“Attention to detail & restorative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

My best friend and I booked this via a deal on groupon.
The place was spotless,with highly attentive staff who surpassed every requirement. My 11 year old daughter accompanied us and they made her feel v welcome, including her in the little special touches with our 5 course dinner.
The food was amazing, beautifully presented and bursting with flavour.
I can also highly recommend the afternoon tea,taken in front of a roaring fire after a wonderful stroll to the lake( which can be reached walking from the hotel in about 20 min) I've never had better, and liked the special touches, like dressed salad on the side.we even managed a swim and sauna after breakup.A v restorative break Thankyou

Stayed for one night as we had an overnight deal which included afternoon tea, dinner and bed and breakfast.
Excellent food at afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast. The staff were very attentive and the atmosphere was lovely. Didn't get chance to use pool.
A really enjoyable stay with great room overlooking the lake.

Just spent two nights at the hotel with my boyfriend. The hotel is beautiful and the service was great. We booked into a double room but we wanted a better view from our window and we were allowed to move to a better room on the second floor. The view was overlooking the lake and the room was clean and really comfortable. There was a pool and sauna and we borrowed bikes and the transport from the lake was easy and we got to explore the local villages. The breakfast was really good and had good options for vegetarians. I would really recommend staying here.

We had an overnight deal which included afternoon tea, dinner, bed and breakfast. A real traditional tea (the scones melted in the mouth!), excellent dinner beautifully presented followed by a good breakfast next morning. The hotel is charming and the public rooms spacious and nicely presented. Restaurant staff are very well trained and a credit to the hotel. A good all round experience in a beautiful spot.

Room Tip: Room with a view of the lake if possible

Had a Great weekend at Lindeth, we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, our room had a great view of the lake, it was clean comfy with a bed we did want to get out off,the room had everything we needed,
Food... It started with afternoon tea, small amount of sandwiches, a gooey chocolate brownies, the freshest scones I've had in ages, and the tea was perfect for me. Hubby had coffee, three cups so it must have been good.
Dinner... Lost count of how many courses, but it was delicious, with a lovely warm atmosphere in the restaurant,
Breakfast... You would think after the evening meal we couldn't eat much more, but we couldn't resist, full english for hubby and I was spoilt didn't know which to pick, had smoke salmon & scrambled eggs, the best black pudding,
It didn't stop there, fruit granola,fresh Croissant and Danish, with lashing of tea & coffee.
Will be going back for more soon.

Stayed here on the night of 13th Feb as part of a TravelZoo deal. Was initially put off when informed that our 4 year old would not be allowed in the dining room and that we would have to dine in the library.

We were served afternoon tea in one of the lounges which consisted of sandwiches and home baked scones.

Our room was great (123) although we didn't have a great view. The room was fully equipped and very comfortable.

Our daughter particularly enjoyed the swimming pool.

We enjoyed a very relaxed stress free dinner in the library, which was a very comfortable family dining room where our 4 year old could behave as a 4 year old and we could dine in peace without worrying about other diners.

We stayed at the Linthwaite House Hotel on the night of 14th so obviously compared the two. We definitely preferred this hotel in every way and hope to return for another visit.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The only reason I'm giving it an average rating is because I really felt our children were out of place. They weren't allowed to eat in the dining room during dinner unless we could guarantee they would behave. That's something a mom of a three year old just can't guarantee! :) I'm perfectly ok with the fact that they don't want children in the dining area, but the hotel is very reserved, and upscale. We felt underdressed in our jeans and hiking shoes at breakfast. Again, it was a beautiful lovely place, just a bit too pretentious for our taste.
