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:

“Fabulous stay as ever – staff made me feel very comfortable as here on my own. Loved beautifully written card on arrival and the effort to get flowers and champagne to my room during breakfast”.


24th March 2016

“This has been our second visit to Linthwaite and we will certainly stay here again. We love; the setting, the views, the rooms and the staff are all friendly and helpful. Then of course we come to the food, we cannot speak highly enough of the quality and presentation of the food from breakfast to the evening meals. We have not as yet sampled the afternoon tea or walked up to the tarn, so we already have a reason to return and look forward to it”.

“Warm welcome. Helpful and friendly staff, always very professional – we feel valued. Peaceful location with beautiful views and interesting grounds. All rooms most tastefully decorated and furnished – always cosy too! Cuisine – this is fine dining at its best. Interesting menus, food cooked and presented to highest standards. Extensive wine list to support dining. You have a very successful hotel of highest standards – keep it up”.

“We were here for a wedding and absolutely loved our time at this beautiful hotel and stunning location. The thoughtfulness of the staff and kind little touches really impressed us. We also dined in the hotel where the food and service was exemplary. I really liked watching the sunset over the lake while drinking a Lakes gin and tonic recommended by your waiter”.

“As usual the staff have been excellent, professional but not stuffy. The hotel spotless. After 25 years of coming to Linthwaite it has never been a let down”.



17th March 2016

“Our main reason for coming was that our last visit here was memorable. Linthwaite is a haven of tranquility. The staff are all friendly, welcoming and each is superb at their job. The food is the most delicious and beautifully presented that I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying, and in 67 years that’s an awful lot of meals!

The beds are comfy, the rooms so well appointed and everywhere is immaculate. I have recommended Linthwaite to everyone I know. The views from here are breathtaking. I walked round the tarn yesterday, sat in the delightful summerhouse then gazed long at the awe-inspiring view of the lake. Haven on earth”.



16th March 2016

“This is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in, plus we have the added bonus of having got married here some 7 years ago. We have now stayed in both the hot tub rooms and feel they are a great addition to the hotel. The food is absolutely exquisite, your chefs do you proud. We will continue to stay with you as we are yet to find a hotel to top this”.



14th March 2016

“It lived up to expectation for the quality of room, service and food. The whole place has been perfect for us. Staff are discrete but attentive beyond words. We were going on a European city break but this may tempt us back”.


13th March 2016

“Once again we return home having spent three enjoyable nights with you. We think your staff are always worth a mention, always friendly, helpful and very professional”.



12th March 2016

“Fabulous hotel as ever. Food was superb. Wine list is sublime. Level of service continues to be excellent, discrete and respectful”.



12th March 2016

“The food (which was always brilliant) was better than ever in terms of choice, presentation and quality. The service from all staff was top notch. They were all pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable. This has been one of our most memorable stays at Linthwaite”.



29th February 2016

“The staff are always very helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The standard of service and food are excellent. We always recommend the hotel to family and friends and look forward to coming back very soon”.



 29th February 2016

“This is a delightful hotel. Lovely location with great views of Windermere. Very comfortable accommodation with good attention to detail, and nicely decorated throughout. Staff were courteous and attentive, food was first class. Linthwaite is everything a Lakeland Hotel should be”.



 20th February 2016

“Excellent stay as usual, been coming for 20 years – must keep recommending and coming”.



19th February 2016

“Hallway fire creates a great impression on arrival. The lounge and bar areas are very comfortable and relaxing. Rooms are full of relaxing comforts with super beds and linen. Wonderful menu choices and food. Very attentive and polite staff”.



13th February 2016

“We have been coming back to Linthwaite for several years and despite having tried other prestigious hotels, we feel this is the place we want to keep coming back to. We feel at home here and part of this is your excellent staff, good food and great location”.

“Amazing weekend break – absolutely perfect in every single way. Superb food, polite and helpful staff who couldn’t have done more to ensure our stay was more perfect and a beautiful setting. Will recommend to anyone who will listen and most certainly visit again”.
