Fantastic room with a lovely lake view. Great food. Both evening meal and breakfast were really good. All staff were friendly and helpful. In the restaurant they were attentive without been obtrusive.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the lake are fantastic. These are next to the road but that wasn't a proble...

We stayed here for 2 nights over the easter weekend. Our deal included a 3 course meal on the first night, this was so nice we ate there again on the second night, highly recommend the food (although quite pricey)
Our Room was No.53 in the main building, nice rooms with large bathroom, very powerful shower, toiletries, the only let down about our room was that our double bed seemed tiny. Most hotels nowdays offer king or queen sized beds like we have at home so it was a little strange being in a small bed. Our view looked out onto nothing just the roof of the other buildings. Breakfast was also delicious so much choice & self service.
Overall we would definitely stay here again, lovely hotel with very friendly staff.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the stairs as they are quite creaky

Dear TinkerBell26, thank you so much for your wonderful review about our hotel. It was great to read that you enjoyed your 2 night stay with dinner included on the first night. It is even more pleasing to hear that you enjoyed your dinner with us on the first night you chose to dine with us on your second. I am pleased that you enjoyed most aspects of your stay but you felt a little disappointed on the size of the bed in the room you were allocated. The room you were allocated was a standard double room, we do have larger beds available in upgraded rooms. Once again thank you for your comments these will get passed on to our management team and directors. I do hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to The Low Wood Bay in the near future. Kind Regards, James Wilkinson

Stayed for boyfrien'ds 30th and before we arrived I asked if we could have a balloon in the room on arrival. We were greeted with 2 balloons and a card from the team at Low Wood Bay! Another gorgeous stay! Thank you.

This hotel is in a perfect position, nice walk to get the boat over to Windermere. Food is outstanding and one of the main reasons for our continuous returns. Staff are amazing and go out of their way. Bedrooms are dated and do not match quality of hotel, walls are paper thin and did not sleep due to noise but beds and duvets are extremely comfortable. Leisure facilities are great. Would recommend.
