Lovely setting in the lakes, modern reception / bar area. Checked in to be given a room that was VERY small and didn’t look like the photos after we paid for a bigger bed & room with a bath. They were very helpful and let me choose which room I wanted that we actually already paid for. Would say it was quite pricey for what it was but it’s in Windermere I suppose. The staff were very helpful & so lovely. The breakfast was so tasty & lots to choose from. Would recommend but maybe a slightly cheaper rate. Bigger TVs & baths in the rooms would be better too
Just returned from a fantastic 2 night stay at Hillthwaite. Friendly and helpful staff from checkin to departure.Felt very safe due to all the precautions in place. Spotlessly clean everywhere. We had an occasion room which was wonderful. Superb views and such a comfy bed. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant was to a very high standard. Lots of great walks from the hotel (Dalesway only a few minutes away) Certainly hope to return as soon as possible. A big thank you to all the staff for all their hard work in such difficult times.
We have just returned from a 2 night stay at this lovely hotel. The staff are so friendly and make you feel at home. Our room was quite small but adequate for our needs and exceptionally clean. We walked down to the lake, it takes 10-15 mins and lots of shops to visit on the way. Breakfast was just perfect, very tasty. The evening meal was excellent, the portions weren't very large so i had a dessert and i was certainly full after that! Coffee in the afternoon was served with warm mini mince pies. They melted in your mouth, absolutley delicious. Could eat them every day! Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel if you are visiting the lake district.
We visited Hillthwaite for a second time this weekend . We were made to feel so welcome when we arrived . The room was exceptional with a wonderful view of lake Windermere. The decor was so tasteful and the bathroom contemporary. The jewel in the crown is the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was Michelin star standard ! Everything was organised and efficiently run by the restaurant Manager. We cannot wait to return next year ! Ian and Tracey
The hotel was lovely. Check in was easy and smooth. The staff were friendly. The room was great and with amazing views. The breakfast was delicious! The swimming pool was disappointing but I guess you can’t expect too much from the size hotel. The location was ideal and only a 10 min walk from both Bowness Bay and Windermere but note that it is up a very very steep hill! I would definitely recommend staying here and we would return should we visit the Lake District again!
