The room was beautiful and the breakfast was delicious.
No meals available at night Had to order breakfast before 3pm!!! No security lights in very dark car park
The rooms are well set out
Really creaky bed and as I said before, not much space in the 'luxury' room. I'd rate it as a 4* - definitely not 5*.
Lovely breakfast but decidedly average dinner. Stayed in the Meregill room which was nice but very small for the price we felt. Perhaps Windermere can just charge more because it's Windermere? Lovely spa bath though.
A birthday treat for my partner, I wasn't disappointed, we was made feel welcome, as soon as we entered the door, great place too stay, great food and excellent staff will go again
Receptionist was bad manored and argued with me, I asked for a replacement room, the lady refused, I asked to speak to the manager but was told she had left for the day. We had to call back at 5 pm However the manager never turned up .. I was left waiting around and asked for a full refund. I received a call at 5 pm explaining my issues. A refund was given and I left having to find a hotel at 6 pm
Too pricy for just a bed and breakfast didn't see no effort for being a five star
Breakfast was spot on
1/2 loo roll provided. Some small luxury toiletries would be nice. Breakfast too early sat & sun.
Location & staff
Excellent staff fabulous location will definitely return and recommend to others. Thoroughly enjoyable
Stuck in terrible snow and traffic and still 100's of miles away called hoping for a rearrange or refund. Did not entertain the idea. Very disappointing.
Lovely decor. Value for money & friendly helpful staff
The mattress on our luxury 4 poster bed was horrendous lumps and dips all over so didn't sleep well at all Restaurant closed because hotel was empty we have a young baby so couldn't go out late would have been good to know before booking
Beautifully presented hotel Great location Great staff
No mirror in the bedroom, we mentioned this on check out and was assured this would be rectified which I believe will be done
This was our second stay at the howbeck and we weren't disappointed. Lovely hotel in a great location. Very attentive staff and an excellent breakfast. We would also recommend Francines restaurant which was just a short walk from the hotel
My partner and I can honestly say we found nothing about the stay at the Howbeck that we could find fault with
Customer service very good Attention to detail excellent Room very well presented Breakfast top quality I had pre ordered flowers, chocolates and wine for arrival and all where in order and beautiful Location for all areas could not be better Decanter of sherry in the room is a nice touch
Waiting ten minutes for room to be ready whilst soaking wet and not being offered a towel or a hot drink just told about T and Conditions. Bags could have been taken to the room instead left in an unlocked restaurant for 3 hours.
Free car park, lots of hot water, clean and warm, champagne, robes and strawberries, great breakfast.
The bathroom in the superior suite was tiny! Too small for me to relax in and I'm 5 foot 3! The room is small for the price and made me think about spending an extra ten pounds to stay at another hotel.
The decor is lovely.
We noticed the wifi wasn't connecting in the room straight away and mentioned it to the staff, they said there was a a problem in the area but the wifi was working fine in the guest house which ment the separate routers were not working but after many complaints about it it was not resolved.
We loved our stay in the retreat which is separate from the guest house, very clean and you get your meals delivered to your room. The bed was amazing and the bathroom is to die for.
VERY LOW LIGHTING IN BEDROOMS AND BATHROOM -BAD FOR LADIES DOING THEIR HAIR .
VERY CLEAN-VERY HELPFULL STAFF-BREAKFAST CHOICE /BEAUTIFULL PREPARED/QUIET LOCATION BUT CLOSE TO VILLAGE AMENITIES-JUST A VERY NICE HOTEL .
We had a room at the front of the building and we like to have a window open a little, but found the road noise made this difficult
The staff were very friendly and location of the Howbeck is only 5 minute walk into Windermere. Very comfortable room and bed was excellent along with the good selection for breakfast.
Ordering breakfast on arrival and they did not get it right next morning. Fried eggs and sausages pre cooked and kept warm (hard when served)
price included breakfast
Good location situated about 200m from the town itself. Clean rooms with good facilities and all staff were extremely helpful.
Wi-Fi not too good. Sometimes had difficulty connecting.
Staff were excellent Nice touch - free small decanter of brandy Lovely breakfast Great quality room
- Breakfast time was a bit later than expected.
- The hotel was in the walking distance to train station and restaurant area. Easy bus access to Windermere Lake Pier. - The room had a bathtub with enough hot water and a variety of complimentary tea and coffee set. - All of the staff was friendly and helpful. - The breakfast was very good with options. - Baby cot was available on request.
Large spacious well decorated room, large comfy bed, fabulous breakfasts, very pleasant staff, would stay here again,
The staff especially Jess were friendly attentive and helpful.
