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:

“The atmosphere is conducive to a relaxing break – plenty of places within the hotel to chill out, something we were looking for when choosing a hotel. With the fabulous weather, the terrace and in particular the tarn and summerhouse, have been great for a rest after a days activity”.

“We had a wonderful stay at Linthwaite. You and your staff couldn’t have done any more for us or made us feel more at home. The vegan food, Wow, outstanding. Every single meal was a joy and we really looked forward to dinner and breakfast! Compliments to your wonderful and creative chef. Hope he doesn’t mind if we come back!! Thank you so much”.

“Gorgeous tranquil setting and views, enjoyed the grounds for nice walks, easy and comfortable environment not stuffy or pretentious, attentive and helpful happy staff, fabulous food – just perfect portions – leaving you wanting one more mouthful (in a good way). Even though we were in a standard room with ‘no frills’, attention to detail is clear to see”.

“Our visit to the hotel was an anniversary present from our son who has stayed here in the past. The hotel has lived up to our expectations and more. The ambience and surroundings are relaxing with well appointed and good quality features and facilities. We found the staff to be friendly, courteous and efficient and a credit to the hotel. We shall return”.

“I have wanted to come to Linthwaite for so long, from the moment I first saw the pictures I’ve been obsessed about it! Sadly due to life getting in the way I’ve not had the chance until now! From the second we arrived, I’ve had a big silly grin on my face and I’m so sad we are leaving! The premises and surrounding area are stunning. The views from our room and hot tub are spectacular. The staff are incredibly professional, attentive, friendly and very knowledgeable”.

“Came as a Christmas present from our daughters. Had a lovely stay. Room great, bed comfy, thick fluffy towels. Lots of hot water. Very warm and cosy. Fantastic food, staff really friendly & make you feel welcome. Views and position fab. Would like to come back in the summer and sip a glass of champagne overlooking the lake”!

“We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Linthwaite house. A unique combination of old, country and modern interiors… nothing not to like, whole experience was perfect for young and old”.

“The staff are just fantastic. Everyone of them were very natural, beautifully mannered and made us feel extremely welcome. The tastefully furnished premises would easily lend itself to a “stuffy” type attitude, but instead the place feels like an exclusive and friendly club”.
