“Lovely stay”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

I spent two nights at the hotel on a business trip and used the conference facilities. The room was fine: I stayed in the annexe part of the hotel at the back. The room was modern, bathroom was good, noises did come through from the adjoining rooms ... television, snoring, someone emptying their clothes from the wardrobe at 6 in the morning!
The food was good, excellent choice at breakfast, generous portions at dinner. The setting is phenomenal, but the road at the front between the hotel and the lake is quite busy.

The location of this hotel is beautiful. We stayed in early March, I had booked just the house double room for my partners birthday due to the prices, however when we got there due to have available rooms we were offered an upgrade to a lake view room for just £35. The room was stunning, a four poster bed, jacuzzi bath and a view to die for. What fantastic service. Everywhere clean and everyone friendly. Could not have asked for more.

We stayed at low wood bay for three nights. The room was very basic and quite small but clean and had everything we needed. The dining room and lounges are lovely and the food and drink was lovely and reasonably priced. The spa pool was lovely but smaller than appears on the pictures, the hot tub sauna and steam were a little dated and dirty looking. Overall it was an ok stay but not at nice as we expected. The view is amazing though!

Dear Guest, thank you so much for your review about our hotel. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed our dining facilities and lounge bar area. I am sorry to hear that you found your room to be basic and quite small. Some of our rooms are smaller, depending on what room type you had reserved. The majority of our classic rooms and feature rooms are bigger than our standard house rooms for example. When making a reservation please speak to one of our reservations team and I am sure we can find a room that will meet your requirements.

I will pass your comments with regards to our leisure facilities onto the club manager. Once again thank you for your comments and I do hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to The Low Wood Bay in the near future. Kind Regards, James Wilkinson

My husband and i have just returned from a 3 day break at this hotel, and would recommend it, from the location and scenery, to the hotel facilities and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff in all areas. We had a truly unforgettable 3 days.

Room Tip: Definitely front of hotel, views are incredible

After putting a review on here about the Low Wood Bay not allowing us a refund or change of date for our stay.
I would just like to put the story straight,It was a booking service I spoke to and NOT the hotel directly, So After speaking to the general manager Nevil Jeffery. He was nothing but professional and sorted our stay at his wonderful hotel.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his help and wish him and his hotel all the very best in the future.
Patrick.

We visited the hotel as my hubby was talking at a conference being held there. We have stayed in and around the area but were pleasantly surprised by this lovely hotel. We stayed two nights and the staff were very welcoming. The restaurant is fab and the food is out of this world-congrats to the chef and the team! The lounge is very nice (except for the guests who watched footie loudly on an I pad totally inconsiderate of other guests!!!).
The leisure facilities are brilliant-good pool and steam and sauna PLUS an outdoor hot tub which was lovely to relax in after a busy day. We will definitely return to the hotel and are so please to have discovered it. Thanks to all the staff for their help and attention to detail.

Room Tip: We believe the lakeside views are the better rooms and we would like to try one on our next visit. O...

we booked in for 2 nights for my daughters half term. excellent food, kid friendly hotel with enough things to occupy the kids . our room felt a bit crowded but as it was facing the lake so it was a compensation. wi-fi was a bit of an issue but i assume it is best to keep away from gadgets on ho;iday. would recommend having both breakfast and dinner at the hotel.
