“well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed in the hotel for two nights as it was our 35th wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the service was generally very good. The room was clean and comfortable with all of the expected amenities, but I have stayed in better equally priced hotel rooms. The leisure facilities were very good. We had a bar snack on the first evening, which was very good and the second evening we booked into the main restaurant for evening meal and the quality of the food was excellent. There are a number of very comfortable and private seating areas to chill out and have a quiet relaxing drink. The only negative note was that I discovered a long hair in my breakfast, which was reported, but when I collected a fresh breakfast the same thing occurred. This was reported to the manager who offered an immediate apology.

Despite this, I would recommend the hotel to anyone who wished to visit this part of the Lake District and would return myself in the future

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel have excellent views across Windermere

We had an excellent stay at the Low Wood which is situated between Windermere and Ambleside.

The room had a lovely view of the lake and we enjoyed an excellent massage in the hotel spa.

The food was very good, both dinner and breakfast and the staff helpful.

Room Tip: Go for the executive rooms, worth it for the view.

We stayed for 2 nights with the family, 3 kids and 6 adults. The hotel is beautifully appointed and in a great location however our room was dated and a little too far from the communal areas. The pool is great and the health club's facilities, food and drink were all excellent. We had some positive and negative service issues. Firstly one bar was loathe to get a bottle of wine from the the restaurant menu despite our sizeable order and bill. We were however able to get breakfast for our daughter after the official time and were offered coffee which was very thoughtful. Considering the standard of our room, this hotel is expensive so on balance we would probably look elsewhere before returning.

Dear Guest, Firstly I would like to thank you for your recent comments regarding your stay at Low Wood Bay for your group of 6 adults and 3 children, it was great to read that overall you enjoyed your stay.

I was disappointed to read that you had a mixed review in terms of service, there should never have been an issue providing you with a bottle of wine from the restaurant in the bar, I would like to apologise for this and assure you I will look into this matter and ensure that the same issue does not occur again. I was however pleased that we also demonstrated excellent service in that we were able to cater for the later requirements for your daughters breakfast.

Once again thank you for your comments and should you wish to visit the area again please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the hotel where I will ensure you have another enjoyable stay.

Kind Regards Michelle Croukamp, Operations Manager.

We arrived late Saturday afternoon after meandering our way over stopping off to admire the views and have a late lunch in a welcoming pub. The room was a little way from reception but perfect for the leisure club and another entrance that was easy to traverse. The food was first class - whether prime meat or fish which I love and the courses very ample - not forgetting a delicious pud.

The leisure club is small but includes a squash court, pool that serves both kids and adults but don't expect to put in the lengths to stave off that weight gain... I enjoyed a well deserved back massage and replaced the nails I had broken off while hurrying about my day to business..if only we had come sooner!

Room Tip: 278 or along that corridor places you very near the Spa and Leisure Pool and it is easy to get to th...

Have been using this hotel with my disabled daughter three or four times a year since 1999. Can't beat it. Staff cannot do enough for you, very friendly. Restaurant serves a great meal. Bar snacks good! Lounge areas very comfortable. Reception staff very efficient. Rooms usually ready early.

Room Tip: Get a lake view well worth the extra.

I booked the Lowood resort because the staff were so helpful finding a family room as need to share a room with 3 grandchildren. The booking staff were most helpful and the room perfect.

The pool & changing area was attractive & always clean. All staff were helpful courteous. The food was plentiful & good quality, with reasonably priced childrens food in each restaraunt. There were many comfortable private areas to sit, read or play quite games.

The lakeside location was very pretty with small but provate gardens down to the lake. The spa area and sports facilities looked excellent for breaks without children.

Room Tip: Call direct and discuss your requirements. I had a junior suite on two levels with two TV's. The...
