Stepurcell – April 2012

Just back from a great weekend courtesy of groupon voucher, my partner and I upgraded to balcony room for an extra 60 pounds overlooking the river, which we both agreed was amazing,The hotel is in fairness a little out of the way so ideal if you want to chill and relax, is a great location for walks and being on the river Leven ideal for any nature lovers, we watched a large heron catch an eel, lol the room was fine although the carpets and curtains could do with an upgrade, The superking bed was very comfy, and the spa bath was amazing and relaxing too.the price included breakfast both mornings and also an evening meal on the first night, the meal at the restaurant was ‘amazing’ the chef obviously knows his stuff, i opted for venison medium rare and sure enough it was spot on ! the service was fantastic too, all in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, i gave the receptionist my contact details so I could be included in any further hotel deals, Thank You Whitewater for a lovely relaxing stay!

A great hotel to stay in, and a great base for your stay to explore the Lake district

Myself and my mum had a weekend break with the offer ‘Girls Great escape’ and I would just like to say a big thank you for making our stay so lovely. The reception staff were lovely and very welcoming, we had spa treatment by a girl called Jodie who was great and really helped us relax. The evening meal was super.

Again a big thank you to all the staff at the hotel.

We will be coming back again.

Dear Sophie and reservations, Good afternoon. Hope you all are well.

We have just received a feedback for your hotel from the tour leader of our group arrived on 11/AUG/2011 and stayed for 1night.

I have heard that they had a very comfortable stay and really enjoyed their time there.
Especially, they all said that 3course dinner was excellent!
From guests’ questionnaire after touring all around UK for 5days, your hotel dinner has been chosen to the best meal for them.

We will have a similar tour next summer as well and do hope to have opportunities to work with you again.
Thank you once again for all your services.

Brenda – Sheffield – March 2011

Booked 1 night with Groupon and added on an extra night so glad we did. Reception staff pleasant polite and pleased to assist. A standard room was better than a lot of the executive rooms we have stayed in. Lovely large room, french windows onto a pleasant balcony, really comfy bed, immaculate bathroom, dressing gowns slippers, nice flat screened telly {well positioned] and free wi fi .

Ate in the restaurant and the Dolly Blue Bar. Both meals were very enjoyable. The same staff worked in both and were great , they work really hard and are gave 100% they appeared short staffed at breakfast on the Sunday morning and they worked flat out with good grace inspite of the usual grumpy guests who seem to critisise for the sake of it

The location is superb it is a pleasure to sit in the bar and watch the river gushing by.

Groupon voucher holders that have not been yet you are in for a treat. It is certainly one for a return visit. Well worth the rack rate
Full marks to the manager and staff the hotel is a credit to you all

Fraser – Durham – January 2011

Our stay was booked via Groupon, great value for money. We upgraded our room to an executive room which had a balcony, jacuzzi bath and as we were on the end we had fabulous views all round overlooking the river. Had afternoon cream tea in the dolly blue bar which had lovely views over the river.

We used the pool facilities which were really nice and clean. The hotel itself is nice and spacious with comfortable seating areas. Breakfast was nice, full english with selection of fruit juices, fresh fruit, cereals and pastries, service was a little slow, but if you are not in a hurry then who cares.

Location is picture postcard, will be returning.
