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:

"I do not usually write reviews however feel compelled on this occasion to do so... Your Staff are an asset to your hotel, every single one was amazing. We look forward to another visit".

"We've been coming to stay at Linthwaite for over 10 years and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in the Lakes".

"This is our second visit to Linthwaite. We have again had an extremely enjoyable 3 day stay. In particular we enjoy the hot tub inR21 which we use twice a day".

"Apologies for our tardiness, we would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Linthwaite House Hotel, from the moment we entered the front door there was a beautiful ambience to the house which stayed the whole time we were there. We have been fortunate to stay in some very good hotels, my husband said your hotel is one of the best we have stayed at. He is very quiet and doesn’t comment very often so it is high praise indeed.
Reading your check out sheet I can’t really find anything to say for “least liked about your service” – on every level you really have got it right. The food was excellent, very happy with choice and portion size – good quality locally produced food much better than a “pile” of inferior quality mass produced catering, staff very attentive and knowledgeable and not intrusive, no-one was hovering whilst we were eating
The room was fine for 2 night stay, if we had stayed longer might have liked a larger room. Molton Brown always a very welcome find in a hotel bathroom, clean bathroom, lovely fluffy warm towels and comfortable bed, in room coffee & nice biscuits, free wi-fi
And beautiful views from outside – and nice weather too. What could be better!
Thank you very much for making our stay so enjoyable, I have already recommended the hotel to friends should they visit the Lake District

"We were not sure what to expect but this was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. We appreciated the personalised service from all staff...the Restaurant meal was sensational".
J&L Dwyer, Australia
"We were recommended Linthwaite by a friend who has been here several times, and we weren't disappointed. We think it is a delightful place in a beautiful setting. The room and public rooms are lovely and tea on the terrace was magical. The atmosphere is friendly and the dinner and breakfast were delicious. We also enjoyed our little walk in the grounds".
"As you will be aware, we got married at Linthwaite on 07/09/14. Some people were saying that there is always one or two things that go wrong on a wedding day. Let me confirm that this was not the case. The attentive staff who we placed our trust in since day one delivered. I realise that weddings must be highly stressful for staff on duty on the day. They were placed our of their comfort zone with the entertainer we had chosen, but retained their composure throughout. The transitions were seamless and staff were always on hand for any assistance".
"Staff were without doubt wonderful! Always pleasant, courteous and helpful. They are obviously busy but never give the impression that any request made is a bother. It is unfair to select particular staff to compliment, but I feel Marcin, Rob, Sarah and Kip truly deserve a special mention. The staff at Linthwaite are without doubt the best we have encountered at the many hotels we have stayed in over the years".
"Main reason for coming - reviews on TripAdvisor and other websites. I also remember last year having to cancel a booking for afternoon tea here and the receptionist was so kind and understanding it has stuck in my mind - my mum was ill which is why we couldn't come. The service during our stay this week has been just as good - very friendly and efficient. Food, especially dinner, was exceptional".
