We checked in at 3pm to be told that we could only eat in the restaurant at either 6.30pm or 8.30pm. When you are a guest in the hotel you should be able to eat at your convenience. The classic room was right at the top of the hotel and was very very tired looking, no fan ( as there...

The hotel has amazing views, it is clean and all of the public areas of decorated to a high standard. I love the checked, tartan and striped modern theme. The staff are helpful and friendly. The hotel is trying very hard to create food of a high standard, the breakfast was amazing and in my opinion better than dinner. Some...

From arriving, everything was first class. Lovely views of the fells from the elevated position above Bowness. We chose a room with a jacuzzi because we are having to re-do our bathroom and what could be better than getting first hand experience of one before we buy. There were other ideas too that we picked up. I do suggest studying...

My partner and I stayed at the Hillthwaite for a night when we visited Windermere. We were thrilled with our stay and couldn't fault anything at all.

My partner and I returned yesterday from this lovely hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay. We had booked through Secret Escapes and were pleased to be greeted with Prosecco and wine on arrival, although no canapés as promised. I'm giving this a four star review as the experience for us both was perfect except for lots of small...
