The hotel is in the most beautiful location with fantastic views. The bar and restaurant areas very nice and rooms well decorated and cosy. Our room overlooked the late with a shared balcony. Perfect! We were a party of 8 booked in for 2 nights dinner bed and breakfast. When we checked in we were told to come down early... More

Given the number of reviews that mention the sour staff I am surprised the manageress has not yet been replaced. Beautiful location, but poor service trading on the view. Have already mentioned to several people not to stay here...and they had already heard that Miller Hiwe was going downhill and not the same as in John Tivey's day.

We have just returned from our weekend in the Lakes, staying at The Miller Howe Hotel. The hotel is in the most beautiful grounds and has unsurpassed views from every angle. We stayed in the Wastwater room with very large furnished sunny balcony. Spotlessly clean, with traditional furnishings in keeping with the hotel. Bathroom was immaculate, with plenty of fluffy...

We've now stayed here twice. Each time was excellent. Wonderful lake views from balcony, very clean bedroom and bathroom and superb food and wine in restaurant. Apparently the chef has changed since last year, but the food was still fantastic, possibly even better than last year. Staff very friendly and helpful. A lovely arts and crafts house and such a...

Just had a wonderful couple of days here. The hotel staff very friendly. Bedrooms comfortable. We had a lake view room so the views were spectacular. The food was excellent. The best food I have had in a hotel so far. The evening meal was delicious and we really enjoyed the lovely breakfast.

Last visited in the early 90's when John Tovey was head chef and our friends who joined us for dinner were outraged when a non discretionary15% service charge was added to our bill! Took the opportunity to revisit last week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our 2nd floor bedroom with balcony had a superb view over the lake as did... More

Stayed here with my wife for my birthday. Beatiful old building with lots of character, nice lounges, bar & dining rooms, lovely gardens. Had a lake view room which had a small balcony so you can watch the sun setting over the lake. Staff were very friendly & attentive. The food is excellent, the wine list is about 30 pages... More

Very easy to miss if you are not looking for. Set beside Lake Windermere with an elevated position this hotel is really lovely. The reception is a room to the right as you go in, mind you move to the side as you might get hit with the door. The lounge is comfortable plenty of room to relax before dinner.... More
