We spent the most delightful night here.On arrival in the pouring rain, our car was whisked away from us and we were warmly welcomed and taken to our garden suite, Dollywagon Pike. Spacious, very comfortable and fine views through the mist. Dinner was exceptional. Next morning, we were in the hot tub, drizzle and inquisitive heron notwithstanding. The hotel oozes...

My new wife and I spent a fantastic 3 nights in one the the spa lodges to get away for a few days following our wedding. Everything about the Gilpin was perfect for us. After months of the stress of organising a wedding being so well looked after was very welcome. We are both very fond of fine dining and...

As this is a place that it would be almost insulting to review, I would just like to mention their kindness when my team and I dropped in for coffee one day last week. I was keen to show my team what the highest end of this business looks like. I think there were shocked by just how marvellous it...

We've stayed here many times over the years but this is the first time since the Michelin star was awarded. Simply put, one of the most delicious and delicate meals we've ever had. Absolutely superb! The evening was enhanced by wonderful service from Masaki, she was extremely professional and very well-informed about every dish delivered, really lovely. We had a...

Stayed one night at a spa lodge on dinner, bed and breakfast. Our lodge was amazing - fantastic views, luxurious furniture and our own sauna, hot tube and steam room (and Nespresso machine). We even arranged to have a massage at the lodge, which was good. The lodge also had a remote controlled fire, which I loved! Lots of great...

ok, I've only been here once and I will have to dream of a second visit :) it's simply superb and made for very special occasions. I indulged in a Lake House spa weekend where the welcome was warm and the spa treatments could not have been better. It's also a great place to enjoy a little mindfulness if that...

We stayed here for my girlfriends birthday and it was worth the money. The room was fantastic, the service was exemplary and the food was too class. The restaurant recently gained a Michelin star, which is why we decided to visit the premises. The food definitely wasn't a disappointment and the waitress (Amelia), was very friendly and exceptionally good at...

We spent the weekend here - it was a surprise birthday treat for my husband. We stayed in one of the Garden suites and began the weekend unwinding in the outdoor hot tub with a glass of bubbly gazing at the stars! There wasn't a thing we could fault with the whole weekend - the hotel itself; the food which...

Gilpins We were in quite a muddle. Where were we going. What was on offer. We rejected the Travel Zoo approach as it was just was bed and breakfast. We wanted to dine in the restaurant. We booked on Gilpin's own website and ended up in the main house with dinner, bed and breakfast. Parking is tight but our car...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of Gilpin is a very passionate family and team, dedicated to creating lasting memories for their guests, who return time and again for celebrations and escapes. Warmth and friendliness are balanced with extraordinary service, exquisite décor and stunning culinary experiences. This five star hotel comprises two separate estates in the beautiful Lake District, with a luxury country house on each. At Gilpin Hotel all of the 25 bedrooms have lovely Lakeland views, most leading directly onto the gardens - including six Garden Suites with their own cedarwood hot tubs, and five fabulous detached Spa Lodges. The Spa Lodges were added in 2016, and are cedar-clad with king size beds, gorgeous bathrooms and a fabulously private en-suite spa each, with a convertible treatment area, steam room, rain maker shower, free standing oval stone bath, outdoor sauna and hydrotherapy hot tub surrounded by a walled garden. Add this to the mood lighting, fires, electric blinds and a state-of-the-art music system, and all of the senses are invigorated. Just a mile away at Gilpin Lake House, six gorgeous rooms share a fully staffed boutique hotel with a heated indoor swimming pool (for Lake House guests only), outdoor hot tubs and saunas, and exclusive access to 100 acres of grounds with a stunningly beautiful private lake. Our chauffeurs bring you to the hotel in the evening to dine. Dine in either the Michelin starred main restaurant, 'Hrishi', where Hrishikesh Desai combines great Lake District produce and classic methods to deliver unbelievable textures and flavours with just a twist of Asia, or in 'Gilpin Spice' a new informal restaurant transcending international boundaries, with an open kitchen focussing on dishes from the spice trail spanning the Indian sub-continent, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Japan and China. ... more   less
