Both my wife and I after years of staying at the Hillthwaite decided to treat our son and daughter and their respective spouses to a weekend away. The reasons why the Hillthwaite draws us back year after year is simple, great food, a relaxed ambience, the friendly outstanding staff ( special mention to Marco as it's always a pleasure to...

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in mid-august. Having booked a cosy double I was prepared for a small room however the standard of decoration in comparison to the public areas fell short of expectations. The room was clean, well maintained and a decent size, but was in desperate need of updating to match the rest of the...

What a great start to my (early) retirement! We discovered this lovely hotel on Secret Escapes so a great deal financially!

A lovely couple of nights stay for my husband's 40th birthday. This was our 3rd visit. Room 28 was very comfortable with an immaculately decorated bathroom. The food was lovely ( especially the mushroom soup which was the loveliest soup we'd ever had! ) We thought the refurbishments were beautifully done in the bar, restaurant and reception. We are looking...

Stayed with my recently married wife for our 'minimoon' for three nights. The Mrs wanted to take the dog with us on holiday for the first time too and see the delights of The Lakes. Loved our trip but disappointed in the hotel. The hotel's good points for us were; location. Great location for access to Bowness and Windermere. Didn't...

Arrived a little early at the hotel but was given a lovely welcome & luckily our suite was ready. The only thing I found that would help you find the hotel would be a sign somewhere near the steep turn as I did miss it. We had a suite in the building attached to the main hotel & it was...
