I never thought the Coniston Hotel looked anything special when driving past for years. Then the Huntsmans Lodge restaurant was recommended and now it's one of my favourite places. At the back of the hotel, it is a large room with a feature open fire in the middle and a glass wall with a stunning view across a lake and...

Been many times to the hotel and have always enjoyed our visits. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent and our favoured room is the Huntsmans with a superb view from the large windows/ doors overlooking the large patio, lake and hills in the background. We used the swimming pool for the first time in...

My wife recently treated me to a night away spa break at the Coniston Hotel for my birthday. Having never tried a spa before, I wasn't sure whether this gift was entirely for me, however having done it was very glad that we did. The hotel is clearly modern, and I understand owned by the Bannister family, who have had...

We booked this hotel for our special wedding anniversary as we had driven past many times and I had always wanted to stay there. We were greeted by very friendly staff who could not do enough for us throughout our stay. We stayed in a suit with balcony overlooking the lake and high dales, it was well equipped and very...

Without a doubt, the thing that puts this hotel into the absolute top category for me is the wonderful view from the terrace / Huntsman restaurant. There will be very, very few places in the world with that kind of very pastoral, northern English rural type view, with the added aspect of, in some seasons, constantly changing weather. For me...

We visited for a wedding earlier this year and setting was absolutely beautiful, as was the ceremony and reception. The couple had a certain area of the hotel to themselves which allowed for separate areas and for breakfast to be taken separate to other hotel guests which was a nice touch. They have some great open fires and a wide...
