“Perfect hotel !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014 via mobile

We booked linthwaite hotel for our wedding and we are so glad we did. They were amazing from the start, the first time we visited the hotel we knew it would be perfect for our wedding. From the first time we stepped through the front door, we were struck by relaxed and chilled atmosphere. The open fires, the super comfy sofas and the quirkiness of the trunk tables give the hotel a great character with a home from home feel. The staff were very accommodating from our first visit to discuss our options to the months running up to the wedding. The wedding planner Kate was excellent, very organised and extremely helpful. She did everything we asked and more she is a real credit to the hotel. The food on the day was truly delightful every meal we had was amazing, the service was fantastic, our every need was met. Even when we needed to change things last minute the hotel was very happy to help. We had the perfect day and didn't have to worry about anything as the hotel sorted everything down to the smallest detail. Many of our friends and family commented how great the hotel was and are planning a stay here themselves. The food throughout our stay was superb and we certainly enjoyed sampling the extensive wine list. The food and drink were nearly as good as the staff. Amazing! All the staff from duty managers to the cleaners were all fantastic we even booked an extra night as we didn't want to leave and we can't wait to return for another visit for our anniversary, if not before !! Would recommend this hotel to everyone for a meal, a weekend or as long as you can. Defiantly the best place in the lakes for a wedding!!!!
Simply a fantastic hotel!! Just quality throughout.
Thanks again to everyone at the hotel, you all made it so perfect.

We didn't stay in the hotel as we live fairly locally but earlier this week we went there for dinner.
The food was excellent, one of the best meals we have had for quite some time.
The choice was very good, I think there were 7 starters and 7 main courses and either 6 or 7 deserts. Everything from the canapés beforehand to the hand made chocolates with our coffee were first class. My husband had duck for his main course and I had the venison both were superb.

The staff were also very good, there was plenty of them and they were all friendly and very efficient.

We booked last minute through Booking.com, was glad their was last minute availability for such a lovely hotel.
We had a package DBB which I hadn't realised at the time. The food is really good, lovely diverse menu, interesting tastes, very attentive serving staff without being intrusive.
Hotel room was nice, lovely bed linen, very neat in cleanliness, decor and ambience. Nice cosy lounge to enjoy a few drinks in or have afternoon tea.
Location is 2mins drive from Bowness so although a secluded location very close to everything should you want it.

Room Tip: I would have liked the hot tub room

Great Hotel excellent Food very helpful staff My Wife loved being back in an old world hotel in the lake district it was decorated very well we chose it because of the comments on trip advisor and it lived up to all expectations. Our children who live in the U.K. came and spent a long weekend with us they all thought the same great Hotel lovely food. For us it was a very relaxing unpretentious time at the Linthwaite House Hotel. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone. without hesitation.

I cant fault this hotel and trust me am very fussy when it comes to staying anywhere other than my own house and bed. Me and my husband loved our pre christmas stay here for the 2nd time everything was wonderful and the afternoon tea beats Betty's tea rooms in Harrogate any day! The staff are lovely and do the hotel proud representing it. Thank you Linthwaite see you in March 2014 for another stay before we have our first baby :-) x

Although we were a young couple staying and other guests exceeded our years we still had an amazing trip and would return in a heart beat. Linthwaite House is flawless the only negative we can draw from our stay in the suite was the location of the bedroom at the end of the corridor. Therefore everybody passed our room talking on the way to breakfast and so we heard every door slam therefore this interrupted our sleep.

The suite was amazing with a lake view and a hot tub very scenic and picturesque where we spent most of the afternoon with lots of champagne. The lamb main course was a highlight and the chocolate dessert was probably one of the nicest I've ever tasted. We have also visited Gilpin Lodge which is an equal standard but the food at Linthwaite House stood out for us. After dinner we retreated to the lounge room for more drinks, the log fires were burning, drinks flowing and the ambience was perfect. Would recommend this hotel to anyone of any age.

Thanks very much for your very complimentary review.
R21 the room with the outdoor hot tub is very popular and we're delighted you enjoyed it.
I am especially glad you felt that Linthwaite was a hotel where age doesn't matter.
We get people staying from families through three generations, which we're very proud of. In the end, great hospitality and service is appreciated by everyone regardless of age.
We look forward to being able to welcome you back soon,

We ate Sunday lunch in the elegant dining rooms. Service was impeccable. There were several delicious sounding choices for each course. The beef main was cooked & presented very nicely. The cheese board was delicious, a good selection of cheeses. A vast selection of wines (we tried a few and they were great!)
We will definitely return.
