Over thirty pounds for a bed in a dormitory - without breakfast. You've got to be having a laugh, right? Nope. Britain's young people are being priced out of the YHA. When I pointed this out to the receptionist, he said: you could always camp instead. Isn't this missing the point?

Perfect for me.

Posted 26-Jun-2018 on Hotels
My trip was for a few days walking in the hills around Coniston. I would happily give 5 star reviews for all elements because for me the experience provided everything I expected and more. However that would not be fair to the reader should anyone take notice of my review. The location, facilities and service were perfect for me. However closer inspection would reveal very basic sleeping arrangements and some rather dated and perhaps one could say shabby decoration in the dormitory to which I was assigned. However for the cost to me for the facilities I did not anticipate perfection. The breakfast provided was first class and there are more than adequate facilities to enjoy reading or games etc and a well stocked bar. The location is ideal for access to the facilities provided in the town.

Nice hotel close to Lake Coniston.

Pros: Was the comfiest bed I've slept in whilst staying in a hostel in Britain.
Cons: There's a background buzzing noise in the lounge that once noticed is a bit of a motivator to avoid that room.
Location: You can cut through to the Old Mann trail and Copper mines by using a gate to the side of the building and following the path to the left.
Hostel at the base of a small mountain, brilliant for walks. The Hostel also has camping options available at a cheaper than surrounding campsites amount per night, available on both on front and back grounds of the building. Though not a star spot the grounds are rather nicely kept. Do keep an eye out for the odd sheep. The building itself is massive and contains both its own lounge and tv room, huge self-serving kitchen, and a wide option of toilets and shower stalls scattered throughout. Rooms old but kept together, also including beautiful surrounding views which feel like a blessing to wake up to.

Worst Internet ever.. overpriced

Posted 12-Aug-2016 on Hotels
It was alright.i made the booking last minute. For the price its not worth. Should include breakfast. We couldn't get Internet working. Its the worst Internet ever.i believe there's only one access point to entire hotel and its only reachable in one main lobby. I thought stay was overpriced. Staff was good. Nothing to complain about staff.

Un arrêt agréable dans la nature

Nous avons passé une nuit sans problème. Un accueil correcte avec toutes les explications nécessaires. L'endroit est magnifique et je propose ce hostel pour un séjour dans la nature. Le parc est magnifique. Coniston est très joli avec ses restaurants et ses s pubs sympa.
