Hotel for everyone”
Hotel currently being updated but it does not interfere with your stay. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Short walk to Bowness less than 10 minutes and facilities at hotel very good. Breakfast great options.

Beautiful Burnside !”
Tea and coffee making facilities in the room plus complimentary packets of biscuits....just what you need after a long drive.The shower was powerful and the bathroom immaculate,although we had a slight toilet flushing problem which was resolved after calling reception.Free safe in the wardrobe was re-assuring and the bed was comfy by hotel standards-the Egyptian cotton sheets were an added bonus
Possibly could do with an update if being picky although it was perfectly adequate
On arrival we found the reception staff to be efficient and professional although not over-friendly.We did ask about the entertainment that night but the receptionist couldn't tell us about the act because she had never seen it and didn't know anything about it.
Our room was clean and spacious and had everything we needed including a great view of Lake Windemere and the beautifully manicured gardens below.
Didn't eat in the hotel because it was perfectly located,only a 10 minute walk to the centre.Tried a few places to eat but our favourite was the Angel pub,a contemporary and stylish place with a great relaxed atmosphere.For breakfast we ate in the Alpine cafe where the full English was a delight!!!
Although for cheap and cheerful you can't beat the carvery for £3.50 at the pub on the lake!!!No wonder it was packed....the meats were delicious.
This hotel has free parking. Location is not bad. 5min walk to city centre. I didn't book lake view room but I could see lake from my room. The health club has a swimming pool and substantial gym equipment. Breakfast is also nice. It is a full English breakfast buffet. This hotel worth to pay a little more, than other hotels around there.
