Only used the bar, didn't stay in the hotel. We were there quite late on in the evening, around 10pm and it seemed to get a bit rowdy around that time with a lot of drunk people staggering about. We decided to sit outside as we didn't feel comfortable sitting inside. The staff were friendly enough although the man that...

Stayed with Grandchildren aged one and four. Was very apprehensive reading some of the reviews regarding noise. We were in room 16. Didn't hear a single thing. 5 stars for the cleanliness of the room especially the bathroom. The communal corridors feel a little dated. Think it may be all that wood. I found the staff helpful informative and on...

We have been to this hotel many time over the last 20 years and its had many changes and on going refurbs have also been done, this place has sentimental reasons for staying and although we do stay elsewhere in the area at times is only because we like a change. The suit is nice and clean and staff are...

This was booked as a present for us for Christmas. We arrived and you just go the bar to book in. The barman took us through to the reception which was a small table through a door. He was friendly enough. We got our key and were directed to our room. Straight away I got a weird feeling. Obviously its...

Kendal, United Kingdom

I was having my night out after work with my friends on 24th June when we decided to pop to Stags downstairs. The atmosphere was excellent, as ever, however this time something disturbing happened. I went to the bar downstairs on our arrival and wanted to order couple of drinks for my friends. As I approached the bar a petit, ponytailed black haired barmaid asked my what I was after. I said my order and then other of my friends joined as. I moved about 2 meters towards just to ask what did he want to drink which took me literally couple of seconds. When I turned back to the bar reaction of barmaid was at least shocking. She shouted at me never ever to leave the bar whilst ordering drinks. I tried to explain one more of my mates had just turned up, but then she interrupted me shouting even louder and pointing her finger straight to my face 'No, Listen! You have to stay here! ...etc...'. I've been frequent customer of Stags Heads for the last more than 10 years and nothing like that that had happened to me yet. Last week when we returned to the same bar with my other mate situation wasn't much better. We've been waiting on the bar to be serviced for about 20 minutes (!). People who came much after us were serviced whilst we were completely ignored. At this point big credit for not too tall barman with black short hair and beard. Only he turned up he serviced me instantly. Two other barmen turned out to be complete ignorant even thou I was trying to talk to them several times before the other, nice barman turned up. I'd like to ask a question if that is a usual routine of treating guests unpleasantly for some time? If yes, thank you for letting me know it, so me and my friends will choose other location for our following night out. Thank you.
