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:


27th July 2015

“Our daughter purchased a cream tea for us as a Christmas gift. As it was our 30th anniversary on the 27th July we decided to add a night in the hotel to the tea and have an evening meal. What a great decision that was, from the moment we arrived the levels of care and attention we have received at your hotel have been second to none. Our cream tea was superb, we recently sampled the same offering at Reeds Hoel in Madeira but your version knocked the spots off theirs. The evening meal was a delight and the restaurant experience was superb. We will definitely consider a return visit”.

“Thank you for a relaxing stay at Linthwaite. It give me the perfect setting to propose to my now fiancée at the tarn. What a beautiful setting. She said yes”.



21st July 2015

“Everything was fantastic, especially the staff who were all extremely helpful and welcoming. The food was also fantastic and we can’t think of any improvements. The top reason for coming was the proximity to the Lake and the Hot Tub facilities”.



19th July 2015

“We have had a great 3 night stay at your hotel. What I most liked was your staff. They are all extremely efficient and professional. In fact, I would say I have not encountered such a professional restaurant team since I ate at a 2-star Michelin restaurant in London over 20 years ago. But all of your staff are very, very good, not just the restaurant team”.

“Beautiful location, wonderful hotel with top facilities. The staff were very friendly and made us feel really welcome. Hopefully we will be back again… and the hot tub was FABULOUS”.



15th July 2015

“Food – outstanding, better than the Ritz and Royal Crescent (Bath). Compliments to the chef, we will be back. 10/10 for everything”.



14th July 2015

“Another fabulous two-day stay in a place very dear to us. The food, service and ambience was again delivered with ease and no fuss. The hot tub helped de-stress and we enjoyed the peace”.



13th July 2015

“We have been coming to Linthwaite for a number of years and feel that if at all possible, it is the best it has ever been. Congratulations to Marcin on his much deserved promotion! You do have a fabulous team at Linthwaite, always helpful and friendly. Our room as always beautifully presented and a big thank you to all”.



10th July 2015

“This time we have been very impressed by the high standard of service of all the staff – efficient and friendly. Above all the food at both dinner and breakfast was excellent – as good if not better than in a lot of hotels we have visited in the last couple of years. I think the hotel shows a high level of attention to detail that gives it something special. Well done to everyone at Linthwaite House”.

“We found this place about 5 years ago online, then visited in Winter. It was so peaceful. Service was first class, the food magnificent and accommodation really good. We returned in Summer last year. We have returned again this time for a longer stay. The Lake District is a special pace, one of our favourites. Your hotel is first class along with the attention of your staff, the food, the wine and the atmosphere. We will return again and tell our friends about this special place”.



8th July 2015

“We all loved the relaxed feel of the hotel and grounds, quiet space to chill and have time together. All the staff have been extremely helpful and friendly from Sarah and the other Deputy Manager, all the staff on the front desk, the housekeeper and catering staff. The food has been excellent and there hasn’t been anything we’ve disliked which is unusual for 5 of us”.



7th July 2015

“Lovely hotel, lovely room, great hot tub, brilliant and attentive service. Lived up to all the reviews we read before we arrived. Couldn’t fault a thing, staff were wonderful”.



6th July 2015

“From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave the attentive team seek to ensure your every need is attended to. The surroundings make you catch your breath and the food steals it away completely. It was our research on the internet, principally TripAdvisor that brought Linthwaite to our attention and their high praise was not overstated”.



5th July 2015

“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.
