A weekend break with our sister and brother-in-law to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel is beautiful and in a spectacular location. With a magnificent menu and courteous attentive staff our weekend became a relaxing culinary delight. Mike Bevans has a perfect balance with Linthwaite which only goes to prove that you get what you pay for. Can't wait to return. PS... Nearby Windermere Golf Club is as perfect a course as you will find with breathtaking views. Can't wait to return there either!

Fabulous food in a beautiful setting; staff are friendly and very helpful. How anybody in his or her right mind can rate it as 'terrible' is beyond me.

I had a one night stay here at the end of January with my husband, brother & sister-in-law as an after Christmas treat. My brother and his wife have stayed here before and rated the place highly. We were not disappointed. We booked standard rooms (this was all that was available when booking in early Jan) which were an adequate size and beautifully furnished. We had dinner in the restaurant. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. There are a few sitting areas with fires blazing and the atmosphere was lovely on such a chilly night and you never had a problem getting a seat.

The hotel is located in a great position overlooking the lake and has it‘s own tarn in the grounds..

Only downside is that there is no on site swimming pool or spa facilities. You can use somewhere nearby though.

I would definitely like to stay here again.

We have stayed several times at Linthwaite and have always found it to be excellent, it never fails to impress. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, and it is good to know that the owner is directly involved and always asks for your comments and responds to them. It shows the care taken in ensuring guests' comfort. We have recommended this hotel to many of our friends and family.

After reading the reviews on TA and being offered 50% off "January sale". I booked this hotel for my husband's birthday treat. The hotel is located in a fabulous position with great views over the lake. We booked a standard room which was a decent size, it had a very comfortable bed and a clean bathroom. We ate in the restaurant on our first evening (This was part of the deal). We thought the price £50 each, was expensive but found the meal to be very tasty and presented beautifully. Breakfast was also presented nouvelle cuisine, which looked and tasted fabulous. The staff were very pleasant and the atmosphere was great. The lounge and conservatory were charming and very comfortable. You must take a walk around the grounds especially the tarn which are beautiful and well kept.

We stayed here for 3 nights for a short walking holiday and miraculously for the Lake District it didn't rain so we managed to do several of the walks on the hotel website!. Our room was quite small but very nicely appointed. The food was of a very high standard, lovely breakfast and evening meal. What makes the hotel though is the staff, they are all so pleasant and welcoming without being overwhelming. We enjoyed our stay very much and will certainly return.
