    The staff, rooms and food are absolutely superb.

    Couldnt get a table for evening meal but that shows the quality of the menu and food. The Lingmell had no bath either which was a little disappointing.

    The location was out of this world, it was so close to the lake, shops and the surrounding countryside. The Howbeck inside was beautiful, the furniture was amazing. The staff were lovely, very friendly the breakfast was one of the best we have ever had. We would stay there again and have already recommended it to other people. Shower and bath were fantastic.

    The only negatives were, no Wi-Fi in our room but, you can live without it!!! Our room was over the kitchen and could be a bit noisy in the morning, good job we were up and about to take full advantage of the surroundings.

    The service from all staff the minute we stepped into the hotel. The room as it was just lovely as well as being clean and presented beautifully with pre-ordered champagne and flowers for our anniversary. The rose petals were not ordered and Dani one of the staff members took the time out of her day to make extra effort to make it special for us which was just a lovely thing to do. The breakfast, cooked perfectly and really tasty. The cost as I found for what we received the price was reasonable and it was a last minute booking.

    There was nothing negative in any way.

    Location & friendly,helpful staff.

    Poor room,cramped,with a faulty venetian blind that kept us awake at night because it couldn't shut, Staff were very helpful at short notice but the solution was to hang a cloth over it making the room dark by day, but at least we could sleep at night.Poor value for money.Getting in or out of the bath/shower was risky for the elderley. (we are 82).No hand holds or rails nor any anti-slip mat in the bath.

    The staff were extremely helpful and polite, the standard of cleanliness was excellent as was the food and service at breakfast. They also awarded us a little extra time to vacate our rooms.

    It was closer to the road than I had expected especially if you are sleeping at the front of the house. Last breakfast 9.30 was a little early for a Sat/Weekend.

    The hotel was clean and nicely decorated. Good location. good breakfast and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

    The advert was misleading, there is no spa at The Howbeck, it is in a different hotel in a different town and you only have a 2 hour slot. The Howbeck is a B & B and not a spa hotel as the ad led me to believe. Wifi did not work and even though my booking for a 'Superior Double' was confirmed via bookings.com the room was double booked and we went into a much smaller standard room. As this was a treat for my husbands birthday it was especially disappointing.

    Spotlessly clean, friendly staff, great breakfast! Room was a little on the small side but not uncomfortable, and made up for by the spa bath. Would definitely come back!

    i did not not like anything, i stayed in the windergill suite and it had just about enough room to walk in, they smelt smoke in the corrider and i am not a smoker and they fined me 200pound without any evidence, i mean i dont smoke, i do not recommend this to anyone, the staff on entry was unprofessionall and not welcoming

    i hated it it should not be 5 stars should be 1 star. iv stayed in hotels that are 2 star with better service than this, food was horrible eewww. Stayed 3 nights the worst nights of my life

    the staff were very attentive, polite and friendly, the hotel was immaculate

    we stayed in the Mickleden and we both thought the room would be better without a four poster bed, we felt this would give the room more light and make it feel a little larger
