Could not access the WiFi internet
The building and location were excellent, as were all the staff that we came into contact with. If in that area again I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Unfortunately the meals, especially the dinner which we had on the first night, let the hotel down. The quality of the food did not meet expectations and we ate out for the remainder of our stay..
We liked the location, the countryside is breathtaking. The room was very clean and the breakfast was substantial. The dining room staff were very obliging but the reception staff were a bit offhand.
The room asked for was a twin but it contained a double bed which in all fairness was converted to a twin but one of the beds had a single duvet on whereas the other one had the original double (or king size) duvet which made it most uncomfortable
Staff was excellent and extremely helpful and friendly. Bar and restaurant services and quality of food was great. Fabulous view - mountaines, lake. I just loved it!
location was great, comfortable hotel, ideal position near to the centre of Coniston
The setting was beautiful and close enough to the centre of Coniston to be accessible; but far enough away to not feel right in the village itself. All of the staff we met were friendly and helpful.
The noise from the neighbouring bathrooms was very, very disappointing. Every time they ran the cold water or flushed the toilet the noise in our bedroom was ridiculously loud. This affected a 'good nights sleep' as someone using the facilities in their room meant we were woken up in ours. This did put a dampener on our stay and would mean if I was looking for somewhere to stay it is unlikley I would want to return here for this reason alone. When you are doing a lot of walking sleep is very important and to have it disturbed in this was was disappointing.
Almost everything. It's ranked as 2 stars, but I don't know why. You can get 4 star quality for 2 star price.
Low water pressure of the shower, but could stand it because the temperature was stable and bathroom itself was beautifully maintained.
The food was good, The reception staff, and restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful
There was not adequate storage space in our room, and coat hooks on doors would have been helpful.
I had some slight doubts about the hotel after reading other comments which said that it was shabby and in need of some refurbishment, but was very pleasently suprised to find our room looked as if it had just been "done up". This is a big Victorian house but our room was light, modern and very comfortable. The location is ideal - wonderful views of the lake and mountains and a couple of minutes walk brings you into the centre of Coniston where there are tea shops, cafes, and several excellent pubs serving good food and beer. The staff at the hotel are all very friendly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. I can't recommend the Waterhead hotel enough! My wife and I will be going back again - and soon I hope!
The weather, views, location & pets being allowed. The hotel staff were lovely.
Excellent location by the lake and mountains. Welcoming and attentive staff. Wide choice on breakfast menu
Beds could have been more comfortable/ bigger.
Staff very welcoming and helpful, food wonderful, location could not be better. will return.
the staff who made effort to make all family and stay comfortable .
Food Excellent, View from dining room of the Old Man lovely. Excellent location for the Old Man, Dow Crag and Hawkshead.
Room 12 needed a coat of paint to make it brighter/lighter. Cigarette ends left outside in water by the doorway in the bar area and rubbish not removed from the front doorway (a green plastic bag remained there through out our stay in the rubbish receptical)
Excellent value for money. Hotel receptionist was very friendly. Rooms were well equipped, clean and spacious. Breakfast was good. Set right next to the lake beautiful location
