We have just returned from having a lovely afternoon tea at the hotel. We travel past this hotel frequently but have never visited before. My husband was bought the gift for his birthday from our son and partner so we decided to try today. I phoned prior to arriving to see if booking was necessary and told politely it wasn't... More

This is a lovely hotel, ideal for couples to find a bit a peace and quiet. Our room was large and had a balcony which was great to sit on in the evening to enjoy a drink, watch the bats fly overhead and listen to the owls in the trees opposite. The room itself was nice - the bed comfy... More

We were at Back Barrow for a week and in need for some place to spent our evenings, and the Gym at Netherwood 's, where we usually done our work out was over crouded, so we searched and found... Really a great place! Maybe our next hotel?

Lovely break in this lovely hotel, the setting is beautiful looking out the back onto the river, we ate in one night and couldn't fault it, throughout our stay all the staff were lovely but one stood out, I think his name was Graham, nothing was too much trouble for him. There is no small village within walking distance although... More

The hotel is dated but has a lovely view over water , it's 15 mins from Bowness for restaurants , otherwise there is not much in Newby. The pool was closed on Sunday night so we couldn't try it . Food was expensive so we didn't try it and went to Bowness for more choice. My teenage kids thought it... More

Dear reviewer, Your subjective comments have been noted. The building dates back to around 1880 so I can appreciate that parts may appear to be dated, but flat screen TV´s offering over 50 channels including Sky, Free WIFI, a very recently re-vamped bar and restaurant, a spectacular leisure club and Spa amongst other things do not on the face of...

Not geared up in the spa for groups. changing facilities poor. Toilet with no sink. Average treatments. Afternoon tea disappointing and Prosecco at £7.95 for 20cl was the final straw.. Needs a good revamp and shake up.

Have just returned from a wonderful week at this lovely spot. We had a timeshare exchange and would recommend this. Spotlessly clean, plenty of everything in the apartment.

I visited the bar with a group of 5 friends after an evening out. Upon entering the bar we approached the service area where two people from our group had their drink order taken.
