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:

“What a treat. We have stayed in great hotels all over the world and the service here at Linthwaite can stand shoulder to shoulder with any of them”.



18th August 2015

“Thank you for a relaxing and wonderful “mini-moon”(as one of your adorable waitresses called it) in the stunning Linthwaite Hotel. We were greeted by a friendly, efficient check-in followed by a congratulations card in our room – lovely touch! The service continued in a personal, friendly, “nothing-is-too-much-trouble” way throughout our stay. The room and its gadgets were lots of fun! We particularly loved the hot tub, Nespresso and huge shower and slept so well on the extremely comfortable bed”.

“We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely hotel. With two dogs, we have appreciated the hotel grounds and as a keen gardener I have been very impressed by the high standard of the borders and by the variety of flora and fauna on show and of course the delightful walk around the tarn. There isn’t anything that I have not liked about the hotel, the service has been impeccable and, the food (breakfast, lunch & dinner) has been excellent!”

“We have truly enjoyed our stay at Linthwaite. It goes without saying that the place is beautiful, both indoors and out. The staff are professional, friendly and very helpful. The accommodation is clean, updated and comfortable. The restaurant is wonderful! We really loved all our meals, and appreciated the special attention paid to our dietary restrictions. Thank you”.

“This is our second visit to Linthwaite this year, having been here for our wedding anniversary in May. We enjoyed our time here so much that we decided to come here as part of our summer break. We love the setting and surroundings of the hotel, the service has been second to none. The staff are all pleasant, courteous and very helpful”.



12th August 2015

“We had a wonderful stay. The hotel is in a fantastic location with beautiful scenery. The staff throughout the hotel are the best, very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to provide us with anything we needed. Room was very clean and comfortable”.

“Once again an outstanding stay – we very much enjoy the fact that the very high standards can be anticipated and met. Most enjoyable is the quality of the food and expertise of the chef but the special attention and friendliness of the staff are what bring it all together”.



8th August 2015

“We have had the most amazing experience staying in this beautiful hotel. It has exceeded our expectations. The food is incredible and we liked the fact the chef introduced extra choices. The thing we liked the most was the service provided by the staff. Nothing was too much trouble, they were always nearby to see to all our needs and always took time to talk to us. We never felt neglected or overlooked. Your service cannot be faulted in our opinion. We loved having the bed turned down each evening. Your gardener does an amazing job with maintaining the vast grounds”.



7th August 2015

“Fully satisfied. Thank you very much! We love the location, the garden! And the staff here were brilliant!! Feel like home, warm and touching. We will definitely come back for you”.



7th August 2015

“Perfect hotel, perfect ambience, the food service and rooms were top notch. Main reason for coming was to spend quality time with my wife. Been to the Lake District many times, never stayed in such a beautiful place with all amenities at it’s best. Thank you so much”.



6th August 2015

“We needed a quality hotel that we felt would deal well with my wife’s wheat and dairy intolerance. We have stayed previously at most of the top hotels in the Lake District before this dietary problem arse, so this time I spoke to several hotels asking if they could deal with it. By far the most reassuring response came from Linthwaite, where we have not stayed before. I also checked out the Linthwaite generally in the hotel guides and on TripAdvisor. We have not been disappointed! My wife’s dietary needs have been dealt with impeccably – with all staff being aware, and the chefs going to special trouble to accommodate. In all other aspects, the hotel has been excellent”.



6th August 2015

“This has been a delightful shot break for the two of us. Linthwaite is just the right size property – neither too big, nor too small. We felt very relaxed throughout our stay, mostly a result of the exceptional service offered by the staff. They were always available when needed, but never intrusive, which is just the way you want it. The grounds were very enjoyable for a short stroll before dinner, with some nice amenities laid on”.



4th August

“Beautiful place, superb dining and peaceful setting. Outstanding – staff here have been thoughtful, friendly and gone the extra mile. Getting the balance between efficient, stylish service and not being “stuffy” is hard to get right. Linthwaite has this marvellous ambience, reflected in your great staff. Thank you again”.



2nd August 2015

“We loved the whole feel of the hotel. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Really enjoyed relaxing in the conservatory. The food was absolutely fabulous and we cannot praise the staff highly enough. They were incredibly forthcoming, always friendly and generally super helpful. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks so much for making our stay special”.



31st July 2015

“We have visited Linthwaite since 1992 and to this day it is still our favourite hotel in the Lakes. The staff this time have been excellent (a nice touch to remember our names) and the food has always been delish! The room spotless which is a must for me”.



30th July 2015

“Thanks for a fantastic break! The hotel staff are very friendly & excellent service was guaranteed. Our room was very comfortable & clean. The food was well presented & delicious. Overall, the grounds & hotel are first class & will highly recommend this hotel to others – we will return”.



30th July 2015

“A beautiful hotel, with fantastic service. Our room was simply stunning and the whole look and feel of the hotel exceeded our expectations. The food at breakfast and dinner was simply delicious and the chef always went the extra mile to cater for my dietary requirements. The food was the some of the best that we have had! The dairy free pistachio cake was exceptional! Thank you to all the staff who have helped make our stay a memorable one”.
