This was our first visit since the recent ' take over'. A new chef at The helm and I think several new staff. Lunch now costs £24.95, but is still great value. Lovely tastes and beautiful presentation. The hotel is due for a full renovation in Summer 2017, will watch with interest. Hope they are able to preserve its beauty... More

I feel compelled to write about the excellent Linthwaite house. Great breakfasts stunning evening meals but most of all the amazingly good staff.

Stayed here for a friends wedding celebrations on 19/11/16. Wow. What a fabulous place. Fantastic decor, very cosy. The food was excellent quality, piping hot and cooked to perfection. We had an attic room but don't let that put you off. There was plenty of room and the place was spotlessly clean, with great attention to detail. We wanted for... More

We visited here yesterday on a rainy Monday afternoon, and what a way to spend the time. First we had Kir Royals sat looking out over Windermere - pricey but it's par for the course. We then made our way through for lunch which was just divine. I had parsnip soup with a game scotch egg followed by rich, intense... More

We recently enjoyed an excellent three night break here. The hotel and gardens, although classic, are very well maintained and immaculate. We stayed in a cosy king room which was actually a decent size with a large bathroom. The room temperature was good although the mattrass and pillows were a bit too soft for our liking. The public areas of... More

Fantastic Andy, Sarah and the TEAM were brilliant, and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel and grounds fabulous and the food was to die for especially the new potatoes served at the buffet. We will return!

We stayed at Linthwaite House at the end of October and had a great stay. Room was comfortable and the lounge was welcoming with great views. Staff were superb - friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful. Food was also excellent. Highly recommended.

Most things about this hotel were fine. Friendly efficient staff, nice comfortable rooms and public areas. Let down massively by their fine dining dinner - perhaps should read FIND dining as the portions were miniscule. Starter described on menu as scalllops was in fact 1 scallop!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of the Lake District's best country house hotels, but unstuffy! Great views, acres of private grounds, fishing, golf nearby, hiking, walking, extreme sports all within easy access. Great food, from fine dining to the Unstuffy Hamburger! Many wines by the glass and beers from local macro breweries. Lots of staff to pamper you and help you relax. Two rooms have private hot tubs. ... more   less
