This is our fourth time this year and we will be back soon ! To find such friendly and attentive staff is so very rare these days. Also the fact that the staff are still the same speaks volumes ! It's becoming our second home :) x

Lake view dining room is the place to eat. Food and service excellent. Wines by the glass reasonable choice (no Cabernet Sauvignon). Bistro - food good, lacked atmosphere. Wish we’d book main dining room both nights.

Our dining experience was of the highest possible quality. The waiting-on staff were exceedingly attentive and professional - a credit to the hotel. As for the cuisine, well...beautifully presented, crafted by highly talented individuals and an absolute delight for the eyes and tastebuds! Quite simply a perfect evening, thank you.

Enjoyable time,beautiful location, good food, but our bedroom was cold, we had to ask for a heater that took a while to heat the room. A cold room in November should be heated before we arrived.

We had a couple of issues with food quality which were dealt with by the manager's at the time, apart from these we enjoyed our stay. Our bedroom was ok and the bed comfortable.The pool facilities are good and kept clean,the gym looked to be popular,when viewed through the glass wall. I hope there are plans to increase the level of heating in the lounge and bar area as both were a little chilly unless close to one of the fires.

We have been to Armathwaite on a number of occasions now over the past few years and as always we can’t fault the hotel. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived and we were pampered until we left. There have been a few staff changes but Gritis the restaurant manager ensured we had the most exceptional service. Thank you again for a lovely stay. Btw the Christmas decorations we saw are wonderful.

On my previous reviews, I forgot to mention the outstanding bar staff. Neither my wife nor I are able to drink alcohol so the staff produced two superb non alcoholic cocktails - a mock daisy and an apple sour. Just watching the staff prepare them was an entertainment in itself - eat your heart out Tom Cruise! The dining experience was to the usual high standard we have come to expect ( and receive) at the Armathwaite. The chef and his team are doing an outstanding job.

Very nice welcome at reception, very polite service from all staff encountered during our stay. We were given an upgrade which we didn't request but was very very well received cos the room was fantastic, we had a turn down service which included replenishing tea, coffee biscuits and water. Dinner was great, we went to the Bar and Brassarie the steak was fantastic. We made use of the hot tub which was a little over crowded, but it was such a great autumnal day and the sun was out. There was a Wedding that same day but didn't impact on our stay at all infact the Fireworks to celebrate the wedding was wonderfull to watch. Overall this was a brilliant relaxing experience in oneof the most tranquil places. I will definitely be staying again in the future. Thanks to everyone in the hotel. Jen

Another fabulous dining experience at the Armathwaite. The chef excelled with Stone Bass on a superb risotto, the venison was melt in the mouth and the desserts showed a degree of creativity. The staff cannot be faulted good, attentive service all round. Well done.

The Armathwaite “experience” continues to maintain and improve its already high standards. The staff are always very professional, very attentive but never familiar. The chef is obviously developing the offering to even higher standards without becoming too “experimental”. His appreciation of flavours especially those which one would not necessarily expect makes for a palate pleasing experience. Well done!

The only negative I would have to say was that we had the hotel booked for us as a gift through buy a gift.com. When we arrived at the hotel it was little things like the robes were on our beds etc but we didn’t know if we wore them down to the spa or if we took them down and got changed down in the spa. So I had to ring reception and ask. Also as part of the gift we had a meal paid for I had to ask what we were entitled to as no information was anywere. We was told £70 in total for the meal but wasn’t told this didnt include drinks so we ended up paying extra for drinks in that case we would of spent the rest of the money on maybe a dessert or a starter. Also on the morning we were entitled to at breakfast but there was no clear instructions as to what we were entitled too. I just think when people book as a package more information should be given on what you are and arnt given in the deal. As we had to keep asking. Otherwise the staff were every attentive we had extra water brought to our room without charge and ever were was lovely and clean I couldn’t fault it for anything else

Beautiful spa suite room absolutely stunning Lovely spa & fabulous treatments Food quite poor could be improved especially main courses - was in Brassiere so cannot comment on the Lake View Restaurant but breakfast was beautiful and really good as included in the price. Wouldn’t like to pay full price but the Travel Zoo voucher made it really worthwhile.

We had a wonderful time at Armathwaite Hall. The food was amazing and the service from the staff was great. On arriving on the Monday we went straight down to the Spa and although we were staying for 3 evening there were no available bookings which we were disappointed with. The pool was great and the use of the different rooms was enjoyable. The bathrobe which was in our room was torn, not what we expected , car reversed into by a member of staff in the car park and a bottle of wine added to our bill we had not ordered. Some attention to detail needed. Despite these incidents we would go back, as the staff were great.

We really enjoyed our stay - it’s the first time we have taken our dog and this really worked! The brasserie was very disappointing the service was poor and the food was frozen - not what we expected! The lake view restaurant dinner was the opposite - the food was fantastic the choice was good and the service was excellent! The only disappointment with this restaurant was the mark up on a bottle of 2017 Chianti - average price is £6.45 your price £35!!! Breakfasts were really good with a fantastic choice! Check in and check out we both a very pleasurable experience 😃 Yes would recommend Armathwaite Hall

Wonderful location. Well worth a visit for the views alone. Didn’t feel overly busy - lovely, but did find it difficult to book into either restaurant for an early meal. A little bit of music in the background when eating would be nice. Gym and pool facilities were great.
