Stayed at his hotel for two nights in conjunction with one of those internet deals. Hotel was excellent. The room was of reasonable size, well appointed, clean and with a view across the estuary. Bar and restaurant were good for breakfast, dinner, bar snacks and real ale. The staff were friendly and efficient. The highlight though was the village of Ravenglass – a peaceful backwater with no through traffic, a convenient railway station (we travelled by train) and even a narrow-gauge railway up the Eskdale Valley. We will be going back!
