We have just returned from a 3 night stay to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. We took advantage of one of the special offers of £75 per person dinner bed and breakfast. A really friendly young lady showed us around the hotel and took us to our room, 111 on the first floor with a lovely view of the gardens and you could just about see the odd boat sailing on the lake. As the room was on the corner, we had views front and side. The young lady happily took our suitcase for us up the stairs. Everything was immaculate with bottled water and lovely bath robes, White Company toiletries. I saw someone remarked that the inside looked like an old people's home but it felt comfortable and charming with the high ceilings and cornices and lovely views over the gardens. Sitting before dinner in a comfy chair, looking at the menu and being served drinks and canopes was a lovely treat. Dinner was absolutely delicious, with many wonderful flavours. I cannot praise the staff too much, nothing was too much trouble and they easily got on the wavelength of my husband who likes 'plain' sauces etc etc!! He even tried food that he thought he wouldn't like and loved them. Again the lovely dining room overlooking the gardens was a pleasure. Returning to our room, the turndown service was great, and especially the choccies on our pillows! Breakfast had an excellent choice. Location is very handy close to Bowness and surrounding areas. I enjoyed a swim in the pool, although a bit small, it didn't matter as there was only one other lady there. Loved the sauna.
Only 'small' thing I would say was that when we arrived a bit early we weren't offered the option to sit in one of the lounges or take afternoon tea as is mentioned in the brochure. Although we were offered to leave our luggage. Think it could have been a bit friendlier, but everything else far outweighed this.
I have heard about these boutique hotels and their prices but you can't fault good English service and politness, and attention to detail. You can see that I really am a convert to Lindeth Howe! We feel totally relaxed, after a busy few months of house renovations we really needed a break. Thank you LIndeth Howe, if you will have us back we will return!
