It's really difficult to get a room for one night only at the weekend in the Lakes, so we were over the moon when Hillthwaite House said they could accommodate us. Having checked the reviews before we left we were excited about our stay.
The Hotel is situated in a marvellous position with views across to the Hills and Lake Windermere. It benefits as well from being an easy walk into Windermere or to Bowness.
The room that we were allocated was in the annexe, actually a 70's build house within the grounds, which came as a little bit of a surprise as the main house itself is rather grand. It was roomy, with a leather sofa to snuggle into whilst watching the massive flatscreen TV and had an enormous bed. The bathroom was a disappointment though and is in need of some updating for this room to be lifted from comfortable to luxury as the Hotel is billed. Everything was absolutely spotless and very toasty, which was lovely on a chilly Autumn evening.
Where this Hotel excels is in its restaurant. The food was wonderful and the service exemplory. Each course delivered in a timely but unrushed pace, packed full of flavour and portioned ideally. Great care is given to the presentation of the food which was greatly appreciated. Breakfast would certainly set you up for a day yomping in the hills.
On closing we would return to Hillthwaite House but would choose to stay in the main house as I hear they have a four poster bed!
