One of our reasons for choosing this hotel was because it had a restaurant and bar. As their website says at the end of a day's walking you just want to relax. There was no restaurant!! This apparently closed in APRIL. A big disappointment.
Our room had a tiny television (approx 20") standing on a very small table about 1 ft off the ground. The only comfortable way to watch it would be to sit on the floor!
A third negative (and potentially dangerous) aspect was the use of paper bath mats. The potential for slipping as one climbed out of the bath was enormous especially as there was no handrail. My husband and I had to help eachother out of the bath/shower
and we are fit and able.

A fantastic place run by a lovely welcoming couple. The quiet road was an easy stroll to Bowness or Windermere with good eating places. We would happily recommend the Thornbank to anyone and look forward to another stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Linthwaite, the reception, manager and staff could not have been more helpful throughout.
The quality of the restaurant is simply outstanding, although not cheap, you really do get value for money and I have to say that the chef created some of the best dishes we have ever tasted.
Although the hotel is above Lake Windermere, the view is largely obscured by trees and the lake could not be seen from most of the rooms, notwithstanding the hotel is well situated for a trip to any part of the Lake District and the grounds themselves are well maintained with comfortable seating and loungers for a coffee or drinks.
After a hike round the Lakes the thought of the dining experience to follow was wonderful. We will certainly go again.
Thanks to all at the Linthwaite.
Spectacular views and thoroughly enjoyable stay. Staff professional and polite,nothing too much trouble.Room large and well appointed,couldn't fault anything,even the weather stayed fine.Will stay again.

Had a 3 night stay at Holly Lodge. Hotel was clean and tidy. Staff were friendly. Room was nice and clean with fluffy towels. It wasnt until the morning came that the hotel came into its own. Breakfast! Make an excuse and come and stay at Holly Lodge just for the breakfast. They have a certificate in the lounge that is a 'breakfast award' . That award is totally justified. It was plentiful and absolutely delicious! Cant speak highly enough of Holly Lodge and its owner and staff. Apart from the breakfast its located within walking distance of the shops/restaurants/bars of Windermere and only a short drive to Keswick and Kendal. If you're feeling energetic then its a 45 minute drive to the base of Scafell Pike. Go to Holly Lodge!
