Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This was our 5th stay at Lindeth Howe and, as on previous occasions, we were not disappointed. The reception staff were friendly and welcoming and we felt at home right away. We stayed in the same room as on previous occasions ( De Luxe Lake View ) and noticed it had been `freshened up` with new , lighter coloured arm chairs. Both the food and service in the restaurant ( which had been totally redecorated ) were excellent as usual. Our room was cleaned and tidied while we were at breakfast then again during the `turn down` service so the room was always spotless and tidy. This was a thoroughly relaxing return visit and we will be back again as soon as we feel the need to chill out !

Room Tip: If you can - upgrade to a Lake view room

I stayed at this hotel with my wife and two kids over the Easter break. The hotel is very good. We had a spacious room that could easily fit the four of us (not all rooms are the same, so make sure to request a big one if you're going with your family). It is fairly well located, within a 15-minute walk to the centre of Bowness and a very short stroll to the lake. The restaurant is pretty good as well. Not much variety for three consecutive nights, so maybe having the dinners included wasn't the best idea. But it is definitely worth it for one night. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful all the time. We even used the indoor swimming pool in one of the days. Overall a good hotel that I would have no problems recommending.

We spent the weekend at Lindeth Howe in October 2012. We hired the electric bikes, went walking, swimming, a massage and had afternoon tea next to the log fire to dry off after a wet morning. The staff were helpful and friendly and I'd thoroughly recommend the experience.

We stayed for 3 nights and found this hotel to be charming and the staff to be helpful and friendly. The only thing is it is definitely in need of some renovating. The pool area looks rather dated, as did our family room. It was clean tho and the food was lovely so not much to complain about. Ideally situated for Windermere and all surrounding areas.

My husband and Ihave just had afternoon tea at the Lindeth Howe Hotel,the lounge and bar area was full of people having tea. The tea consisted of a sandwich,cream scone,cakes and small trifle in a shot glass.We ate the lot! It was well worth the cost,and the scones were one of the best I have tasted.
