We stayed for one night hotel beautiful, service excellent, spa fantastic. We opted to upgrade for an additional £20 each to the restaurant as the brasserie was too noisy with children running round and seemed to have no one in charge we walked in and straight back out and opted to upgrade to the restaurant which was quiet, well serviced and an excellent menu. I would advise anyone staying here to do the same as soon as you check in as the upgrade is worth every penny. Food was excellent as was the service breakfast the following morning was fresh local produce and served with a smile.

This hotel has has the whole hospitality experience sorted.
Check in was smooth with a free sherry. Our rooms were delightful; lovely furnishings with plenty of extras, such a tv in the bathroom. My mother had reserved a single room but was upgraded to a superior double close to our room. We were lucky to have a room with a balcony which made for a pleasant cup of tea in the sun. The views from many rooms are great and if you can't see from your room, the eating and lounge areas provide them.
Every member of staff is exceptionally polite and professional. Nothing is too much trouble, so much so that not one stood out, but each individual would in many another hotel.
Afternoon tea was top notch. (I always eat cheese scones and these were the best I've had!)
The spa and pool facilities were brilliant - pool is good for swimming lengths whilst the small pool is great for kids. The outdoor jacuzzi makes relaxation easy and is picturesque.
We ate in the formal dining room- the menu contained a wide variety of options, and had a great atmosphere.
Breakfast is another treat. This was my second time here and I will be back!

Set in unbelievable scenery this Hotel is all about stately mansion living. The building itself is beautiful, as is the grounds with forest walks just yards away from the rear of the house.

The view from the rear of the building takes in step hills on either side of Bassenthwaite Lake - it's stunning. The room was luxurious as was the en-suite.

The swimming pool and Spa is top quality and there's a large outdoor Jacuzzi and sun lounging area.

Dinner in the Dining room is formal with a strict dress code, but in the nearby Brasserie it's `dress how you like'. The food is excellent as is the service .

It's expensive for a one night stay, but we got a Groupon deal for half the price, it was great to see how the other half live.

After a god swim in the spa we were hungry and popped into the Brasserie for some well earned food. Marion and Sunshine are always there to tend to your needs, they make you feel so welcome.

The homemade burger was scrummy with the blue cheese topping, the hubby ate the salmon with couscous he said it was rather delicious - I wouldn't know I didn't get to taste it!

How lovely to have good food at a good price with great service - please keep up the good work

We have had another lovely experience at Armathwaite Hall, the last time we were there was twenty one years ago, I was so delighted to be back. The service here is exceptional, you are treated so well by all the staff, they make you feel really special. We had a lovely room, no.143 which is on the ground floor with a small patio area, my husband and I sat with a lovely bottle of sparkly wine and enjoyed the sunshine, a perfect afternoon! We booked for our evening meal too, which was fantastic quality, the waiting staff take care of you from the minute you go for a pre dinner drink in the drawing room, right through to the end of your meal, they will take your drinks and bring coffees through to the comfortable lounge area to finish your evening, cant fault this hotel at all, loved it.
