Our second time at Linthwaite this year (see previous, longer review) and the warm welcome, relaxing atmosphere and top class service were all as good as ever. The lakeland weather was doing its worst this time, which just meant more time spent in front of the fire(s) in the hotel's charming public rooms. It was particularly nice to see the... More

We have been visiting this hotel for several years and it is still outstandingly brilliant! Staff who are ultra efficient, yet invisible right until you need them. Food that is probably the best we get anywhere in the world. And a range of rooms to suit all needs and budgets. Our latest stay was in November 2014; a last minute... More

Have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions. From the moment you arrive the staff and management cannot do enough for you, very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Food is excellent and the rooms are very comfortable. This is why we return again and again. Jx

We have just returned from a two night break - our second at Linthwaite this year. Food still first class, room comfortable and spotless and staff charming. The flurry of snow made it magical! This is definitely the place to stay in the Lakes. Wonderful.

This was our first stay at the Linthwaite House Hotel and it was absolutely delightful. We were celebrating a special occasion and stayed for 2 nights; the room was spacious and very comfortable, it had a view and a balcony but the December weather precluded our using it! Our overall impression was one of very high quality, from the staff... More

Linthwaite House is located a few miles east of Bowness-on-Windermere. It's a small and charming hotel with magnificent views over Lake Windermere. Here we shared some cosy moments in front of the fireplace surrounded by English seniors. I think the typical age was 70 and my husband and I managed to lower it down slightly. We enjoyed a classic afternoon... More

We have stayed at the Linthwaite many times and this was our second visit of the year. We even recognized one of the waiters. We have reported from time to time on TripAdvisor. We sometimes receive offers. One such offer coincided with the run up to Christmas and covered dinner, bed and breakfast plus shopping vouchers. We already had a... More

I've lost track how many times we've stayed here now and Linthwaite never fails to deliver. We usually come for my birthday in November for just one child-free night with dinner and breakfast. The menu has changed slightly and they've now introduced a Tasting Menu for an extra supplement. It was amazing. Unusual flavours and beautiful presentation. As always, the... More

We have just had a perfect weekend break at Linthwaite. We had a gracious and warm welcome and were shown to our spacious and beautifully furnished room, 26... we loved having our own front door! All the staff were great - friendly and professional. Dining was very special and relaxing: new to me was the delicious smoked beetroot risotto dish... More

This was our first time at Linthwaite and we were very impressed by the level of service received. Staff always remembered your name, despite only having seen us once. The food quality was also excellent which meant we ate in the restaurant on both nights. Not a cheap break, but well worth every penny. Will be returning.

It;s great staff remember your name. I could always remember the faces from years ago but names are more difficult. Well done to Andy, our manager, and his team. Come back soon, Best wishes Mike Bevans More
