I would highly recommend anyone visiting Bowness to try the afternoon tea selection at this newly refurbished hotel. They offer a great selection of teas, sandwiches and cakes including an impressive vegetarian option to choose from. I will definitely be returning :)

From the moment I saw this hotel 10 years ago I have wanted to visit. It lived up the expectations. The staff made me feel like a princess. The surroundings where amazing and the decor beautiful. What a view.

My sister and I stayed here recently. From the moment we pulled up our experience was great. Our GPS unit had a little trouble finding the exact location, but next time we would input the post code instead of the address as this has proved more reliable. When we arrived we were met by a very friendly young man who... More

We stayed here for 7 nights and were quiet disappointed. We were told that our room would be ready at 3pm so after traveling 420 miles from Cornwall were very alarmed that our room wouldn't be ready until nearer 3.30. We were also told on booking that there were no spa facilities but there was a great swimming pool. All... More

We would like to thank the staff at the Belsfield for making our daughters dream of a fairy tale wedding come true. The hotel is truly beautiful, all of our guests commented on the gorgeous rooms and the helpful staff. We arrived at 1.30 on Saturday 4th October 2014 to a drinks reception followed by the wedding breakfast in the... More

The Belsfield sits in a stunning location and the glass house reception is inspired and the Laura Ashley makeover is fabulous. We were on a special deal so didn't expect a lake view but the standard room was very comfortable, attractive and clean. The restaurants and small lounges faced the lake so you still could take advantage of the amazing... More

We stayed here last week, it was beautiful, lake view room is a must. Breakfast was great. The room was decorated really well, although thevthrow had a stain of some kind on it. Other than that I have no probkem staying here again...pricey but worth the money for a special occassion. Will stay again.

I was extremely disappointed when we arrived to be told our friends had checked in and been give an upgrade to a suite. We were told we would have to wait until 3pm... More
