Clean and friendly but needs updating
Cosy Inn where we had a meal by the open fire. Friendly and welcoming staff. We shared a twin room with sink. Clean and tidy, but the mattress was hard so when I woke in the night I found it hard to get comfortable. A separate wifi code was given for the room, but no signal could be picked up. I couldn't get the shower to heat up, but realised afterwards that maybe the electric pull cord for the bathroom shower served that shower too. I used the bathroom shower which was fine.

overnight getaway
The staff were lovely and I think that this was the first time EVER we were shown the fire exit on arrival. The food was tasty but a little over priced for 'pub grub'. The room was ok, but the bed was uncomfortable. Breakfast was hot and delicious.

Close to Kendal
Amazing Service, great location and very tasty evening meal and breakfast. The property is very old, so the condition is not great! Value for money at only £60 though.

Basic room, smell in room, taken payment twice!
There is no bathroom / WC in the room, read the small print. The room is basic and smell, so we have to open the window to air. We have paid through, the staff insist it wasn't paid. We have to pay again and later discovered payment already taken from my credit card. Called to resolve the issue as no one pick up the call in the hotel. So not very impressed about this. Good air quality outside and some good view.
