We spent last weekend at the hotel and really couldn't fault it. Room was spacious and comfortable and the luxury of a bath was perfect after a long days walking. The hotel is a 15 min walk from town so nicely central without the hubbub. We ate in the hotel one evening and food was lovely - not massive portions... More

Our stay here was a very enjoyable experience. Hotel is beautiful and in an excellent location. Room was very well equipped. What made this hotel really special was the excellent service and delicious food. Staff were very attentive without being overbearing. Evening meals were a delight, every course very well presented. We looked forward to our stay at the hotel... More

My husband had booked a one night stay at Linthwaite House as a Birthday treat for me and a treat it certainly was! Our room (21) had its own private decked terrace, a table and two chairs and the ultimate in indulgence a hot tub for our sole use! The room was done to a very high standard, with first... More

Originally booked for afternoon tea but we decided beforehand that we should also have dinner and stay overnight.This proved to be an excellent decision, the hotel, the staff and food were all first class. We look forward to returning for a longer visit.

After visiting this past weekend for a family wedding, I would highly recommend this hotel. The rooms are lovely, surroundings are beautiful and the staff, food and service cannot be faulted. Thank you for making our stay a lovely one.

It's a pleasure. And whilst you probably didn't choose the hotel yourself because you came to the wedding, it's great that you enjoyed it so much. Hopefully we can welcome you back again soon. All good wishes, Mike B More

I am not sure why this hotel gets ANY bad reviews it is in a wonderful setting. The food is fine dining at its best and very good value. The service is superb with our needs taken care of before we even knew we needed it. Richard in the dining, bar and at breakfast was particularly helpful. Also Ahn on... More

That's a superb review thanks very much. It's nice to hear we got room service right because there are so many things which can fall short. Our team is very strong and we have a great manager in Andy. He'll be proud. And rightly. best wishes Mike Bevans More

Amazing. Nice to be compared to the Ledbury, Chef will be chuffed. I had a special birthday dinner there a couple of years ago and it was brilliant. I am also delighted that you enjoyed your Loft Suite; yes it's definitely romantic. We hope to be able to welcome you back again one day, Many thanks again, Mike More

Having looked around online for a destination to visit for afternoon tea in a beautiful area we settled on Linthwaite House; despite it being a 120 mile journey all round. It stated online that afternoon tea was served daily from 2:30 - 5:00.. no mention of needing to book or stating certain days the hotel will be holding an event... More

Well I'm sorry you had a wasted journey and that you couldn't read a substantial sign at the bottom of the drive, which clearly stated what was happening. No-one else has ever managed to not notice it before as we have several weddings a year! If it were me I'd always phone and check if I was going somewhere half... More

I don't usually write reviews but on this occasion I felt it was definitely deserved. We had afternoon tea at the hotel and the food was beautiful along with good service. More importantly, I have a severe nut allergy and I have never visited anywhere that has catered to my dietary needs better than here. I was initially asked if... More

Enjoyed a 3 night stay here over the Easter weekend, and what a fabulous stay it was! We had a lovely room with fantastic views over the grounds to Lake Windermere and the fells beyond, it was like looking at an ever changing painting! We were lucky enough to see two deer slowly walking across the grounds early on Easter... More

What's lovely about your review, apart from heaping the hotel with praise, is that you've singled out many of our wonderful team by name. They are all superb and enjoy what they do, as do the others, too numerous to mention. I am always amazed when people like yourself spend so much time to write such fabulous reviews. Keep them...
