The Lake District is stunning and there are many places I could have chosen whilst experiencing the Rolls Royce Phantom. There are ridiculously picturesque locations in the Lake District, and Storrs Hall offers unobtrusive views of the lake. The shores of Windermere are stunning, majestic and very tranquil. Well on this occasion a storm was blowing across the United Kingdom, but no matter what the weather here, Storrs Hall is special. This hotel is owned by the Hindle family and they are committed to making sure that anyone and everyone feels like they are home away from home. Storrs Hall is part of that endeavour for many years, restoring a hotel is a labour of love and this is certainly reflected in the decor and the staff that run it.
The Lake District for me is the endeavour I didn’t know I wanted or maybe I did? That unexplainable impulse driving me beyond my imagination.
The hotel offers 30 stylish em-suite bedrooms, each individually designed and decorated in a contemporary style. There was still loads of character but with a modern eye for simplicity. I stayed in the Executive Suite, with wonderful views of Lake Windermere. The spacious bedroom includes a living area with a sumptuous sofa facing one of the large Georgian windows. I loved sitting in the Georgian window looking out at the lake and also to make sure the Rolls Royce was doing ok! I spent the afternoon relaxing pondering at God’s nature!
This suite had such a wonderful ambience to it, I liked how they used little nooks to bring bursts of color. The furniture was very ornate, comfortable and the option of having two working stations was excellent. The role play and dresses ups I had in this room was an unforgettable experience.
The bathroom was massive, modern and had a calm off white background. The sunlight around this room follows as the day progresses. This bathroom has a nice feel in which a can relax and find peace of mind. I am a big fan of this high-quality Villeroy & Boch Bathroom, which they have turned into anyone’s dream bathroom. The creative and magical bathroom ideas with double sinks, exudes quality. I liked the option of watching TV, whilst soaking in the bath. The shower was very spacious and the three button options makes showering modern, easy and fun.
I tear my gaze from the wall paintings to Lake Windermere. The service here at Storrs Hall is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. I like how you can choose from two different menu’s. The ever changing menu meant on both occasions, I could really experience fine dining here.
It is a AA Rosette restaurant but I would give it endless A’s regarding eating here. The food presentation is second to none. The food itself is unbelievably tasty and one of the best hotel experiences I have had regarding eating at a hotel restaurant. It doesn’t take long to savour the fabulous tastes here at the Lake Edge Restaurant. The whimsical and quintessentially British palate cleanser after eating fabulous local venison was delicious. The food is inspired by the local area, are a cloud-like puff of beetroot, local fish and a cleverly deconstructed take on some of the British bake offs I am so familiar with. I encourage anyone when staying here not to venture out, you will not get better service, food and views.
Breakfast The Lake Edge
Most of you will agree that having a great start for breakfast is certainly one of the most significant parts of the day. To wake up with a lake edge view and endless sun coming into the restaurant for breakfast is a perfect way to start my day. I noticed there was a conference happening and a team building event. This is a very special venue to entertain guests, weddings and celebrations. The food was fresh and well presented.
Tesla Charging Stations
Ironically the week before I picked up the Rolls Royce Phantom I also reviewed the Tesla Model X. It was great to see that there were dedicated charging stations here at Storrs Hall. Trust me this is not as common as you may think it is. The future is electric and it is here to stay.
Storrs Hall prides itself on recruiting a passionate team, from all around the globe. From the moment I walked into reception, anything I asked for was always done with a swift and friendly nature. The staff here were always assisting me in creating a warm, relaxing stay. Lake Windermere is an unspoilt area of the UK and to be able to stay so close to this stunning natural setting is why Storrs Hall is unique. The food is amazing and the interior of this hotel has a wealth of history with plenty of crackling log fireplaces around the hotel to keep me warm.
Every guests staying here for the first time insisted they would come back again, for the customer service, lovely spotless clean en-suites, the setting and ambience.
