We booked a short break at Hillthwaite House to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were looking forward to taking in the wonderful Lake District countryside and some tasty meals. And we certainly weren't disappointed. We had room no. 16, which I think must have the best view in the place. At the front of the hotel, with a floor-to-ceiling bay... More

We got a fantastic deal with our breakfast, dinner and tea and scones included, it really was unbelievable value for money. All staff were extremely friendly and... More

My family and I stayed at the end of March (about 25 of us) after I had recommended this hotel for a family reunion. Sadly, it seems as though the owners have taken their eye off the ball and the service in this hotel has gone down significantly since my last excellent review. I'm not the kind of person who...

This place has a very warm cosy feel to the place the staff were excellent from back to front, we waited a while for the food but believe me it's well worth the wait. Great views from the rooms. Couldn't really fault the place. Nothing was a problem staff really attentive and friendly. Would stay again. Ian

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Hillthwaite House Hotel again. It is about 18 months since our last stay, and we do have to say that we had a thoroughly enjoyable break yet again. Our room (room 1) was excellent, the evening meals and the breakfasts never fail to be excellent quality and the selection... More

We saw another member of staff who got us the scones no problem. Once shown to the room it was nice and clean and... More
