I have never received such BAD customer service! I was given a voucher for afternoon tea at a choice of loads of hotels across the UK. I rang a few different locations and the reviews seemed good at this location. The lady who rang me back also was very friendly and nothing seemed like too much trouble so was happy... More

I booked this on booking.com and it was as part of a birthday celebration for my Mum. I was so impressed to get an email from then to enquire about the birthday and age of child. They asked for my Mums name as they put a card in the room. I just requested a nice room with view as that... More

Beautiful place and well off the beaten track. We were greeted by a lovely receptionist who was a real credit to the hotel. She showed us through to the bar area, where we assumed we would then be shown to a table in the restaurant. Sadly not though, as we were served our afternoon tea in the bar. Sitting in... More

Five day break of 'family' which included elderly parent, teenager and dog. The hotel was excellent it being able to cope with all our different needs and provided an excellent and comfortable base. All staff very attentive, pleasant and helpful. Could not have asked for more.

Quite how this can be described as a four star hotel, let alone a luxury hotel, really beats me. Is basically a three star hotel and isn't worth more than 80-90 per night. They obviously rely on the fact that people book in advance and by the time they get here are too late to cancel and go elsewhere.

Cosy comfortable hotel beautifully furnished with an excellent restaurant overlooking Lake Windermere. Very attentive staff and the service at breakfast and dinner was faultless. The swimming pool was very small and not worth the effort of signing the health and safety register to have a swim.

Exceeded all expectations. A beautiful building with enormous rooms that instantly make you relax. The staff did everything in their powers to make our stay memorable and the meals were outstanding.... We had a beautiful evening meal that was delicious, felt quite posh for us, and breakfast was amazing. Worth a taxi to Bowness even though we were told it... More

This was our annual weekend at Lindeth Howe and it hasn't disappointed. A very warm welcome by the reception staff. One of our favourite rooms has wonderful views of the grounds. All products provided in the bathroom. Robes, slippers, tea making and the addition of a small fridge make the stay very comfortable. Dinner was exquisite, we were spoiled for... More
