“Perfect venue for a very special occasion!”
Reviewed 14 January 2012

We enjoyed a 2 night break at the Lindeth Howe in September and, despite the awful weather, we had an amazing time - topped off with a surprise proposal from my boyfriend.

The staff were amazing and sent up a plate of goodies and champagne to our room - the next day we came home to a congratulations card from them. It's touches like this that really set this hotel apart from the competition.

The food was AMAZING! we had the 5 course dinner and couldn't fault it. Desserts were fabulous with a touch of Heston flair! Service was great without being intrusive.

We will be back and the Lindeth will always have a special place in my heart!

Come here to be looked after - friendly competent staff, very comfortable rooms with lovely touches - turned down beds, chocs on pillow, fresh towels at night, and the food is of the best, after a cosy drink in the bar/lounge with canapes to start with, in front of a cheering fire - and the views are glorious.

Room Tip: If you have mobility problems, ask for a room on the ground floor, as there is no lift

Review a bit late but we have been away!

We stayed in early December for the second time and were given a lake-view room. Everything was perfect. The food, location and furnishings are wonderful and the staff cannot do enough to make your stay a memorable one. Thank you once again - we'll be back!!!

Being huge Beatrix potter fans, we chose Lindeth Howe because of the BP connection...she used to own it and wrote Timmy tiptoes there. Easy to get to Hilltop from here, too (ferry/bus). We had a lake view room, but you need to ask for this when booking. It's about a mile out of Windemere, but the walk is easy along lovely English countryside. Food is lovely. Really good breakfast. Expect to dress for dinner.

Room Tip: Specify what you want when booking - eg lake view, but expect to pay more for this.

Had an amazing 4 night break over Christmas with my husband and in-laws. Husband and I stayed in the Westmorland suite which is georgeous. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food is truly excellent. We met many people who have been returning for years and I can see why. I can also see us joining their ranks as I am already looking at booking another visit!

Had a 4 night break over New Year. Excellent hotel, very friendly and informal staff, excellent facilities, excellent food, good activities although the treasure hunt (optional) was a bit too long. Highly recommended and this is borne out by the number of returning guests we met.
