“Silver wedding anniversary stay”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Stayed for 3 nights earlier this week. Beautiful Hotel very well looked after and maintained by the owners. Individual bedrooms. We dined in the restaurant each night and the standard was very high, everything was well presented. My only complaint was the lack of choice for dessert, although what we had was lovely. Breakfast was excellent too. We celebrated our Silver Wedding anniversary on the 2nd evening and found the table specially decorated and a card too which was thoughtful. Waitress staff were very polite and courteous.

Room Tip: Room 7 had an amazing bathroom, which is why we chose it, however it only has a double bed which we...

Thank you for choosing Applegarth as the place to stay on such a special occasion as your silver wedding. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. You are correct that room 7 does have a standard double bed. Most people fall for that particular room because of its beautiful bathroom with circular spa bath in the bay window. If your looking for a big bed we can go up to 8ft wide so hopefully we can tempt you into another room next time. Once again, congratulations on your silver wedding anniversary

We recently stayed at the Applegarth for 9 nights, so we got to know the place quite well! We were so impressed and our expectations were blown away. The Applegarth is a lovely hotel; they’ve managed perfectly blend the warm welcoming feeling you want when you escape to the country with all the mod cons you’d find in a big fancy hotel in London.

We stayed in Room 1, a suite. It is decorated beautifully, with a huge bathroom with separate shower and jacuzzi tub for two. The room itself is very spacious, with big windows letting in loads of light. The concertina doors open to a small balcony, overlooking the rooftops to the hills beyond. But as the doors open fully, you can just as easily lounge on the sofa and feel as if you’re outside. It’s lovely.

We enjoyed many dinners at the Applegarth, all of which we found to be great quality. My husband enjoyed the breakfast everyday. The service was impeccable.

There is ample parking for everyone in a big, easy to maneuver car park; very nice in a small village!

The Applegarth is modern without being cold and inviting without being intrusive. It is a perfect blend making it an idea getaway for all ages. While we were there a young couple celebrated their engagement and the next night a man celebrated his 80th birthday. Both couples seemed to have a great time and feel comfortable. My husband and I are somewhere in the middle of that and we obviously enjoyed it as well!

I really recommend the Applegarth. Thank you to Suzanne, Alan and family for a lovely time. We hope to visit again soon!

Room Tip: Room 1 is large and spacious. It is down a flight of stairs, but looks out on a garden yet another f...

Spent two nights at Applegarth at the end of March (Room 16). The room was excellent, the food was superb and the service (in restaurant, bar and at reception) was faultless. Couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome. They even helped put me in touch with their wine supplier. Great weekend!

My husband & I went for a 2 night break to Applegarth. It is a beautiful hotel the decor is lovely and the rooms tastefully done.
The staff are very helpful and friendly and its obvious they all care about their guests.
Breakfast was lovely and the evening meals were great.
Parking was great too ( this can be a problem in the lakes) and the hotel is situated right in the heart of windermere so a stroll after dinner is a pleasant thing to do.
Applegarth is a perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy the beauty of the Lake District.

Thank you for your comment that Applegarth is the "perfect place to get away from it all" and for mentioning how fortunate we are to have such a large floodlit carpark in central Windermere with more than enough parking for all of our Guests. When you need to get away from it all you know where we are!

We had a great room with a fantastic view & the decor was really tasteful, with modern bathrooms. The staff couldn't do enough for you, we were treated like family by Kevin & Michelle who were also very professional. Breakfast & dinner were great, lots of choices and very good service. The bar and lounge area had a very relaxing atmosphere and prices were very reasonable. This family run business had olde word charm with a touch of modern class about it. Centrally located in Windermere and close to all forms of transport but no traffic noise. Would recommend to anyone as they cater for all age groups with different styles of rooms (some are very interesting!). Very friendly & welcoming!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the mountains.

I stayed here in the beautiful Lake District for 4 nights and found it to be outstanding in every way. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was large and extremely comfortable - even the bathroom was impressive. The view from our window over the mountains was stunning. The food was so good we ended up eating here every night. There was plenty of choice for breakfast and it was very well cooked. Thank you Applegarth!

We recently visited for a 2 night stay in Room 17

Let me start by getting rid of the negatives.....eh none...........that was easy!

Right now the positives

Beautiful hotel

Welcoming and friendly owners

The staff all appear to have the same ethos as the owners. To make you feel welcome, help you relax into your surrounding and generally provide excellent service.

The rooms, if 17 was anything to go by, are just superb. Modern, clean with great facilities such as spa bath and rainfall shower.

The food served in the restaurant was good and honest hearty fare, cooked the way YOU like it if you just ask. They were only too willing to change the side dishes etc. to suit your needs.

Breakfast is a repeat experience of dinner with a range of courses on offer and again changes can be made. A walk was required after breakfast as it really did set you up for the day....

All in all we had a great time and would thoroughly recommend this establishment. We will be back.

Room Tip: If you slight mobility issues then the rainfall shower in room 17 is over the bath and you to climb...
