Great place to unwind and relax, stayed on a travel zoo deal as we do many. Was a bit disappointed to note when we booked that they said there was no room types available on the travel zoo and we needed to pay an extra £20-00 for a lake view, this was not a problem as the lake views are... More

The Miller Howe Hotel is conveniently located on the road between Bowness and Ambleside. We booked an afternoon Sunday tea, which is served from 16.00hrs. This quaint hotel is very tastefully and sympathetically furnished, Retaining all of the charm and features of the period. We were shown to a table in the conservatory which commanded beautiful views of the northern... More

A welcome Christmas gift from our daughter, we arrived earlier this afternoon and immediately were made to feel extremely welcome. The attention to detail is second to none. Views across Lake Windermere from our lake side room were breathtaking. Later, in the restaurant, all staff without exception were totally attentive without being intrusive. Food, was first class. 10/10 and more.... More

We expected good things but were generally disappointed with the experience. The room was fine but the bathroom was terrible and looked straight out of the 1980's with an awful over bath shower. The food was mixed with a nice breakfast but poor elements to the main course. They then overcharged us for drinks which they seemed to resent having... More

Wanted a very last minute booking, No problem, but only standard rooms where left, so took these. Porter Service, No or not offered, would have expected this as Miller Howe's reputation is very high indeed. Dog Friendly, Yes and excellent, of course no pooches in the restaurant, didn't ask, but would not anyway. Very friendly, personal hospitality from the team,... More

This is a great country house hotel overlooking Windermere. Very convenient for Bowness. The staff were excellent and very attentive. The hotel is truly dog friendly, with our dog allowed everywhere except the restaurant, which is to be expected. He even got treats from some of the staff! There is plenty of seating between the bar, lounge and conservatory for... More

Following our third visit to Miller Howe, for dinner and overnight stay, we were again blown away by the quality of the food. The chef is brilliant and never disappoints. Service is excellent as always and in it's old fashioned chintzy way it is welcoming and charming. The dining room is quite modern now which is a big improvement, the... More

We booked the hotel for a quiet break and we cannot fault the rooms and views as they were as wonderful as we expected. The breakfast was also very nice, we opted out of the dinner as we felt that £99 each was a bit ridiculous. Yet my issue with the hotel was for some reason the other guests and... More
