Twix and tween 3 days. Everything 100%+ again - friendliness and professionalism of all staff, food second to none, spotlessly clean in all areas, relaxing pool and spa facilities - all make for a brilliant few days at a time when a bit of pampering is so welcome. See you next year if not before.

Possibly due to the excellent wine, but I think an incredibly comfy bed helped! Can't fault the staff or the food - amazing views and a lovely room. No nice in fact, I'm buying some vouchers as a christmas gift!

The hotel is in a great location between Bowness and Windermere which are both easily within walking distance. The hotel and staff were very warm and friendly and the service they provided proved to be excellent. We particularly enjoyed taking in the wonderful views and mountain walks during the day before coming back to the hotel for a relaxing sauna and swim in the spa facilities. The quality of the dinner in the evening was excellent and the changing menu each night provided great variety in dishes to choose from.
We had a wonderful restful break and will definitely visit again.

Stayed at this hotel 4 times now, never got round to writing a review till now. Stay at the lakes quite a bit and this is my favourite hotel. Staff are always lovely and helpfull and the food is lovely. It's quite steep to get to at the top of a hill hence the name. But I wouldn't let that put you off. Fab hotel and fab staff, love it.

Guess what? In line with the two earlier reviews, we, too, are regular guests here. Our latest stay here was our 11th. As fairly discerning travellers, we don't spend money unwisely and wouldn't stay at the same place unless it delivers the goods.
This does.
We always stay for 7 nights and usually try and have the same room. We love the dining room (we're always on the DBB basis) and the quality of food and standard of service and, staying as we do for a week or more, can confirm that the imaginative menu doesn't repeat itself.
Another aspect that we're always happy with is the friendlness and helpfulness of the staff; this makes all the difference.
We're walkers, so the distance from Bowness and the fact that its up a steep drive doesn't bother us, but I can imagine that it might not be suited to people who might be less mobile.
We'll be staying here again next year, for sure....

We have just returned from another break at Hillthwaite House Hotel (our 8th or 9th visit) and, once again, we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, the staff - as always - were friendly and helpful, the log fire and afternoon tea was so relaxing after a day out that it was hard to move to get ready for dinner!

Among the other guests at the hotel were several couples who, like us, were returning to the hotel for yet another stay - this speaks volumes for this wonderful hotel and my husband and I cannot praise it highly enough!

Well done Hillthwaite!

This is by way of saying a “HUGE THANK YOU" to all staff for making our stay so welcoming, we've stayed at the Hillthwaite many times but this time just seemed extra special
After a very long drive down from Fort William we arrived very tired but we where met right away by a friendly face behind reception who then told us we had been given a room upgrade which was a lovely surprise and made a wonderful end to our holiday.
The room was beautiful with a glorious view of the lake even on a damp Windermere afternoon, I’m not always a good sleeper so I don’t know if it was the ambience of the room or the comfy pillows and quilt but I’ve not slept as soundly for a long time.
The pool, sauna & steam room is a great way to wind down at the end of the day,food as always is fantastic with great choices.
I can't recomend the Hillthwaite enough and hopefully it won’t be too long before we’re back.
