“Nicest hotel EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed for my bday was already in lakes and stopped at Aphrodite for two nights booked in last min so was chuffed when got a room for 2 nights, room 15 I think, all they had left but really nice wanted the hideout ;) staff really welcoming and friendly advised restaurants and places to go, room with chocolates and petals and personal letter and I brought the teddy bear love it. This hotel is 2nd to none, only down fall no room service but can take drinks to room. Stayed loads of nice places but this is by far my favourite

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

Happy to hear we are your favorite hotel and you decided to stay with us to celebrate your birthday. The Teddy bear is always a popular buy & we love them too. We look forward to you staying with us again; maybe to try the Hideout, book early though as this is very popular.

This is a fabulous little hotel with excellent attention to detail. The staff were thoughtful and friendly, and the little romantic extra touches made our short mini-moon very special. We stayed in a luxury double room which was beautifully appointed, complete with jacuzzi bath and bathroom TV. The location in Bowness was very convenient and the delicious breakfasts kept us going all day. Can't wait to go back!

We have been regular visitors to Bowness for a number of years now but we would find this hotel very difficult to beat. We chose the standard room 3, as the price was comparable to the rest of the accommodation in Bowness and as it wasn't really a special occasion, we couldn't justify one of the more expensive rooms. However in no way could you call it a standard experience. The thing that immediately stood out for us on arrival was the attention to detail. We were shown to our room, to find the mood lighting on and soft music playing in the background. The room was immaculately clean. There were a box of chocolates and a scattering of rose petals left on the bed. We returned from our night out to find the cushions had been removed from the bed and another single chocolate left on each pillow. Breakfast was excellent. My husband had the full English while I had eggs royale. Both were delicious. We will definitely be returning.

Thank you for posting such a perfect rounded review of the hotel, and as you are a regular visitor to Bowness , we are pleased that you have mentioned that our ‘standard’ is not standard at all. We are delighted that your stay with us was amazing and we look forward to your return.

I can not recommend this hotel enough. I hired the hideout boutique house for 1 night and wish it was a week. The decor is amazing throughout the whole house and the attention to detail is just amazing. It is a lot of money but well worth it for the ultimate in luxury and relaxation. The complimentary items you receive in the house on arrival are worth nearly a third of the cost of the night stay, include Smirnoff, Bacardi, gin, tequila, bottled beers and soft drinks. Can even have the local Italian restaurant deliver your evening meal which I must say was outstanding (see other reviews).

Room Tip: Indulge yourself and experience this excellent house/hotel.

Wow, what a review, sorry to hear that the only disappointment was it was only for one night. The Hide out is the perfect place for total relaxation and pure indulgence, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed, if only for a short time. We look forward to you returning to us for a longer stay next time.

I've been waiting to go for over 2 years. (Just needed the right person to take) so i had great expectations. I wasn't disappointed. Far from it, I've stayed in a lot of hotels over the years all over the world and this one is my favourite. Everything was perfect, only thing I'd change is the duration of my next stay. Can't wait for my, sorry, our next stay. It was simply amazing. Highly recommended.

We stayed in 'The Sanctuary' suite for one night and the whole experience was nothing short of amazing. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a fabulously romantic short getaway. The staff were more welcoming and helpful than anywhere we've stayed before. Hot tub, rose petals, crystal bath, TV for your viewing pleasure at the end of the bath, surround sound inside and out.....need I say more! We will be back very soon.

After reading the reviews our expectations were high, unfortunately, this 'boutique hotel' definitely didn't live up to them.Room and bathroom were small, dusty, dark and in need of an upgrade. Additionally the large bay window offers no privacy and is directly on the roadside.There is no bar, and the dining room decor is very B&B! The breakfast was nothing special, however the service was fine.The artificial petals on the bed quite aptly depict a 'wannabe status". On the plus side, the location is central.
