Rothay Manor Hotel, Ambleside
Good, not great
My expectations were higher based on the other reviews I saw. The room was really tiny with just a very small twin bed. Staff were nice, but the food was lacking. I dined in the restaurant the first night and was disappointed. The food had some odd tastes (burnt squid ink on the scallop for example). The next night I gave the lounge a chance, but the steak was over cooked. Will probably try somewhere else next time unless I don't have other options.
