Having had a voucher arrive with a birthday card, I can't tell you how much we were looking forward to this day at the Hillthwaite Hotel. Billed as a Rejuvenating Day with afternoon cream tea, I checked with the hotel that they would be able to cater for my wife's gluten intolerance which they confirmed, admirably quickly, that they could....

We spent a weekend in a cosy room. It is as described but was very clean, comfortable and well decorated. There are fantastic views from the dining room and conservatory. We took advantage of the pool, sauna and steam room. The pool is VERY shallow. I hit my knees while turning during my lengths. Would be suitable for children but...

Good morning Farah, i am terribly sorry regarding your experience with us on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, and that you felt the apology and complimentary drinks given to you were half hearted. We had a new member of staff working on Tuesday night (it was his first night) and unfortunately some human error did occur during his first shift....

We have stayed at Hillthwaite House Hotel, many times over many years and again, have had a lovely stay. The views from the hotel are stunning and although accessed by a steep drive, it is well worth it for an enviable view of the lake. We have stayed in several of the rooms over the years, at differing prices, and...
