I had stayed for two nights. 28,29/08/2015. When I checked in the hotel, I found the staff didn't know anything about the local area. My bedroom was dirty and there was dust all over the lamp and tea set tray.It looked like the hadn't clean the place for an entire month. Even though I complained my issues to the staff... More

On arrival we struggled to find a parking space due to christening party taking place. we commented on the views and said how lovely it will be to sit in the garden overlooking the lake, only to be told that the christening party are out there at the moment but we should be able to go out there later!!

Simply sublime, we could not have imagined a more perfect venue for our wedding day, back in March this year. The staff were exceptional, each room had its own beautiful interior and the wedding packages were far superior to any others around. The food is beautiful and there really was nothing quite like a wedding breakfast looking over the scenic... More

Nice sunny day' had to request the table to be cleared from previous diners. Had the burger priced at £14.95. A little too pink for my liking, the bun compensated as a little burned. It's a shame eaten there a while ago and it was nice. Was looking forward to making this a regular having a boat on Windermere, however... More

We stayed here for a wedding in July. They only had a suite available and as it was also our anniversary we decided to treat ourselves. Well, talk about WOW factor!. It was amazing! Lake view, more pillows than you could shake a stick at, two TVs, which we never watched, only stayed one night. Radio, remote controlled toilet, yes... More

After waiting for 15min to order drinks we had to leave. No one came to serve us, although the brasserie/bar area was about half occupied. The missed opportunity for your business as well as the Laura Ashley company is not to be estimated. We came to have the girls see how an LA type interior design works. We are longtime... More

We got married at the hotel and can honestly say the staff all genuinely care and cannot do enough for guests to ensure they leave delighted. Rooms are gorgeous and the decor throughout is stunning. Classy without being pretentious! Food is beautiful. Front desk staff are outstanding and Monty deserves particular praise. Georgina, Dean and Nathan also warrant special mentions... More

Stayed here Sunday night as an extension to our weekend away in the lakes. Beautiful hotel with incredible views and good food. However the service lacked a bit of sparkle, reception staff seemed to be inexperienced and check in wasn't the smoothest. Also bar service a little slow. The room that I stayed in with my husband and toddler wa... More

We stayed, along with some friends, at the Belsfield for one night, as part of a weekend break to the Lakes. First impressions were very good: the location excellent, the gardens well maintained, the building smartly decorated and the views over Windermere, lovely. On check in we were dealt with by a friendly reception team and our room (37) on... More

We stayed here with our 18 month old daughter and I must admit when we first arrived I was worried that this may not be the most family friendly hotel. How wrong could I be....
