Home truths

  • The brasserie dining option is much more casual than the main Lake View Restaurant. Those looking for more of a fine dining experience may prefer packages that include dining in the main restaurant
  • Lake Bassenthwaite is quite a few miles beyond the more touristy lakes to the east. When you drive up along the Lake and reach the hotel, we are confident you'll feel it was worth it!

4 night stay deluxe room

GW, Leicestershire, stayed: September 2018

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Armathwaite Hall with helpful and friendly staff. Food in the Lake View restaurant was in the main excellent however we found the menus too repetitive over our stay. We were surprised to have a barking dog in the next room to us considering the comparative higher cost of a deluxe room.

Wonderful stay

D&L, stayed: September 2018

From arriving to leaving we had a wonderful stay in this beautiful hotel.
This is the real deal, not some building decorated to look like the real !
The staff are amazing. The chef and kitchen staff are amazing
The restaurant and even coffee in the lounge is 1st class ( you won't get a biscuit in a generic wrapper here )
The spa is great including the outdoor jacuzzi
Every single detai, down to an envelope has been thought about carefully and well designed.
The wedding parties are away from the main bedrooms, so out of earshot, a problem in many , well designed.
Well done to the owners. We will be back.

Helen, Tyne and Wear, stayed: May 2018

We had a lovely spa break here. The spa itself is very good with lovely treatments. The hotel is very nice and we had a lovely room in the main hotel overlooking the lake. The main restaurant is also very good with a fixed menu in the evening and a hearty breakfast in the morning. The reception staff are very helpful in particular the lady who helped us with directions for walks and also the next stay for my friend.
