Spent 4 days in this hotel on half board basis and couldn't fault it. Beautiful bedroom, excellent staff, and first class dining. Lovely situation in Windermere within walking distance of Bowness (the lake) and Windermere town. Local buses a great way of getting around the southern Lake District.

A beautifully positioned and decorated hotel right near Windermere. The rooms were modern fashionable clean and very large. On arrival the staff were warm friendly and courteous and the hotel grounds stunning. The service and quality of the evening meal was excellent in the restaurant. Would definitely stay again

We stayed here for four nights early August. The room was really smartly decorated, a little small, but excellent views and an excellent bathroom with big shower. We had breakfast and dinner included. The food was delicious. But there was so much of it (on our deal) we couldn't eat it all! The drinks menu is also really good, including... More

We stayed for four days at this beautiful hotel and would certainly return for another holiday. The location is excellent with lovely views over the Lake, the staff are so helpful, polite and professional and the rooms were spotlessly cleaned. The food was delicious and the restaurant staff were wonderful. I have stayed in many hotels as part of my... More

After visiting the Hillthwaite Hotel periodically over the past ten years I first reviewed this hotel last year after a two night stay with my wife and family. I am so endeared that I rate it as my favourite British hotel enormously. After our recent three night stay I feel I must quantify why I rate the Hillthwaite so highly.... More

We stayed for 3 nights and had a very nice stay. Our room was not massive but was clean and had all the facilities we needed and a very comfortable bed. the highlight however was certainly the food, especially the 4 course Dinners which were excellent quality, they obviously have a talented chef. The staff in all departments of the... More
