“Brilliant weekend”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at the Applegarth Villa. Lovely room and fabulous restaurant. Staff are quietly attentive and unassuming. All food is locally sourced and you can really taste the difference! Congratulations must go to the chef for fabulous food elegantly presented. We got a brilliant on line deal which made it all the better! Many thanks

We stayed here for a few days for our honeymoon, the room was excellent,the restaurant was excellent and the staff were attentive and friendly. They use locally sourced meat and produce and support local breweries in their bar. They have (had) a nice arrangement with the Macdonald hotel in bowness on windermere for the leisure facilities and i we would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: All rooms are totally different to each other, but all of the highest quality

Just returned from a lovely few days stay with my Wife at the Applegarth Villa Hotel in Windermere, now our third visit. As always the rooms are beautifully furnished, comfortable, very clean and warm. This time we stayed in Room 19 which has a luxury relaxing spa bath. Food in the restaurant is excellent with some nice touches like home made chocolate petit fours. We have always been made very welcome at the Applegarth and look forward to our next stay.

Me and my husband were so excited for our stay at the applegarth villa but when being welcomed into our room we were soon to be disappointed!!! My husband had booked the new suite as a special treat for us however when being left to our room we found some problems.... The balcony door wouldn't shut properly so on a cold wet day the draft was awful, the electric fire was broken, the heating wasn't working, we decided to pick a film on the interactive tv but they were not connected to the internet so it may aswell have been just a normal tv, and the remote for the bathroom tv had been lost so you could only watch one channel when sat in the bath!!! After complaining about the fire the man in charge did try but couldn't do it so told us the owner was on his way...... He turned up 5 hours later!!! After we had sat and waited for him all afternoon! All this ruined our stay and I can safely say for the price of the room we were disgusted and will not be returning!!!!

Thank you for taking the time to write your review which we find somewhat disappointing. To begin the glass balcony wall fits prefectly. It is bi-folding therefore requires to be closed the same way you open it, that being each glass panel locked into place across the wall.
The fire and underfloor heating work independently of each other and are regulated to a comfortable room temperature. If you prefer the room to be warmer just raise the temperature control.
The interactive TV with sound system has its own dedicated internet connection enabling you to enjoy full internet access including catchup TV and Iplayer. If you subscribe to netflix or any other movie provider you can log in using your own access details. The bathroom TV is touch screen, not remote controlled.We have provided written information on the technology for the room in both the lounge area and the bathroom and if you need any further help Reception will be only to happy to advise

Have just returned from a mid week break at the Applegarth Villa. It was a treat, booked by my husband, as part of my 40th birthday celebrations! It was totally fantastic and an excellent choice. We stayed in room 16 with was beautifully furnished. The staff were incredible and nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious too. We will most definitely return again...Thank You.

What a delightful hotel to stay at! Just returned from a one night stay at Applegarth VIlla. The hotel was recommended to us by daughter and son in law. We were not disappointed. We were made to feel most welcome and our room number 4 was spacious and spotless. Dinner was excellent and served in a very friendly relaxing manner. The hotel is very tastefully furnished ,perfectly in keeping with the history of the house. We shall be returning with friends very soon. Well done to the owners of this hidden gem.

Absolutely thrilled to have found Applegarth! It is 5 star luxury!..... from the lovely reception room.. to the fixtures and fittings ...to the food and hospitality and all within walking distance to the town perfect! We stayed with friends in rooms 16 and 19. They were beautiful. Sumptuous attention to detail from built in tv in the bathroom .. jacuzzi bath with lights!! to thick fluffy towels ....and the rooms so warm in a cold November. First class food in beautiful setting. Thanks to Kevin who was a great host with good local knowledge and Helena our lovely waitress. Thank you all so much we will return with reinforcements!!
