4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2011

Spent one night at Lyzzick Hall and had a good break albeit one night only. On first glance seems quite Country House style, but on further inspection quite relaxed and friendly. There is a pool, large lawns/gardens and space to roam. Had 2 rooms,one for my wife & I and another for my son. Ours was a large room and adequate, in fact somewhat too large in certain areas i.e. a lot of 'empty' space. The Bathroom was nice although some of the bathroom fixtures were more "show than go", classic style wins over what you may think is the vougue from reading House & Home etc....., plus some minor elements could have done with maintenance - which really should have been identified by the maids etc. Slept well however and quite, even though quite close to the pool area. Our sons room was close by and smaller (single occupancy of double room), and apart from a TV of some age (noticed that these were being replaced it appeared in other rooms), was adequate also. Pool was nice and hot-tub + sauna, although no external cold showers for the latter, making the dressing rooms somewhat cramped/could do with lockers etc. plus more furniture.
Meals were OK, and reasonable if taking inclusive rates, not otherwise, very busy even getting close to end of orders, plus breakfast would have been better as a buffet rather than each course ordered/waited for.
Generally however relaxing and a useful find, and will return given its location to Keswick, Lakes/Mountains etc.

This is a well placed hotel for visiting the lake district, away from the bustle of Keswick but close enough that you can drive in. Not that you might want to go to Keswick after staying here, Dodd Wood is just down the road and you can walk down to the side of Bassenthwaite Lake. The hotel is also used for wedding receptions, and the grounds provide an ideal backdrop for wedding photos.
Our room was large and located near the pool, although it was quite a way from reception and the dining room. However, the bed was comfortable and the room quiet.
The hotel restaurant is worth staying in for; good quality food and service. They also serve a good breakfast.
Strangely, the pool is deepest at the centre, which took me by surprise.

Stayed at the Lizzick Hall in April with my fiancé, the hotel is set in beautiful grounds and with amazing views. Our room was fabulous, with a very comfortable bed and views over the fields and mountains. Coming from a city, it was great to escape to the country to this beautiful retreat, it was just like you would imagine from watching TV programs!
The breakfast was delicious and copious, and the staff very friendly and attentive. We didn’t eat at the hotel and went into the town of Keswick for our dinner instead, but people we chatted to in the bar said it was very nice.
The spa was a lovely addition too, really relaxing to use after a day out walking about.
If I had to say anything negative at all it would be that I didn’t like the smell of the toiletries, but it’s not a complaint, I’m just very particular and take my own everywhere I go anyway.
I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially for couples as it’s very olde-worlde and romantic!

Just returned from a 3 day break at this wonderful hotel. With outstanding views this hotel is a little gem, spacious clean rooms, excellent service and friendly attention from the hotel staff. The highlight was the quality of food and the service - as good as any top class restaurant . If you are looking for a great hotel in the Nothern Lakes close to Keswick this is it, not cheap but worth paying a little extra

We normally stay at one of the Macdonald Hotels in the lakes; however this is a close second to any of them as the staff are so hospitable. They let us keep the room on free of charge for the day as my partner was competing in an event and I would have been on my own sitting in the hotel, but no just keep the room till whenever they said. My partner was up really early before breakfast time and they made him something substantial, and again this was no problem. Lovely views from the hotel, the pool was all our own and the roomvery pleasant and clean. Food in the restaurant was both reasonable (for the lakes) and was lovely. Good selection of dishes and some lovely Spanish wines to wash it all down with. A lovely place and not badly priced at all......................

Just returned from a long weekend at this hotel. We had Room 5 Grisedale which was roomy and well appointed with beautiful Lakeland views (if the weather had been better).
The food was superb and we were looked after by a friendly attentive staff. This is an excellent hotel and thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for quality food, in relaxing beautiful surroundings.
