Was a late booking and at a very decent price. The main part of the building is exceptionally well fitted out and has a very comfortable feel to it. The room we were in was spacious and had the most comfortable bed. My only comment would be that if you are at all infirm, then please inform the staff before...

Me and my sister came to Holbeck Ghyll for the "champagne afternoon tea". The service was very professional, and they made sure that everything was ok throughout our whole experience. The sandwiches were very nice, and also the cakes. My sister enjoyed the food, however I felt that the cakes were abit too random and rich, so that let it...

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a romantic and relaxing afternoon tea at Holbeck Ghyll. The staff made us feel very welcome and our waiter was professional but very friendly. The ambience was calm and relaxed which benefited from the excellent selection of soft background classical music. The view over Windermere is unrivalled and we were lucky enough to be given...

Hi I feel the reviewer is confusing his 3 experiences, we do not have a michelin star, we do not serve robertsons jam, our sandwiches are never dry, please remove as we cannot mention Michellin anywhere and the review is totally inaccurate

My husband booked a night here as part of my 50th birthday celebrations. The hotel is in stunning location and I was really looking forward to our stay. Initial impressions are very positive - the hotel is beautifully constructed with masses of Oak Panelling and lovely log fires in the communal areas. Our room was 'pet friendly' so not expecting...

I read mixed reviews of this hotel before I booked to stay there with my friend and was a little concerned. However, my concerns were allayed as soon as we arrived. Our room was absolutely lovely (Room 1 - Junior Suite in the main building) with the sweetest little balcony overlooking the lake (see pic of front of hotel -...

What a wonderful weekend we have just enjoyed at the Holbeck Ghyll. Despite reading some earlier reviews on TA I can assure all, that any visit would be a great experience. The food is wonderful. The views (once the mist cleared) were exceptional and the service was professional yet personal. The wines are wondrous and the Cheese Chariot is to...

Our room was called cosy and that was a good description. Everything was as you would wish. This was our second visit with a groupon voucher which made it very good value. The grounds are delightful and the view is great. The food is excellent and they cater very well for coeliac (gluten free) so would recommend with no hesitation.

Holbeck Ghyll is a bit of a strange mix- likeable, quirky, some bits great and some not so however we like it so paid another visit at February half-term when child free ! The hotel itself is up a steep hill, 4x4 required if frosty or snowy although the road had a few nasty potholes when we visited. Stylistically its...

I stayed a night here with my boyfriend for valentines and it is definitely one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. The decor is absolutely beautiful, the staff are extremely attentive and the view is phenomenal. The hot tub has a great view of the lake also. Would definitely come back!!!
