“Luxury stay in a beautiful location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

My boyfriends and I stayed in one of the luxury rooms as a bit of a treat to relax. The room was amazing, double jaccuzzi bath and large bed. The room was exactly as it looked on thewebsite and it was clean and to an excellent standard. On arrival we were made to feel really welcome and the hotel had a lovely peaceful atmosphere. We were told we could use the swimming pool in a spa hotel nearby and did this with ease. The location of Applegarth is perfect, only a few steps away from the shops and the restaurants of Bowness.
The food was excellent quality, we stayed on a bed and breakfast basis, the breakfast was piping hot and served to order. We chatted with the owner as we checked out and got to find out some plans for the hotel for the future. Soon to have it's own pool onsite and other lovely accomodation planned.
The website is great for advising what is in each room, but just phone the hotel as they are happy to help.

Room Tip: All are great. I stayed in room 17, it is downstairs and the bath is quite high to get into, but the...

Short stay with last minute booking all sorted quickly and efficiently. The website is really good, because you can view the rooms individually. One of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. The hotel is a Victorian property, which has been cleverly and carefully refurbished to keep original features blended in with modern luxuries. The room we were in was spotlessly clean, comfortable and had been beautifully decorated and fitted out, with a top of the range bathroom. The views to the rear of the hotel are fantastic and eating dinner in the lovely restaurant whilst watching the sun set over the Langdale Fells is a bit special!

The location in the centre of town (but down a quiter side street) is perfect for pottering around Windermere or going off to explore the beautiful lakes.

The owners Alan and Suzanne are friendly and attentive and make sure your stay is perfect. The food is excellent and good value and it's worth dining there even if you are not staying in the hotel.

A great short break and highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at Applegarth for a few days away from our children. The room was very pretty, the breakfast was a very lovely and traditional English breakfast, and the evening meals were delicious! I also really liked the décor, and the owners were very sweet. Two other bonuses - no children allowed meant we could eat in utter peace. Fantastic! And, we were able to get a free pass into a spa in Windermere. The spa was quite lovely, although it was somewhat tricky to get to. It was really more out of the way than we'd have liked. One negative was we were used to having at least a fan or something that could control the temperature in the room. While we were there, it was quite warm. Leaving the window open caused us to hear all kinds of birds. Lovely, but not really sleep-inspiring. Also, for the price, we were not as impressed as I had hoped to be. We very likely will not be returning to stay, but it was certainly a nice stop over for the one time.

Room Tip: The Superior suites were very nice.

So pleased you enjoyed dining with us and thank you for your kind comments. We were sorry to hear you found the Spa difficult to find. Although the Spa is a 3 minute drive away or a 20 minute stroll it is by far the best in the area and we are delighted to have been invited to join enabling our Guests to enjoy the luxury facilities on offer. Knowing you come from America where air conditioning comes as standard we have to admit that it is a very rare occurance in the Lake Distirict where a fan or air conditioning becomes necessary. If you had felt your room was a little warm and the bird song annoying I'm sure we could have done something to help if you had only asked.

My husband booked us into this hotel for a two night stay from the 27th to 29th May to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We stayed in room 9. It is an amazing room with a gorgeous four poster bed and massive bathroom. We had dinner both nights and thoroughly enjoyed everything we ate! Great central location with a lovely 'rustic' theme. Would recommend to anyone and would definitely go back. Thanks Applegarth Villa!!

So pleased you enjoyed your stay. It is often a suprise to guests that we have such lovely views to the rear of the building with a fabulous terrace for pre dinner drinks yet step out of our front door and you are a stones throw away from the heart of Windermere Village. We are very lucky to enjoy such a great location

This hotel came highly recommended by friends... we weren't disappointed. We had room 17 which was fabulous, attention to detail was second to none. The food in the restaurant was first class as was the care and attention of the owners, their family and staff. Will be going back without a doubt. Thank you Applegarth for a lovely stay.
