          Location

          First Room I was checked into was not serviced from the night before. I then got a different room which was in poor condition.

          The staff overall were polite and attentive but the staff in the bar/restaurant were excellent giving a very relaxed but professional atmosphere.

          Its a problem my wife and I find in most hotels - the pillows are too hard.

        • Older travelers

          It was very peaceful in the grounds, with the river Barrow just at the bottom of the gardens - it just made the weekend for my fishing husband. The staff were very helpful especially Ashley.

          We never got a wink of sleep because the people in the room beside us had a party. Full of people shouting and screaming from 3 in the morning til 7 am. When I rang reception to complain they sent some one up and things quietened down for half an hour before starting again. When I complained next morning when paying my bill all the receptionist said was its terrible these people have no consideration. Il never stay there again

          It was handy to the college for our sons Graduation. Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff.

          Hotels should have a Spa/Swimming Pool/Leisure facilities. Very old fashioned. Pillows were too hard. Sheets were too rough - Comfort is all about softness PLEASE. Mattresses were too hard - It wouldn't cost much to put foam 'toppers' on the mattresses - more up to date. TV's were ridiculously too small.

          good parking facilities, friendly reception. very good value for money. we were at a wedding dinner in the hotel, and unlike many other hotels on such an occasion, they kept their room rates very reasonable

        • Older travelers

          We were at the Dolman for a family wedding. The reception was excellent.for us as guests Our booking in was seamless, our room was easy to find and was what we had asked for. I had asked for a walk in shower which was excellent. We both have a bit of arthritis and find getting into the bath somewhat difficult. Although the room was classed as a room suitable for a disabled person if that person was in a wheelchair there was very little room to manoeuvre the wheelchair. Apart from that the room was satisfactory, clean, all lights working, plenty of towels and showerchair in the bathroom. There were two beds a single and a double. Break was self-service and was very satisfactory.

          Our bedroom looked out on to a wall despite most other rooms having beautiful views of the magnificent grounds
