    The outside belies the wonderful interior. Staff wonderful. Food delicious. Great value for money. No hidden extras. Perfect location for Lake District Tour.

    Honestly - nothing we didn't love.

    The hotel provided an ideal setting for a relaxing & comfortable stay. In addition the excellent service provided by staff & facilities offered by the hotel will encourage me & others to come back time & time again.

    Good

    Impressive reception/lounge area next to the bar which was comfortable to have a glass of your favourite. We travelled from Scotland on the May holiday weekend and the weather was glorious. Nice outside elevated terrace weather permitting. If you are prepared to travel the thirty minutes to the various locations in the lakes this is an ideal location and very close to the motorway for your journey home, but there is no intrusive noise from the motorway. Enjoy!

    Bedroom was clean but decor a bit tired with peeling coverings.

    My husband and I like to stay at the north lakes hotel because it is a wonderful halfway point when we are travelling down south and we know we will be given first class service. We also enjoy the homely log fires etc. This Hotel gives us everything we expect from a Hotel.

    On arrival we sometimes feel that some areas are fully occupied with business people on mobiles and computers treating these areas as they would an office.

    The staff were extremely helpful, particularly at check in. The family room was wondereful - the children loved the bunk beds, the dressing gowns and the special biscuits!

    Very good

    The location was excellent. The room was very comfortable. The free internet was good and would attract business people

    Breakfast was expensive at an extra £17.

    From arrival to departure the staff were fantastic nothing was to much trouble. Our room was beautiful clean and the bed was so comfy that we could have happily done a " John & Yoko " and stayed in it all weekend. Food and service were 1st class infact there was nothing we could fault congratulations are well in order for everything we will certanly visit not just this hotel again but some of you others to. Thank you for help making this a time for us to remember in the future.

    Staff were great and very accommodating.

    Really overpriced, £140 for a motel style room, a little peeling in places. The pool was overtaken by kids. The bar was not that comfortable as the conservatory was being used by a wedding. Middling wine cost an outrageous £7 for a 175ml glass. Food in the restaurant was ok. Steak overcooked and rather thin though. Queued to pay the bill behind people who were complaining about their room. I guess overcharging can make people very sensitive to small issues.

    When we arrived at North Lakes my wife tripped in the car park ( her own fault ) the staff response was excellent with full first aiders at the scene within seconds, The rest of our stay was first class an excellent hotel

    Very good

    Travelling on my own, the gym is a great attraction

    The prices are high. £12 for breakast and £18 for a bar meal is expensive. I will search around because of this on my next visit to Penrith

    Good

    Food was excellent -staff in the dining room very good - dining room manager excellent too + a credit to the Hotel Room comfortable and very clean - cleaning staff very friendly and polite

    Bar very poorly run given the wrong drink -staff talking instead of listening had to queue for 8-9 minutes to be served ( in a 4* hotel? ) staff talking to each other when people at the bar plaster off the wall in the bar +clean-up starting at 9.15pm on a saturday when there were people still in the bar mess up with billing on departure - clear that in the reception left hand unaware of the right hands actions ( was sorted eventually )

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the large open fires

    Restaurant service tended to forget to take orders or take their time over bringing courses. Food overpriced. Only a small change in the daily choice. Why do vegetables cost extra

    It was in a convenient location and a reasonable price. I felt comfortable staying there with my 5 yr old daughter.

    The bathroom was a little tired.
