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

Have just got home from an overnight break at Lindeth Howe. What a lovely hotel. Set in beautiful gardens with lovely trees through which you get glimpse of Lake Windermere. Very peaceful and serene. The reception staff were excellent and the waiting on staff good. The room had a view over the lake, was beautifully decorated, very clean and extremely... More

We have just arrived back from 3 nights at Lindeth Howe after our wedding on Saturday. As soon as we arrived we made to feel very special by all the staff. Our room was upgraded to a beautiful double at the top of the house with the most amazing views of the lake. Throughout our stay the staff were attentive... More

This is our second visit to this hotel. We had a two night break which included dinner and breakfast which was excellent value. The hotel is a good example of what you would expect from a country house hotel. The rooms are nice and public areas well furnished and very welcoming. It was possible to see Lake Windermere from our... More

We have just returned from a family weekend away to celebrate our parents Golden Wedding anniversary at Lindeth Howe and we could not be happier. Our party of 12 contained 2 young children and as such we were provided with a private dining room given that children under 7 are not allowed in the the main dining room of an... More

Lovely hotel. Stayed in the Potter Room, glorious views of beautiful gardens and Lake Windermere in the distance. Very comfortable room and spotlessly clean. Little welcomed extras - fridge and ice box filled up each evening. Restaurant superb, lovely food (I'm vegetarian) evening meal a must and breakfasts - well, spoilt for choice.

Lovely setting, room and staff. My husband and I had a 2 night break here which included dinner, bed and breakfast. It was so relaxing, beautiful grounds and overall an excellent standard of care and service. I loved the food and the attention to detail by the very professional, but friendly restaurant and bar staff. Enjoyed using the pool and... More

Stayed one night end if May. Paid £130 for one night. Hotel has small cosy lounges with open fires with sloping gardens to stroll around. Beware with small children as ponds are up to 2 metres dip. Room good size and clean. Corridors look tired could do with makeover. Didn't stay for dinner as £46 each for two courses seemed... More

We were given a voucher for 2 nights stay, including dinner, and what a wonderful weekend we had. We stayed in a beautiful suite overlooking the gardens and the lake. What a pleasure to open our curtains to such a fantastic view each morning. Our room was immaculately clean and very well equipped, as was the whole hotel. The word... More
