Unfortunately The Low Wood is undergoing significant building work at the moment and the gym and spa are out of use. We stayed for x2 nights and chose this hotel for the great facilities seen on the website... alas, we didn't get to use any of them! Looks like it'll be going on for many more months to come. Building...

Lovely hotel, lake views from some of the rooms- but there is a busy main road in front of the hotel between the building and the lake... The whole complex has some massive building works at the moment- no spa or pool, so be wary if booing in the next couple of months,

Had a family wedding at Low Wood Bay and the venue was excellent. It is obviously a really picturesque location, but the real winner of the weekend were the staff. Extremely helpful and nothing was a problem. Highly recommended

The hotel is undergoing refurbishment however this didn't detract from our enjoyment. The bedrooms have been renovated & are luxuriously appointed. The restaurant and lounge bar are equally attractive. There are works taking place to the rear of the hotel which you will see when entering the car park. Once inside the hotel it's a different world and the refurbishment...

STOP! If you are considering staying here don't for at least 12 months. I've just returned from the most disappointing weekend hotel accommodation I think I have ever been on.

We went to an evening reception at the Low Wood Bay yesterday evening. The hotel is very different to that we went to some 20 years ago - very clean and modern, with pale wood, paint and carpets . Amazing views of the Lake and pier made super photos! Food was pulled pork, mini burgers and fish and chips. Pulled...
