Outstanding hospitality, luxurious rooms & service
Linthwaite has to be the best hotel I've ever stayed in so far. Not only is the property and it's grounds absolutely stunning with their own large lovely pond, a summer house, a meadow and a part of the woods, the view of the Windermere lake is also beautiful. The rooms are luxurious and comfortable, as are all the other parts of the hotel - the opulent lounges and bar, and the elegant restaurant. We stayed at the hotel for a Valentine's holiday and even received a complimentary room upgrade - such a wonderful and unexpected little surprise! As you walk in, there is staff already waiting and opening the door for you ready to take your bags and have a very warm welcome and a pleasant check-in. The staff are extremely attentive, your drinks can be brought to you anywhere in the hotel lounges, the reception before dinner is absolutely wonerful, the selection of food for breakfast and dinner is outstanding, the attentiveness of staff who readily top up all your drinks and clear away any plates without you even noticing is wonderful! Little touches and great hospitality, providing weather forecasts, tourist information and making you feel very much at home and extremely welcome, it does not feel like a typical hotel, rather a very welcoming residence. Absolutely outstanding quality of rooms, facilities and service! Will definitely visit again!
