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:

“Our top reason for coming was to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. We stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it so much we’re planning to come here for every anniversary”.

“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”.

” I think you have an exceptional hotel in a beautiful setting. The staff most attentive and very pleasant and respectful. The food I found delicious, well cooked and well presented. I was exceedingly happy with my room, and the bed was as good as home, which is a high compliment coming from me”.

“Thank you very much again for the lovely treats of Linthwaite. All is brilliant and your Cumbria Life award well deserved. Everything is relaxing and attractive and everyone friendly and helpful – especially Gary at dinner”.

“I would certainly have to say I was impressed with the attentiveness, politeness and general demeanour of all the staff across our two day stay. The breakfast options were simply divine and there was a wide range of options for all tastes. Our wedding dinner was nothing short of exceptional (especially the lamb!) and again, the service provided by the staff was of the highest order. The rooms provided a haven of comfort and convenience with everything I needed for my stay. The setting and house/grounds itself lend very well to the beauty of the lakes”.
