Kenneth and I would like to thank all those at Borrowdale Gates Hotel , who made our recent stay there a wonderful experience. We all suffer times of stress both at work and home, and vacations, be they long or short, are the balm that keeps us going. The opportunity to be pampered and treated like “Royalty”. That said, I can honestly say, our recent stay at Borrowdale Gates Hotel has been one of the best, ever! The Wainwright Suite was lovely, with marvellous views of the valley and garden, well-appointed and super clean. Super wine/bar choice, at a reasonable cost (very important!) And the food…ahhhh… the food! May I kidnap the Chef?! There are not enough superlatives to describe the food your Chefs produce. A “thank you” does not seem adequate but, please extend our heartfelt thanks to all those involved in making our stay so memorable.
