Here are some reviews from previous guests of Hillthwaite.


Fabulously positioned for walking into either Bowness or Windermere. Easy access to many of the Lakes and Towns by car and only 10mins drive from the M6. I cannot rate this hotel enough. Everywhere is immaculately clean and newly decorated. The food in the restaurant is first class. We had Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner there and all the food is amazing. The staff are extremely polite and efficient. We would deffinately stay again and would highly recommend it.

“Second visit – and we’ll come again”
5 of 5 starsWe wouldn’t have returned if we didn’t love Hillthwaite House. It was just as we remembered; excellent food, friendly staff, lovely facilities – and of course, the views. The cost is very reasonable (we went in January) and overall we find it a great place to stay. Situated between the towns of Bowness and Windermere, both are within walking distance, but if you want to take the car there are countless wonderful drives and walks. This visit, the snow-covered hills gave the landscape a fresh enchantment.

I cannot fault this hotel in anyway. The room was lovely and the food was absolutely amazing (especially the apple crumble). The service was flawless, from the reception staff to the waiters. I would definitely recommend this hotel to either stay over or just to have a nice mea

 “Lovely relaxing restaurant. Pleasant staff.”

“Stunning and delicious”
Just returned from this beautiful hotel with my boyfriend. Stayed for 2 nights on a dinner bed and breakfast deal and i must add the meal was an added bonus! ! 4 course. .Absolutely mouth watering. The presentation was beautiful, small delicate portions but by far enough we was very full and impressed. The restaurant and hotel has just had a major transformation and is very elegant now inside. .old but with a modern boutique decor. The waiting staff are so professional and friendly and make you so very welcome. Can’t wait to sample again.

All of you were friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable – and observant.
