We're actually still at the lovely and grande Hotel Belsfield. It is stunning in every way from the grounds to the view to the softly soothing Laura Ashley elegance. The food is fine and our room is pristine and comfy. What is surprisingly lacking in a property such as this is any sense of warm and welcoming guest service. In... More

While a beautiful hotel, numerous issues arose on our stay. It was very hot in our room. If you're staying summertime, be aware that the top floor or rooms facing the water will be hot, and therefore tough to sleep in. Water wasn't hot in the morning for a shower, or even warm. Wife was late for breakfast because of... More

Dear Scott S, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. I was pleased to hear that you thought the hotel was beautiful, though I'm obviously very disappointed that you cut your stay with us short. We worked incredibly hard, into the small hours of the morning, to try to resolve the problem with our boiler which had a burned out... More

We spent one night at this hotel. While the grounds and common areas look impressive, the rooms were a bit small. We wanted a lake view so they put us in room 68 on the top floor. There is no AC and with summer temps being rather warm, this upper level was very hot. The window only open about 6"... More

Dear Kim H, Thank you for your recent review on Tripadvisor. I was sorry to read your comments about our hotel and that you are unable to recommend it. We often receive very kind feedback, so it was disappointing to hear your views. Obviously the hotel is very old, dating back to 1845, so the internal space is very much... More

It is a shame that a great location and building is wasted by poor management and customer service. If the most expensive, lake view suite has an empty fridge do I need to say more? The person at the check-in was fairly inexperienced and unsure of what he was doing. The room was fairly good if you like Laura Ashley... More

We have just returned from an overnight stay at The Belsfield. The hotel itself is fantastic and perfectly situated for views over Windermere. The staff on reception were excellent and the service could not be faulted. When we went to our room we were pleasantly surprised to see that we had a view of the lake which was fantastic. We...

This was the 2nd part of a birthday gift. We had been to this hotel before it went under the name of Laura Ashley . So we were very interested to see how it had changed. Wow how the interior has changed. Every single room has been refurbished and to a very high standard. We arrived well before check in... More

Hotel in fantastic location, perched slightly above Bowness with clear views down the lake. It has recently been rebuilt and refurbished to a very high standard using Laura Ashley decorations and fabrics. Publc rooms overlooking lake with large picture windows, lovely furnishing are very pleasant and relaxing. Bedroom in annexe block was compact but very well fitted, clean and fresh... More

My wife booked afternoon tea here for 4 adults as an alternative to other hotels weve used in the past. It worked very well. Good parking, excellent staff. Immaculate sitting room with window table overlooking the lake. Afternoon tea was served without fuss, on perfectly clean pristine crockery and cutlery. The whole experience was faultless regarding everything. Only thing to... More
