“A little dream come true”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Attended the Firework display at the Lindeth Howe on 5th November 2012 but didnt stay overnight as we had pre booked elsewhere. It was so spectacular an event that I promised myself I would return this year and stay in the Hotel to make a special occasion of it. I remember looking up at the rooms overlooking the firework display and thinking how wonderful it would be to stay in one of those but felt that they would probably be booked. I couldnt believe my luck after booking a vgv for money room with olo hotels that my dream had come true when they showed me into my room overlooking the garden and the firework display. We were made really welcome and the room was spotlessly clean and lovely and warm. Nice breakfast in the morning served by lovely young ladies. What a treat. Will be booking room ? next year sorry cant say in case you beat me to it. Thankyou all at this most wonderful beautiful Hotel in stunning position.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

A two day stay here was thoroughly enjoyed. The helpful staff gave us a warm welcome and the room was spotless and well appointed although a loose light fitting wobbled when someone walked around in the room above. WiFi did not work in the room as advertised but we were able to connect in the cosy lounge area.

We had dinner in the main restaurant. Food was for the most part first rate, the scallops beautifully prepared and the lamb cooked to perfection. The duck was cooked exactly as ordered and the accompanying garnishes entirely appropriate. Dessert of Tarte Tatin was not a success however as it had been incorrectly prepared.

Breakfasts were delicious, hot and tasty. Coffee however was too strong for our taste. Service in the dining room in the evening could be improved by some more hands on direction but the overall experience at the hotel was very good.

What more can I say other than from the moment we arrived to the minute we departed we were well looked after by the friendly and professional team at Lindeth Howe.

On arrival we were greeted with a very warm welcome, the rooms were not quite ready as we had arrived a couple of hours early however this didnt stop us enjoying a very nice lunch with coffee.

We were allocated a delux room with a view of the lake (107), the room was great, a nice size, very well presented with superb views.

We stayed on a DBB basis and my wife and I decided to go for the taster menu - we made a very good. We have stayed before at Lindeth however my wife and I both agreed the food was even better than the last visit and it was excellent then.

Breakfast was very nice with a good choice and again as with our evening meal the service was superb (and friendly).

All in all despite terrible weather we had a great weekend break made all the better by the staff at the Lindeth Howe.

We will definitely be back to stay soon.

Room Tip: Couple go for room 107 if you can, great view and a nice size room

We stayed at Lindeth Howe overnight on a Travelzoo voucher, which was excellent vfm. Afternoon tea on arrival, 3-course dinner, bed and breakfast. The hotel itself is homely and comfortable...makes you want to stay indoors and hunker down! We were greeted warmly and offered afternoon tea as our room wasn't quite ready. The set menu included a hazelnut brownie and we asked for a nut-free alternative, which we did manage to get but were made to feel a bit of a nuisance.
The room itself was very pleasant; on the small side but warm and comfy. Filter coffee and hot chocolate were a nice touch and were very welcome. The evening meal was very good and the service excellent. After dinner drinks were taken in one of the many sitting areas. This is where I think the Lindeth Howe has missed a trick: each sitting room/area was welcoming and filled with comfy furniture but only one had an open log fire; the others were imitation gas and there was one electric.
Breakfast the following morning was excellent, as was the service.
All in all, a lovely short break and good value for money. Don't go expecting a 'grand' house; Lindeth Howe is more of a sumptuous country home.

Previous reviews say it all - worthy of a stay even for a couple of nights. Food excellent, dinner top end of price range for locality. Wi-FI a bit erratic on 2nd floor but other than that niggle, cant fault the hotel.

Room Tip: 203 has good views over lake, bit quirky but being at top of hotel, ideal for that extra quality and...

My Husband, myself and three other couples have just returned from a weekend visit to the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel. This visit was thoroughly enjoyed by all of us from start to finish. the staff couldn't do enough for us and were all extremely pleasant and helpful especially Liz who works on the front desk, we missed our road and she talked us through all the directions staying with us until we arrived at their front door. the rooms were lovely and and well appointed with large comfortable beds and a lovely bathroom. The meals were excellent the only small downside to them was the menu didn't vary from Friday night to Saturday night but as there was a good selection there were other things that we could choose. The Hotel is a wee bit away from the busy part of Bowness on Windermere but it is walkable if you like walking but if you don't then taxi's were on hand at a reasonable price. This is a Hotel that we, and also our friends would definitely return to if going back to that region. None of us used the spa but it also looked very nice from what we could see.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor and room 122 was a bit larger than our friends rooms, but all rooms were...
