Response from Gilpin_Lodge, Owner at Gilpin Hotel & Lake HouseResponded 2 days ago
Thank you for your review, we are delighted that you enjoyed the food and the area, but so disappointed that you didn’t like your bedroom. All of our rooms our individually designed and furnished, and sometimes it is simply a matter of personal taste.
We were lucky enough to spend our first night away as Mr and Mrs in this wonderful place.
We are regularly lake district visitors but this was our first visit to the Gilpin Hotel.
From the moment we arrived, we were in heaven.
