Expensive but worth every penny! Total luxury and you are made to feel that you are the only guests there. We have been twice now and really recommend the Lake House because the pool and spa are onsite. Rooms have everything you could possibly need whichever you chose. The Spa Lodges are fabulous - forget visiting the Lake District- you...

My husband and I had an excellent meal here as a birthday treat. We were delighted with the luxurious lounge which was a lovely place to have an aperitif and study the menu, and to relax with a coffee and liqueur later. We had the set tasting menu which was delicious; the Cornish Turbot and the Goosnargh chicken were particularly...

In November 2016 we hired the whole Gilpin Lake House for our small perfect family wedding. Every aspect was amazing. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the food was second to none. The rooms were very spacious and homely catering for all of our needs. I would recommend the Gilpin Lake House as a wedding venue or luxury...

We visited the Gilpin Spice restaurant in January 2017 as a group of 4 friends in an evening. The man greeting us at the door came across as a little surly and wasn't very welcoming but once over that hurdle everything improved. Table service was excellent and the help in ordering options from the waiting staff due to the tapas...

After an absence of 4 years we decided to make a 7th visit to Gilpin Lodge. The food was fabulous and Gilpin Spice is a joy to behold but above all it is the service that sets is apart from everywhere else. Had to be dragged kicking and screaming from our garden suite past the fabulous spa lodges to the...

This was our second visit to Gilpin and we took some elderly relatives to enjoy a three day winter break in the Lakes. Gilpin doesn't disappoint as it is a fabulous place to while away the hours enjoying the great food and drink they have on offer in comfortable surroundings. All the fires are lit, the staff are there to...

The hotel, not the lakeside or the lodges was ok, there aren't any facilities actually at the hotel and every single thing including the morning paper is an extra, which when you are paying £330 a night room only i would of expected to be included. We have stayed in beautiful hotels all over England and the world and value...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of Gilpin is a very passionate family and team, dedicated to creating lasting memories for their guests, who return time and again for celebrations and escapes. Warmth and friendliness are balanced with extraordinary service, exquisite décor and stunning culinary experiences. This five star hotel comprises two separate estates in the beautiful Lake District, with a luxury country house on each. At Gilpin Hotel all of the 25 bedrooms have lovely Lakeland views, most leading directly onto the gardens - including six Garden Suites with their own cedarwood hot tubs, and five fabulous detached Spa Lodges. The Spa Lodges were added in 2016, and are cedar-clad with king size beds, gorgeous bathrooms and a fabulously private en-suite spa each, with a convertible treatment area, steam room, rain maker shower, free standing oval stone bath, outdoor sauna and hydrotherapy hot tub surrounded by a walled garden. Add this to the mood lighting, fires, electric blinds and a state-of-the-art music system, and all of the senses are invigorated. Just a mile away at Gilpin Lake House, six gorgeous rooms share a fully staffed boutique hotel with a heated indoor swimming pool (for Lake House guests only), outdoor hot tubs and saunas, and exclusive access to 100 acres of grounds with a stunningly beautiful private lake. Our chauffeurs bring you to the hotel in the evening to dine. Dine in either the Michelin starred main restaurant, 'Hrishi', where Hrishikesh Desai combines great Lake District produce and classic methods to deliver unbelievable textures and flavours with just a twist of Asia, or in 'Gilpin Spice' a new informal restaurant transcending international boundaries, with an open kitchen focussing on dishes from the spice trail spanning the Indian sub-continent, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Japan and China. ... more   less
