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:

“This was our first visit to Linthwaite and we couldn’t find any faults. The service from all the staff was very attentive and the food was excellent. The position and the grounds of the hotel added to our overall experience. Having travelled extensively over many years it was good to find a hotel where we could enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. We will certainly recommend the hotel to our friends”.

“Thank you for a memorable stay in such beautiful surroundings. Everything was perfect, from our room to the exceptional service – great attention to detail. Loved Gary, our waiter for dinner. This will become one of our regular stays to get away from London”.

  • Service from all staff friendly and efficient
  • Absolutely stunning view of the lake
  • Very comfortable bed and very pleasant room”.

“Over the years we have stayed in many hotels in various parts of the country and in our view your hotel is difficult to fault. Initially we chose this hotel because of its reputation for good food, and we have not been disappointed. Your staff are all efficient and friendly, the standard of service is excellent. Thank your staff for an enjoyable stay”.

“Very pleasant greetings and very helpful staff, Linthwaite has a homely feeling and unpretentious (thank you for my birthday card). We liked the waiter’s friendly attitude at dinner. The food was excellent as we suspected. The hotel was recommended by friends who had stayed here. Overall we have enjoyed our visit and will return sometime”.

“I came here to celebrate my birthday and I was not disappointed at all, from walking through the door to breakfast in bed the following morning, everything was perfect. The staff, the peace and quiet, the hot tub and views from our private room. My birthday was perfect thanks to all the staff and the beautiful Linthwaite House, me and my husband loved staying here thank you”.

“We always look forward to our stay at Linthwaite, and once again were not disappointed! The staff are always very friendly and professional. The food is superb & the accommodation is wonderful. When we come to Linthwaite it is to unwind and relax, sometimes for a special occasion and other times just for a treat as it was this time, oh nearly forgot – scones delicious! We are already looking forward to our next visit – hopefully very soon. Thanks for a welcoming stay”.

“Eleven out of ten for the staff. What a smashing team of people; friendly, warm, helpful – nothing too much trouble. Perhaps it is the ethic or perhaps they are naturally great. Food excellent, beautifully cooked and presented – well done Chef and co. Situation of hotel lovely”.

“Love the friendly, high class yet unstuffy approach of the hotel and its staff. The staff are all really well trained within the ethos of the hotel – and this puts us at ease and helps us to relax. Quality in the rooms is excellent – really appreciated the ‘upgrade’ on this visit – thank you! And the food – absolutely fantastic. Love the imaginative and creative approach to flavours and combinations. Never disappointed. May try the tasting menu on another visit”.
