For a pre Christmas winter weekend, the situation is fabulous. A stroll to the shops combined with a morning dog walk across the road along the river. That is before you start on the fells. The rooms are comfortable and breakfasts are fantastic. The chef really knows how to cook

Dear Bill W. Thank you for taking the time to review your visit, what i find intriguing is that based upon your review history you have stayed with us before, and so would surely be aware of our location, this has not changed for nearly 200 years. I note from your previous review you gave us 5 from 5, and so i must ask what has changed so dramatically in the last two. In that time we have renovated the restaurant, brathay lounge, bar and drawing room, reception area, 7 bedrooms and added a terrace at the front of the hotel, whilst implementing the necessary changes to be rated 4 star and knocking on the door of a 3rd AA rosette. We are right we are not L'enclume, but then is it not right to aim for the top?
