Poor food service and breakfast.
A beautiful house perched above Windemere, the hotel Has been recently refurbished and the outside grey slate building opens to a very smart modern interior- we had the "cosy double" up in the eaves which was fine for room. Breakfast was very tasty and served promptly- we are on the restaurant one night and the quality was excellent- with the added benefit if the pool and heat rooms to relax after a day out it was a wonderful weekend
Staid in a suite which was very spacious, had plenty of facilities and good views.
Good hotel with good food and facilities. Location on top of a small hill but not much of a problem and only a short walk into town.
The breakfast was amazing. Alongside the view and steam room.
The TV remote didn't work.
Warm friendly knowledgeable staff great food ambient to the lakes
Room over the kitchen noisey
Good value one night stay on the deal we got. All felt clean fresh and cared for. We didn't have an evening meal on the premises but we are to understand that it is very good quality. Really impressed at how even the simple things are really well done for breakfast. Handy location for a short walk into town with fabulous views over Windermere. Staff were very warm, welcoming and helpful. We would happily stay for longer, at the right price of course.
Only negative we could really consider is the the short haul up the hill from Windermere, but it is the Lake District after all and we need the exercise.
The view from our room and how warm it was, the food was excellent as we'll asthenosphere rapport from the staff
Steam room not working
Nice property Good wifi Good views Great breakfast
Room heater stopped working middle of the night - and the receptionist that night was totally unhelpful and not at all service oriented. Finally she gave me a portable heater finally after a lot of request.
The hotel is lovely, all staff very friendly. We had an evening meal in the restaurant and I could not fault the food.
The reception and restaurant staff The quality of the half board meals The beautiful views The cosy lounge
no bath which is disappointing at £129 twin room
Hotel was in a central location for to get around. The area was very beautiful and clean .
The hotel was in my opion was either a 3 star hotel trying to be a 4 star one. The service was very slow , 1 waiter to 14 tables, the waiters were forever apologizing for the delay. The hotel was running on a SHOESTRING BUDGET as far as I could make out. The pool area was under refurbishing, which ment that it could not be used.
Staff friendly and helpful at all times. Room clean and well maintained throughout stay.
Restaurant service at dinner poor. Very long wait between courses. Not sure whether this was a staffing issue or not. Early evening the bar very poorly staffed, relying very much on an already busy receptionist to man the bar. This was all at variance to our previous stays at Hillthwaite. I do know that there have been significant staff changes recently so maybe that has caused the change in service.
Service was excellent food was gorgeous and cleanliness was exceptional and pristine . The staff are very warm and friendly very efficient nothing Ito much trouble, even speaking over the phone to tbe receptionists was a pleasure .
The staff at breakfast wasn't very good we ordered coffee and toast an we were waiting half an hour the breakfast the next day was burnt like it was left from the day before and re heated...we asked for a room with a balcony or a view because it was our honey moon and we got neither.
The facilities and location just perfect
Staff were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for you especially Jade the receptionist and the Housekeeping staff, very comfortable hotel with excellent food
Pool depth is a bit awkward at the shallow end, not good to swim in, and depth markers are wrong, they are from the poolside not the water depth.
Outstanding views, professional and friendly staff, excellent restaurant. Only a short walk from Bowness centre but feels like its in the middle of nowhere.
Friendly staff , good food
We had a dog with us and there was no where to let the dog have a run in the grounds ,we had to walk quite a bit to let him have a comfort break ,not too good in the pouring rain
The location and the main hotel is beautiful. The views from the hotel are stunning. A very high standard of cleanliness and the staff are lovely.
This was our first holiday in 10 years and we chose it for the pool facilities and the wifi. The kids moaned because the wifi wasn't working properly and we had to keep ringing reception for new codes. My eldest didn't sleep for two nights due to a big dip in a pull down chair bed. Our room overlooked a car park not a garden courtyard as stated when booked and was very dark.The food was undercooked and the kids hated it, hence we booked out a day early. A costly mistake.
Good food. Pleasant staff. Nice views. Quiet position within easy reach of Windermere and Boness.
Room too small. AUN suite bathroom was a shower room.
The staff were excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble.
The pool was small. The bar/lounge area was too near reception, it was the main thoroughfare to some rooms and not large enough unless you wanted to go into the conservatory. I believe this area is being remodelled in Dec of 2014 so this should improve on the otherwise excellent hotel. I would gladly recommend a stay here.
