Enjoyed a week-end stay in a lake view room, it was such a good view we left the curtains open. We had breakfast and dinner and the food was excellent along with the service. We used the spa facilities, which were exceptionally good value for residents. The location is good, with lovely was close by, even if you aren't a...

Well restored original period hotel in the Lake District. There are a lot of caveats when booking, so that we didn't feel particularly welcome! We had a nice room with a lovely view, but although there was a wardrobe, we couldn't find anywhere to unpack our clothes, so they probably don't expect anyone to stay more than one night! Very...

We took a Secret Escapes break at Holbeck Ghyll which gave us a Lake View room, dinner, breakfast and use of the Spa facilities for £269, which is roughly half the price of the package on the hotel website. The room was delightful with plenty of space, a big bed , a gorgeous view of Lake Windermere across the gardens,...

A stop off on the way to Scotland. Big fan of the trip, so booked a very expensive room and dinner.

Second time we have stayed in this hotel. Had a room in the Lodge with views over Windermere. Very attentive but unobtrusive service. Excellent food. Would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a special treat.

I didn't want to leave this place. They have an outdoor hot tub over looking one of the most beautiful lakes in the country. Then I had a lovely massage followed with a afternoon tea what I couldn't fault.

Dear Mrs Nice, We agree it has to be one of the best ways to take in the splendour of lake Windermere, watching guests sipping bubbles in the hot tub in the beautiful weather we have had over the last few weeks has made us all a little jealous! Thank you for taking the time to send us a review...

The views from the hotel are undeniably spectacular. Some areas look a little tired, like the tennis court area. The set up for the evening is very formal, however, as we were there for a special occasion (10 year wedding anniversary) it was a nice treat to be so well looked after! The staff were so attentive at all times,...
