Extremely impressed with the whole setup at the Roundthorn Country House. Every single one of the staff are attentive, polite, professional and the most important for me is that they all smile. The food is an absolute delight, massive thumbs up to their talented chef! I'm already looking forward to returning next week for a 3 night business stay. Well... More

Stayed two nights during road trip to celebrate parents Golden Wedding. Staff very attentive, location wonderful, rooms very well appointed, views of snow capped Lake District breath taking. Food of a particularly high standard, taken in very pleasing dinning room with open fire. Perfect stay made all the more special by the friendly and caring staff.

superbly organized hotel, food was excellent, service faultless, we had our staff xmas party at this hotel 2015, great atmosphere and friendly staff, a couple of party games which were good and not too intrusive. The setting and grounds were beautiful, all in all a great night and would definitely go again.

We stayed in a large family room overlooking the front of the gardens and drive. The bathroom of this room has a spectacular view out, just remember the window is two way! Cocktails pre evening...
