Excellent friendly service. Stayed in one of the turret rooms - extremely comfortable and spacious with a superb bathroom.
The food was delicious and plentiful (breakfast would see you through the day !!) and there was a good choice of dishes in the evening.
Deeply disappointed that we are unable to visit this year (four family weddings made this impossible) but hope to stay again next year.
Cannot pay enough compliments

We are local and have only stayed on one occasion. For more than 20 years we have visited for evening meals and lunches (3 times in the last 2 weeks). If you want that special visit away in perfect peace where every thing is quietly taken care of, then Overwater Hall will tick all the boxes. Beautiful setting, Grand Mansion, Restuarant and service second to none, with owners passionate about what they do. Even if you want a light lunch give it a try and be warned you will want to be back to sample more of "Overwater" Located in lovely Lakeland I feel you will not better this piece of heaven in the U.K. Graham.

Spent a lovely 2 day break at Overwater which was selected as it was number 1 in the keswick area on trip advisor. We weren't disappointed in any aspect of our stay other than it wasn't long enough. Stayed in the garden room which allowed us access to a fantastic whirlpool bath, most welcome after a days walking, our own patio area and access to the gardens. The food was very special too and the award of 2 AA rosettes gives some idea of the standard.

We had an wonderful time staying at the Overwater Hall. My husband, one-year-old son, and I stayed for 5 nights and loved every minute of it. The staff were extremely accommodating, resourceful, and considerate. We were worried that having a small child might be an issue since the hotel is quite luxurious, but the staff and guests made us feel very welcome and right at home. I might add that we made a conscious effort to be considerate of the other guests and staff by not letting our child wreak havoc throughout the hotel. We enjoyed breakfast every morning in the restaurant and found the food to be very well prepared and quite delicious. We had a fabulous dinner one evening in the restaurant while our son slept in our room monitored by a baby listening device. We would never normally feel comfortable leaving our child alone for any time at all but due to the intimacy and small size of the hotel we felt reassured that he would be completely safe and the dining room where we ate was at most a 2 minute walk from our room. We will definitely return to the Overwater Hall if we plan another holiday in the Lake District. The hotel, grounds, and location are idyllic. We were so pleased with our choice. One last thing that really impressed us was that several of the guests we met were repeat clients and some reported that they have been vacationing at the Overwater Hall for years.

As described by others perfect ambience in a fantastic location. I was staying overnight in Carlisle and there is no high quality accommodation in Carlisle.
Here the welcome is as described by others. Welcomed at the entrance by Luke an excellent intro.
I had a small room which was excellent if possibly a little small. My only additional request would be a small fridge.
The pre dinner bar was good fun and enabled one of the Proprietors to take the dinner order prior to sitting in the dining room. The food was all one could hope for, Beautifully presented, excellent choice for each course and I consider it to be fantastic value at £40.
Good choice of wines to suit all pockets.
I was asked about breakfast and they were delighted to accommodate my early start.

This was excellent, no that does not describe it well enough. It was prepared and served to perfection
Certainly not the cheapest hotel by any means but if you want to be treated fantastically go there and meet the wonderful Angela Hyde and her beautiful Black Labradors
