The Linthwaite House Hotel is located on the hills of the Lake District in Windermere, perfect for a stop over on the way to Scotland. We arrived in the evening welcomed by the Receptionist on duty and escorted to our room. Room was well appointed and show around was offered. On our way out for dinner we were recommended to...

Unlucky is right. I'm really sorry about the problem you had with the toilet. Thankfully these things don't happen all the time, and it's a shame it happened to you. I will be having a word with our manager and we will be getting back to you again about it, because we should have done something for you. As you...

Having married at the Hotel some years ago, we have returned several times since and are always impressed by this wonderful hotel. The staff may have changed over the years (Mary - you were an angel!) - but we have always found that the team are attentive and welcoming. The food is excellent, from a sublime afternoon tea, to breakfast...

Looking at the reviews of this hotel I have to agree with all of them. It is a beautiful hotel, set in lovely grounds with pleasant staff. our bedroom was rather small - as we couldnt stretch to the more pricier rooms. The one thing that did put us off somewhat was the very hushed atmosphere in the hotel in...

We booked a last minute 3 day break on what purported to be a deeply discounted deal of £290 per room DBB apparently only available by phoning. At rack rate it would have been overpriced for what you get, While we were there we were offered a fourth night at £190 so suspect we missed out on a saving we...

Many thanks for your kind and objective review. The rates do of course vary according to supply and demand. We offer people staying the chance to stay on longer for less when we can if there is availability. Lead times for bookings used to be 40 days and now are more like 40 hours, so it is difficult to manage...

Thanks very much for your kind review, and as you state we have already corresponded. It is quite unusual for our rooms to spark off an air conditioning request. Building regulations now make new build rooms so well sealed we have to install a/c, which somehow defeats the government's aims of 'more green'. I know that many guests like to...

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
