    Fabulous

    We were upgraded to a room with a spectacular view of the lake.

    Ice on the uphill approach to the car park was not treated until mid-afternoon. There was evidence that earlier drivers had great difficulty with the surface.

    Fabulous

    All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and very pleasant and we had a nice view of the Lake from our window. The restaurant food was excellent and the service in the restaurant was second to none. All in all it was a fantastic 3 day stay and we will definately be visiting again.

    Clean, well equipped rooms.

    I booked a double room as part of 15th Wedding anniversary celebration. After a few glasses of champagne in the bar, we retired to our room at 11pm to find that there were two twin beds pushed together.. spoilt the moment and when I pointed it out to Reception in the morning, she didnt seem to believe me! A reluctant sorry, was all I got.

    Staff were a bunch of idiots, with a few exceptions. I thought the customer was king until I stayed with you. Get rid of them. You have ruined a beautiful place by appalling recruitments.

    Superb

    The setting was beautiful, staff courteous and attentive, but above all, comfortable beds and extremely good food.

    Someone elses bloodstains on the bedspread.

    We loved the peace and tranquility of Leeming House. Our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were really friendly and welcoming too. Food and ambience of the dining room was amazing! Views and surroundings of the hotel were really beautiful. We came home feeling relaxed and refreshed with lovely memories and photographs.

    Location is very good. There are two nice drawing rooms, a glass corridor and restaurant. A garden around hotel is very nice.

    We had significant issues at the reception

    Fabulous

    The room

    The dining experience. No local foods on offer and when we asked why the staff were less than helpful. We do not expect to go to a lakeland hotel and get highland food and californian port. Do you server highland food in cyprus as this is what the staff implied

  • 7.4
    Very good

    not enough seats in the restaurant so we had to order room service where as we would have prefered to dine in the restaurant,

    Exclusive

    The staff were superb, so much so that they were a source of wonder. They were always cheerful and prepared to spend time and take care making sure we had a perfect stay. Anna and Moses, the receptionists were very efficient and welcoming. The restaurant ran like clockwork with a calm and relaxing atmosphere, due to the exceptional staff working like a well oiled machine. The breakfast was a generous buffet of everything you could think of with a cooked breakfast of exactly what each person wanted. We ate with wonderful views over the lake. The food at dinner was also delicious. Our room was beautiful with a view of trees and the lake. It was clean, warm and comfortable.

    The bar prices were a little discouraging but each drink was served with extra care and the lounges were an excellent place to lounge so maybe that makes up for it!
