Just back from our 5 or 6 stay, we love this place, and are already talking when we can return. The staff are a total credit, Kip especially delightful. Food as always perfect (blue cheese mousse two evenings for me!!) wet weather so lazy times on sofas, drinks from bar and being lazy.......see you all soon I hope

We have been to Linthwaite many times over the years but had not stayed for about 4 years. We where not disappointed. We had a one night stay with friends and the service and food where both excellent. The lounge area which is split into three areas is very cosy to have a drink and chat. The views from the... More

Visited on 3/02/16 with my boyfriend and his Mum for her birthday and we couldn't fault a thing! Being foodies we have visited many restaurants and I think this was up there with one of the very best. The staff are all friendly and very accommodating, especially our waitress. A lovely Chinese lady who was happy to help with everything... More

Linthwaite is an extremely comfortable and welcoming small hotel with lovely scenic views, but what really sets it apart are the unbeatable service and Chris O'Callaghan's fabulous cooking. The fact this was our second visit in six weeks and (I think) the fourth in a year says it all really...we'll be back soon!

Service and the cooking. I am a great believer in great service and great food. Too often people just dwell on the wonderful chefs, but to me a restaurant is like a theatre; great to watch when it's well done and not just about the food. And the ambiance is important too! Thanks a million for the fine review, Mike... More

Fantastic hotel. Staff and facilities beyond compare. Food especially the taster menu is to die for. Try the Damson Twister Drink.(Damson Gin, Soda, Eldaflower) . Rooms an ideal size and very quiet. Whole hotel very clean and inviting.

I must try the Damson twister myself. Sounds good. I have tried the tasting menu (not as many times as you'd think) and it was delicious. Thanks very much indeed for the splendid review. We hope to be able to welcome you back again soon, best wishes Mike More

The Husband and I have stayed here a few times over the years, and the quality of food and service remains as good today as it was 15 years ago. There is a special atmosphere at Linthwaite that we feel privileged to know; a relaxed, friendly, yet luxurious feeling that when coupled with excellent food sets it apart from the... More

A great place to relax and use as a base for walking & seeing the Lakes. Staff were brilliant - friendly and helpful. We had a delicious evening meal and breakfast in the restaurant - good food, wine and cocktails. It's close to Windermere but well away from traffic and busyness. The hotel has a welcomingly good feel about it... More

Following the extreme weather and floods, Linthwaite was an excellent warm and dry venue. The food (we had the tasting menu with wines on the first night) was excellent clearly superior to some of the local starred establiahments. The room was well appointed and very comfortable. The staff were helpful and always had a smile on their face. We look... More

It's nice to be compared favourably with some of the starred restaurants. Chef will love it. Linthwaite is a nice cosy place to hide from the elements. And we're on a hill. But the rest of the Lakes is also open and despite the press you can still drive to Keswick albeit via the beautiful Ullswater. Come back soon, Cumbria... More

This was a last minute booking based on a favourable weather forecast (proved to be inaccurate but can't blame hotel for that!). We have been to this hotel many times before and as usual the service and ambience were excellent. We stayed in room 25 which was comfortable and enjoyed a wonderful evening meal.
