Just returned from a wonderful weekend at the Lake House for our son's wedding. Venue could not have been better. Setting beautiful and the attentive staff ensured the event was a wonderful success. Highly recommend and will go back when possible

This hotel has the perfect balance of luxury without being pretentious. From the minute you arrive the staff are genuinely warm and friendly without exception, with each department delivering top class service. The rooms (we were in the hotel) are beautifully appointed and comfortable. Lounges and bar area are attractive and cosy and the wine list excellent. The food is... More

We stayed at The Gilpin Hotel for our short 2 night honeymoon. It was the perfect choice. On arrival we were welcomed warmly with genuine smiles and congratulations. The staff were charming, polite and attentive, but unaffected, and genuinely wanted to make our stay perfect in every aspect. They attended to every guest we saw in the same manner. The... More

We have just returned home after 6 glorious days in the Lakes. Everyday started with a fantastic breakfast and beautiful weather. From the moment we arrived, everyone in the Gilpin team was attentive and welcoming, we stayed in the Troutbeck room and I would recommend it to anyone! Keep it up team Gilpin you're on to a winner.

Having stayed and dined here a few years ago with family I knew standards were high. Booking a dinner for 20 for our annual sales conference with some quite fussy guests from the continent was a little nerve racking. I should never have had any doubt, right from my initial meeting with the chef to agree the menu through to... More

The Gilpin truly is an making place to stay. For those of you who love golf, there is a course in walking distance, for those of you who enjoy good food, there will be no disappointment. The service from all the staff was excellent and everyone was extremely helpful. We had a bed, breakfast an dinner package, which was perfect.... More

My partner and I just stayed three nights over the Easter long weekend in the Adgie room at the Lakehouse, part of the Gilpin hotel. This was intended as a rare treat as the stay did not come cheap. Dinner, bed & breakfast cost £505 per room per night. While many aspects of the stay lived up to expectations, some... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend at Gilpin in November 2013. This trip was a birthday treat and the staff just made it outstanding. Everyone was very nice and really caring. We stayed in a Rydal room, and though the design was a bit dated in my view it was all offset with a relaxing feeling of a... More

I think we have stayed in all the rooms since. And looking forward to returning to the new rooms in the pipeline. we... More

This is a beatiful spot for a peaceful luxurious break. The staff at the Lake House went out of their way to ensure we had everything that we needed to make our stay extra special. The food in the main hotel was top notch and it was a treat to be driven there and back by the hotel chauffers. We... More
