Reviewed 4 November 2013

My wife and I have just spent a perfect time at the Linthwaite House Hotel. A very comfortable room well equipped and nicely furnished. Dinner was exceptional, especially after a long time abroad, I was looking forward to some local cuisine and the kitchen did not disappoint. The portions are a little on the small side but that gave chance to try more dishes. Next time we stay we will try the Gourmet taster menu, in order to sample more of the menu. all the food was excellently prepared and presented and breakfast was good too. The room we were staying in had poor TV reception but this is being sorted soon. A lovely stay and we look forward to going again.

We spent three nights here and were really impressed with the hotel. We arrived on a wet afternoon, to be warmly welcomed by reception staff and cheered up by a glowing log fire in the hall. Throughout our stay we were given first class attention and service. Staff were always courteous and attentive, and totally professional in carrying out their work.
The hotel is beautifully furnished, and décor creates stylish and comfortable public areas. Bedrooms too are of same standard. Everything was there was to meet your needs.
We did not use the pool or fitness centre, so did not give ratings for them. Attention to detail was exceptional throughout our stay. Whilst the hotel and surroundings are lovely, creating an atmosphere of relaxation and comfort, the staff make it so special. All are to be commended for their commitment and welcoming manner.

All meals were beautifully presented, of gourmet standard, with an excellent choice of wines to complement the food. Our one constructive comment related to the menu choice. If we had stayed for a week, we might have struggled to dine, without repeating choices of main course, as the menu is a set menu. Perhaps a daily 'special' would be an option. However, that would not put us off going back and we have recommended this hotel to others. Definitely a place for a special treat!

Room Tip: We were very happy with our room, overlooking the gardens and croquet lawn. I can imagine rooms with...

Many thanks for your fabulous review.
We are always looking at the menu to try to keep everyone happy and there is a choice of 7 first courses, main course and desserts. We will soon be introducing a couple of 'plain' choices too.
We hope to welcome you back again soon,

Warm welcome, great room overlooking the lake - very comfortable and maintained to a very high standard. Asked for extra pillows they were there in a few minutes, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast - service was excellent and menu interesting and delicious a great start to the day. Dinner was just perfect. If you want to be pampered and really relax this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3 great views and fantastic shower

We recently spent 2 wonderful nights at The Linthwaite House Hotel to celebrate our 1st anniversary. The Hotel is set above the Lake, surrounded by beautiful well maintained gardens and has a picturesque tarn in the grounds. We are regular visitors to The Lakes and can't believe that we have only just discovered this lovely hotel. It is certainly 'up there' with The Samling and other well known hotels in the area.
The Hotel itself has been beautifully modernised, but has not lost that comfortable, homely feel.
The attention to detail is excellent, there are rows of wellies, fleeces & umbrellas organised in the porch area for guests to borrow, the welcoming fire in the reception hallway leads through to the sitting room, and the conservatory with those wonderful views...
The bedroom was spacious and modern & very well equiped with tea/coffe facilities, an excellent hairdryer, even an iron & ironing board! The bathroom was spotlessly clean, with bathrobes, slippers and Molton Brown toiletries. We had room 3, with a large shower, no bath but the view from the bedroom compensated for that!
There are 2 dining rooms, decorated slightly differently, both with good lighting and atmosphere. We ordered the taster menu with the Hotel's recommended wines and were not disappointed.
Finally, and most importantly... The staff were exceptional. They were friendly and welcoming, remembering, and using your name whenever they saw you, they were attentive without being intrusive and deserve high praise for their professionalism.
We have already recommended The Linthwaite to our family & friends and although expensive, for a special occasion, it is well worth the expense!

Room Tip: Room 3... Great view, large shower but no bath.

What a delightful hotel giving us a much needed blissful break from our non-stop lives as parents. The location is perfect and peaceful, the décor divine but the most impressive thing was the amazing service. We never had to wait more than seconds to catch someone's eye to ask for something. The staff were just the right combination of friendly and professional and made us feel like real VIPs, special thanks to Rob Hilton who looked after us so well on arrival - a real natural. The food was great and the best thing was there were no hidden charges for the little extras especially at breakfast where many expensive hotels charge a fee for something other than an English breakfast, bring on the smoked salmon. I also thought the bar prices were very reasonable for a nice hotel. Definitely a recommendation and we plan on returning...if we can get a babysitter!

The Sunday night sleepover was an 80th birthday present for my husband, a lovely hotel in beautiful location, with lovely grounds to wander in. The staff could not have been more attentive. We enjoyed out meals, our room was pleasant, perhaps not the view that we would have liked but very comfortable. Our only disappointment was that it was so quiet in the lounge after dinner. We would recommend this hotel for a special gift and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, something to remember.
