We stayed here for one night on Easter Sunday, arriving around 5pm and leaving the next morning about 9:30am. We were a family of 4 (in one room) plus one adult (in a single room) and wanted to get a glimpse of the Lake District. It was somewhat difficult to find a b&b that allowed young children to stay! This...

My wife and I went to the Lake District for a long weekend as it was our ruby wedding anniversary. We picked this hotel from a few we looked at and WOW we certainly was not disappointed from the moment we arrived we found the staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean with not only a...

If you are planning a nice quiet weekend away from it all do not book here, it is right by a very busy dual carriageway road and the noise of the traffic is very disturbing - I had come to the Lakes to get away from all of that! Other than that the Inn was good. Wifi did not work...

I am sorry that this was such a disappointment for you. We are next to a main road but this is not a dual carriageway and by 7.00 at night becomes quiet. But if this is such a difficulty, rooms to the rear of the hotel are completely quiet and can be requested. The well double glazed rooms to the...

My husband and I chose to go away for a few days to celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary and decided on this country inn. We are so glad we did. We were greeted with such friendliness and were shown around the hotel before being shown to our room, which was very clean and perfectly equipped with everything we could need....

We booked Middle Ruddings for a girls weekend to do a walk. We were able to access our room really early and nothing was a problem. The staff are warm, welcoming and accommodating, nothing is too much trouble and all done with a smile. Great location, clean room and bathroom, loads of hot water for that well earned bath post...

My husband and I ate here on Thursday evening, we booked prior to attending to ensure their was availability. When we arrived there was only one member of staff about, she took our drinks order and asked us to sit in the bar and look at a menu until other staff members materialised. We were left there approximately 20-25 minutes...

Booked 4 nights at short notice and were really pleased we did. Couldn't fault anything. We got a very warm welcome when we arrived, had a quick tour of the inn and were then shown to our very comfortable room. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. There is a good bar area, and also a very spacious guest...

We stayed here for 4 nights in February. We were made to feel very welcome with old fashioned curtesy which was very refreshing in this day and age. Nothing was too much trouble and although the only veg my husband eats is peas and sweet corn (which were not on the menu) - the manager cooked some especially for him....

Thankyou so much for your kind review, we are pleased that you appreciate our traditional approach, we do realise it`s not everyone`s cup of tea but those people probably don`t realise that our "old fashioned furniture" is genuinely antique, a result of having a passion for quality and style! So very glad you enjoyed yourselves and we do hope you...

Can't fault the service or the gin and beer. Staff very polite and made us feel very welcome. Food reasonably priced however it seemed the roast was heated up from yesterday. The chips and onion rings from a packet and veg was soggy. It was a shame as I was looking forward to ordering pudding but left after the main...

Obviously we are extremely sorry that your meal was below standard. It is rare for our vegetables to be soggy as we tend to serve them lightly cooked. I have passed this review to the chief who apologises for this very rare slip. As regards the onion rings we are in fact moving over to homemade this week in line...
