As a lover of all things beautiful and someone who is keen to experience new places, sample good food and simply enjoy life to the full.. I will only ever write reviews on places that I feel truly passionate about - Holbeck Ghyll is one of those places. My boyfriend and I visited this hotel last year when I treated...

Decided to google ' best afternoon tea in lake district' whilst staying in Bowness on Windermere and as this was one of the places featured locally we decided to call on the off chance. We were in luck and were seated in a beautiful room on arrival with a fabulous view of the lake. Champayne tea for me whilst DH...

We spent just one night at Holbeck Ghyll, but certainly plan to return. As we had our dog with us, we stayed in a room outside the main hotel, but this was more than made up for by the huge windows and gorgeous view. I also suspect it was more peaceful than the main building. There was a small flag...

My husband and I (early 30s) visited here on a Saturday afternoon for afternoon tea. We sat in the lounge where the fireplace is as we had our dog with us. The setting is lovely. The sandwiches were served first followed by the cakes and scones.....they all tasted delicious! The portions were generous and we took some cakes away with...

Completely agree with previous reviewer- it's about the big picture. Yes one could pick minor faults but the overall experience is superb. On that basis I will definitely return and surely that's the best review of an establishment ....,, The General Manager is most charming and very hospitable. He runs a tight ship and had complete oversight of everything. The...

Any hotel, no matter where you go , will always have little things that people can complain about. This is true of Holbeck Ghyll, but really, its faults are trivial. Yes, some of the rooms are a bit awkward, but you are staying in a beautiful old arts and crafts style lodge that was never meant to be a modern...

We stayed in Jeremy Fisher a lovely large room with seating areas inside and out with amazing lake views. Superb comfy king bed great shower and large bath. Outside seating area is not private as on a path with people walking by we would prefer something more secluded. Service excellent all round. Breakfast superb quality and choice eggs benedict and...

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Holbeck Ghyll earlier this week to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We have been staying there for 16 years now and I am delighted to report that it is as good as ever. We always try and book the Lord Lonsdale room which has splendid views over Windermere to the fells beyond. Housekeeping...

Stayed here for a couple of nights last weekend. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special - Bags taken to room whilst given the tour. Then into the room and it was very spacious with a balcony facing the lake. Bed extremely comfy. Evening meal was absolutely lovely and although I was "talked" out of my...

This was our first stay at this lovely hotel. We stayed in Easdale, a stunning room a short distance away from the main hotel. Very modern, in total contrast the the main house. This property is still undergoing renovation and I dare say will be wonderful when complete. At the moment there are large roof supports sticking out, which presumably...

Thank you for your review I am pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Easdales bedroom view I have to agree with you is stunning with its floor to ceiling windows and when the new balcony and electronic sliding windows get fitted it will solve the ventilation issue. I like your idea of a velux in the bathroom; I will...
