fabulous restaurant

Susan, West Midlands, stayed: May 2019

a lovely hotel set with limited views of the lake. not in easy walking distance of the town nor with lifts to upper floors. however the shinning star at Hillthwaite is their restaurant with truly professional service and exquisite meals. A suitable place for a few days of luxury.

Pleasant stay

Anon, stayed: April 2019

The hotel was well located for visiting several tourist sites. The car park was sometimes difficult to negotiate and parking spaces were tight. Breakfasts were good, dinners were ok, some menu choices better than others. Staff were excellent. The room was clean, well equipped and there was a view of mountains in the distance. The decor however was somewhat gloomy, dark and oppressive.

Anthony H, Gwent, stayed: April 2019

The Hotel could be a lot better ,it let's itself down by not having the simple things right.
1.the pillows were like house bricks...
2.one pkt of biscuits to very mean
We had to leave two notes for housekeeping to leave shower gel...
3 went to reception once again for no shower gel or shampoo left.
.these things are all very basic stuff..
The breakfast I would mark down no local bread on offer ,just passible thin sliced bread on offer..

Great value for money

Brenda D, stayed: March 2019

A very pleasant hotel with stunning views over Lake Windermere and surrounding hills from all public rooms and terrace . Staff were extremely polite and pleasant at all times . Meals were beautifully cooked and presented .Room was tastefully decorated ,one small niggle with a 6 feet tall husband the wall light on the sloping roof of bedroom was a bit of a hazard for night time bathroom visits . Light could maybe be situated behind the bed instead . Great location for getting about by public transport . Bus stops available on the main road and in Windermere bus station . After a day walking around though the uphill road back to the Hotel was a bit of a struggle . The clue is in the name I suppose HILLTHWAITE . With afterthought we could have taken the car to the bottom of the hill each morning . Problem solved .
