The hotel is a magnificent grand old building set in beautiful expansive gardens. Overlooks Windermere and the view is wonderful (our bedroom did not look out onto Windermere, but obviously some do). A short walk through these lovely gardens takes you to the edge of Windermere and into the local, very pretty village which is dotted with shops and restaurants.... More

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was 100% perfect! From the moment we arrived we felt like valued guests and the staff couldn't do any more to make us feel welcome! The hotel itself is beautiful and the renovation with Laura Ashley is worth every penny, from the furnishings, chandeliers, bedrooms and the dining room!... More

Superb location with beautiful views out onto the lake and walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Bowness. Every aspect of the hotel feels luxury, comfy nights sleep and lovely bathroom. Classy feel to the hotel and atmosphere in general. Perfect place for couples

Having driven past the Belsfield hundreds of times over the years we decided that following it's recent take over by Laura Ashley and a renovation rumoured to have cost several million pounds we would check it out by having lunch in the Brasserie. The hotel is in a spectacular position overlooking Bowness Bay and it should be one of the... More

Had a wonderful stay at The Belsfield Hotel. The décor was lovely, food out of this world and the service top class. It was a lovely place to stay and the staff couldn't do enough for us. We will definitely go back.

The Belsfield Hotel always had a wonderful location and views - now its rather faded interior has been transformed by stylish and elegant decor to equal the views. We stayed overnight recently and loved the Laura Ashley refurbishment and the luxury of the under-floor heated bathroom in our room. The staff were welcoming and friendly - the brasserie waiter went... More

Stayed here for 2 nights 17th & 18th November for our honeymoon. We contacted the hotel in advance to inform them we would be on honeymoon and were given a complimentary upgrade to a lake view room (room 34) which had stunning views of the lake and in which we found a card and chocolates wishing us an enjoyable stay...

We visited this hotel for an evening drink before leaving our visit of Bowness to travel home. How pleasantly surprised we were!! It's palatial design exudes class & style & holds a welcoming ambience. Chandeliers, candles, rich fabrics & comfortable sofas are all inviting touches at this hotel. Amazing picture postcard views are a huge feature & drinks in the... More

Visited the Belsfield as part of our 10th Anniversary break to the Lake District. My wife is very keen on Laura Ashley furniture and we were not disappointed by them - the hotel is what can only be described as palatial, with ornate decoration and original artworks with Laura Ashley furniture throughout the hotel's public rooms and bedrooms. We had... More
