From the moment we arrived Armathwaite was perfect, the welcome from the lady at reception to the bellboy who took our luggage everyone was great. We were lucky enough to be upgraded when we arrived which was just wonderful, we had a suite with a balcony overlooking the lake and because it was my husbands birthday we were welcomed with a bottle of prosecco in our room which we of course enjoyed on the balcony! The spa is fab, so nice to have the outdoor pool but it is absolutely roasting! Breakfast was also great and we ended up having our coffee in the drawing room in front of the fire. Lovely walks around the ground as well. Honestly wish we had stayed longer, we were booked in to The Forest Side and the Bellsfield but the Armathwaite wins hands down for service and overall experience. Well done - cannot wait to come back!

Room tip: Fabulous - book a suite with a balcony with a view of the lake!

A last minute decision to have a short break and we couldn't have found a better place. The room was large and had it's own patio with French windows leading to it.
Breakfast on the first day was by waiter service and actually was much better than the second day when it was a buffet but both were perfectly good and the buffet did offer more choice. The grounds are idyllic we walked to the lake and then back through the bluebell woods. There is some work going on by the lake and a proper seating area would be a great bonus. We spent a lot of time in the Spa and pool. The pool is a very good size and the outdoor hot tub is wonderful - though it may be a little too hot! There is an opportunity to order drinks directly into the Hot Tub we didn't partake but many others did.Friendly staff and tiptop service.

We visited here as a couple in April and had high expectations after reading the reviews beforehand.
At check in we were informed we had kindly been upgraded for to celebrate our recent wedding which was a lovely gesture. We were shown to our suite and blown away. The room was huge, the bed was huge, the bathroom with Jacuzzi bath double sinks and television was huge and the views of the grounds and lake blew us away.
Whilst there for two nights we spent some time using the spa facilities which were lovely. We did have an issue with the poor service of one of the receptionists at the spa but we did inform the hotel of this when checking out.
Within the spa there is an infinity pool, outdoor heated pool and lots of fabulous treatments were available. We booked the work it out massage which was incredible.
Food at Armathwaite was gorgeous. Both the restaurant and brasserie were superb. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, plentiful and had a good variety. Definitely set us up for the day.
A special mention to one particular staff member Steven who is part of the trainee management scheme. Such a warm, kind hearted man who whenever we saw him went out of his way to make sure we were happy and nothing was too much trouble for him. He definitely added to our wonderful experience.
We honestly enjoyed every minute of our two day stay here. By far it is the best short getaway in the UK we have experienced and we were really sad to leave. We will definitely be returning.

Spent our last night in the Lake District in Armathwaite, loved everything about it. Please note some of the photos on Tripadvisor are old as this hotel has had a total refurbishment. Very relaxing and staff couldn’t be more helpful, had afternoon coffee in the lounge and dinner in the bistro, food great, spa relaxing, only regret was that we were not staying longer.

Room tip: Loved the rooms in the main building

Had a great day here at Armathwaite Hall hotel and Spa. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with a warm welcome and smiles all round. Spent the day in the spa, treatments and food in the Brasserie. All staff were attentive, gave excellent service, looked smart and were professional at all times. Food was great and so were the selection of drinks. Left feeling relaxed and very happy. Will definitely visit again.

Thank you for a great day.

Dear Guest

Thank you very much for your lovely review of your Spa Day experience.

It is always a pleasure to read that our guests have had a good time and it is also pleasing to see that the staff have been acknowledged as they work extremely hard to look after each and every guest.

Why not next time make a weekend of it and book a relaxing Spa Break?
