“Lovely communal areas but tired bedroom”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

We stayed for one night and on arrival had a tasty afternoon tea for two, followed by a delicious evening meal in the restaurant. The lounges and restaurant were lovely, comfortable spaces to relax but we found that the bedroom, swimming pool and gym were all a little tired. Overall it was a nice place to stay for one night but didn't quite live up to the level of luxury we'd hoped for.

Room Tip: There is no lift so if you have trouble going up three flights of stairs you might want to request a...

Thank you for your review of Lindeth Howe Hotel. It’s great to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience with us.
At the moment the Hotel is getting a revamp before Christmas arrives so on you next to Lindeth Howe you will see a difference in the bedroom, bathrooms and the corridors.

Bought my mum afternoon tea for two voucher from activity superstore for her birthday.
On arrival the hotel looked closed. After opening the front door we entered a hall and we were unsure what to do. There was no reception desk just an office.

We were told to sit in any room
When the waiter came he was polite and friendly but not very well informed about the entitlement of the voucher (going away twice to ask).
The food was very good and well presenred. Variey of sandwiches, crisps, fresh scones, brownies, tart, muffin and tirimisu shot.

My mum would have liked a fresh pot of tea but there was no one to ask and the waiter never checked to see if everything was alright.
After sitting for a long time we had to go back to the office to ask if they needed the voucher.

The kitchen staff are doing a good job, pity about the front of house.

Due to an accident I have walking problems and use a mobility scooter. Rooms 1 & 2 are on the ground floor easily reached through a separate and flat access and are ideal for my needs, the rooms are large enough to easily house my scooter without it being obtrusive, I even take it to the dining room door and we are given a suitable table just inside.
Being on the ground floor the rooms are a little darker and obviously don't have access to the same views as higher rooms but they are well appointed and have a very useful bathroom.
I can only endorse other writers in there praise of the hotel and the kindness and thoughtfulness of all the staff and have no hesitation in fully recommending this hotel

Had three nights here to celebrate wedding anniversary. Room was good; staff and food were excellent and very good value. We will be back, but will not wait for the next anniversary.

PS Ignore Satnav when travelling there for first time.

We stayed for 2 nights as 3 couples for a friends 50th and it was fabulous. The rooms were very large and comfortable the view from the top floor of the lake stunning. The food was some of the best I have ever eaten, the staff couldn't do enough to help and were very pleasant. They made the evening special by cooking a special birthday cake to our requirements. Breakfast was cooked for you and was very good none of that buffet rubbish!

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary. It is in a lovely spot, and has nice gardens. Our room, 107, was very comfortable with good views out to the lake.
The staff were extremely kind and even gave us a card for our anniversary.
The best thing was the food, which was scrumptious. Delicate portions, but packed with flavour and beautifully presented.
We did not try the swimming pool, so can't comment on this.
We would definitely recommend this for a relaxing night or weekend away.

Room Tip: Don't think you can do much better than 107. Room 118 was a bit noisy, seemed to be over a gener...
