We stayed at the hotel for a break away in February for my boyfriends birthday. The whole hotel was decorated beautifully, the staff were friendly and welcoming, the location was amazing with a view looking right onto lake Windermere. The only thing was average was the food. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the hotel for 1 night for a wedding. It would have been 2 nights had the hotel not quoted an extortionate amount for the one night before (£500 bed and breakfast!). The excuse being it was the easter weekend. That aside, the hotel, scenery and grounds are really beautiful. The wedding was really well planned, food tasty...

Bed was very comfortable with good quality linen. We dined in the Belsfield restaurant on both nights and enjoyed our...

Stayed for one night. Building is situated on top of a hill overlooking Windermere Lake, which from the outside looks rather grand and has some breathtaking views from the garden area etc. The room itself was nice and clean, although quite small and not with the best view (straight out onto what looked like retirement apartments who could probably see...

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights for our wedding anniversary having read about it in a magazine. First impressions when arriving were very good, it looked great and the location could not have been better. The interior of the hotel was perfect, all Laura Ashley furnishings and décor.

I stayed here as a treat pre my birthday in January when the kitchen was out of action and managed to get a fairly good deal. The hotel was everything I imagined.

Perfectly situated & furnished, wonderful views, friendly & helpful staff. We stayed on a package Dinner + B&B in a garden room. These are on the small side though access to the garden is a plus.
