Absolutely beautiful if I could rate it 10 star I would. From the moment you step foot in the building it's peaceful and relaxing. The views where out of this world you could even get the paddle boat out and sail around the lake. The pool was heated and there was a sauna which was perfect with a lovely and... More

We booked a Spa Lodge to celebrate our wedding anniversary & we're delighted that we did. The Lodges are unique, we haven't seen anything like them anywhere else. You have your own hot tub, sauna & steam room/rain maker shower to enjoy. There is a convertible treatment area so you can book treatments in your room and/or order fab spa... More

I can't recommend the Gilpin enough and quite simply cant wait for an excuse to get back there ! We felt more relaxed after 2 nights here than we have on some week long breaks that we have had. I think what makes it special is the wall to wall luxury where every whim has been thought about and catered... More

This was our 6th visit to Gilpin Hotel and everytime we go it just seems to get better and better. We stayed in a Garden Suite as we love the hot tub, even in January it is a great experience and so relaxing. Although the bottle of bubbly we brought helped in that respects as well. They are in the... More

I visited The Gilpin for the first time in August. I took my Mum for her 70th birthday and it was wonderful. I couldn't wait to return with my husband. My second visit was also wonderful. We had a problem with a mix up on the first morning but Sarah, the manager dealt with it with huge professionalism which demonstrates... More

When it is a cold wet January night, the tub is not made of plastic and you are so secluded that all you can is local rock and all that can see you are the local llamas. We had a garden suite,won't say which one as when we go next time we want a good chance of rebooking it. If... More

This is a haven of tranquility, peace and warmth, where the good is absolutely sensational and the service is second to none. I met Mr and Mrs Cunliffe, the owners, two more delightful people you couldn't hope to meet. We left feeling really beautifully looked after and extremely relaxed. If you like the Lake District you'll love the Gilpin!

My husband brought me for my 40th birthday in December. A little awkward to find by satnav. However, we rang the Hotel who explained exactly their location with ease. We arrived to a very warm welcome and homely feel. It was amazing experience. The service, standard of accommodation , staff, food, location , SPA! ALL FIRST CLASS the staff also... More

Our 3 nights at the Lakehouse in November were bliss. Our room overlooked the private lake and was luxurious and very comfortable. We walked each day and were driven to Gilpin Lodge for amazing dinners each night. My highlight was champagne in the boathouse overlooking the lake while my husband fished. Bliss. The staff are great and the Coulson family,... More

I am not sure you can get a touch of the 'Holiday blues' from just one night away, but it was certainly disappointing to leave the next day. Every aspect of the trip was perfection. The trip was for business/pleasure and ended up the latter. Having arrived a little later than planned I thought I might be pushing it to... More
