This is a superb hotel in a great location just two minutes walk from the centre of Bowness. A beautiful property with stunning and tasteful decoration and a calm ambience. As there were three of us we had a family room (no. 45) which was unbelievably spacious and a huge bathroom. The staff are superb, nothing is too much trouble... More

Just spent the weekend at the Belsfield, 11 in total including 3 kids (18mths to 10) Brilliant facilities, brilliant location. Lake view rooms exquisite, family rooms ideal. Breakfast outstanding, Brasserie meal outstanding, swimming pool & gym - great. All in all a wonderful hotel, very helpful staff and would highly recommend to any traveller.

Hotel is beautifully decorated and rooms are great. However, the staff need a little more training. On check in we weren't asked if we wanted a table at the restaurant (which we did) and then we wandered around the hotel for 15 minutes trying to find our room. Nobody bothered to help or offer to help despite trying to find... More

Location is good and so is the property but as soon as you enter the reception area the problems start. Two little student desks on reception duty where you have to wait in line to be served for more time than it would take you to get on line with a telephone operator in a call centre to access your....social...

We stayed for my wife's birthday and it was the perfect choice. The room we had chosen was a suite at the front of the hotel overlooking the hotel's grounds and Bowness Lake. Completely ideal we didn't want to leave! An excellent 2 nights in March, eating in the Brasserie the first night and the restaurant the second night. The... More

My wife and I stayed here midweek in May, I paid an upgrade for a Lake view room, very well worth it. Superb views as the hotel occupies a unique elevated position and the hotel is stylishly decorated throughout. The bedrooms are particularly well presented, with comfortable beds and nicely furnished. We were fortunate in also having a loo with... More

I booked this hotel last September for a one night stay for my birthday. Arrival - We arrived early at the hotel 10.30am and asked if we could use their car park before checking in (we wanted to go kayaking). This was not an issue. We then went out on the lake, took our kayaks out at the rowing boats... More

The hotel is superbly situated. The staff are welcoming and I had a beautiful room, much larger than expected. I was visiting on business and needed to have dinner with colleagues at another local hotel. I returned through the gardens at 1am with a male colleague who was also staying to find that we had been locked out. We tried... More
