My wife and I and our dog required accommodation during Nov lockdown to enable us to attend immediate family funeral. Considering the circumstances we could not have been better hosted. Room was excellent and Manager prepared evening meals and breakfast to to collect to eat in our room. Even the dog was treated to a take-away sausage. Our sincere thanks for first rate customer service in very difficult times, and for looking after us in what was a sad visit to the area. We look forward to returning soon for happier reasons and enjoying a meal and drink in the lovely appointed bar area. Our dog can't wait to return and looked disappointed with his meal back at home today!!!

Such a great find for a dog friendly hotel. The annex rooms were perfect and the bed was huge and super comfy with a great shower (dont have to fiddle to find the correct temperature which is good,nice and hot). We stayed 3 nights, ate there two nights and the food was really nice great pie; the other night we ate at bower house inn which was amazing and only down the road. The breakfast was faultless and my dog was super impressed with the sausage every morning. Staff were super friendly and welcoming. This hotel is also a great location for wast water and scafell which is only down the road. We will definitely be back, thank you!

We stayed here for a week at the beginning of October and we were sop glad we dod. Richard, Trish, Joanne, Lisa and all the housekeeping staff were a delight to be around. Very friendly and the dogs came first in their book! Each morning the dogs received breakfast before we did! Superb stay in the annexe block, clean and warm rooms, perfect for our visit to Western Cumbria. The food in the bar in the evenings tased good and we ate there most nights because it was so good. Loved the room, the stay, the hospitality, the staff, the food, everything. If you are thinking of staying and wondering if this is the one, let me tell you - it is!!

As a building from the 1600’s the interior has been preserved as best as possible and provides copious amounts of character, the manager and staff are welcoming and full of friendly chat. The beer garden in the sun is one of the best I’ve seen to date and I’ve seen a fair few! We stayed in room 5 on the top floor, the rooms were spotless, modernised but still retaining those beautiful wooden beams. One morning I woke up to see a figure in the bathroom doorway at 2am watching over me and my partner sleeping, I was made aware in the morning that this could either be the priest or the Monk that frequent some guests stays in these rooms. Never believed in this sort of thing. Still put it down to an over active imagination, even though I had no idea the place was “haunted” Wonderful stay, would go back 100%

We stayed at this hotel just as lockdown happened. I think we were the last guests before this happened! Staff were great and communication was clear throughout. The food at the hotel was just perfect. Both the evening meal and the breakfast. My dog loved the staff too! The dog friendly rooms are great and the fact the dog can be with us while eating helped our stay be smooth. Hoping we can go back in the near future.
