Booked a 6 night stay over the Christmas period 2013. This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Applegarth and once again the food, service, staff and attention to detail could not be faulted.
My wife and I would highly recommend a stay at this great hotel, rooms beautifully appointed, food excellent and the management and staff very helpful. Will be booking again for next Christmas.

I'm writing this review from one of the rooms at the hotel and we are not disappointed. We found the hotel by accident trawling through the hundreds of options the Lakes has to offer and booked online. I am very glad we stumbled across it.

Upon arrival our room was upgraded as we were staying for a few nights which was a lovely touch. Every detail is great and as advertised, the place is spotless with a great attention to detail throughout, it's obvious the owners really care. The food in the evening and breakfast is very good with a breadth of options available.

I have a feeling we will be coming back.

Booked this for a over night stay, Monday 16th December for my boyfriends birthday, Couldn't of asked for a nicer, friendly place! As soon as you walk in you can tell its a 5 star establishment. We were greeted on reception by Kevin, (Who deserves a special mention as he made our stay perfect) Check in was simple and didn't take two minutes. He advised us of where to go if we chose to dine out and where to avoid. (Which you don't normally get pointers on)

To my surprise he upgraded our booking I recently made (Room 7) to Suite 2. The room was out standing, It is tastefully decorated with amazing views, but to me the real wow factor was the Bathroom, with a 2 person Jacuzzi with a TV in the wall, Double sink, underfloor heating and Rain shower, you really couldn't ask for anything better. As it was near Christmas they even included a Stocking on our room and decorated tree in our room!

We had a bed and breakfast booking and I could not praise the staff or the food more. I don't eat a lot but what I did eat was amazing, as was my boyfriends choice.

Applegarth allows a laid back feel which enables you to fully relax, We didn't want to move out of the 8ft round bed in the morning! The check out time was reasonable, and we even got a mini tour of the hotel including suite 1, (which we will be booking next time)

This was the perfect birthday present and I would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Room 2 - The bed is amazing, Bathroom 5*!

So pleased you loved room 2, it truly is a romantic place to be with more people proposing there than any other room in Applegarth! We are delighted that you considered it to be an ideal birthday present for your boyfriend and look forward to you booking room 1 next time.

We stayed for 3 nights beginning Dec. From arrival to departure we were well looked after.
Nothing was to big a request for the staff ,from fixing our bath plug(minor problem that took 2 mins to fix) to helping with taxis , local knowledge for pubs and keeping us well fed and serving us drinks til our heart was content. The room (13) was lovely!

I was fortunate enough to spend a romantic weekend up in the lakes towards the back end of October in Windermere with my girlfriend of some years. On arrival I was greeted by the proprietor who gave us a mini tour of the hotel and guided us to our room which was very well furnished and very comfortable and actually very professionally finished which I have found to be unusual in the lakes a lot of the hotels are a little dated - somebody has taken a lot of time and effort to make sure everything has its place in this hotel and it does not go untoiced. We dined in the hotel for our evening meals and breakfasts and I honestly cannot find fault with any of it, the food was of a very high standard, the staff couldnt do enough for us and the surroundings were all idyllic for our stay so much so, the romance took over and I ended up proposing to my girlfriend on the terrace which was not expected and a bit last minute but everyone at the hotel rallied round and made it just the perfect memory for us. We will definately be back next year thanks to everyone at the hotel for making our romantic stay simply perfect on every level.
