Off to a great start

4 May 2011 / Business / Reviews

Well we could not have asked for better weather to lead us into the Easter holiday period and our first few opening weekends.

With a flurry of bookings we were full with guests enjoying the sunshine and getting out into the Lake District mountains.

We’ve had visitors from all over the globe. A favoured website for international travellers appears to be hostelworld.com. With over 30 bookings through them since we registered with them a couple of weeks ago their stats analysis tell us that we’ve had visitors from:

England, France, Spain, Switzerland , India, Northern Ireland , Scotland, Hong Kong, Colombia, South Korea, Russia, Poland, Japan, USA, Australia.

We’ve also received reviews that tell us that:

We have a great location, great staff, good atmosphere, and that the hostel is very comfortable.

The rooms were basic but clean and the staff were very friendly and knowledgable about walks in the surrounding area.

The Breakfast was great value at £5, and a great start for a long walk.

The hostel is ideally placed if you want to be a bit out of the way and able to go directly out into the surrounding countryside.

Guests commented that they really enjoyed their stay and would definately recommend Thorney How to others.

Whilst we are very happy with these reviews we must also acknowledge that there is an inadequate number of showers. We are aware of this and it is at the top of our lists for improvements. We are working on a solution currently.
