Room beautifully furnished with a lovely view towards the lake ( although you cannot see the lake ) ! All meals excellent, best breakfast I have had in a long time although you get spoiled for choice. On my...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 January 2017 via mobile

AMAZING HOTEL/ BEDROOMS - I have just returned from the most wonderful weekend away as I wanted to treat my husband to a totally relaxing weekend away from everything. It totally exceeded all my expectations and as all my family say I am extremely fussy - well done Applegarth Villa. From the outset I can only commend them - I...

We were due to stay at AV over the New Year but due to new work commitments were unable to visit. We had paid a substantial deposit which Kevin was happy to allow us to use towards another visit, great news! We decided to book a little break in May and whilst we could have stayed in the hotel and...

Praise indeed for our restaurant coming from a Chef such as yourself! Pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay in the new suites . At an over budget cost of 2.3 million it was a huge investment in what is actually only seven suites. Fortunately they have become overwhelmingly popular and exceeded our expectations on how they would be received...

We have just returned from an amazing stay at Applegarth and as always it's been lovely. I think the main reason we love this hotel so much is you get exactly what you are expecting. Every part of the hotel from foyer to bedrooms is beautifully presented and pristine clean. Always a warm friendly greeting on arrival, which sets the...

This hotel is on the expensive side but is worth every penny. It is well located, 2 minutes walk from Windermere city centre (which is quite small). Stayed 3 nights in a Villa Unit which was clean, modern, well appointed, quiet and comfortable. Had dinner in the restaurant (twice). The food was excellent. Breakfast was ordered off a menu which...

We had a lovely stay at the Applegarth and would highly recommend it. The staff and excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very comfortable with a wonderful view across the hills. The hotel retains all the fixtures and fittings from the original house and has been sensitively updated. There was a huge choice for breakfast, which...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review for Applegarth. We totally agree that Waitress service for breakfast is so much more pleasant than a buffet that has been standing around for ages and it was good to hear that you also enjoyed your dining experience. Thank you for your recommendation and we look forward to...

We stayed at Applegarth to celebrate a new job and straight away on arrival we knew it was going to be the perfect place for a special occasion. We booked one of the new hot tub suites and chose Broadcrag. It was one of the most luxurious and peaceful rooms we have ever experienced. The level of detail and consideration...

No point telling you the room was clean as that was all that was good. As a 5* hotel I expect someone to greet me as I arrive, ask if they can help with luggage, show you to your room and explain everything you need to know about it. Well not here you won't! No one in reception. Eventually greeted...

I feel that without exception the Owners and all the Staff are deeply saddened by such a scathing review. Although I was not on duty that afternoon I was in the office. I watched your arrival and it is true to say that there was no one actually stood directly behind our reception desk, both receptionists were but a stones...

Since our first visit we have been a few times a year and taken family, all have enjoyed it. Management and staff are very friendly, food is excellent and the suites are out of this world. The majority of the guest are regulars who like us visit a few times a year, this I think says it all.

Who would want to venture out on a cold winters evenings with everything you need in one magnificent building. Equally our summer terrace is the perfect outdoor space to dine in warmer weather whilst enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sunset over the distant fells from your hot tub. With plenty of secure on site parking this makes Applegarth the perfect choice for your stay in the lakes. To compliment this magnificent building, all our rooms are fully coordinated with fabrics and soft furnishings carefully chosen by our interior designer. Luxurious bathrooms, wall mounted flat screen TV's, free hi speed internet access,suites with hot tubs, refreshment tray, bottled Lakeland water and bathrobes all come as standard!
