Really nice hotel - went for over night stay with breakfast and afternoon tea. Service was what you would/should expect and afternoon tea was 'average' compared to some non-michelin restaurants I have been to. Evening dinner was faultless as was the service - this cannot be disputed. Slightly disappointed I had called to explain it was my wife birthday and... More

I booked the weekend at Holbeck Ghyll as a surprise for my partner's birthday based on its reputation and Michelin Star status. We surprise each other for our birthdays and have stayed at luxury small hotels and eaten at Michelin Star restaurants all over the world. The hotel is in a beautiful location with stunning views over Lake Windermere, is... More

My wife and I booked Holbeck Ghyll for a winter weekend stay (bed, breakfast and dinner) based on its location, dining and positive reviews. At the start of the weekend we had some bad luck and got stuck on a closed M6. With the strong likelihood that we might not make it in time for dinner, I rang reception and... More

This hotel is not cheap but you are getting the quality you pay for. The location is excellent (overlooking the lake but half a mile away from it so quiet). Ample parking (though much of it a little walk from the main house). The hotel is very well staffed so you never wait for service. Little touches such as a... More

Holbeck Ghyll is currently my favourite hotel in England (and possibly anywhere!) We were in a lake view room (the Tower room) for three nights. My husband and I had been working insanely hard (City lawyers, it happens) and were desperate to get away from it all for a few days. Holbeck Ghyll was most certainly the right choice. In... More

Having stayed the Friday night elsewhere in the Lakes, on Saturday morning (08/11) we decided at the last minute that we wanted to stay on for a second night. We searched some of the late deal sites and rang the hotel reception to see what availability there was. We were offered either the main house or one of the lodges... More

Room: We stayed at Holbeck Ghyll in room 7. From the images online it looked small and old fashioned. It was not. The room was spacious and cozy with plenty of amenities and attention to detail. We particularly liked the choice of magazines and the complimentary bottle of locally made strawberry gin. The bathroom was fantastic and was described by... More

Ok so me and my family were looking forward to our night at Holbeck Ghyll. We had the place recommended and also seen The Trip on tv, which we LOVED, so we were looking forward to dinner! Beautiful grounds and amazing house! Wow! All art & Crafts style. So we checked in, but to our surprise, were taken out of... More

After work had been very busy, a pal and I decided that a spa day at Holbeck Ghyll was the perfect tonic. I have been for dinner before to the hotel, and was already impressed by the wonderful two star Michelin restaurant, the food was sublime. The spa day was yet another way to enjoy the delights that his lovely... More

A friend & I decided that a spa day was what was needed to revitalise our lagging energy levels and we chose Holbeck Ghyll for a number of reasons, not least because a fabulous two course Michelin Star lunch was included. And it was indeed fabulous and faultless throughout. Service too was attentive from the time we arrived until our... More
