Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2012

We have visited this hotel as a couple a few times over the past couple of years and have never been disappointed, so this time decided to bring our friends along with us. The staff were as usual were friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding, great value afternoon tea that is described as small (sandwiches, cake & Scones) but any more and we would not have had room for that terrific dinner mmmm!!! The menu was so yummy we all had trouble deciding what to choose, Hopefully we will be back soon. Definitely not one to miss x

We had a lovely stay over the Easter long weekend at the hotel. Its got lovely grounds on the hill nearby Bowness, which is also a lovely setting on the river. This was a trip with our daughter who is coming on two.

The room itself was huge (was the garden room) with a nice modern TV. It looked like it had two single beds pushed together to make a king bed, I say looks because I normally hate that but the bed was very comfortable and I didn't notice it at all! The rooms are clean and the cleaners are, well, they're ninjas. We would go to breakfast and the room would be made up by the time we were back. Also a good turn down service which is a nice touch. Had a nice view out the room which I would post but camera troubles prevent.

The hotel is a conversion so stairs up and down, but a maximum of two floors so manageable. It has a nice looking pool, although we didn't find time to try it. It has ample parking which is near the hotel.

Breakfasts are excellent, with a great mix of buffet options, or cooked to order. The full english breakfast is excellent and while the dining room is busy in the morning the staff are both efficient and friendly. They were especially helpful with out little one.

The hotel doesn't allow children in the dining room in the evening but if you book they will set up the full restaurant experience for you in the library. This was actually quite fun as the parents had a sort of collegial discussion as their offspring were either polite or misbehaving a little. This was well worth it. Take them at their word, its a small space so book this either before you get there or immediately on arrival. If I had a criticism for this area its that they time their table service as you would want in a nice restaurant. I would suggest asking parents if they want to accelerate it a little to get people in and out and little ones to bed.

Food is great, although I would advise to order anything like steak a level or two below what you want. Ie Medium-well should be medium or below. My steak was incinerated. This isn't unique to this hotel, seems to be relatively common in the North (inc Scotland).

Limited room service menu but the cheese plate is incredible value. Great range of cheeses, grapes etc and very reasonably priced!

One downside of visiting with children (their were lots of families who seemed to be having a cracking time) is that there are other guests who commented that they didn't expect kids in the dinning room for breakfast (no doubt mentally referring to the dining restrictions) and we had a complaint to our room when our daughter woke up in the morning and cried inconsolably for 10mins. These didn't ruin our experience but would make me wonder if this is perfect for a young family. Given its proximity to the lake and lots of great things to do with kids I wouldn't be too put off, and on balance would stay here again.

Got a brilliant deal through 'Secret Escapes' and we were stunned by how wonderful it all was.
Afternoon tea was delicous, as was our evening meal and breakfast.
We stayed in room 107 with a view of the garden and Lake Windemere.
The only fault was having to go home! We will return.

This was our 4th stay at Lindeth Howe and the 3rd time in the same beautiful Lake view room. As we have come to expect, the Hotel is comfortable and welcoming with pleasant, experienced staff. The food , again as expected , was of an excellent standard -- if anything even better this year than last. Breakfasts are exceptional--my wife particularly likes the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs -- and it is nice to have the hot breakfast served rather than self service. Dinner is an event- starting with the canapes in the lounge while perusing the menu, and ending with coffee and petits fours in the lounge again. We were fortunate with the weather and were able to enjoy some time sitting and relaxing in the lovely gardens. We will definitely be staying there again.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a lake view room
