Ticks all the boxes and more.
Perfect location, friendly and attentive individual service without a hint of fuss. Nice rooms - one had a beautiful view. And a cracking breakfast! Short walk up the nearest hill revealed one of the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen (but I should probably credit Windermere with that!) This was a working trip to show our film at the lovely nearby cinema but I will be back with my family. Thank you!
