A booked our one night stay for my wife's birthday, it ended up being a very difficult week for her so our night away was a really welcome escape! On arrival we were greeted by the concierge who assisted with our luggage and then parked the car, this was a nice touch and much appreciated. Our room Heathwaite was beautiful,...

Stayed here for a long weekend in February - absolutely superb. The staff were so warm and friendly. It's a 5 star hotel without the stuffiness. Our room was beautifully furnished and so comfortable. The hotel lounge was a treat for pre-dinner cocktails and canapes. Dinner was fabulous. We spent the days out walking and exploring the Lakes and the...

We visited Gilpin for a night in February and I had booked a Garden Suite for our stay....believe me pictures do it NO JUSTICE! It was incredible! The room was spotless and modern with some vintage touches. Our view was stunning with alpacas just on the other side of the fence who greeted us in the morning. The hot tub...

We stayed for my wifes birthday. Pushed the boat not just out, but effectively all the way across the lake....We went for a lodge. They are simply stunning. If you're not happy with one of these little pieces of heaven then there's something not right about you. We ate at the restaurant and it was, hands down, one of the...

We visited Gilpin in late January, just an overnight stay with dinner. After our initial booking I had been contacted by email on a couple of occasions by the hotel to check all was well – nice touch was that! It’s easy to find but forget your sat nav, just head for the golf course and there it is. On...

My fiancé and I stayed in one of the junior suites at the hotel midweek in February and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. From the moment we arrived the staff were incredibly welcoming and attentive, making sure we were...

Thank you to everyone at The Gilpin for making my partners 40th birthday stay amazing. We arrived to a very warm welcome and the three nights we stayed nothing was too much trouble. I booked the Magic Moments package and booked an extra night. I cannot recommend this enough, book it! Also just to note, the food is fabulous! We...

This is our second 'mini-moon' package at the Gilpin and it was as fabulous as ever. The staff are friendly and welcoming and they pay attention. We stayed in one of the Lodges and they are a delight - a real place of tranquility, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life; you can really relax here. The exclusive...

We spent the most delightful night here.On arrival in the pouring rain, our car was whisked away from us and we were warmly welcomed and taken to our garden suite, Dollywagon Pike. Spacious, very comfortable and fine views through the mist. Dinner was exceptional. Next morning, we were in the hot tub, drizzle and inquisitive heron notwithstanding. The hotel oozes...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of Gilpin is a very passionate family and team, dedicated to creating lasting memories for their guests, who return time and again for celebrations and escapes. Warmth and friendliness are balanced with extraordinary service, exquisite décor and stunning culinary experiences. This five star hotel comprises two separate estates in the beautiful Lake District, with a luxury country house on each. At Gilpin Hotel all of the 25 bedrooms have lovely Lakeland views, most leading directly onto the gardens - including six Garden Suites with their own cedarwood hot tubs, and five fabulous detached Spa Lodges. The Spa Lodges were added in 2016, and are cedar-clad with king size beds, gorgeous bathrooms and a fabulously private en-suite spa each, with a convertible treatment area, steam room, rain maker shower, free standing oval stone bath, outdoor sauna and hydrotherapy hot tub surrounded by a walled garden. Add this to the mood lighting, fires, electric blinds and a state-of-the-art music system, and all of the senses are invigorated. Just a mile away at Gilpin Lake House, six gorgeous rooms share a fully staffed boutique hotel with a heated indoor swimming pool (for Lake House guests only), outdoor hot tubs and saunas, and exclusive access to 100 acres of grounds with a stunningly beautiful private lake. Our chauffeurs bring you to the hotel in the evening to dine. Dine in either the Michelin starred main restaurant, 'Hrishi', where Hrishikesh Desai combines great Lake District produce and classic methods to deliver unbelievable textures and flavours with just a twist of Asia, or in 'Gilpin Spice' a new informal restaurant transcending international boundaries, with an open kitchen focussing on dishes from the spice trail spanning the Indian sub-continent, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Japan and China. ... more   less
