Holbeck Ghyll Country House is an enchanting property with a panoramic view. Their hospitality and service is remarkable/incredible. We would recommend and friends for visiting this property as and when they are visiting Prague. I would also like to visit again as and when the opportunity is available.

What a fantastic mini break. We only stayed for one night but what a thoroughly enjoyable experience which started the moment we arrived. We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival and this continued throughout our short time here. The room was very clean with a four poster bed and plentiful amenities. The views over Lake Windermere are superb... More

I am mystified that this hotel has had some bad reviews. We had a wonderful stay from the moment of arrival. We were in Room 20, up in the Tower with a fabulous view over the lake. Good news - no neighbours! Within five minutes of arrival we saw a nuthatch and great spotted woodpecker on the feeders outside. I... More

Very comfortable, stylish hotel, a beautiful property with stunning views of Lake Windermere. Gourmet restaurant including a Tasting Menu if you wish. Great place to unwind. Lovely breakfast in the Dining Room overlooking the lake. There is no requirement to eat in the Dining room in the evening but wise to book if you do as it very popular and... More

A country house hotel with beautiful views of Lake Windermere and the mountains behind. Our room was an attractive annex called ' Langdale ' which was spacious and very comfortable. The reception staff were pleasant and a box of chocs waiting in our accomodation for my birthday set the tone for the week-end. Breakfast very good and the 'Taster '... More

The Holbeck Ghyll unfortunately is trying to live on its reputation of 5 years ago. Since then it has lost its Michelin star but not its prices!. It's the small things that we noticed ...FIrstly we booked into a superior room only to be given a classic and to be told it was superior. Didn't wash as we had stayed... More

Room decor very dated. Spa facilities small, not very private (lounge area was basically reception area). Cocktails expensive but poorly presented. Not very contemporary and appears to be aimed at older clientele which is misrepresented on website.

Set in a quiet delightful hillside setting over looking Lake Windermere. The property is a group of converted former outbuildings and annexes clustered around the main house. We had our dog so stayed in one of the annex rooms a short distance from the main house. Not good when raining as you get soaked just going to dinner! The main... More
