Our first trip to Gilpin Lodge and it was to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The experience was totally wonderful and relaxing, a gorgeous hotel and lake house. From the minute we arrived the attention to detail was exceptional and personal. The lake house Spa is well worth a trip and you wont want to leave. Dinner was superb, full of... More

Perfect location for a special birthday treat. A homely hotel with great service and wonderful food. We stayed for 3 nights and had the most relaxing stay in one of the very comfortable garden suites. Such a treat to eat in the hotel, each night we sampled a different dinning room which made it special, the food is wonderful and... More

Went with friends to celebrate birthday.Hotel is beautifully furnished throughout.The public rooms are spacious and comfortable. Food was good and different. What set this hotel apart from other top notch hotels was the staff. Everyone was friendly, happy, with nothing to much trouble, Other hotels could take a lesson. If I had a criticism is was the price of the... More

We stayed in the lake house just after Easter. From the moment we arrived until we left it was just perfect. The setting is wonderful and the house is beautiful. Dinner was excellent, fabulous food and a chauffeur to bring you home! The spa was great, we did the jetty spa trail which was exceptional value and so relaxing! We'd... More

We visited last month and a very rude member of staff made us change our plans. We were going to book a large party but decided to go elsewhere. The woman had no manners and must be losing the Hotel so much business!!!

The tasting menu ran to five course plus an amuse bouche and pre desert. Following a simple fruit gazpacho, we started with a plate of duck, a soft and rich port marinated liver, some mildly smoked breast and a small confit of leg. Next, two scallops (three would have been nice) with haddock fritters and saffron pickled carrots, tomato and... More

We have visited the Gilpin three times now, the first occasion being our minimoon in November 2013. This really is the place to leave all your troubles at the door. The ambiance is incredibly relaxing and luxurious - you almost feel like you're wrapped in velvet on arrival and left to luxuriate until it's time to go home. The Gilpin... More
