Food was great and the service spot on just needs a fresh up here and there,outside areas looked to be untidy that let it down a touch, I would go again in a few months just to see if things have changed any.

A small traditional hotel with wonderful views down the gardens to Windermere (Lake) & then on to the Langdales & even Scafell. The outstanding cuisine matches the view whilst the front bedrooms are large with modern bathrooms. Decor is suitably shabby chic with occasional Glasgow School of Art pieces. Staff are friendly & efficient; the whole ambiance is of relaxation... More

Revisiting a legend is always difficult unless it it has grown even better with age. Unfortunately Miller Howe, one of the truly great restaurants in the lakes under John Tovey has been immeasurably diminished. John Tovey was a great host, presenting food with theatrical flair and fine attention to detail. The welcome was always warm with professionally trained staff who,... More

The entire stay was just a bit off, under the mark of what I would have expected. Our room was nice with a large terrace -- overlooking the parking area and a tiny corner of the lake. The walls were quite good at conducting sound and we could hear every word our neighbors said as well as their televisions which... More

My wife and I recently stayed here in celebration of her birthday. I had stayed many years ago, and been most impressed so, decided it would be perfect for our special occasion. On arrival, in typical Lake District mist, I was a little disappointed to note the exterior decor of this beautiful old property has been allowed to deteriorate considerably... More

The hotel is situated overlooking Lake Windermere and had fabulous views. The private grounds were an added bonus. The hotel was very comfortable and stylish. Meals were very good. Tasty and well presented, with unusual dishes on offer. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Definitely will return for a very relaxing break.

Our lake view room with balcony was a perfect, peaceful location to enjoy Lake Windermere! beautiful furnishings, outdoor terrace and immaculate gardens to wander through and enjoy- all made this a thoroughly enjoyable short break. Wonderful choices at dinner, with those amazing views again.

I stayed with a friend for two nights. Our single rooms were very comfortable. They were not near to each other, one being in the main house, and one a short walk through the gardens to the cottage, but that was no no disadvantage. All the staff friendly and attentive, and our breakfast and dinners excellent. Very good value and... More

This is the first time we have been to The Lake District and had hot, sunny weather! The hotel was situated in beautiful grounds overlooking the lake. Our room was on the second floor but the views from the small balcony were magnificent. The food was of a very high standard and well presented in a dining room overlooking the... More

My daughter experienced the Lake District for her birthday weekend, as my treat, after a break of over 20 years. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and in particular, which is why we booked into the Miller Howe, the food. We enjoyed every course and taste of each of our three meals during our stay which were totally enhanced by... More
