price. A well-kept cellar partly offset this.

Pros: Location
If you like outstanding views of a beautiful valley, surrounding by mountains, in a quiet place and with great walking routes to make, this is the perfect location for you. The hotel itself is very nice and cousy. Food is great and the staff, very friendly and helpful.

hotel surcoté - rapport qualité prix moyen

Hotel bien situé à l'écart des villages et proche d'une nature superbe. Malheureusement décor un peu vieillot et ....clientèle idem! Peut être les inconditonnels du charme de la vieille angleterre apprécieront (?). A noter que nous avions une des chmabres les moins chères (propre mais petite) mais cela ne change rien à notre avis sur l'atmosphère de l'hötel. Nous avons changé d'hotel dàs la 2ème nuit (même si tout avait été règlé d'avance et non remboursable!..). Ce n'est même pas une bonne faire côté prix.
