This was a long weekend for 3 friends who were all celebrating the big 60. The hotel had been chosen with care an did not disappoint. The rooms were comfortable and we had twin beds and a balcony that overlooked the river. The food was amazing and we loved it all! But would echo other comments - the wine is... More

Expected a lot as this is a 4* hotel. On the most part we were very satisfied but maybe one or two of the reception staff should be more pleasant and welcoming towards their guests. We had a lovely room with double doors leading to a large balcony overlooking the river. The food was superb, especially our evening meals and... More

Booked this 2 night weekend break at short notice. We just wanted a relaxing weekend away and our stay at Rothay Garden was just that. Our room was lovely, a little small but we were restricted on the room we could have as we took our little dog. The Spa was lovely and spent time in there on both days.... More

We visited the Rothay Garden for New Year, expecting the same quality we had experienced at another hotel nearby,last new year at less cost. Alas that wasn't to be. It was an acceptable experience if it hadn't costed so much. The room was nice but very small with a small bathroom. The 'Spa' was a jacuzzi which was so chlorinated,... More

Sorry for not doing this last year, but we have had another unbelievably great experience at the Rothay Garden so we resolved to share it this time! As we had such a great holiday last year we decided to book again this year and recommended it to friends (who are keen walkers which we thought would be good to encourage... More

We have just returned from a 2 night pre Christmas stay at the Rothay Garden Hotel and Spa. Despite the torrential rain that was flooding the roads around Grasmere and Ambleside, we had a lovely stay. The hotel is located conveniently near to the small village and also a lovely pub at the top if the road. We would love... More

As regular visitors to the lakes and Rothay I sometimes think perhaps we should try somewhere different!! Anyway a good pre Xmas deal offered so off we went again. And we were so glad we did as it still ticks the boxes!! Room was perfect: a bit of early noise from the kitchen around 0730 but nothing to worry about.... More

We booked this hotel as a weekend away before christmas, for a relax and a bit of luxury. We walked into find two members of staff polishing and cleaning the entrance and stairs, it was incredibly clean. The reception staff were very helpful and welcoming. The room was the cheapest room that they offer (Rydale Room) and was ideal for... More

The pluses: Food is outstanding Wine list amazing and not ridiculously priced. Riverside spa is fabulous. So why not 5 stars? The bed was too hard and whilst this is a personal choice the big ridge up the middle of the 2 single mattresses zipped as one isn't. The bathroom wasn't great. The water wasn't particularly hot and at times... More
