We did not stay here as they were sold out. However we visited for Dinner. What an Evening! The hotel is in lovely setting, the food as well as service both are impeccable. Of course it is a bit expensive but we were not at all disappointed. Infact we found excellent value for money. We would definitely visit again to... More

This establishment is ideal for us! Every aspect is wonderful and the staff from top to bottom could not be more friendly and helpful! We have visited numerous hotels in the UK, and while a few have been more opulent none have ticked the boxes like LINTHWAITE. My wife was thrilled when I booked YET AGAIN for her recent birthday...

Lovely elegant building with distant views of Windermere and the Coniston fells. Decor and furnishings are excellent, and the ambience is warm and welcoming. Our room was fitted out to a very high standard, and we had a hot tub outside. The food was generally very good, although I was surprised that the restaurant had three and not two AA... More

Umm, no excuses, we obviously fell down on your stay, so humble apologies. As you can see from the many reviews on this site this is not the standard we like to operate at and I know Andy our manager will be asking some folk difficult questions. We aim for perfection but this sounded second rate. We will endeavour to... More

The Linthwaite empathetically combines the traditional with the modern. We have now returned 6 times. The staff are very friendly and the food outstanding. The position hosts panoramic views over Lake Windermere. Some nice short garden walks too with a delightful tarn. What we enjoy the most is the privacy and relaxed ambience. Its fairly expensive so we never stay... More

Thanks for the fine review. No, we are not cheap, but nor are Mercedes! Like a Merc we try to provide solid reliable high quality service. And that costs money! A friend told me recently of a new hotel in London, not expensive, where he never had any contact with a human being. We believe we are in the hospitality... More

I booked this place on the cuff, on a business trip to the area and was recommended so I had no idea what to expect and my expectations are high.

Wow, thanks very much. As a seasoned hotel guest it gets more difficult for the hotels as standards need to go up all the time. One of the ways we have achieved the standards is we talk to our guests and are proud of our independence. Although we have owned Linthwaite for almost 24 years, we have been involved running...

Recently stayed for two nights including breakfast and dinner celebrating our wedding anniversary. We have stayed at this hotel on several previous occasions and it never fails to deliver. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a superior standard bedroom (Room 32) and have no complains about standard, cleanliness and decor. First evening we decided to have the eight course taster... More

We arrived lunch time in glorious sunshine. The hotel staff made us feel very welcome and we had a a drink whilst waiting for our room in the lounge, at looking down on Lake Windermere with the surrounding mountains dusted with snow stunning views! Afternoon tea was delicious with sandwiches, scones cakes and buns. The room was very excellent and... More

One of the great things about the UK, despite what some foreigners may say, is different experience you have with British meals. Breakfast, very important, starts the day; lunch, long and slow or quick and on the move; afternoon tea, to be savoured whatever you have; and then dinner, which can be all sort of wonderful things. Of course the... More

We stayed here last weekend (just 1 night) and what a little gem.... tucked away just outside the town of Bowness and nestled in woodland and overlooking the lake it is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of life! Andy and his staff were extremely attentive, nothing was too much effort for them. We had a lovely meal... More

A very friendly and professionally run hotel. Rooms spotlessly clean. Lovely helpful staff nothing too much trouble. The breakfasts and dinners exceptional, especially the tasting menu with wines. Wonderful setting - highly recommended.

This is a very special hotel. Luxurious and peaceful. Wonderful location, with a view over the lake and the fells. The food is just superb, and the staff are attentive and friendly, but not obsequious. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Our room (21) was fantastic, and had a hot tub outside on our balcony.
