Perfect in every way

Posted 15-May-2017
Pros: Everything
Cons: Very little
Location: Mountain Goat 10 Lakes Spectacular Tour
A very special place with old world comforts, impeccable service and the type of pampering I've never enjoyed at hotels three times the price. This old manor house sits high over Lake Windermere with gorgeous views, beautiful gardens and warm inviting public spaces. Our room was very large and extremely comfortable. The bath room was remodeled to the latest style. If I wanted to pick at something, it would be the too small and tight shower (although with great shower head, adjustable height, good water flow and a hand held option that every hotel should have. Our room was a bit too hot at night as all the rooms are heated at night together with no individual thermostats. There was a fan in the room and we were able to open the windows and cool the room down. The food is another story (and a better one!). It is simply outstanding across the board. The chef, his kitchen staff and the servers are very talented and professional. The breakfast pastries, fruits, cereals and fresh squeezed juices were all terrific. The full English breakfast was the best I've enjoyed anywhere. Our dinners were top shelf. We even had a light snack for dinner after a tiring day and the salads, chips and deserts were as good as the food in the formal dining room! We had an amazing stay and strongly recommend the Linthwaite to anyone visiting the Lake District

Amazing place to stay!

Posted 22-Apr-2017
The only reason I am not rating this place as Excellent is that no higher rating available! Stunningly beautiful place in an amazing area! Only 15 minutes to the closest town with unexpected international dining options .... Or only 3.50 gbp taxi fare. Amazing Staff attended to every possible need plus a few more weeks never thought of. This hotel should be boitcamp for all hotels!

Relaxing weekend with good food and staff

Posted 27-Feb-2017 on Hotels
Staff were very helpful and friendly and food was excellent. Open fires were disappointing as there was only one proper log fire in the reception area and fake fires in the the lounges. However we had a lovely, relaxing weekend at Linthwaite House.

Outstanding hospitality, luxurious rooms & service

Posted 17-Feb-2017
Pros: Outstanding hospitality and friendliness of all staff
Location: Windermere town, lake, water sports, countryside hikes, wolf walks, GoApe
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!

Good as it gets!

Posted 24-Oct-2016
Location: The lakes are close by with all its attractions, but the Hotel provides an oasis from the large amount of tourists visiting the area.
We stayed 3 nights. The ambience was excellent with lake views and expansive grounds. The hotel was not too big, and the food was excellent quality. The staff were attentive and delivered top rate service. The room was comfortable with excellent quality bedding, bathroom towels and accessories.
