Stayed here in February 2015 and enjoyed it so much we went back in April 2015 and had a great stay both times. The rooms are clean and comfortable with nice big beds and a new bathroom it seemed. Food in the restaurant who was superb on both occasions and the service was good too. We had the breakfast the... More

We spent two nights on a DBB basis at a very good rate agreed direct with the hotel. We had a cosy room, which was very clean and pleasantly furnished, with everything we needed to be comfortable during a short stay. We didn't get the lovely view that comes with the occasion rooms, but we didn't expect to - the... More

.. Hillthwaite House Hotel is on a hill. A very steep one at that, so if youre hoping to walk to the lakeside, you will need to be very able. Beautiful hotel. Beautiful views... with an opportunity to swim, or take a sauna or steam. There are two things that set this hotel apart for me personally 1) the very... More

Novel and interesting combinations.Lovely presentation of everything. Superb pastry chef. I have a problem with garlic and each day i was told which dishes were ok for me and/or how... More

Very friendly staff but a few hiccups in the restaurant every day. Food excellent but service poor although to be fair I overheard a remark by the manager that they were all very new. Not quite a team yet. Not good to hear staff complaining about each other but as I said they are a new team. As a hotel... More

Had the prosecco afternoon tea and a swim here. The swimming was nice, we had the place to ourselves and the pool was a good temperature. Sauna nice too. My only criticism would be they need a hairdryer in the changing room and also someone needs to pop in now and again to clean the changing room floor. The prosecco... More

Had a wonderful meal in the beautiful Poets Bar & Lounge. Not only was the service friendly and attentive but the food was excellent throughout all the courses, with very flavoursome dishes, all beautifully presented. We will definitely be back - hopefully on many occasions.

On our arrival we were greeted by very welcoming and happy reception staff who after checking us in showed us to... More

I have just spent 2 nights in this hotel in Room 31. It was a lovely break, with spectacular views, great food and excellent service. However, there were a few things lacking in the room to bring this stay to the highest level: Room 31 overlooks a small courtyard which was dirty and untidy; it would greatly benefit from a... More
