We stayed at Lindeth Howe overnight on a Travelzoo voucher, which was excellent vfm. Afternoon tea on arrival, 3-course dinner, bed and breakfast. The hotel itself is homely and comfortable...makes you want to stay indoors and hunker down! We were greeted warmly and offered afternoon tea as our room wasn't quite ready. The set menu included a hazelnut brownie and we asked for a nut-free alternative, which we did manage to get but were made to feel a bit of a nuisance.
The room itself was very pleasant; on the small side but warm and comfy. Filter coffee and hot chocolate were a nice touch and were very welcome. The evening meal was very good and the service excellent. After dinner drinks were taken in one of the many sitting areas. This is where I think the Lindeth Howe has missed a trick: each sitting room/area was welcoming and filled with comfy furniture but only one had an open log fire; the others were imitation gas and there was one electric.
Breakfast the following morning was excellent, as was the service.
All in all, a lovely short break and good value for money. Don't go expecting a 'grand' house; Lindeth Howe is more of a sumptuous country home.
