We enjoyed a fab 2 night stay on a travelzoo package. We upgraded to the potter room which was lovely, just missing a bath which would have made a great room fabulous! Dinner was AMAZING! Cannot fault it at all. Breakfast was good and the staff were all very friendly. We took a lovely stroll into town, through the beautiful... More

4th stay at this hotel - can't fault it! The staff were lovely, (not sure who other reviewers were met by at reception - as they were not happy)! However, the lovely Marta is a gem! She dealt with our Travelzoo telephone booking very efficiently. The dinner was excellent as was the breakfast. We had a beautiful room - huge,... More

Sadly we only spent one night here, as it was a lovely hotel in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of Bowness. The hotel had a lovely relaxed atmosphere which was enhanced by the friendly staff. Our room was clean, spacious and sympathetically decorated. Dinner was superb and breakfast spot on. We enjoyed a lovely walk through... More

Stayed here for a weekend of Mountain Biking. Arrived early Friday and requested somewhere to store the bikes, the staff soon organised a secure place and took them from my car. Lovely historic old house with great views and surroundings. Dining areas and facilities top notch.

We recently spent three nights at Lindeth Howe to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, having stayed there on our honeymoon all those years ago. The hotel has obviously changed over the years, although it still retains its charm and comfortable restful setting. We booked a suite and was more than happy with the room, it was very spacious, well appointed... More

We have stayed here a couple of times and so it was a natural to complete our weeks tour of Scotland on the way home. Again the service and food were excellent and the rooms we had were very comfortable. The same relaxed atmosphere was present and we happily chilled out here and had a wonderful meal and slow start... More

Had a wonderful break at The Lindeth Howe, cannot fault anything. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, and the food was of excellent quality. We had afternoon tea when we checked in and a five course evening meal. The breakfast the following morning was equally good. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a break in the Lake District.

Cannot fault either the hotel, service or food. As far as we were concerned it was one of the best short breaks we have had. We started with afternoon tea in the garden and then had a walk into Bowness. We followed this with a swim in the pool to build up an appetite for our meal in the evening.... More

My husband and I stayed here for part of the England/Scotland trip we took for our 30th wedding anniversary. I found it to be absolutely charming. We had an upper room that was large and spacious. The view was quite lovely, although it was a little foggy some of the time. We spent three nights here, with dinner and breakfast... More
