Just got back from a one night stay here. Lovely man on reception checked us in and my first thoughts were how cosy the place looked, especially with the log fire and christmas decorations. We had room 2 which was nice for what we paid (£148) with 19th century country-esque decor. Loved the touch of the complimentary damson gin. Just...

This lovely hotel has exceptional views over Windermere, we were greeted by a very friendly staff after booking for afternoon tea. Although the pot of tea was good we were disappointed with the glass teapot,glass teapot sugar bowl glass cups with wooden saucers a little too modern for the surroundings. The sandwiches had been kept in the fridge and bread...

We were gifted a lovely treat, afternoon tea at Holbeck Ghyll Country House and it really was ok. The location is wonderful with the amazing views from the main areas i.e.small dining room, lovely lounge and main dining room. The open fires were most welcoming, the staff were friendly and efficient.

We stayed in the Potter Suite and feound it to be a very tired room in need of updating. The worst suite we have ever stayed in certainly not luxury. No wifi in hotel except in reception. Very unprofessional staff often behaved like kids. Food was pleasant except the menu was the same every night. The lounge felt like an...

We spent a very special night at Holbeck Ghyll recently.We found ourselves in the Potter Suite following in the footsteps of David Hasselhoff, Lionel Ritchie and Renee Zellweger. It was excellent. We were dancing on the ceiling, reliving Baywatch in the hot tub and all this will go in the Diary. The suite itself is self-contained, comfortable and very well...

The Michelin starred restaurant has excellent food. Presentation gets 10/10 and good variety on the menu which did not change on our two night stay.

Dining experience was excellent - Setting, staff and food could not be faulted. We had the taster menu and breakfast. Highly recommended. Spa experience was pleasant. - Treatments on offer and staff in Spa were nice, however I wouldn’t class the area as a ‘Spa’ as it only consisted of a small steam room and sauna suitable for 2 people...
