Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed here on Saturday night after booking a special offer break through Groupon.

We started with a light afternoon tea and then checked into our room which had a lovely view of the gardens and down towards the lake. Dinner was amazing. We had the 7 course taster menu which was exceptional, thoroughly enjoyed the stone bass in particular.

Would highly recommend this hotel.

For Christmas my daughter paid for us to have an overnight stop at this hotel, everything from first being greeted at the door was perfect. Very friendly staff, lovely room, comfy bed and superb food.I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Totally agree with 'Theadewalsh' I've never tasted scones so good!

My girlfriend & I stayed for her birthday & everything (except dessert) was perfect, we arrived early & although our room wasn't ready, (we were 2 hours early) we were warmly invited in, we had afternoon tea in the lounge, the scone was simply the best I've ever had biscuity yet light, the room was lovely & when we went for our evening meal it was simply delightful, the starters, I had pigeon were beautiful, tasty, well presented & well balanced, the pork main course was superb, perfectly cooked with good textures & flavours. The desert was a little disappointing, croissant ice cream didnt taste of croissant & the caramel on the chocolate ganache was far too much & made the dessert sickly, this however didn't at all spoil what was simply a fantastic weekend, also the best wine I've drank for a long long time

Have stayed a few times at this hotel in the past and took advantage of the Travelzoo offer. The room we had was spacious and clean, the bed was really comfy with good quality bedding on it. We had a small afternoon tea near the real log fire which was lovely. The hotel was very quiet as it was the second weekend in January and it was great having the swimming pool area to ourselves. The dinner included with the deal was very nicely presented with canapés, amuse bouche and chocolates afterwards. Top marks to the service, the staff were very pleasant and professional. It was a lovely stay and well recommended .

My husband and I have just spent a 5 day break for Christmas at the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel. What a splendid time we had, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, everyone was couteous, the food was fabulous so were the surroundings. I would thoroughly recommend a stay there at any time of year. Thankyou everyone, see you again.

My husband recently treated me to a surprise weekend away at Lindeth Howe. We have been there a few times before and as usual everything was excellent. Room with a view of the lake, good food and a relaxed atmosphere. All the staff were very efficient and friendly

Room Tip: Well worth paying extra for a room with a view

Visited Lindeth Howe for a three night break during October half term holiday. The hotel is a beautiful country house situated in lovely grounds overlooking Lake Windermere. The view from our room over the lake was stunning and a joy to wake up to every morning. I would definitely recommend upgrading to a lake view room. Our room was spacious, comfortable and luxurious. Couldn't ask for anymore. The hotel itself was warm and cosy and the staff were always very professional and non intrusive. Breakfast was served in a spacious breakfast room, great quality / service. We would have liked to have had an evening meal each night during our stay but found that the restaurant was fully booked. We were told that we could have a meal in our room but this would have cost a £15 supplement for the three of us on top of the cost of the meal itself - £120. We reluctantly went out and ate in restaurants close by. As the weather was quite stormy we would have preferred to eat in the hotel restaurant. I would suggest to the hotel management that they should offer an early sitting for clients with children from say 5.30pm. Also a table d'hote option would be good as not everyone enjoys an a la carte menu. On leaving the hotel my son was given a book by the hotel management, we thought this was a really kind gesture.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are stunning
