“Definitely worth it for the hot tubs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We stayed in the Iris suite, which was £220 for the night. The hot tub was the main draw to this hotel, and we were not disappointed. On arrival the staff at Reception were very helpful and welcoming and this continued through our stay. The room itself was very pleasant and the hot tub was lovely. There were no faults with the standard of cleanliness and the room, which was very well presented. The box of chocolates and biscuits on the pillows was a nice touch. The Internet TV and blue ray dvd player were also a nice touch and the whole hotel was finished and presented to a high standard. Although we did not have time to make use of the pool or spa, it did look very nice and relaxing when we were shown round. Breakfast was very nice, we both had the cooked breakfast and all the produce appeared to be that of a high quality.

My critiques would be that the spa bath was incredibly underwhelming, it was not really deep enough and was very uncomfortable to sit in. However, the hot tub and shower/steam room made up for this so it wasn't much of an issue. Slippers would have been a nice addition to the room to accompany the robes that were provided as the decking by the hot tub was very uncomfortable on your feet. The rules about not being able to use the hot tub after 10:30 were a shame, but I understand that this is due to noise and the hot tubs being cleaned, but it would have been nice to sit in it at night. Although the duvet was very comfortable and soft it was far too thick for July and we were both boiling with it on.

Overall we had a lovely stay and thoroughly enjoyed the luxurious feel that this hotel offered. The standard of customer service was very high and all the staff were welcoming and polite and seemed genuinely happy to help. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing (and romantic) weekend away.

My husband booked this as a surprise for my 50th birthday. We stayed in the "Love Nest Cabin" for 3 nights. It is a beautfigul lodge and very private. The bathroom was absolutely stunning with twin sinks, double jacuzzi bath with tv and shower which doubled up as a steam room - what more could one wish for! The bed was very comfortable and the the room beautifully decorated. The private decking area was well equipped with two sun loungers, swing seat, hammock and a hot tub. It was an amazing and relaxing break. The swimming pool area is also well worth a visit. The staff were very helpful, friendly and extremely polite - nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was declicious. An array of cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurts, smoothie, juices, bucks fizz, unlimited toast and a freshly cooked breakfast made to order. A great start to the day. For a special occasion this hotel is a must and I would definitely stay here again. Thank you all for a memorable birthday.

Room Tip: A room with its own outdoor hot tub is a must for that special occasion

My boyfriend and i celebrated our 1 year anniversary at this hotel. on monday evening, the grounds and surroudings are beautiful and the staff are very friendly. the lady who checked us in (sorry i am unsure of her name) was extremely pleasant, helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her. being a hotel receptionist myself these small points matter and she was amazing at her job.
we loved our room and all the little extras and loved loved loved the outside hot tub, if i had one small issue it would just be that the room which we was in (room 10) was very close to the reception and lacked privacy slightly but this did not affect our stay and i would definately recommend this hotel and staff to all my friends. also alcoholic drinks are very reasonably priced which is always nice for a high standard hotel.

we had a fantastic time and a brilliant one year anniversary so thank you

Room Tip: if you want a gorgeous romantic room choose the love suite room 10 if you dont mind being close to r...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay.

We are so pleased that you chose us to celebrate you 1st Anniversary and that you loved the room and the facilities.

We have passed on your comments to the staff and she was pleased that she could have been of help to you.

Regarding the room being so close to reception we have fitted this room with a double door on the room so as to make it private and there is no disturbance from the reception area and to make it private for the guests.

Thank you again for the great review and we look forward to welcoming you back soon

My husband booked this as a surprise for me as a birthday present. On arriving the hotel does not have the wow factor and do not put off by the reception area. It is a beautiful place, very quiet and relaxing. The staff were very helpful and extremely polite and willing to help and assist if you needed them to. We stayed in the "Love Nest" cabin. It had an outdoor hot tub, jacuzzi bath, steam room and shower. It was perfect, very romantic and extremely relaxing. Would highly recommend. The only one recommendation I would make is the use of a fridge in the lodge would be great. We had to go to reception to ask for a bucket of ice, which was no problem but a fridge would solve this. The weather was fantastic so this really made the holiday.

Room Tip: The lodge is definately worth paying the extra for

The most amazing relaxing place ever. We had the Aphrodite Cabin which was beautiful. Very private and secluded. Hot tub, steam shower and spa bath all fantastic. Food amazing and breakfast in our room on the decking in the sunshine is the best way to start your day followed by a dip back in the hot tub. I cannot fault this place. I will defiantly be returning. A perfect romantic treat.

The hotel was really nice, but extremely over priced for where it is.
It took us 20 minutes to walk into Bowness and some of the roads had no pavement, so we had to walk on the road.
There were restrictions of when we could use the hot tub and Jacuzzi bath (for other guests benefits, we appreciate this).
But for £240 per night, we won't be returning.

We stayed at the aphrodites lodge for 2 nights in June and after some trepidation that the place couldn't be as good as the photos suggested, I was thrilled that the pictures didn't do it justice. This place is an amazing retreat, a welcome escape from real life.
We had the Iris suite which was immaculate. I still can't get over how big the bathroom was! The spa bath and outdoor hot tub were a real treat. The staff were very helpful and friendly which always makes a place extra special. Breakfast was fantastic, the prosecco is a nice touch.
All in all a fantastic place and great value for money when compared to other places offering similar facilities. We are already planning our next visit :)
