We booked directly with the hotel over the phone and they were really helpful in discussing accommodation and the available offers. The staff were extremely welcoming on arrival, with delicious tea and homemade scones served on the terrace. We had the Coleridge... More

My partner and I finished our holiday in the Lake District by treating ourselves to a night at the Hillthwaite. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by a charming receptionist who showed us to our premier room and spent the rest of the evening in luxury. The room was beautifully furnished, had wonderful views of the lakes and... More

Hotel came up to expectations. The superior room was first class with everything you could want in it. The view was beautiful. The dinner was succulent and the meat melted in your mouth. The staff were very helpful. The hotel is spotlessly clean and well maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed the tea and warm scones on arrival. All in all a... More
