If this is how the original owner the Earl of Lonsdale lived then he was a lucky boy. We arrived to the chaos that only a blocked M6 can wreak upon a Restaurant timetable but if this is chaos then please can I have some more. Beautifully situtated above Windermere this Country House Hotel is well run and well appointed....

We were booked in to a "Fell view" room and on arrival we were upgraded to a "Lake view" room in the Lodge building, which is separate from the main building and offset to one side. The three rooms on the first floor have balconies, the ground floor has a terrace. The views of the lake from the balconies are...

Let me say first off that Holbeck Ghyll is in a spectacular location overlooking the northern end of Windermere, near Ambleside. We had a lake view and to wake to that in the morning is very special indeed. The food is of course excellent and over the course of three nights we tried many of the dishes on offer. The...

This was our second visit in just under a year for a significant birthday for myself, staying with my husband in the Miss Potter Suite. Those 2 nights have given me the most special memories to take away, it was an absolutely wonderful stay. The suite is beautifully furnished with amazing views over Lake Windermere, with of course a fantastic...

We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon and were not disappointed. We opted for a lake-view room, which offered stunning views across the hotel gardens and out over Lake Windemere. The service was excellent - the staff were always attentive but never overbearing. The facilities were lovely, the breakfast was delicious and the experience of dining in their Michelin...

Stayed for a weekend at the Holbeck, it was on our list of potential wedding venues and although we've discounted it for our wedding I would certainly stay here again when on a visit to the lakes - and we are often in the lakes! I thought the main hotel itself was really lovely, traditional in many senses with a...

When invited to take part in a friends wedding it was, of course, a privilege. The Holbeck Ghyll made the whole weekend a delight - the setting, facilities and food were simply wonderful. To me though the staff made the weekend such a success. Their attention to detail was second to none and they could not have been friendlier. They...

Had a short stay here at the end of September and the only problem was that it was too short!
