“Can't wait for my next visit”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

Great setting, great place, absolutely faultless service. I stayed a night with some colleagues and had a meeting in the hotel next day. I was really very impressed and particularly pleased to visit a hotel with a truly helpful and caring personal service. Thanks

We don't tend to do a lot of business type business, but it is good to know you enjoyed the stay despite having to work!
Business and pleasure can mix at Linthwaite then!
Many thanks for the great review,

couldn't fault this hotel, we were made to feel welcome from the very start of our stay, staff were wonderful, hotel spotlessly clean, food superb and an excellent wine list.

I dont do many reviews on Tripadvisor but I have to say something about our last stay at the Linthwaite. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds with it`s own tarn and has a really informal friendly feel. We stayed for one night (to keep the babysitters sweet) for our wedding anniversary and our stay was as good as usual. The food in the restaurant was fantastic and imaginitive and the atmosphere really laid back.
Apart from the location, it`s the staff here that make it so good and they were faultless and attentive without being overbearing.
Cant wait to go back !

Linthwaite was recommended to us by friends who have been visiting for over 20 years, I can see why. My husband booked us for a two night stay for our 25th wedding anniversary and we enjoyed every minute. The hotel has an intimate charm of its own, the room was one of the most comfortable rooms we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in quite a few over the years. On the night of our anniversary we ate in the restaurant and the food was simply divine, a real experience, we have eaten in michelin star rated restaurants and rate the Linthwaite with the best of them. From sitting overlooking the lake drinking cocktails through to the end of our evening sitting on comfortable chairs with a night cap it was a truly memorable experience. The staff are helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble and the cleanliness is first rate. The Linthwaite was the perfect place for our anniversary trip and I would recommend it to any couple who have something special to celebrate or just want to spoil themselves. We will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Book in plenty of time if you want a lakeview, we were too late but had a lovely room overlooking th...

Wonderful. Thanks very much indeed for that great review. Most of our business is couple who stay for a short break, and anniversaries figure highly in influencing people to take that extra special break.
I hope we can welcome you back for many more special occasions.
many thanks again,
Kind regards and best wishes from us all,

For my girlfriend's birthday we booked a double room with a double bath with evening meal included.

The room was fantastic, the bath took a while to fill up but it was worth it, it's almost like having a mini spa in your room. The room was fantastic, we didn't get a lake view but the bath more than compensated for that.

You have got to eat here; the food at this hotel is really cutting edge stuff. Our evening meal comprised of about 6 courses altogether and I have never seen such attention to detail in the presentation outside of 'Masterchef'. Each course was like a work of art and delicious too. If you have a breakfast be sure to have your egg poached, I don't quite know how they get them like that but they look like yolks wrapped up in tissue paper.

The staff are all friendly, polite and helpful. Although this hotel is very classy it isn't pretentious in any way, we were may to feel quite at home and relaxed.

Unfortunately the weather wasn't too bright when we stayed so we couldn't explore the grounds but this is a very special place and we will be coming back.

Room Tip: Get the room with the double bath if it's a romantic weekend away, there's a room with a hot...

Yes that bath takes 20 minutes to fill, but it does mean you can bath together and spend some quality time!
Thanks for the fabulous review.
I was delighted to read your comments about the food. Chris O'Callaghan is a new Head Chef and his food is I think, pretty amazing. If you go away why eat food you can eat at home?
We hope to be able to welcome you back again soon,

This was our 4th stay at this wonderful hotel. The location, staff and food are magical. If you are considering the Lakes, look no further.

It is by far the best hotel in the Lakes.

We've been visiting this hotel for several years and the standard of food, accommodation and service is 100%.
If the weather is good, there's an amazing view overlooking the lake.
Highly recommended.
