We had a lovely day relaxing, being pampered and enjoying the amazing view. The ladies in the Spa were superb and afternoon tea was lovely. Service was very good. Will definitely go back - hopefully for an overnight stay.

Arrived. Raining. Greeted and made very welcome. Rooms clean and exactly what was expected in a country house hotel. Plenty of character and quirks. My parents in Mrs Tiggywinkle. Clean and excellent. Staff excellent and helpful. Food brilliant although not enough for a trencherman. I have stayed in 4 and 5 stars far worse than this hotel without the stunning... More

We stayed for a weekend two night break with food staying in a superior room and we were disappointed by many aspects of our stay. We did not feel that Holbeck Ghyll reached our expectations of a Michelin Star rated venue. Judging by the cars parked around the entrance the clientele were generally not averse to throwing money around. I... More

Have just come back from 2 nights at Holbeck Ghyll for my birthday and, especially in light of some recent negative reviews, wanted to share what a fantastic time we had. We stayed in a superior room which was beautifully appointed with a fantastic bathroom ,especially the shower (great water pressure!) and had lovely touches including large, white fluffy towels...

Holbeck Ghyll overlooks Windermere and has stunning views. This is an ideal place for a romantic get away but may not be the best option for a family with young children. Hopefully with a few tips you can see if Holbeck is the best choice for you and you will have a great stay too. There are a few niggles... More

First Impression - Overall our first impressions were good, we were greeted professionally by the reception staff, given a brief tour of the hotel and promptly shown to our room. Our Room - We were staying in the Mrs Tiggy Winkle suite, a spacious room with fabulous views over the fells and lake. Unfortunately upon closer inspection the room was... More

Thank you to all at Holbeck Ghyll for making our whole stay so perfect. The staff were really helpful and made us feel special from the outset. They looked after us for our wedding there on the 29th July and made sure the whole event ran smoothly. The Potter Suite was perfect as was the whole hotel, the Spa and... More

We stayed at Holbeck Ghyll for my husband's 30 birthday. We were greeted by a lovely lady on reception who was so welcoming and helpful she really is a credit to the hotel. Upon entering our room we were delighted with the most spectacular view of the lake. The room itself was nice but could probably do with a little... More
