8.0 Very Good
Pros:Nice location not far from facilities
A
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:The bed was huge and so comfortable. The view from our room 105 of Lake Grasmere was stunning. The cleanliness of the rooms was impeccable. Great breakfast, again with a view. Staff were genuine and friendly.
Cons:I wanted an hours treatment in the spa but there was no availability, which was really disappointing, so book immediately when you book your stay. The spa is quite small, although very nice. It's a shame there are no outdoor hot tubs so the customers can appreciate the amazing views.
