I've just returned from a wonderful relaxing weekend break at Hillwaite. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and our room was stunning, we had a beautiful view of Windermere town and the lake in the distance. The food was amazing both evenings, the cocktails were to die for and the staff and service were excellent. I'd certainly recommend Hillthwaite Hotel and...

Just Spent a delightful weekend at the Hillthwaite Hotel. Stunning views await you in the dining room over a fabulous Cumbrian breakfast. Our room was spacious and also afforded a gorgeous view of the lake. The staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely return for another stay.

Lovely position up a hill with good views but close to Windermere centre for shops etc. Nice and modern internally. Attended for family wedding, did not stay. Standard room of parent seemed satisfactory and size was ok. Service was good. Food was good. Would recommend and return.

Enjoyed our recent stay. Lovely room, fantastic views, staff so friendly. Food was amazing - everything top notch. Will be back! Room was stunning too. Excellent value for money! Not far from train station and central attractions either.

We had a 4 night stay in occasion room 15 as a birthday treat. It is one of the top range rooms, therefore more expensive, but definitely worth it. It was exactly as the pictures show. It overlooked lake Windermere and the snow capped mountains. The room itself was large, with good furniture and a lovely comfortable 6 foot bed...

Great hotel for short or longer breaks. Food, & location very good. Swimming pool on site, views are second to none with spectacular views over Windermere. The level of service received from the staff exceptional. As the name suggests "Hillthwaite " the hotel is located up a steep hill if your walking is poor then a taxi is probably the...

I've had a notion to visit the Lake District for a while and when the Hillthwaite popped up on Secret Escapes, I decided to give it a visit. This was a weekend away as a birthday treat after my wife agreed the hotel looked very nice. She even paid for two nights and I thought what the heck and paid...
