We spent two nights for our wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived the staff were welcoming and attentive. Room 17 was lovely with a good view across the gardens and enabling us to watch the woodland birds. Dinner served beautifully with delicious and plentiful portions. Excellent and varied wine list. Breakfast, plenty of choice in cereals and cooked, which...

We stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. The location is beautiful and quiet, with a lovely view across the lake from the garden and terrace. Breakfast is really good with lots of choice and we had dinner at the hotel several times, which was delicious, although it was not cheap. The rooms were nice and comfortable...

We have afternoon tea or dinner here occasionally, but as we enjoy it so much it is worthy of a further report. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a fireside settee and armchairs. A friendly and efficient waitress was soon asking what we wished to drink. Following this a good choice of very fresh sandwiches arrived. A big choice...

We love staying at the Linthwaite. Accommodation is lovely. Staff are welcoming and quick to attend to our requirements. But top of the list is the food. Delicious! Beautiful surroundings, the perfect couples retreat.

For a fairly pricey three night stay this was quite a mixed bag. Great welcome upon check-in. Shown to our room. Room lovely. Very clean. We at first booked the restaurant for dinner but hadn't realised it was a four-course tasting menu meal and didn't fancy that at 8:30pm (only available slot on arrival). And, to be honest, once we...

Stayed for long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the impeccable hospitality and great cuisine. Despite the usual Lakes rain, we still managed delightful afternoon tea on the terrace. Breakfasts were really good - comprehensive choice, very fresh - while dinner was exceptional with sufficient choice, flexibility with dietary requirements and affordable wine selections.

This hotel is amazing. The staff are lovely the food is formidable and the hotel itself is absolutely gorgeous. We had our wedding on a Saturday morning and no detail was missed by the hotel staff. They were so attentive. The hotel itself is beautiful with lovely decor and a wonderful view of the lake from it's purpose built patio.

We've stayed here 5 times and it is still our favourite, lake district hotel. The service is always excellent and the welcome always warm and friendly. We took advantage of a great deal but could only stop one night, which was a real shame as it was just as good as it always has been. Our room (room 11) was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of the Lake District's best country house hotels, but unstuffy! Great views, acres of private grounds, fishing, golf nearby, hiking, walking, extreme sports all within easy access. Great food, from fine dining to the Unstuffy Hamburger! Many wines by the glass and beers from local macro breweries. Lots of staff to pamper you and help you relax. Two rooms have private hot tubs. ... more   less
