Lovely hotel , fabulous food and of very high standards in room, food and attentive friendly staff. However though the Hotel does not have spa facilities on site. You have to travel to lake house and even if you book a spa treatment you still cannot use the pool and facilities. You have to get a Complimentary pass and travel...

Booked for an opulent weekend away. Everything was lovely, the room, the room service, the helpful, friendly but unobtrusive staff. Dinner on Sunday was fantastic, from the canopies and cocktails to the last spoonful of pudding, everything has a rich and rounded in flavour. Lovely.

We spent 5 nights in this very comfortable inn. The service and attention to detail is amazing. Everyone knew our name before the end of the first day. The food is Michelin quality...really. The menu is creative and has a number of options. The Wine list is extensive but light on New World wines. A good selection of burgundy and...

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
