If you want more than just a little touch of heaven then give the Gilpin a go. Rooms like something out of a movie. Food to die for, and served by people who really do love their jobs. Nothing too much to ask for. Gardens breathtaking. They even park your car for you. Take your bags to your room. Just... More

The hotel is amazing, super clean... Very friendly staff, great room service! Good locality! This place just made our trip! Would love to go back! The different breakfast/lunch/dinner room views are awesome! If you want halal/zabiha meat- you need to let them know in advance for your meals and they will provide it.

Arrived here after a horrendous journey and our frazzled senses were immediately calmed by warm welcome and the tranquil and luxurious environment of the Lake House. Our room, Harriet, was impeccable - comfortable, spacious, tastefully decorated and with stunning views. We spent quite a lot of time during our 3 night stay sitting in comfortable chairs simply enjoying the view,... More

Me and my fiancé stayed here in the dolly wagon pike room. We paid for the gold package. On arrival got driven to the lake house to have one of the best massages overlooking the lake. Driven back to have our bags waiting in our room. The hot tub was brilliant in the garden. We had cream tea and champagne... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights in the Grasmere room at the Hotel last week as part of our celebrations for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. It was our first visit to the Lakes and we had no idea quite how beautiful the area is. Gilpin is obviously not on a lake but the countryside around the property is lovely... More

We booked a Saturday lunch here to celebrate a birthday with a friend, and it was perfect. Very relaxed, stylish and not atall fussy or pretentious. The food was excellent and so was the decor and beautiful views from the windows. Could not have been better. There was a small function going on in another dining room, but the design... More

This was our 3rd stay at the hotel celebrating my Hubby's 50th Birthday. We spent 3 nights at the Hotel staying in Troutbeck & 3 nights at The Lake House staying in Maud. We could not have celebrated anywhere better. It was the first time we'd stayed at the Lake House & we would not hesitate to book it again... More

We are on our way home from a 2 night stay at The Gilpin Hotel & Lake house and we were sad to leave! We booked our stay for our 10 year wedding anniversary and it was magical from start to finish. We had 1 night in the Lake House and 1 night in the hotel in a Garden Suite.... More

My wife and I have just had a one night dinner bed and breakfast stay at this superb hotel that has left us wanting to experience a longer stay next time and soon. From booking last weekend to our stay last night, I received 3 emails and a telephone call from the team just ensuring that we were aware of... More
