“A very relaxed peacefully experience a must if staying in Windermere.”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

My partner and I enjoyed a relaxing stay here. The service was excellent, the staff were lovely, the food was absolutely beautiful. Thoroughly enjoyed our chilled out break we stayed in room 7 it was smaller than expected but the bathroom was beautiful. We enjoyed drinks in the bar area which was such a relaxed atmosphere. Dinner was £25 each for 3 courses followed by tea or coffee and was very tasty
The breakfast was beautiful also

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed our bar and restaurant and really relaxed during your stay with us. I'm sure you will agree that it does make a difference having these onsite instead of having to venture out on a cold and blustery night!

We recently stayed at Applegarth and were very impressed by the standard of accommodation ( definitely 5 *) and the food in the restaurant. On arrival we received a warm welcome and were pleased to be upgraded. Whilst the hotel and restaurant were quiet (end January) there was always someone around to answer questions . Highly recommended .

We are delighted by your kind review especially as at the time of your visit we were in the process of decorating the bar and lounge areas. Thank you for your patience and hopefully we may see you again when the new bar, dining room and lounge are complete

The room and bathrooms are good. The welcome and service poor. The food ok but lacking in finesse .

The canapés are a joke, why bother with a bit of cheese with pickle on the top ? Would we return ?

I think not, shame because it could be wonderful

Thank you for acknowledging the high quality of our bathrooms and bedrooms. The rest of your review is unfortunately rather vague. We are sorry that the food served in our restaurant is not to your taste but if Head Chef had served "cheese with pickle" as part of his canape selection then it would have been an individual tasting cheese with a home made speciality chutney!

We stayed here for 2 nights in november for my partners 30th. We stayed in room 17 which is absolutly gorgeous and just what we needed to relax as thats all i wanted to do being 8month pregnant. The food is gorgeous and plenty to choose from. The staff are warm and friendly and its a lovely welcoming hotel. Cant wait to return as soon as we get chance. Book through the hotels own website, they do great deals and you can look through the rooms as each one is different.

We stayed at the Applegarth for my boyfriends 30th birthday. I booked it after reading the reviews on trip advisor. We stayed in room 7. The bathroom is amazing the only criticism is that it seems as though the toilet has a self flushing mode, as during the night we could hear running water from the toilet, the next night we made sure the bathroom door was shut properly. The lighting in the room was perfectly we felt warm and cosy. The attention to detail is of a very high standard. The whole hotel was immaculately clean. We ate breakfast and dinner in the hotel, there was a good selection to choose from and everything was cooked to perfection. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. We would definitely return and recommend it to everybody.

Such a relaxing stay here - the 'Ultimate Luxury' room was exactly that! The jet spa bath was amazing, complete with headrests and tv! The food was also delicious, with a good selection of meals in the evening and a lovely full English breakfast in the morning. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to relax as soon as they walk through the door!

The last sentence of your review hopefully sums up exactly what Applegarth sets out to achieve, a luxurious place to relax from the moment you walk through the door with great food and a well stocked bar set in the heart of Windermere village. When you need a break from your busy lives you know where we are and we look forward to seeing you again.

we booked the ultimate luxury room one for a 30th birthday celebration and an engagement. the attention to detail was perfect - champagne in the room along with a personal card. everyone was so friendly and the atmosphere was relaxing and welcoming. we dined both nights and the food was beautifully presented and all the flavours complimented each other. nothing was too much trouble and we could not fault anything. the room was clean and luxurious with such soft towels and sheets. if we could've moved in we would have but its only fair that other people get to enjoy such a perfect hotel. i would certainly recommend staying here and we look forward to re-visiting in the future.

Room Tip: room one also has a small terrace which is pefect
