Came for afternoon tea. Left waiting at reception for at least 10 minutes, so went in search of a member of staff. On finding a member of staff and finally getting his attention we where abruptly told to find a seat. Asked said member of staff would it be possible to have our afternoon tea in the garden (lovely sunny... More

My husband and I stayed at Lindeth Howe many years ago and loved it but this time we where very disappointed. Staff on arrival not very pleasant but this did improve with the second lady who showed us to our room, room with a lake view could barely see the lake. Food reasonable although breakfast on the first morning was... More

Have just spent two nights db&b here, was a little worried that the hotel would be 'tired' and the staff unfriendly (as per other reviews...) this was not the case. The staff were fabulous, attentive without being intrusive, professional and courteous. Nothing was too much trouble for the hotel. On par with five star hotels I have previously stayed in.... More

Stayed at the Lindeth Howe on two occasions now, the last being on 7th /8th July - and it certainly wont be the last. It is relaxing and very 'homely', convenient for all amenities yet far enough out to be quiet with lovely views of Windermere (depending on room). Rooms spotless and very helpful staff. I note the comments below,... More

With tables spaced out across the lawn it was lovely to sit and enjoy the pleasant Lake District atmosphere. Tea, cakes, scones and minute sandwiches gave an air of elegance to our afternoon tea experience. Brilliant sunshine provided the icing on the cake. With a bottle of prosecco to finish with, a delightful experience.

Stayed recently at this hotel. We found the room clean, comfortable and lovely view over the garden. Food was varied and we sampled the Fine Dining. However, I agree with the comment below that the service was totally disorganised. The right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing. They need to get organised and if someone has already...

We stayed at the Lindeth Howe for two nights on 30th June and 1st July, this being our fifth or sixth stay. The hotel is very pleasant indeed, and well situated on the outskirts of Bowness to benefit from both seclusion and convenience. The room we had (the Potter Room) was spacious, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. Unfortunately, we found... More
