“Perfect mini honeymoon”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We have just arrived back from 3 nights at Lindeth Howe after our wedding on Saturday. As soon as we arrived we made to feel very special by all the staff. Our room was upgraded to a beautiful double at the top of the house with the most amazing views of the lake.
Throughout our stay the staff were attentive and looked after our every need.

Lindeth Howe is a magical place to stay and we will certainly be going back the first chance we get.

Thanks to all the staff you made our mini honeymoon perfect.

This is our second visit to this hotel. We had a two night break which included dinner and breakfast which was excellent value. The hotel is a good example of what you would expect from a country house hotel. The rooms are nice and public areas well furnished and very welcoming. It was possible to see Lake Windermere from our bedroom on this visit, but had a garden view previously. Staff are friendly and helpful. The weather was not so good during our stay so it was a bonus to see log fires alight in the lounge/ bar even though it was early June but cool in the evenings. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent with a good choice. The hotel setting is lovely and the gardens are beautifully kept.

Room Tip: Contact the hotel to ask about the location of rooms before making your booking. There is no lift...

We have just returned from a family weekend away to celebrate our parents Golden Wedding anniversary at Lindeth Howe and we could not be happier. Our party of 12 contained 2 young children and as such we were provided with a private dining room given that children under 7 are not allowed in the the main dining room of an evening. There is also a dress code for dinner, and this gives you an idea of the traditional nature of the hotel, however by having a private room this provided us with the opportunity to make as much noise as our family have a habit of doing without disrupting the other guests. The staff were attentive, courteous and catered for all our needs, and the food was excellent. We made use of the swimming pool which was great, if slightly dated. The house itself is wonderful with fantastic lounges, open fires and lovely gardens. The room was enormous and the bed likewise. All in all Lindeth Howe provided us with the opportunity to make great family memories, Many thanks.

Room Tip: Those looking over the gardens rather than the car park.

Lovely hotel. Stayed in the Potter Room, glorious views of beautiful gardens and Lake Windermere in the distance. Very comfortable room and spotlessly clean. Little welcomed extras - fridge and ice box filled up each evening. Restaurant superb, lovely food (I'm vegetarian) evening meal a must and breakfasts - well, spoilt for choice.

Lovely setting, room and staff. My husband and I had a 2 night break here which included dinner, bed and breakfast. It was so relaxing, beautiful grounds and overall an excellent standard of care and service. I loved the food and the attention to detail by the very professional, but friendly restaurant and bar staff. Enjoyed using the pool and sauna, though I think we were the only guests to do so!
Only criticism would be that we were charged for newspapers. When asked if one wants a morning paper, I wouldn't expect to pay for it- that's not common in a high end establishment- but I would at least expect to have been informed at the time of asking - a minor point and a trivial amount, but that sort of thing is what differentiates good from excellent. We will be back!

Room Tip: Choose 1st floor if possible as there's no lift

Stayed one night end if May. Paid £130 for one night. Hotel has small cosy lounges with open fires with sloping gardens to stroll around. Beware with small children as ponds are up to 2 metres dip. Room good size and clean. Corridors look tired could do with makeover. Didn't stay for dinner as £46 each for two courses seemed steep. Instead got taxi to bowness for less than £5. Plenty of choice. Breakfast service good and quality if not quantity of cooked breakfast good. Overall enjoyed hotel just better hotels for price.

Hello Oscar476
Thank you for your review of Lindeth Howe Hotel, I must say I’m not too sure where you have seen a two course menu for £46.00pp. The menu we have at our reception is the full five course menu which is priced at £46.50pp and also our seven course taster menu which is priced at £55.00pp. I hope on your next visit to bowness on windermere you will come and see us once again.

We were given a voucher for 2 nights stay, including dinner, and what a wonderful weekend we had.
We stayed in a beautiful suite overlooking the gardens and the lake. What a pleasure to open our curtains to such a fantastic view each morning. Our room was immaculately clean and very well equipped, as was the whole hotel. The word I would use to describe the rooms and the food is "quality".:
Friends joined us for dinner on the first night and we all had the tasting menu which was excellent.
On the second night we were entertained by a very competent pianist who was quite happy to play requests. We chose the table d'hote menu and for a small supplement were able to substitute the chef's choice for some courses. Both food and service was excellent, in fact the only complaint I could make all weekend was that the sauvignon blanc wine was out of stock.All the staff made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
We have been walking in the lakes for many years now and did not know that such a lovely hotel was here. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable, can't wait to return.

Room Tip: A room with lake view is worth every penny.
