We stayed here again after loving our stay last year in Meregill room. This year we were in Caplecrag and again were not disappointed. Absolutely stunning room with ensuite and breakfasts that were 5*. An absolutely lovely hotel for a romantic stay, which is what we wanted. Staff were wonderful, nothing too much trouble. Can't wait to go back again... More

I had booked this hotel for a weekend break for myself and my partner. We stayed in the Glenridding room on the Friday night. The room was clean and finished to a high standard. It was a little on the small side, but I am aware that we were in a period building. The breakfast on the first morning was... More

The rooms were very clean, beds very comfortable and we were not disturbed by noise from other guests coming and going. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and... More

Another first class stay at the Howbeck. The Howbeck team were fantastic. Kim, Danni, Alison and newcomer Gocza. They looked after us so well. Breakfasts were excellent. Accommodation couldn't be faulted. This is why we come back time and time again. Location is central, very good places to eat and drink. We enjoyed going to some new places, Fodder and... More

After getting married on the 2nd August we had a little night away in our favourite hotel in the Lake District. Having stayed previously and absolutely loved it, there was no question as to where we were staying. The staff are always smiling, polite and friendly, you just can't fault them! The room was gorgeous, light, bright, clean and tidy.... More

Booked for a romantic night away. Hotel on first impressions was good, staff friendly and reception area comfortable. We booked 'The Retreat' room as it had double spa bath with TV, terrace etc. Apart from the water damage stains on the ceiling it seemed perfect. When I put the TV on in the bathroom settling into a nice hot bath,... More
