Excellent service, really nice room, great food and good location for town. Would recommend The Howbeck to everyone. Only a mile and a half from Windermere lake, for boat hire, cruises, and other fun things to do there.

We arrived early 12.30 and popped into reception just checking if our room was ready, as we understood checkout was 10.30. It was not the most professional welcome I have ever received.

My husband and I stayed at the Howbeck during our honeymoon and were so impressed that we returned again this year for our anniversary. Our second stay definitely lived up to the first - brilliant service throughout and an amazing room (The Retreat) which has its own little patio area where we were served a delicious dinner. We would thoroughly... More

Spent two nights recently at the Howbeck in a secret escapes deal. Coffee on arrival. Stayed in meregill luxury room. Nice bottle of prosecco on ice in room. Nice touches like bottled water and Kendal mint cake and cookies. Fab spa bath. Friendly staff. Excellent location. Lovely breakfast. Free parking. Would definitely recommend and hope to return soon.

My wife and I stayed in the Meregill room for one night, lovely hotel, friendly staff, and an awesome full english breakfast. Close to the railway station, and not too far to walk to Bowness. Highly recommended. Would definitely book again.
