If it were all about the location the hotel would be overall 5 but it is not. The hotel is set back up a quiet road from the lake but the views from the front of the hotel take in the lake and surrounding mountains. Beautiful. The main building has a warm welcoming feel. The exterior is typical stone building...

This is a beautifully located hotel. It looks the part. All the hardware is in place. Stunning views, lovely large room with slight view of the lake. All good. But sadly the service is insincere, not genuine smiles, no customer focus. The place is clearly understaffed and the staff they have seem to be very put upon if you ask...

We got married here in 2012 and go back every year, the place is truly amazing. Just on the hills over looking lake Windermere they can arrange any trip you would like. The food is a must and once you have been you will want to go again

Wow! What a fantastic experience! We decided whilst on a visit to the Lakes that we'd like to experience afternoon tea and Holbeck Ghyll came highly recommended so we thought we'd give it a try. As soon as you pull up to Holbeck Ghyll, the grounds are astounding and it doesn't stop there. We were welcomed warmly by a man...

We have been to Holbeck Ghyll several times now and have thoroughly enjoyed it every time, raving to our friends about how brilliant it is. To this end friends of ours came up for the weekend from London recently for a visit and decided to stay in Bowness - specifically so that they could try Holbeck Ghyll! They were not...

We visited for Sunday lunch and were seated by ourselves in a rear dining room. Not the best. Decor is pleasant but lacks the finishing touches (e.g. beautiful art deco light fitting, but three different types of light bulb; e.g. picture over the fireplace has been subject to damp and is curling along one end). No mint available for one...

We booked at short notice via Secret Escapes and got a good deal on a Fellview room. We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived and were upgraded to room 23 with a lovely view over Lake Windermere. We were given an orientation tour of the hotel which was a nice touch. The small decanter of damson gin was very...

We recently returned to Holbeck Ghyll after a number of years for a four night stay. We considered others but did not find any that convincingly offered a better alternative. The hotel is meticulously and professionally run, reaching a very high standard in almost all respects. The evening restaurant menu and service is a highlight and we dined there throughout...

This was our third stay at this great hotel. Arrived in anticipation of another splendid meal and we were not let down ( try the venison...it's fantastic!). A nice competitively priced New Zealand Sauvignon blanc from the comprehensive wine list and discreet service made it a wonderful dining experience. The room was large and clean with a huge bathroom ,...
