We stayed recently at the Linthwaite House Hotel as part of a weekend break on the Northern Belle. Everything was perfect - the room (22) was comfortable and well-equipped, bathroom was immaculate and spacious and the hot tub was much enjoyed too! The public spaces are delightful, with spectacular views from the light and airy conservatory. The staff were courteous... More

Comfortable, welcoming hotel in a lovely location. The establishment prides itself on offering excellent service, and the friendly staff really do make you feel that nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in a "Superior Standard" room (room 16) which was of very generous proportions and had the benefit of an adjoining dressing room / walk-in wardrobe and even a... More

The hotel was nice but not all rooms have view. The room was "preferred category" but some stuff was missing like ear cotton and vanity kit ... ect. Although it looks professional and spacious at the entrance, it was unfriendly, we have been watched by the staff, and you can't feel free setting anywhere at the lobby! Couldn't feel home,... More

We booked here on the recommendation of some dear friends and how right they were. An extremely warm, stylish and welcoming country house .... it feels like staying with friends. We had taken my ageing mother with us and our rooms were opposite each other ... A great help. The staff are very friendly, use names in most cases and... More

I highly recommend this hotel. First of all, the location is stunning: set in the midst of dense foliage, with magnificent views over the lake and the hills, and surrounded by beautiful gardens, a wonderful terrace, and excellent walking trails right from the front door, one would never guess that it is an easy mile-long walk into the town of...

It is quite hard to get to this place - take a train from London, rent a car and then drive through twisty windy roads. At the end of it is the reward - a great hotel with a view! Fair warning - it is expensive. The staff can range from courteous to reserved but overall pleasant. The grounds are... More

Well, they say you get what you pay for and that applies very appropriately to hotels. I must take you up on the hard to get to though. Only 2hrs 45m by train from London Euston, 15 minutes from Oxenholme Station to Windermere then a10 minute cab ride to Linthwaite. Why not leave the car and use the public transport?... More

My husband and I first stayed at the Linthwaite about 15 years ago and were very impressed. We returned in March this year to enjoy a weekend with friends and were not disappointed. The house is an impressive building and the interior design in all the rooms is very tasteful. Customer service is very good and the staff are well... More

Yes, 15 years is certainly a long time to leave it. But it's amazing how often this happens; couples get together have a family and we don't see them until the children are grown up. Come back sooner next time please. Regards Mike Bevans More

We stopped by for a leisurely lunch. We had a delicious and beautifully presented meal. 3 courses for £20 plus wine and coffee. Very good value. The staff were professional and friendly and we had our pre meal drinks and then our coffee in the conservatory with sweeping views over Windermere and the hills. Other guests were having attractive looking... More

We stayed five nights at this lovely hotel. The staff were very helpful, polite and accommodating. We had the dinner, bed and breakfast option and because the menu was the same each night we were offered alternatives on three evenings. The bedroom was beautiful, the bed so comfortable and the quietness afforded a really good nights sleep.

One of the Lake District's best country house hotels, but unstuffy! Great views, acres of private grounds, fishing, golf nearby, hiking, walking, extreme sports all within easy access. Great food, from fine dining to the Unstuffy Hamburger! Many wines by the glass and beers from local macro breweries. Lots of staff to pamper you and help you relax. ... more   less
