The food was a real highlight and each course at dinner was absolutely delicious! Breakfast was a very leisurely affair to savour each mouthful!! We love staying here. It is our... More

as always simply perfect luxurious , opulent , warm , friendly , ideal position just far enough away from the hustle and bustle but 10 minutes drive to the lakeside , the taster menus are amazing but the warmth of the staff is without doubt the best bit

We recently visited The Gilpin for my birthday and it was fantastic from start to finish. We were staying in one of the garden suites a short walk from the main hotel which made it feel even more secluded. The standard of the hotel, room, food and staff were second to none and I can say with confidence that it... More

I booked the Gilpin as a birthday treat for my husband (and myself)! It looked divine and after reading a review in one of my many glossy magazines I knew it was a hotel that would appeal to us. From the moment we arrived I knew i'd made the right decision and we both relaxed straight away. We were booked... More

Arrived and were quikly shown our room and entered into the "spa trail", we had the oils consultation, swimming pool, massage, boat house afternoon tea and finally the outdoor hot tub infront of the lake house. We stayed at the Lake House (and breakfast) and had dinner at the Hotel.The food and service were amazing. Highly recommended.

We stayed in The Lake House and it was perfect for us. Walking through the front door we felt totally relaxed immediately. The whole house is tranquil and very welcoming. The facilities are good and we made use of the swimming pool and hot tub. Breakfast is prepared freshly to order with lots of choice. The staff are very attentive... More

We have just returned from spending a fabulous 3 night vacation at the Gilpin Hotel Lake House. This is our third stay at the hotel, and we will definitely be going back again. The location is absolutely beautiful with breathtaking views across the rolling hills and deep valleys. We stayed in "Harriet" which is the best room in the hotel... More

My husband proposed to me at the Gilpin, we then returned for part of our honeymoon. Last month we returned for a treat and a treat it was. We stayed in Wetherlam, a gorgeous room with amazing views, so relaxing. The bathroom was fantastic ( with a bath big enough for two). The staff just cannot do enough for you,... More
