“A wonderful haven in a very busy world.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

My husband and I spent 3nights at Applegarth Villa. Booked last minute but so pleased to have found this gem. Everything about our stay was first class, from the service, the room and the food. After a day of walking it was so lovely to return to a soak in the luxurious bathroom. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We will certainly be recommending this hotel to our friends and family. Thank to everyone at Applegarth for a wonderful short break.

We have stayed twice at Applegarth. This second time was for a wedding anniversary. We chose to return because of the high quality service and friendly staff (as well as the stylish and individual rooms). Nothing was too much trouble for the staff; they changed the menu for me on several occasions, provided beautiful flowers on the night of the anniversary, made special cocktails and made us feel welcome and at home on both occasions. The first time we stayed we had a downstairs room (with no view but this was exactly as it said in the room description on their excellent web site - which is worth a look even if you don't book a room). The second time we had a room on the top floor with outstanding views in two directions. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. The excellent service was relaxed (so don't expect fast food). All in all we had two very memorable holidays, made extra special by staying at Applegarth

Room Tip: I liked the décor in room 19 and the views from room 9

It is a pleasure to welcome you both back to Applegarth as you always seem to find something brilliant to do in the area that we have never heard of! I think it is becoming a bit of a challenge. Hope to see you soon.

We booked Applegarth last minute, as we usually stay at The Old England in Bowness. I am so pleased we did! I would recommend this place to everyone. Alan and Suzanne were very friendly hosts and the atmosphere is very welcoming. The rooms are luxurious and modern and the bathroom in our superior double room was huge, had lovely toiletries, and had a fantastic shower. We had good wine on the terrace in the sun and a wonderful meal in the evening. Breakfast was included and was beautifully presented with good quality chunky wholemeal toast...always important!! Do try Applegarth Villas, you will not be disappointed!! This is my new bolt hole in the lakes!!

I booked a room at Applegarth Villa for a two night stay as a surprise for my partner's 30th birthday. The building is beautiful and the rooms are luxurious but, maybe I've been spoilt, but I don't think the rooms are worth the money we paid. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a 'steam room' and jacuzzi bath big enough for two. The room we stayed in did not have a view but it did have a terrace which was lovely in the evening sunshine. It was small touches which let me down. I maybe wrongly, presumed there would be robes in the rooms which there was not. I also emailed the hotel about a month before our stay to try and arrange something special for our arrival as it was for my partner's 30th birthday but received no response.
We ate in the restaurant on one of the evenings of our stay, the food was OK and reasonably priced but the restaurant was very empty which made me very feel very uncomfortable, through no fault of the staff. We had breakfast on both days which was made to order meaning we did have to wait a while for our food. I had to wait quite a while to check out as the owner was talking to another guest.

Room Tip: A luxury hotel but not value for money in my opinion.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are disappointed that in your opinion Applegarth was not value for money. We are not sure what you base your comparison on as your ultimate luxury Suite with all it has to offer in the heart of the lake district is quite unique.
Although you feel small touches were missing we wish you had clarified what you expected as we strive to constantly improve the service we offer and constructive feed back is very important to us. Quality toiletries, bottled water, robes and slippers (yours were in the wardrobe) come as standard in all our rooms with fresh fruit in the Ultimate luxury rooms.Although it is over four month between your stay and writing your review, I have been able to look back at the restaurant diary and can see that the evening you dined we were over 3/4 full although you did eat quite early so maybe all our diners had not arrived making the restaurant feel quieter than it actually was. Applegarth does try very hard to create a relaxed and comfortable environment and are sorry we were unable to do so for you during your stay

We had a short stay BB & evening meal. Food and accommodation were excellent. The location was ideal (and surprisingly very quiet!) within walking distance to local shops, public transport services and Lake Windermere at Bowness. We had room with small private terrace which caught the sun beautifully in the afternoon.
Applegarth Villa most certainly lived up to our expectations in terms of luxury and relaxation. Access to the Spa facilities at Bowness was an additional bonus. Thank you to Alan, Suzanne and staff for making our stay so memorable. We would highly recommend AV to anyone looking for somewhere special to stay.

Breakfast was included in our stay and was served with a smile!which is quite unusual these days.All round a worthy 5 star hotel
