Spar outdoor hot pool.
Took my wife for a mid pregnancy relaxation. I am very pleased I chose Armathwaite Hall. The room was excellent with a lovely view, all staff very friendly and good service. The spa treatment was particularly good. I would highly recommend!
Staff, infinity pool, Spa
Spa /pool /outdoor heated pool was spacious & well designed. Attention to detail in the comfortable room-e.g. turn down service in evening (bins emptied, extra 'biccies' etc) Brasserie evening menu -new chef bringing fresh & tasty meals Very friendly & professional staff.
Breakfast in the main dining room was disappointing. Fresh fruit salad did not taste fresh. The Cumbrian cooked breakfast tasted as though it had been kept warm for a length of time with only the poached egg being cooked to order.
Friendly helpful staff,food was of an extremely high standard and very good value.Room was very comfortable.
Location - Lake view. Spa and pool. Food. Christmas decorations.
Service was a bit patchy - took quite a while for orders to come sometimes.
Free to use excellent spa facilities
Rooms is the annexe aren't as nice as in the main hotel
Quiet unassuming ambience comfortable quiet rooms excellent shower very comfortable beds very clean superb small swimming pool with helpful staff
no control over heating in bedroom and window opening extremely difficult to open six course meal left something to be desired in parts handle on wardrobe coming off limited space in en-suite
Spa facilities, loung areas and food.
Booked a twin room but was given a double room. The beds were "unzipped" to separate but still placed together. With my daughter so not a huge problem just not expected.
10 years ago we got married at Armathwaite and it was perfect!!! If u are wanting to get married there do it they know what they are doing. We booked Armathwaite again for our 10 year anniversary and we loved it. The best thing was remembering the smell of the open fire and having a glass of sherry. We had our meal in the lake room staff was lovely food is excellent as always and the setting is breath taking. We will always go back to Armathwaite.
That we had to go home. :(
Not only was the setting picturesque, the hotel itself absolutely stunning but the staff were incredible! There were a number of people that clearly often stayed there and the staff made them feel like family. We had the same treatment. The staff remembered our names every day and couldn't do enough for us.
Welcome at Reception Friendliness of ALL staff Atmosphere was terrific Food was sublime Dining room was cosy and in a beautiful setting Xmas decor SUPERB
The Hall is a beautiful building with many great features. The situation of the hall in the grounds was lovely. Having a walk close by, enabling us to leave the driving for the day, was a real bonus. The food at every meal was very good. The spa was excellent.
We had dinner in both Bistro and dining room. The bistro we found rather cold, though the food was okay. Although the formality of the dining room was a little too much. Our room was well equipped though rather small. We were in a club room.
I booked the room for my sister and her husband. On their return, they were full of praise for the hotel, staff and food. They are wanting to return in the new year and had a truly wonderful time. It was a special birthday and the staff made it an enjoyable and memorable stay. Thank you so much for your kindness. Mrs Yarker
Lovely spa facilities and food
told that the room had been upgraded but only difference seemed to be the twin beds pushed together under a double headboard! Room still nice though. Log fires all smoked us out of the lounges on both nights.
Attention to detail in every aspect.
Bed for my wife was comfortable but me a little too firm.
Staff friendly. Pets well looked after. Welcoming glass of sherry delicous.
Coffee very expensive in Brasserie
We really enjoyed our stay, loved all the Xmas trees and decorations, made it so Christmassy, and very welcoming. The staff were superb, from checking in to leaving. Food fantastic, just wish there had been vegetables with main course. The spa, pool, gym outdoor area fabulous. Would love to spend Xmas or new year there.
The room was well equipped but would have like a larger room, but it did the job, cosy and warm
The hotel is very comfortable with cosy lounges and very well appointed public areas. Spa facilities are excellent.
Rather disappointed with the Brasserie food. Some dishes could do with attention to detail - peeling the potatoes for the chips would be a good start. Also need to get the dishes out in a timely manner when 'busy'.
Outdoor infinity jacuzzi. Comfy relaxer loungers in spa. Fabulously grand building. - Helpful and cheerful staff. - Excellent food. We ate in the restaurant on both nights and were all very impressed with both the setting and the food quality. - Real fires in lounges. - Little private patio area outside with seats straight from our bedroom.
- The weather (but you can't blame them for that!). - Our rooms were plush, but a little on the small side (not much circulation space).
The surroundings and building were beautiful. Very relaxing stay and well looked after!
