Last minute stay on Hotel Tonight was expecting the typical overrated Lakes Hotel. I was wrong. Brilliant atmosphere, great rooms, fantastic service and care especially from Kim and the breakfast was terrific. Just enough out of town to be quiet but walkable for shops. Would definitely come back.

My wife and I stayed for a two night short break at The Howbeck and from the minute we arrived until leaving, we were made very welcome. Staff were very pleasant and keen to ensure we enjoyed our stay. This is a really good quality guest house which is ideally situated only a few minutes walk from Windermere centre. We... More

My understanding is the trip was lovely and leisurely - great breakfast, rooms luxurious but slightly on the small side. I must earn of booking via Room for Romance though - don't do it, book direct! I cannot begin to express my disappointment with choosing Room for Romance to help my sister and her husband to be celebrate their union.... More

Stayed at The Howbeck for three nights 7-10th August. The staff were welcoming and friendly and always smiling. The breakfasts each morning were individually cooked and very nice. We were in room Deepdale and my only criticism is that this is probably the only room that doesn't appear to have had a complete makeover. The pine furniture is old and... More

We booked the room at short notice but were extremely confident in our choice thanks to a phone call to their staff who were very well informed and their website which gave us an idea of what sort of room we were getting. It is worth noting that the spa facilities where part of a hotel on the waterfront but... More

All the staff were delightful and went out of their way to be helpful. We had use of spa facilities in another hotel over looking Lake... More

We received top notch service at the Howbeck. The whole experience exceeded our expectations from the beautifully appointed room, amazing features of the on-suite with the air bubble tub, and wonderful shower, the lovely patio with water feature and the tremendous dining experience. The evening meal was great - we had the Westmorland Lamb and Beef Stilton. The meal ended... More

We are a family of three and an extra bed was slotted into our room for our 10 year old son. This worked perfectly for us. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The room was fine with very comfortable beds, very clean and with a smart bathroom. Breakfast was generally great, very filling and with some interesting freshly made... More
