Positive Reviews


Christmas break

Guests felt that the Waterhead is the perfect place to visit during the Christmas break. With its lovely view of the Coniston Fells, guests enjoyed a good break away from the hectic city life. It was very rejuvenating and refreshing for them. The ambience here is that of a Lakeland hotel, much loved by most of the guests. Guests could walk to the private jetty and pick up a gondola service around the lake.


Well decorated rooms; pet friendly

Guests appreciated the efforts put in to do the rooms in such a colourful way. The basic amenities were kept in mind from the guests' perspective, which was very nice on the part of the hotel staff. Some of the guests travelling with their pets were thrilled to have their pets along with them in the hotel.


Good nights' sleep and breakfast

All that the guests wanted was a good nights' sleep and a filling breakfast the next morning.  Food was excellent with an interesting menu and the guests had a lovely time. The bar area was also very nice.

Negative Reviews


Slow shower; creeking hallways

Few guests found it difficult to take a shower as the water came down in less than a trickle. The hallways were constantly creeking when someone walked up and down, which caused quite a disturbance for the guests in the rooms around.


Feeble Wi-Fi connection

The Wi-Fi connection is fine in the public areas but non-existent in the rooms. Guests had to keep coming down in order to have access to the Internet.


Saggy mattress

Mattresses in some the rooms were saggy and needed to be replaced with new firm ones. As a result the sleep quality left a lot to be desired.
