Plenty of hot water. We dined in for the two evenings. On the first night the Lancashire hotpot was excellent as was our starter. We ordered... More

Two friends and my wife and I have stayed at the Belsfield for a few years now over the August Bank holiday period. Since last year, this hotel has been taken over by Laura Ashley and the interior has been updated to a high standard. Despite an issue when checking in (for the second year running) which, at present, we're... More

The staff seem to have their noses in the air now and walk about as though they are doing you a favour if they attend to you.... More

First the good, and there is a lot to commend. The hotel is perfectly located overlooking Bowness and the lake. The food at breakfast and in the brasserie at night was very good indeed. The staff are friendly and efficient and the refurbished rooms have beautiful decor and amenities. Just not quite got it right yet. But two of the... More

Booked a one night stay. 2 rooms. Same price. Room 23 - no view, cramped. Room 20 - lake view, spacious. Check In from 3pm - Room 20 not available until 4.30, disappointing, but reception offered free cream tea to compensate :0). Breakfast room had the wow factor with great views and good buffet. Evening options limited. Works still ongoing,... More

This hotel is fantastic. There was a bit of a mix up with our room due to renovation. We were just expecting a double room so when we checked in we was delighted to be upgraded to a suite with a lake view and a bottle of wine waiting for us in the room. The staff could not do enough... More
