                Nice modern design, friendly staff and generally pleasant

                Beds were a bit uncomfortable

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and helpful. This made a difference as the overall experience was disappointing.

                The ground floor ares are shabby with ripped furniture in the bar and worn and grubby furniture in the reception areas. There is a lack of atmoshpere in the restaurant - it felt more like a canteen than a relaxing restaurant. When booking half board it is not clear that there is a £22.50 allowance ( with most main courses costing not much less than this!)

                Castle Inn was exactly as described, a good location, good facilities and at a reasonable price. On arrival we recieved a free room upgrade, which is always very welcome. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were of a very good standard. Cleanliness very good throughout. The breakfast choice and quality excellent. Bar prices not too bad The leasure facilities were good and I'm sure when the refurb is done will be of a high standard. .

                The restaurant food choice was fairly limited more choice in the bar area although what we did choose to eat was good.

                We ate at the restaurant on the Sat night and the meal was superb. The waitress was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about wine. it was my husbands birthday and we were looking for a total chill out which is exactly what we got. the reception staff were also very impressive and able to advise a walk we could do when our basic criteria was not too strenuous and about an hour to an hour and half long.

                The sauna and steam room were slightly jaded

              • Single

                Quiet loaction, good selection for breakfast with fast and freindly staff

                For a single occupancy I though the price was rather expensive, being in a rural location I was unable to loacte a cash machine and therfore asked at reception if I could draw £10 either from my credit or debit for parking the next day, a simple request but was told this could not be done ?

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Very very clean and tidy,reception very good and facilitys excellent.Short drives to the likes of Grasmere and nice easy drive to find but most of all the breakfast was gorgeous.

                The only thing I thoght could have been a lot better was the evening meal,had a long wait between courses(even other couples were making comments ie "it'll be breakfast time shortly") and the meal itself was a bit of a let down. Thought bar prices were very expensive.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Clean and comfortable - nice restaurant and bar areas

                Some of the corridors are gloomy and need updating - as does the pool area - jacuzzi was not in operation and it was looking tired

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                friendly, clean, quiet, good ales, good location for other places Good menu in the restaurant Staf very friendly at breakfast time and very helpful

                bedrooms quite stuffy despite having the window open all the time -would have been a problem in the hot weather!!! Also the lack of spa treatments which we would have liked, Leisure facilities: jacuzzi not to be working and the steam room was quite dangerous as the steam was scalding and if you had put your legs in front of the jets then there could have been a nasty accident. this was reported to the staff on our leaving the leisure area.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Clean facilities and friendly staff. Large family room. Quiet location.

                Jacuzzi not working. Not enough choice of food at meal times - menu options and price range. Not enough seats in the bar to cater for guests dining. Given the cost would have expected a few more luxuries E.G. bath robes.

                10.0

                The Staff through out the hotel were very friendly and professional. The room was of a high standard and being on the ground floor it was nice to step out of the patio doors straight out into the gardens.

                7.0

                Nice room

                Attended a wedding there and Service at bar was slow. And the bar ran out of glasses and four bar staff just stood there instead of trying to collect some or source some from another bar

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                The hotel was comfortable clean and quiet. it was within easy reach of stunning scenery of lakes and mountains. it was an ideal retreat for a relaxing break

                The restaurant staff were not good and gave the impression of being inexperienced
