This was my first trip to the Lake District and I am so glad I chose this hotel for our stay. Wonderful surroundings with the most spectacular view of Lake Windermere, beautiful hotel, absolutely glorious meal at dinner and totally amazing staff all made our stay worth every penny. If I am being picky,and it seems churlish,I would have loved...

Our 3-night stay was a real pleasure - excellent staff, good room and very good food indeed. We were pleased that our room had a lake view which added to our "lake district experience". Highlights included the breakfasts - excellent choice, excellent quality, well served by friendly waiters and all the staff who made us feel genuinely welcome and for...

Many thanks for your kind review. I totally agree about the cheese and Chef does use local ones most of the time. I have insisted for 23 years that we have British cheese only at Linthwaite and we have always managed to have one or two Cumbrian ones amongst the choice. We hope to be able to welcome you back...

We have visited the Linthwaite 3 or 4 times now and we never seem to be able to fault it. All of the rooms are beautifully decorated and most are different. We have a different room every time and always love it. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are professional but what we particularly love is that the...

Okay, where to begin? I ask this question for as a recent visitor who checked my fellow trip advisor comments before booking I feel that the hotel really ripped me off and here's how. Firstly, when you check the pricing of the rooms you will note on Expedia for example that the prices of the rooms are indicated quite simply...

I love the fact that you picked out this to say: One thing I do love about Linthwaite is that nobody asks for your room number, you are known by your name. That makes us very happy because we work hard to make guests feel at home. January is a great time to come; the great indoors inside the great...

This is my favourite place to come and escape it all. I had my wedding here and all the guests stayed for the weekend. The hotel is cosy and feels like home, the rooms are gorgeous. The food is incredible and the staff are so welcoming and attentive. 10/10!

From entering the hotel you are looked after like royalty. The staff are friendly & helpful & the food is amazing.Sitting in the conservatory admiring the views over the lake is so relaxing, There is an outside terrace which must be a lovely spot to sit in summer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of the Lake District's best country house hotels, but unstuffy! Great views, acres of private grounds, fishing, golf nearby, hiking, walking, extreme sports all within easy access. Great food, from fine dining to the Unstuffy Hamburger! Many wines by the glass and beers from local macro breweries. Lots of staff to pamper you and help you relax. Two rooms have private hot tubs. ... more   less
