Within an hour of arriving at Linthwaite House I was completely relaxed. I recieved the utmost care and consideration from the staff. Their attention to detail impressed me with nothing being too much trouble. The food was superb, I can’t speak too highly about my experience - I look foward to returning.

One of my favourite places. Especially as I have coeliac disease and nothing at linthwaite is a problem. They can tweak anything on the menu. Friendly staff, stunning views and the rooms to die for. The only sad thing is I never want to leave. I have been there 4 times now and love it as much as the first time

My wife and I were looking for an hotel that would have a good choice of vegetarian food because we have been let down on several occasions recently. The Linthwaite House Hotel did not let us down with the food or any thing else for that matter. From the moment we walked in the door to be greeted to a welcoming log fire, even though it was the middle of April nothing was too much trouble for them. We were a bit early for booking in but we had lunch and a look around the garden before the rains came and stayed for the rest of the weekend. We were shown to our room which unbeknown to us at the time of booking had a Hot Tub recently installed just outside with a view of Lake Windermere. The room was perfect for our needs and the cleanliness was perfect, as it was throughout the hotel. The staff were very friendly and of a high standard professionally. The food was of a very high standard whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner and the waiting staff were knowledgeable about the menu. Add to that the attention to detail during our stay made it a memorable Wedding Anniversary for all the right reasons.

Room Tip: Check out the website because each room is different. Our room 22 has the Hot Tub.

We were treated to an unexpected weekend at the Linthwaite House Hotel - what an extremely pleasant treat.
We could not fault anything from the excellent courteous service to the most tasty food.
We even had good weather for the initial part of the weekend!!
Would thoroughly recommend this location to anyone looking for a luxurious break.

We booked a night here on route to a wedding in London, on the advice of my parents and sister. Definitely not a mistake, we paid only for a standard room but it had everything you could wish for including molton brown toiletries and bathrobes. We had booked as part of the dine for free offer which was excellent value for money.
The food was outstanding, better than some higher rated restaurants we have dined in. Service attentive including frequent topping up of our water glasses with free filtered water, think a previous reviewer might have got that one wrong........... Breakfast was excellent too, with everything cooked perfectly.
The hotel has some nice added touches like the guide books in the side room off the lounge, we enjoyed a walk down by the lake using one of the printed guides available.
We are looking forward to returning at the end of this month to celebrate our first wedding anniversary!!

This was my first trip to the Lake District and I am so glad I chose this hotel for our stay. Wonderful surroundings with the most spectacular view of Lake Windermere, beautiful hotel, absolutely glorious meal at dinner and totally amazing staff all made our stay worth every penny. If I am being picky,and it seems churlish,I would have loved a view of the lake but if you want that you should pay a little more to guarantee. Our stay was not spoiled by our view of a garden. Molten Brown toiletries, comfortable bed, attentive and very friendly staff, hotel printed out nearby walks for us,excellent dinner and breakfast and sunshine! Glorious.

Room Tip: If you want a view pay a little more

Our 3-night stay was a real pleasure - excellent staff, good room and very good food indeed. We were pleased that our room had a lake view which added to our "lake district experience". Highlights included the breakfasts - excellent choice, excellent quality, well served by friendly waiters and all the staff who made us feel genuinely welcome and for whom nothing was too much trouble.
The integrity of the dinner menu could have been improved by the addition of a local cheese and the provision of better quality pillows should be a small but important priority.
All in all, an excellent hotel, well run and well thought through. We will return.

Room Tip: Select a lake view room. I sense that some rooms will otherwise be disappointing.

Many thanks for your kind review.
I totally agree about the cheese and Chef does use local ones most of the time. I have insisted for 23 years that we have British cheese only at Linthwaite and we have always managed to have one or two Cumbrian ones amongst the choice.
We hope to be able to welcome you back again one day,
