Lindeth Howe Hotel is handily placed around a mile from the hustle and bustle of Bowness. The hotel itself is beautiful with traditionally appointed lounges/bar, an attractive restaurant, tastefully decorated rooms and beautiful gardens.

Just returned from this hotel. It is a lovely place, big comfy chairs and open fires everywhere. The staff are all wonderful. The food was really nice and the breakfast amazing. No buffet, cooked to order which I prefer. Myself and my husband went with our 8 Year old twin boys, the only thing to say is it's not a...

Booked a family room for myself, husband and teenage son for Friday & Saturday. Had a little difficulty in finding the place despite having the post code and had to telephone the hotel in the end to confirm directions. As it turns out we were only half a mile away. Arrived in the pouring rain and received a pleasant greeting...

My partner booked this as a surprise for my birthday, and he couldn't have chosen better. The location of the hotel is superb and within easy walking distance to the lake. Our room was very clean and had lots of nice touches like window seats overlooking the garden, a mini fridge, and a proper coffee machine. The room overlooked the...

This time was just a tad disappointing.We stayed in a lake view and garden view room. Spacious room, has had a bit of an upgrade, chairs reupholstered, furniture repolished, etc. But the gout around the bath...

Only the rather faded pool changing & locker facilities & towels supply let it down. Otherwise, the level of service, quality of food, a memorable introduction by Sommelier to a Mexican red wine and the room were superb. Our last stay was 6 years ago & they knew this!
