A poor greeting on arrival. 90% of the staff are foreign and struggle to understand and then getting requirements wrong. Very frustrating. A beautiful hotel ruined by the feeling of cheaper staff hired. It's like going to a beautiful Italian hotel and being served by Londoners.

Wonderful location and a wonderful building on pulling into the car park. Had there xmas decorations up and it was absolutely amazing. Lovely waiter took us to our table for afternoon tea and explained our options and took our order. Afternoon tea arrived quickly. Sandwiches, quiches, scone, cakes, tea and hot chocolate. Was absolutely delicious and the service was fantastic.

As part of a two-night dinner B&B stay, we stayed in a ground floor club room, part of an extension to the main house. Very well equipped but a little cramped and the main corridor leading past the room to the spa was very narrow, like a ship's passageway. Yet venture into the main Hall and you feel like the...

I was generally very pleased to have chosen Armathwaite for a 2 day mini break for my sister and I. The building is beautiful and set in the wonderful surroundings of the Northern Lakes. The food is of a very respectable standard, the spa area and treatment rooms are high quality and the staff are very accommodating. Most notably, during... More

Courtesy of my sister and brother in law a gift of an afternoon tea was a present for my wifes 70th birthday. As we were staying in Keswick we booked last Saturday. We arrived but had great difficulty in finding a parking place with every spare space taken. Eventually I found a space and ran in due to heavy rain.... More

We visit Armathwaite Hall on an annual basis as we live relatively near and over that time we have always been delighted with the place. We visited last Saturday evening for dinner in the main restaurant and we were joined by our family, a total of 5 of us dined. We had pre dinner drinks in the bar which is... More

I bought an overnight stay with dinner through TravelZoo as an anniversary treat and phoned to book my preferred date (4 weeks ahead) only to be informed that there were limited dates available and that their allocation had all been booked for the day I wanted. As we could only travel and stay on a Sunday due to childcare arrangements... More

Visited for a half hour facial. Very very relaxing, great products used, lovely girl who did the treatment. I was taken to a relaxation room afterwards and brought some refreshments. It was amazing! My refreshments included a short mango smoothie and a truffle. Just beautiful. Can't wait to go again, I will definitely factor it in to out next visit... More

booked a spa day with a friend last week while we were staying in Keswick. After a few days out on the fells it was just what we needed and we weren't disappointed. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel so welcome. I've been to a couple of other 'spas' in the area and they weren't... More
