Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

Staff is okay. They were very helpful and answered all my queries. Room is okay big for me and that's good with a nice view. But for £175 per night, not worth it. Location is fine if you want to stay away from the centre. Otherwise, it's a 1 mile walk. That's about it. Everything has a price here even the breakfast. As soon as I've arrived I was asked if I want to have dinner. Of course I want to have dinner! But the dinner costs £40! I may have wanted to go grab some food from the centre but it's just too far. Another thing, this place is for the oldies. I'm Asian (33y.o) and I received some curious/not-so-nice looks from the other guests. Not so comfortable.

Just before the easter holidays, we stayed 1 night. The staff had no mind of service, no help.
With the price of 170 GBP, the room was very small and could view roofs only. Upon our request changing the room with a good view, the staff repeatedly said that "you should pay 50 GBP more." This hotel advertisement seems quite misleading. Visitors should prepare to pay extra(84 USD) to get a decent room upon arrival. This hotel doesn't worth the reputation.

Room Tip: Travellers need to pay extra USD 84 to get a good room.

Stayed here with my sister for three nights in a beautiful corner room with lovely views of the gardens and lake Windermere. Very friendly and helpful staff, especially Liz whom nothing was too much trouble. Nice spacious room and spotlessly clean.
Food good, even had my own veggie menu. Tea and scones in the garden on a lovely sunny afternoon was rather nice as Beatrix Potter would have done so with her Mother 100 years ago. Interesting photos around the house of the Potter family, make it a really special place to stay.
Would definitely recommend .

Room Tip: Upgrade to Lakeside Room

Our second visit to
Lindeth Howe and it doesn't disappoint. Beautiful rooms, fabulous service. The amazing food is served with the back drop of a pianist. Not our first visit and certainly will
Not be our last. Worth upgrading your room for a small fee, the views are wonderful.

Room Tip: Spend a little extra for the upgraded room. Fabulous space and facilities.

Just back from a two night stay and all I can say is fantastic.From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and nothing was ever too much trouble.The hotel was spotlessly clean,pool area kept clean and tidy,staff attentive but not 'in your face' and the food was delicious.We had a lovely,relaxed couple of days and can't wait to return.

Stayed here for one night only recently, and was pleased all round with my stay. The situation of the hotel is beautiful, with the hotel itself full of charm. Staff were friendly, helpful and polite. Breakfast was good, with a varied selection all round. Definitely like to go back for a little longer next time.
