We stayed here over the Bank Holiday weekend like so many others on a TravelZoo promotion. This was a wedding anniversay present for our friends.

What a fabulous hotel, so relaxed, in a lovely setting, easy to walk into Bowness. Friendy and attentive staff.

We had the afternoon tea which was lovely and the 5 course evening meal which was phenomenal, the food was lovely with a good choice and the after dinner chocolates to die for.

The whole hotel was spotless and the rooms lovely and well appointed.

This is somewhere we definitely return to for a nice, relaxing day or two.

This was the third time we have stayed at Lindeth Howe and I am pleased to say that it did not disappoint. The hotel was just as welcoming and comfortable as ever. The food, once again, was excellent: imaginative and delicious. All the staff are great, particularly Tony who is always prepared to go the extra mile to help. We are looking forward to booking our next visit!

We booked this stay with a Travelzoo voucher but paid to stay for a second night. The hotel is easy to find, set in very nice gardens with a view of the lake. It is on the outskirts of Bowness and, therefore, very peaceful. The staff were very helpful from the moment we walked through the door. Our room was on the upper floor, quite a distance from the front door, but this didn't bother us, but might cause problems for others as there is no lift. We had a view over the gardens, across the lake to the mountains, wonderful. The afternoon tea was delicious, not over done, scones, sandwich and cake with a glass of bubbly which was actually champagne not just some bubbly white wine. The evening meal was excellent, novelle cuisine, and a lot of care was taken over presentation. The amuse bouche was wild garlic and cumin, delicious. I know that the garlic leaves were fresh as I saw a member of the kitchen staff picking them in the grounds! We didn't eat in the hotel on the second night as, without the voucher, it was very expensive.
I should point out that the swimming pool is very small and for some strange reason, there is a CCTV camera there which you can access from the television in your room. I found that very strange.
If another voucher deal comes through we would probably go there again.
One other thing, the one star reviews are very old and I think that Tripadvisor should remove them. They bear no relation to the hotel as it is now.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the gardens, lake and mountains.

Booked the Lindeth Howe as part of a Travel Zoo deal. Paid an upgrade fee and were given a superb room overlooking the lake. We arrived on the Saturday afternoon and were given a really nice welcome and shown around the main areas. Took the bags to the room and then retired to the lounge for an afternoon tea, which was really good.
Booked in for dinner as part of the deal and this was the real show stopper. The meal was excellent, beautifully presented and tasted even better. My wife enjoyed a meal from the A La Carte but I went for the Tasting Menu and both of us could not have been more pleased.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel

My wife booked us in the Lindeth for my birthday treat, we arrived to a very warm welcome which continued throughout our stay. The food and the service were exceptional. The location is very peaceful but within easy walking distance to Bowness.
We will certainly be going back.

we have just come back from a bank holiday stay at this hotel - we used a travelzoo voucher and wow what value for money it was.
We upgraded on the room so we have a lake view, the welcome was friendly and we were shown to our room which was lovely, nicely decorated with a half tester bed and window seat so you could overlook the garden with the lake in the distance - beautiful. The room was clean furnished nicely and the bathroom was spotless.
There were plenty of sofas and armchairs to relax in the bar / lounge area before dinner - the bar tender Warren was friendly and attentive. The Dining room was nicely appointed with a piano which accompanied dinner on a Saturday night - the food was excellent, a lovely choice and the quality of the produce superb. The waiters and waitress's were very friendly and helpful and I cant speak too highly of them - they made the whole stay extra special. The breakfast each morning was very good plenty of choice and again excellent quality.

Definitely worth a visit - enjoy as we did. Thank you Lindeth Howe

Room Tip: the room we stayed in was 107 based on the first floor overlooking the garden and lake with a window...
