The hotel has wonderful views and grounds. We had a 2 night Travel Zoo deal. We were disappointed that our room overlooked the driveway and busy road. The room itself was excellent. We ate on the first night and were disappointed that we could not have a table by the window. Was this because we were on a deal? The... More

In the mid-1970s, when John Tovey owned the Miller-Howe and ruled its kitchen, I had the most glorious afternoon tea of my lifetime there. I've wanted to return ever since, and this summer I fulfilled that dream, even spending a night. The Miller-Howe's location on a promontory overlooking beautiful Lake Windemere is still unparalleled, a walk through the gorgeous garden... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night and it was wonderful. Staff were attentive and polite whilst being friendly too. Check in was swift and problem free and we had all the information we needed presented to us in a folder placed discreetly in our room. We stayed in the Coniston room and it was lovely. A large...

I booked this for a three night romantic weekend through a Secret Escapes offer of bed, breakfast and four course evening meal. I enjoy good food and was looking forward to the dining experience. The first night, I was quite impressed, but my disappointment increased with the stay, as basically the same canapés, menu and petit fours were offered each... More

Another of our party tried again the next day and had a much more pleasant Lady who promised to ring her... More

We stayed at the Miller Howe Hotel for 2 nights for my husbands birthday. The hotel is in a beautiful location with picturesque views of the lake. Close to a small town, local amenities were good. Our room was beautifully decorated, with a huge, comfy bed. The staff were very attentive throughout our stay and nothing was a problem. We... More

I would have given this 5 stars but the hotel was just a little bit tired around the edges. We paid extra for a lake view room (Elterwater) which was definitely the right choice but I have to say the bathroom was quite dated with poor pressure from the shower. The food was incredible and the views spellbinding though so... More

Stayed in the Windermere room with Lake views, big really comfy bed and a good bathroom with awesome water pressure! Interesting and varied wine list with something to suit every taste and budget and more importantly to match the food. Nice touches - little canapes with pre dinner drink and then at the table an asparagus and parmesan amuse bouche... More
