The Holbeck Ghyll Hotel, Lake Windermere, UK

The location and reasons to visit:

Review of the Holbeck Ghyll Hotel, Lake Windermere, UK:

The Holbeck Ghyll Country House hotel is a real gem. For a relatively small hotel, it is expertly run, with exceptionally good service and absolute efficiency, in ever way. But, as well as being so efficient, the people who work there are friendly to the appropriate degree and knowledgeable about local attractions and also other places, further afield.

The hotel is located on a hillside, overlooking amazing views of Lake Windermere. In warm months, lunch taken of the large patio overlooking the lake and mountains is a real joy.

It is rare that I visit a hotel and can find nothing, absolutely nothing, to be critical of, but Holbeck Ghyll is uniquely excellent in that respect.

To summarise, fabulous views, brilliant service and wonderful food, beautifully presented, in one of the best-run hotels I’ve experienced, anywhere in the world. A wonderful hotel.
