“Impressive 19th Century Building in Lovely Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Hotel is set in large gardens and beautifully located overlooking Morecambe Bay.
Less than 10 minutes walk to town centre and half-an-hour by car to Lake Windermere.
Large room with good-sized flat screen TV, though bedroom carpet threadbare in places and no safe or fridge.
Breakfast food very good - did not take dinner.
All staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms overlook gardens and Morecambe Bay.

A wonderful position overlooking the bay . The hotel built in 1896 has kept its charm. Our room did not have the view but was very spacious with a large, light , well -appointed bathroom. The staff were pleasant and helpful

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view if you feel it is important to you

I first visited this hotel 20 years ago at my sister's wedding. 20 years later I have visited again for my mother and father's 50th wedding anniversary. In that time the hotel has changed little. The gardens are immaculate, the view is spectacular, the food is marvellous and staff are well trained and happy to help. They just need a local ale now.

Unfortunately, however in the twenty years, the decor has become tired and a little shabby. Therefore a hotel that could easily be 4 star is only 3 star.

The sitting, views and public rooms were beautiful. We could have been on a "Miss Marple" set. however room 7 had considerable staining on the wallpaper and all furniture showed signs of wear. We were guests at a wedding earlier this month and noted that communication presented problems for the wedding party. This included failure to provide agreed breakfast arrangements for the brides party and the grooms party. Also the bride was asked to vacate her room for cleaning while preparing for the wedding! in spite of this our overall experience was pleasant and memorable. The food and service after the wedding itself was particularly good.

Room Tip: Room 7 was situated at the front of the building and the view was lovely.Very peaceful aspect. A roo...

This was our fourth stay for work and we love the views and the old world charm of the place - big armchairs, cream tea etc. however this time it wasn't quite as good and we felt it was perhaps because the owner who is normally very much in evidence wasn't there. Some of the dishes were cancelled, the fires weren't lit and the drinks and menus took a very long time to arrive although they were really busy. The food in the evening is always so much better than breakfast which is always a bit of a letdown.

14 members of a wine society spent a great weekend at the Netherwood.We were very well looked after by attentive and helpful staff who quickly sorted odd niggles. Dinner was served each night in a beautifully set private dining room . The food was well presented with a good choice and the highlight was dinner accompanied by a wine tasting arranged by the hotel and provided by Dave Unsworth of Unsworths Yard in nearby Cartmel

As a frequent business travelller I have wide experience of hotels all over UK. Now retired and no longer having an expense account I have to pay particular attention to value for money without compromising the stantards I have been used to over the past 30 years.

Netherwood meets all these requirements and so much more. Not only is this a fine and elegant hotel, the staff are helpful and the management sympathetic to my recent urgent need for accomodation whilst attendinga funeral in the area., and this being an un budgeted for expense, especially with a 600+ mile journey.

The hotel accomodated our needs for several family members including a 4 year old and the management understanding was superlative. One should never discuss terms on a site like this, but simply to say, explain your needs to the management and they will be sympathetic to your needs.

The hotel itself. Well all I can say is that we are now planning to stay again,this time in a holiday environment. Nothing was too much trouble and the facilities and grounds were magnificent. Anyone staying the the southern Lake District should put this hotel at the top of their list. We certainly will do so.

Room Tip: Tell reception your nessda and the manager (Mike) will make sure you are accomodated
