Stayed here for a friends birthday as a surprise. The staff here were amazing and accommodated all our requests to decorate the room and were in on the surprise. The room was spotlessly clean and modern and breakfast the next day was tasty! Thank you to everyone that helped make our stay memorable!! We will definitely be back

Having read the reviews and the fact the Hotel has had a recent refurbishment, we decided to stay here during our trip to the Lakes. The staff were friendly, the room was of a good size. There were a few stains on the carpet which could have had more attention to, whilst cleaning. The bed and pillows were incredible, so so comfy and a really good size bed. Lucky it was very quiet during our midweek stay because we were situated next door to the lift, which could have been quite noisy during busy periods. Location was great, just down the hill to Bowness. Staffing levels during breakfast was minimal, and very basic. Overall not a bad stay

Rude receptionist on the phone and overpriced rooms!!! Was quoted £260 for a small double dog room for the next day!!! When I queeried that it was a lot cheaper on booking. Com she was very unhelpful and put me on hold, then put the phone down on me!! When I tried to ring back there was no answer!!! I was not rude on the phone and had simply just asked why there was a vast difference in price. I had phoned the hotel and not booked online as we have a dog and I like to make sure that they know in advance.

First time to the lakes and opted for the Ro as it seemed one of the more modern hotels. Amazing location, rooms were clean and beautiful. Couldn’t of done more for us. We opted for the dinner and breakfast package, the food was beautiful see picture! I can’t wait to come back. Only downside is not many rooms have baths however not a fan of showers, the shower in our room was amazing!
