After spending numerous special occasions and many the odd nights for no particular reason at this hotel when John Tovey and the Garside’s owned the hotel we have to say we would definitely come back, the formality of everyone attending dinner at 8pm when the dining room lights were dimmed to non-existent and it being a spectacular event which everyone...

We have just returned from a glorious stay at Miller Howe. We went there three years ago for our honeymoon and have been itching to go back but a little lady came along and stopped play for a while! Luckily our wonderful parents had her for two nights while we could go and indulge. We were in Elterwater which is... More

I had dinner at the MH many years ago when it was owned by John Tovey and was looking forward to having a similar wonderful experience. Unfortunately, as mentioned by other disappointed reviewers , the hotel seems to be living on the past wonderful reputation. The good bits are as follows:-friendly and welcoming receptionist, delicious dinner, the stunning location, our... More

I booked our stay as a surprise through late rooms with dinner and breakfast included. The food was great with a great wine selection. We stayed in Rydal room on the top floor, we had fantastic views of the lake. The bathroom was slightly dated but it didn't matter as it was spotles. The bedroom was Lovely, a really comfortable...

I agree with a recent reviewer who mentioned a grumpy manager. If it is the same one who took my card for the bill, then he definitely needs a sharp course in how to be friendly to customers. The food was great, as always. The service was very good, especially the young man who served us. The view was amazing.... More

Spent a Saturday night here on a special deal from Secret Escapes staying in a non-lake view room which was lovely, excellent food at evening meal and breakfast, and a brilliant view from the gardens and terrace overlooking the lake. We could not fault here and will revisit.

Having been here many times before for dinner , lunch and afternoon tea and it has always been brilliant we were so disappointed with our recent evening meal we had!! Firstly nobody seemed interested that we were there and the staff just seemed generally grumpy!! Especially the male manager that was on duty! Anyway the food wasn't great, maybe the... More

We arrived at this hotel as the last stop of a wonderful week spent touring our beautiful country . On arrival we waited to be checked in by a worker chewing gum, singing and telling us that he was off to Wembly to see Eminen in the next couple of days.... Our room was small with carpet in the bathroom... More

Miller Howe has a stunning location, and our cottage was one of the best lodgings we have ever stayed in, but it had one major drawback - no internet, in spite of the claims of the website and the email confirmation of our reservation There was internet in the bar, a 100 foot walk uphill from our lodging. The food... More

Having first visited this beautiful hotel under the original owner John Tovey, it was a return visit after many years have passed. Also a very important one for us both due to recent major health issues. From the minute we arrived, we knew we were back in what is one of the best locations and certainly best hotels in the...
