Perfect in every way
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
