Beautiful venue. Fantastic views. Food was lovely, however, the menus on line had more choices. We had lunch and was only given an a la carte menus. For 6 people it came to just over £400. A little expensive for lunch. A bit naughty of the venue not to give choices. Wouldn’t have minded if it was dinner and it was a special occasion.

In these strange COVID times we had a fabulous three night stay after the disappointment of a cancelled trip to Portugal. Rooms - lodge room with unbelievable views over lake Windermere. This is a country house hotel so the rooms are in character - it isn’t a new build in Dubai and all the better for it in our opinion - quirky it is but also spacious and comfortable. Room service is quick and super friendly for drinks on your private patio with no better view anywhere. Food - fantastic 3 course meals every night and Ross and his brigade produce exquisite and surprising delights. May not be starred but it won’t be long again. Hotel team - led by Tom the GM and a shining example to all - simply cannot praise his efforts enough and all whilst with a new team that makes up for the difficulties in getting to full complement due to COVID/brexit through shear force of will - with a smile and no stress whatever is thrown at them. Eddie on the bar, Ross and team in the kitchen and all the team waiting on whatever you want with total calm at any time of day. Even the owner has their sleeves rolled up. There is a vision for this place which will no doubt wow in time - but no matter - we would return in a heartbeat regardless. Tip - be patient and this place will leave you happier than when you arrived.

The hotel ensure our wedding truly was a weekend to remember. Tom and the team worked tirelessly for the whole time to ensure it was perfect. It was a great relaxed atmosphere enjoyed by all! Ross put on an amazing 5 course meal too which was cooked perfectly. The view of the lake is stunning, every terraced area we sat on had the amazing view. All the rooms were amazing, the hotel making sure everyone had a lake view. Finishing our wedding night in the hot tub under the stars in the early hours was incredible.

Recently stayed at Holbeck Ghyll Hotel for a much needed break . From the moment we arrived we were made most welcome by Tom the Manager and his team. Nothing was too much trouble. We had fabulous cocktails on arrival made by Lynn whilst we relaxed enjoying the views of Lake Windermere. We booked in for the taster menu and it was fantastic thank you to the chef and his team. Jonathan our waiter made us feel totally spoilt
