I have stayed at Hillthwaite House Hotel most years since 1995 and it has never failed to impress. The hotel is comfortable, with a variety of rooms and prices. There are splendid views from the dining room and from some hotel rooms, as well as an extensive terrace overlooking Lake Windermere. The food served at breakfast and at dinner has been consistently superb, with knowledgeable chefs serving excellent and fresh local produce. The staff are friendly and welcoming. I was delighted on my most recent visit to see Geoff, once the manager of the dining room, returned from retirement to join the reception team.
Hillthwaite is traditional and stylish, not ideal for families with young children, but truly a wonderful place to stay.More
