Too commercial; too abbreviated Jul 13, 2007
I have purchased 5 books to help me with an upcoming trip to the Lake District and this is the one book I would have passed on. The book has commercial advertisements which detract from the book. Also, the restaurant and hotel recoommendations are sparce. Skip this book and buy Rough Guide instead.
Don't Waste Your Money Jul 24, 2006
Don't be fooled by this so-called "book" -- one quarter of the space is taken up with cleverly-distinquished ads for guest houses and the like. If you didn't read the fine print, you might be fooled into thinking that the author was recommending these places, but they paid to be there.
The rest of the text is pretty basic, and not very detailed. The Rough Guide to the Lakes District is MUCH, MUCH better -- better researched, more detailed, and more objective.
