We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room (27) had an extremely comfortable bed and the wallcoverings, headboard, curtains etc were all of very high quality. The bathroom was a bit tired but everything was spotless and perfectly adequate. Staff were all extremely pleasant and welcoming, from desk to dining room to bar and to cleaning... More

2nd visit to this hotel after recent refurbishment. The room and en suite were immaculate with quality décor. We paid slightly more for a classic double with lake view, worth every penny. The bar, public area and restaurant have all been refurbished/decorated which has vastly improved the hotel. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food and service were... More

Took the Missus to Hilltwaithe House Hotel, after reading positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Our stay there was perfect; the room was immaculate, food absolutely gorgeous - exceeding expectation, had awesome views whilst enjoying breakfast, and excellent service. The snow on the the mountains made it even more stunning. Although it is 3* rated, it felt much better. Highly recommended.... More

Nice little pool, sauna, (steamroom temporarily o/a but...); comfortable, attractive and very clean rooms; lovely staff; delectable food. The only things that weren't quite up to the mark were The timer on... More

I stayed at the Hillthwaite with my partner Saturday and Sunday for his birthday. We stayed in The Dequincy Suite which is room 245. We arrived very early on the Saturday and were greeted with a warm reception and the offer to take our bags as our room wasn't ready. We had a coffee by the lovely open fire in... More
