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:

7th February 2016

“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”.


31st January 2016

“We have been coming here for twenty years in May, our first visit was our honeymoon. I can think of no other hotel, at home or abroad, which brings us back time and time again! Thank you. Food is always fabulous too”.

“Been to 5 Star hotels all over the UK but for overall enjoyment and value we still really look forward to our break at Linthwaite”.



26th January 2016

“This is our second time here and to room 21. The staff are awesome and cannot do enough, but they never seem rushed or troubled. They are lovely! So approachable, friendly and attentive. The room is beautiful, the facilities are fantastic, the hot tub is such a treat and the view is exquisite. Also a huge part of our holiday is the dining, we can honestly say (as big foodies and experienced diners at Michelin starred restaurants) the service, the ambience, the quality and the taste of the produce is phenomenal! WHY bother eating anywhere else? We wont leave the hotel grounds AT ALL next time. Absolutely loved it”.

“Then of course we had an exquisite evening meal to look forward to. Every course was joy on a plate. A chef to be very proud of”.



2nd January 2016

“We have been visiting Linthwaite over the past 15 years and continue to be impressed by both the quality of food and comfort and the exceptional service we receive from each and every member of staff. Occasionally we have been tempted to try other hotels in the area, but nothing compares to the warmth and hospitable welcome we receive at Linthwaite”.

“Most liked: excellent service including all staff remembering our name even though we’re only here 2 nights. Andy choosing our wine for us and very good it was too! Least liked: nothing to declare! Reason: been here before and never fails to deliver”.



27th December 2015

“We stay in 5 star hotels all over the world so are used to glamorous accommodation with very high standards, many of which are in heritage buildings with magnificent scenery like the Rocky Mountains! So why would I put the Linthwaite as my favourite hotel & the best place to stay? Quite simply the ‘people’ lead by Andy & Sarah are amazing! It’s not about false, trained customer care standards, it’s a culture, whereby you feel amazingly valued and important when you are welcomed to stay as part of the ‘Linthwaite, Family’. A totally amazing, relaxing Christmas with great food & genuine sincere people”

“We love the understated service. Even the less familiar faces were well versed in Linthwaite’s unique style”.



23rd December 2015

“Thank you so much, we had a wonderful stay. This is our first stay with you, booked as a treat for my husband’s ‘big birthday’ and I am so glad I decided to book the Loft Suite. The whole experience has been wonderful and perfect as I wanted something extra special! The atmosphere here in the hotel has been so welcoming & friendly from the whole team and we have been able to completely relax”.



23rd December 2015

“The stay here has been excellent can’t fault the service of any of the staff who are professional, friendly and helpful. The room was very good extremely comfortable & spacious. Breakfast excellent too”.



22nd December 2015

“A perfect break in a perfect hotel. We couldn’t stay anywhere else in the Lakes. You have got everything right – attention to detail & excellent service from very friendly staff”.



22nd December 2015

“Loved the decor. I loved the Manager, loved all the attention to detail and wonderful service. Came for a cheeky night away and to be spoilt with your seven course taster menu (fab). Really no complaints at all”.



21st December 2015

“Stresses melt away and service wonderful. Food excellent, rooms well thought out and beautifully decorated”.



14th December 2015

“Thank you once again for our stay in paradise. The courtesy, attention to detail and care shown by your staff is second to none”.



13th December 2015

“The tasting menu was amazing. As always the service was friendly and helpful. The room was perfect and the view from the hot tub was incredible, especially in the snow. Our top reason for coming is it is the best hotel we have stayed in and we keep coming back”.
