Firstly, congratulations to the evidently hard working team at the Overwater. It is apparent how much effort goes into the running of this establishment, to keep it at its high level of service. It's hard to argue with many of the previous reviews. Location is stunning with abundant wildlife. Room 3 had nice functional bathroom, comfy bed & lovely views... More

the hotel is in beautiful surroundings we arrived to be shown to the lounge where our afternoon tea would be served, service was perfect and the crisp white linen, wonderful. There were more than enough beautifully made sandwiches and so tasty, the cream scones were so light and to die for. There were lots of cakes, fruit bread and shortbread... More

Our favourite hotel, anywhere! Lovely rooms, wonderful food, it is impossible to fault! Go for a stroll in the extensive grounds, woodpeckers, nuthatch, and red squirrel are all to be seen. There are also excellent walks in this quiet corner of the Lake District. And your dog will be warmly welcomed. It really is a perfect spot!

We have been going to this hotel for a number of years now. It is just lovely, tranquil, peaceful ambience, fantastic service: the food is to die for; it deserves all the accolades going. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We stayed in the garden room with our dog so had the advantage of a separate door to a private patio area and the gardens. We saw a red squirrel outside the window but... More

This was our second visit to Overwater Hall and we were not disappointed. Superb rooms - garden room and room 2. Fantastic attention to detail and excellent service. Super menu - a foodies paradise. Lovely countryside with no noise or light pollution. For wildlife lovers - red squirrels, deer and the odd buzzard! Just booked our next visit!

Bathrobes and full size shampoo, bath/shower gel which was also a nice suprise. Staff were very attentive, not over-powering atall. Food was very high quality and if you... More

Me and my wife have just been to Overwater Hall for the second time. We returned mainly because of the excellent food and we were not disappointed it is truly amazing. Overwater is certainly out of the way but the hosts, and staff, go out of their way to make you feel welcome. It is a very relaxing, comfortable hotel... More
