stayed at this Hotel before and it's idealy situated for a nice stroll round the shops then a nice meal (all types), then a short walk back to the hotel. Didn't have evening meals there but the Breakfasts are dead fresh and dead tasty (try the black pudding)?

The Old England has been beautifully

The Old England has been beautifully updated and is in a magnificent position overlooking the lake. Everything was of the highest standard, the staff could not be faulted. Our room in the original building had a lake view and was exceptionally good value through HotelClub. A 5* experience, thank you.

The hotel's location is excellent.

The hotel's location is excellent. SPA is brand new and good quality. Bar area and Lounge are really good. There is a great lake view in the hotel. The room we were in had a great lake view, but the windows were really dirty. Especially the fact that there was a massive bird dirt on the window did not make us very happy. The bath tub had a leak so when we took shower, the whole bothroom got wet in 5 min. Conclusion is that it is a great location and the hotel is probably leveraging it to justify high prices because the room quality does not justify it

The hotel is well situated near

The hotel is well situated near the lake, and has very nice facilities (including a spa). The price is somewhat higher than I would expect. Parking is a problem in this area, but the hotel offers a 5 minutes away parking lot (quite crowded on the day I visited). Bottom line: I enjoyed the hotel, and might return in the future.
