Taking the hotel from a 3* to a 4* offering, the arrival experience was enhanced and public areas were re- ordered. Bedrooms and bathrooms were redesigned working closely with Laura Ashley Interior Design. Previously, views of the lake were obscured by a 70’s bedroom block. By removing the link and adding a 100sqm glass reception box, as guests arrive they are now met by magnificent views of the lake. Internally, the reordering of the ground floor rooms improves the guest experience as they navigate around the building.
Following the redesign, the hotel won the Cumbria Tourism Award for Best Large Hotel of the Year.
