Are we one of the Best Hotels in the Lake District?

Our aim is to be the best unstuffy hotel in the Lake District, if not the world! Prior to departure we leave a comment sheet in every room to see how we are living up to that aim – here are some of the recent comments:

“Thank you for a wonderful stay. The staff are friendly, welcoming and have made our stay feel very special. My fiancé brought me here to ask me to marry him. This was the perfect venue, the views, the hot tub, the food and the atmosphere. Thank you so much.

“We returned to Linthwaite for our wedding anniversary today and as always we were not disappointed with our experience. The ambience here is a welcome serenity and quietness we don’t get back home! The service is always high class yet friendly. We are big fans of the food here, what an exceptional dinner and breakfast we had! We stayed in room 22, we wanted to try the hot tub, which was a lovely experience”.

“Hotel grounds spectacular and view too! All staff attentive but not obviously so which helps to create the relaxed atmosphere throughout the hotel. We loved the “unstuffiness”. Dinner of an exceptionally high standard. Room airy and light. All needs met”.

“You expect the quality, the atmosphere… It’s the little details that make difference, the care and attention that is given to everything, that makes Linthwaite feel special”.

“Loved the look of the place: the extensive garden (including the beautiful tarn) with their brilliant rhododendrons, the lounges and conservatory. Excellent restaurant, we really enjoyed our three dinners. Overall service was excellent – unobtrusive yet efficient, a sign of success. All staff very friendly”.

“There are no dislikes, just appreciation for such nice physical surroundings and a team that lives up to the greatness of the place. We loved our room (4) & appreciated its view & the wonderful bathroom. Mostly, we’ll remember the fantastic meal here and all the folks who made it special”.
