Just celebrated our daughters Wedding at this wonderful hotel. Excellent service from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble for the very efficient, professional and most importantly, friendly members of staff. Accommodation for all members of the party was exceptional, lovely rooms with lots of added touches to make our stay extra special. The food was delicious all weekend... More

We booked a 3 night DBB break and had a room in the main house overlooking the park. The room was very large with a lovely view. Our evening meals were in the Lake View restaurant and far exceeded our expectations, we were unable to fault the food. The waiters in particular were excellent, very friendly but professional. The hotel... More

We had booked a room with a lake or garden view but were delighted to be upgraded to a suite with a stunning lake view, a sitting area and an enormous bathroom . we ate in the Lake View restaurant and while other reviewers...

Just returned from a Indulgance Spa Weekend break with 3 friends. It was a lovely relaxing weekend with good treatments, fab food and wonderful staff. We had booked Spa Rooms, one of which was on the ground floor which was lovely as we had a patio where we sat out on Friday afternoon drinking Prosceco. If the weekend weather had... More

Myself and my family had lunch here for the second time and once again were very impressed. It costs just £20 for three courses which are easily worth a lot more than this. Presentation is fantastic and the service is exceptional. Both times we have had our own waiter who caters to our needs and is very friendly. I couldn't... More

Very mean portion of smoked salmon, followed by over-cooked roast beef which was served on a cold plate and was only luke warm when it arrived. I had to ask twice for extra gravy and even then only a small amount was supplied. I thought the gravy might warm my dinner up but even the gravy wasn't hot. Only one... More

Just returned from a weekend Indulgence break, it was perfect. The location was stunning, the building grand, the spa and treatments excellent. Good selection of wine, gin and port. The food, of which there was plenty, was real fine dining. We would highly recommend this to anybody. We had a ground floor spa room. there wasn't any noise from the... More

We had afternoon tea on Thursday, whilst we arranged our stay for the usual family gathering at the Armathwaite Hotel. The afternoon tea was wonderful as usual and the staff couldn't do enough. We asked for extra tea and coffee, which wasn't a problem. The waiter explained all the different sandwiches and cakes. We had more than enough to eat.... More

I booked afternoon tea as a birthday treat for my wife, having been twice before and on both occasions it had been superb, we were both looking forward to returning. Changes had been made to the menu and sadly not for the better, the sandwiches were not special, one of them had small chunks of ham which was not what... More

We holiday in the Lake District frequently, and each time over 20 years, we have come to Armathwaite Hall for afternoon tea. It is one of our family traditions. I booked as usual, and we arrived, excited in anticipation of a lovely treat. Sadly, we were utterly disappointed. The sandwiches were very tasty, but our teenage son, being a little... More
