Just a mile from Lake Windemere, and surrounded by wildlife and countryside that inspired Beatrix Potter on nearby Hill Top Farm, this hotel offers peaceful accommodations and a traditional bar.
Score from 155 reviews Excellent
Food was great, staff were really friendly, and the grounds of the hotel were stunning. Great place for a short break or Weekend stay. We honeymooned there in 1989, so decided to go back for a look for our Silver wedding. We won't wait 25 years to go back again, it was wonderful.
My room over looked the Car Park rather than the Grounds - but it didn't detract from my stay.
The wonderful welcome from Lizzie at reception. She understood young children and had them eating out of her hand
The atmosphere was a bit stuffy in the Dining Room. That made it difficult to relax
Room was perfect had an amazing view. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was lovely.
Bowness itself there were a lot of hen & stag parties. If you plan on eating out book well in advance!
The hotel is very smart and the lounge areas are cosy and beautifully decorated with heather tones and woolly tartans - an ideal place to relax with pre-dinner drinks. The restaurant is excellent, and the bed was turned down at night which was a nice touch. The staff were very helpful and polite and knowledgeable about the local area.
The Location and grounds are lovely. The food was very good quality and worth the money.
A bit more attention to detail in rooms. Eg better quality bedding, pillows
Old world charm. Lovely setting.
No lift. No help with bags to 3rd floor room. Room quite small and in the eaves. Restaurant expensive and not to our taste so did not use. I can see why others like this hotel but it wasn't for us.
Excellent service with peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings. An ideal setting for the finish to our ruby wedding anniversary holiday at the Italian lakes.
Only having a 2 night break. We would have much preferred a longer stay. Maybe next time.
Some of the staff were very kind and helpful.
It is a lovely house to stay in with lots of information about Beatrix Potter's residency. The food was of a very high standard and the dining room staff were very efficient and amenable.
The welcome was very brusque as if the reception staff were too busy. The pool was very disappointing and the changing rooms poorly designed. In a unisex changing room the two very small showers should not have a thin curtain in front of them - they should have a door!
in a quiet part of the hotel,didn't hear the other guests. beautiful grounds excellent and friendly staff
room needed re decorating! whirl pool bath didn't work
Overpriced. No wifi in rooms as stated online.
Staff were great. Food fantastic Lake view from room in the roof was wonderful
Internet not up to scratch.Advertised as available in all rooms.Comes and goes and you need to find a spot in the room where it will work
The house is pretty lovely
Three rooms booked, two were lovely the third a totally different standard for a £10 difference. We would not allow our mother to stay in this room as she was a single having just lost our father. Second class citizen because you're widowed, not good. No vegetarian option for dinner, very small portions served when after a full days travelling was not satisfactory. The key to our room did not work which caused distress and spare key had to be used. When offered coffee after dinner hotel only had sour milk and had to go shopping for fresh. Lovely venue - poorly managed.
Morning receptionist had a huge personality and was very helpful and friendly .
Children's meal pizza was a piece of French bread with tomatoe puree and a slice of cheese on the top.it was not eaten. My grand daughter did not wish me to complain at the time . We were booked into the library at 6.30 and had to ask when we would be served.the meal with two children finished just before 8.30 past the 3 year olds bedtime.
Staff location parking hotel all ex excellent.
Food overpriced an very poor what their was of it. Glasses a disgrace half pint glass with markings to serve my wife a g and t. Breakfast poor. Nosalt in the salt cellar. Wine list limited. Little attention to detail if any . someone needs to review food and drink s. No managers or assistant managers visible during stay.1
Beautiful grounds. Very lovely hotel. Excellent tea and breakfast.
Rooms booked through booking.com are the worst in the hotel.
The friendliness and willingness to help. Wonderful weekend stay!
location; cleanliness; large room with openable windows for fresh air and to hear the birds. Breakfast was very good
the staff member who received us on check-in could have been a little more welcoming (perhaps we were expecting a similar reception to our previous night in Bainbridge which was superb). The hotel was much bigger than I had expected as I thought it was gong to be more of a country B'nB
Very clean rooms. Friendly staff
Was not told that the pool closed upon check in, our room wasnt ready and wouldnt be ready till 3pm, which was fine, so we headed out for the day arriving back at 7.30pm, we were told we wasnt allowed to swim as pool closed at 8pm, we arranged our day so we were able to go for a swim. my 7 year old was left very disappointed.
It's a beautiful hotel & the gardens are stunning.The staff are excellent & go the extra mile to welcome/help you -hope to return for a longer stay- thank you everyone at the hotel :-)
Slight confusion over double room via booking.com but hotel luckily sorted it out but failed to inform us of upgrade of the room incurring extra charges till check out but once again they sorted it out for us which we greatly appreciated again thank you
The house and garden was wonderful and our room was excellent with fantastic views over the lake. The relaxing atmosphere at breakfast and the keen and helpful staff.
Whilst the breakfast was overall very good the scrambled egg was lumpy so I couldn't eat it. Also on the first night we ordered drinks at the bar which was put on our room so were surprised when the next night we were asked if we wanted to pay cash as we assumed it wasn't allowed. When we checked out we found we had been charged £2 for the privilege!! This should be pointed out
Just loved staying at Lindeth Howe, The staff were very helpful, even allowed me to paint in their garden shed one day. The restaurant food was marvellous, especially the dinner at night..amazing food with sorbent between courses etc. The gardens are beautiful. We had a loft with views into the garden..Just wonderful...One of the best places I have been to this holiday.
lack of choice for evening meals
I love the traditional feel about the place, the quality of furnishings and the daily chamber maid, the excellent standard of food (wonderful chef), the dining staff were lovely as were the bar staff, who were courteous, pleasant and well turned out. The gardens are a definite draw for us too. The standard of cleanliness is very good, a must for us! We have visited before and will visit again.
Our bed was uncomfortable (we stayed in room 101) it has a big dip in the middle, our previous room had a far more comfortable bed.
