Cosy Cumbrian Retreat.

Posted Oct 17, 2017
Pros: The atmosphere was very relaxed with the impression nothing was too much trouble.
Cons: The entrance and parking facilities.
Location: All the usual things to do when staying in the Lakes.
On arrival we were greeted very warmly and shown to our room with minimal fuss. The room was comfortable with a view overlooking a wooded area. Being unsure of the area we decided to dine in. What a great decision that was as the food is extremely good. The Knoll Country House staff have an easy going charm which puts guests at ease which makes for a pleasant stay.

Hotel south of Windermere

Posted Aug 27, 2017
Pros: Service
Cons: See above - fresh entrance and stairway
Location: Quieter location which was welcome. Lovely surroundings
Access and exit to hotel from the road are not easy - can be dangerous. Stairwell and entrance hall smelt unclean and as if it had not been thoroughly cleaned - no through air flow. This unpleasant smell adversely affected the entrance to the hotel. The bedroom was clean and very pleasant- facilities were good. Breakfast was excellent and the staff extremely good and helpful

Amazing weekend getaway

From the first point of contact with staff before our stay all the way through to checkout we could not have been more impressed by the level of service provided. The staff went above and beyond our expectations and the hotel was beautifully presented. The room was lovely and nothing that I could fault.

Beautiful hotel, quality, service & excellence

Posted Aug 16, 2017 on Hotels
Outstanding rooms and excellent customer service, we really felt like guests at somebody's lavish home. The rooms were beautifully decorated and tremendously comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome and our specific needs catered for. I was initially put off by the lack of a restaurant dinner service at the height of summer, but understand that it is not possible to run a restaurant if your guests can't commit to dinner. By substitute the platters that are made available are of a high quality and excellent value for money. The breakfast service was the highlight for me and was exceptional both in terms of choice and quality.

Peaceful haven for a perfect short break.

Posted Jul 8, 2017
Pros: Staff attentive, efficient but not overbearing. Building and rooms spacious ,clean and full of character.
Cons: Only minor thing is the fire doors are harsh closing, so loud when other guests return to rooms at night.
Location: Perfect location......Lakeside only 5 min walk away with Windermere boat rides, steam railway ,aquarium. Also bobbin mill 5 min walk from hotel.
Absolutely perfect quiet and luxurious country house hotel, situated in a fantastic spot 10 minutes walk away from Lakeside boat landing ,aquarium and steam railway. Also next to hotel is a beautiful path to Finisthwaite village and High Dam. Village of Newby Bridge was 5 min drive away with a fabulous pub/restaurant called The Swan.
