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:

"Enjoyed our stay at Linthwaite as a special occasion, thanks for making it very relaxing. The service here is second to none and attention to detail is exceptional. Despite the weather, we were warm and cosy and your staff looked after us, especially Gary in the Restaurant. Would recommend Linthwaite without reservation".

"We have wanted to try your hotel for some time, so we decided to spend our anniversary here, especially as you offered us a reasonable rate. We liked the fact that the staff were able to call us by name, always a nice touch! All staff are charming and friendly".

"The service has been excellent for the whole of our short-stay. The food also has been excellent. It's been a real treat. The standard of the room is spot on! With the added bonus of the hot tub which we thoroughly enjoyed".

"We love the informality of the reception area, the ambience, decor and setting - what views! But most of all be proud of your staff. Nothing is too much trouble. They are attentive, kind and friendly".
14th December 2014
"This has been a wonderful weekend with my husband celebrating a 'special' birthday. The Linthwaite is the best hotel I have ever stayed at! Everything about the hotel is perfect - you have done an amazing job".
8th December 2014
"Thank you once again for another wonderful stay and for the upgrade which is very much appreciated! We find it so relaxing here, lovely staff, wonderful food so it is always our 1st choice when celebrating birthdays and our anniversary. Because we like to come and stay at least twice, sometimes four times a year, I must admit we tend to look for and take advantage of your special offers when available and we always like to visit just before xmas on your retail therapy break for a treat before the rush off xmas. The hotel feels so festive, we find it so relaxing".
4th December 2014
"Our experience here was unbelievable, the food was out of this world, all staff were friendly and professional. Room was at the highest standard, location and surrounding are breathtaking. We will be recommending to everyone and will see you in the future. Thank you for making our honeymoon special".

"We returned to Linthwaite having visited on several occasions since the 1990's...Every member of staff deserves praise, they are constantly helpful, smiley and chatty. The rooms were always excellent but even more so today. Our room, number 4, is now spacious and extremely comfortable, although it always was beautiful".
1st December 2014
"As we are local residents and tried all the top hotels in the area, Linthwaite is still by far the best. Standard are very high in all areas, the food beautifully cooked and presented. The staff are very friendly and accomplished treating their guests with great respects. Our room, very comfortable and immaculate. Congratulations all round".
"Thank you again for a really lovely stay at Linthwaite House. We enjoy our visits because your staff are all so welcoming and professional in their standards. Please congratulate them all".
