We stayed here during a half term break and we were treated to a wonderful stay. We had booked an occasions room and upon arriving we were informed by the lovely lady who showed us to our room, that we had been allocated the best room in the hotel! Room 15 certainly felt like it- a huge comfortable bed, stunning... More

We dined tonight using our taste card which is fantastic value. On arriving the car park was rather disappointing. There were no spaces at all, bit of a nightmare. On arriving in the bar we were greeted by a friendly but flustered lady behind the bar. We took a seat, and shortly after drinks orders were taken. The room is... More

Came across this hotel whilst searching for somewhere for a weekend break in the Lake District - and so pleased we made the discovery. Hillthwaite Hotel is about one mile from Windermere town and close to Bowness, so perfect for exploring this area. Set high on a hilltop, the hotel offers stunning views of Lake Windermere and the surrounding fells.... More

We booked this as part of a Living Social deal. Stayed one night in one of the cosy rooms and received breakfast and a lovely 4 course evening meal. The grounds of the hotel are stunning with amazing views over the lake and towards the rolling hills. The restaurant and bar area have been decorated to a very high standard... More
