“A great weekend............”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Like many regular users of Trip Advisor i read the reviews for Linthwaite before deciding to book. I have to say the glowing feedback that i read was very accurate. I booked the weekend for my partners 40th birthday. The weather was glorious which is always helpful but on arrival at Linthwaite we were quite simply blown away by the incredible location overlooking the lake.
Both inside and out of this hotel has been given an awful lot of thought, it will appeal to anyone with a discerning eye, the lounges, restaurant and bedrooms were modern , very clean and smart. Our evening meal was presented beautifully and tasted wonderful, accompanied by a carefully chosen bottle of Red from their extensive wine list. The level of service from the staff throughout our stay was excellent.
Breakfast was equally wonderful.. ...the only negative to the whole weekend was when we had to leave !

We will certainally be back, what a great experience.

As a regular visitor to Linthwaite I keep wanting to return. The food is excellent and the service is first-rate. The rooms are variable and are expensive - I have booked specific rooms and found myself somewhere else before now which is irritating. But I still want to go back!

What can I say other than worth evey single penny . The other half took me for my 40th Birthday and booked the Junior suite (No room 7 ) for 3 nights, which was lovely light and comfortable with lovely views of the lawns. The food was wonderful and the service was seemless and the staff were so lovely I had the best 40th ever. Thanks to all the staff who made our stay so special they work very very hard to make everything perfect we will be booking again I am sure of that . The Shades x

Room Tip: Go for the suite if you can well worth the extra money and space

Stayed in the linthwaite for a night over the may bank holiday.
It was a birthday present from my partner and all around couldn't have been better!
The service from start to finish was faultless.
We had a lake view room (No 15) that was beautiful and had everything needed for a relaxing break.
Our evening meal was excellent, could not be faulted and breakfast was also extremely good.
If your a thinking of visiting the lakes and want somewhere that is positioned in a very good place to explore then this is the place for you.
Gentle 15min stroll into bowness where if you wish you can get the boat to many a different place, personally I like to stay around bowness as it is a very charming place.
The linthwaite comes very highly recommended and we will definetly be returning.
Thanks to all the staff for making it the best birthday present ever!!

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

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 !
