Non Refundable Hotel. N.B 100% cancellation charge applies. The Howbeck guest house is one of Windermere's top luxury boutique places to stay. Graded a 5 Star Guest House by the AA in recognition of the excellent customer service, as well as superb levels of comfort. The Howbeck prides on providing a delightful retreat where the warmth and friendliness of the Howbeck team are always apparent. With an aim to provide the kind of service you would only expect in some of the top luxury Windermere & Lake District guest houses. From the moment you arrive you will be made to feel welcome and to feel at home.
All of the rooms are well appointed and spacious. The three ground floor rooms provide easier access for the less able, and every single room provides a comfortable retreat after a day out and about exploring the stunning scenery of the Lake District. Each room has been individually styled with fully co-ordinated soft furnishings and ensuite bathrooms, some with luxury spa baths, crisp white linen and snug quilts adorn all beds, while cosy towelling bathrobes are available throughout your stay. There is also a TV & wireless broadband available for guests. Although being in the heart of the Lake District, it would be a travesty to miss its dramatic scenery and beautiful landscapes, despite the temptation of the luxury and comfort of The Howbeck.
The Howbeck's award-winning restaurant is the perfect place to start your day. Whether you're planning to hike, cycle, sail or simply sightsee, what better way to set yourself up than with a hearty Cumbrian platter. Whatever your reason for visiting the Lake District, the team at the Howbeck will go to every length to make your stay comfortable, to see that you are looked after and are confident that you will not be disappointed.

I booked this to celebrate my wife's birthday. Turned out to be a great choice. We stayed in the Glenridding room. Very clean with a spa bath and four poster bed. I arranged for champagne on arrival. My wife loved this extra. It was all very romantic which was what I has planned. The breakfast was fantastic and set us up for the day. The location is good. It's about a twenty minute walk to town but this was a pleasant walk and we felt quite refreshed by it. We also ate at the flying pig which gives discount to Howbeck residents. The food there was great too. Although that is another review. We would definitely stay here again. Collapse

Me and my partner recently stayed at the howbeck and let me tell you! It was fantastic. The staff were so helpful and accommodating. After a gruelling 6+ hour trip due to delayed and cancelled trains we finally arrived around half past 10 at night! The lovely girl on the front desk was so cheery and could see we were tired so quite quickly moved us up to let us to the room to unwind. The room itself was beautiful, the bed was huge and very comfortable, spacious and clean. The decor was nice and didn't look overcrowded. They had beautiful flowers blooming outside the windows. We couldn't fault a single thing at the howbeck! When it came to breakfast we both got the full Cumbrian breakfast and it was delicious. Freshly prepared and full of flavour. We certainly did not leave hungry. We enquired about leaving our bags for the day as we planned to go for a walk the day before and do nice things but with the trip we had, we didn't have much time. The lady who served breakfast was super lovely and let us store them in a safe place while we enjoyed the area at our own leisure. We would most definitely return, it was such a beautiful and relaxing trip once we got there! Collapse

We have started to use The howbeck as a company for our staff when they visit and me and my wife stayed and we loved it - its a beautiful hotel, the high standard that its kept in really does add to the experience, we felt really relaxed and also felt very pampered just being in the room. The breakfast was amazing we had such a great choice and was cooked and served to perfection - Alison was really kind helpful and tentative to all our needs... Wouldnt recommend anywhere else to stay. Thank You Collapse

Our overnight stay started badly when my husband forgot his bank card to pay! The staff at Howbeck were wonderful and sorted out payment with pre-saved details and also phoned ahead to our restaurant for the evening Cafe Riva to organise the same. Nothing was too much trouble which saved the day! Great room (the Retreat) with plenty of hot water for a jacuzzi bath and shower despite previous reports. Bathroom TV also worked fine. Loved the breakfast and the nice touches such as Sherry decanter etc. 15 mins stroll downhill to Bowness. We had a lovely time but only downside is a little overpriced compared with competition ( versus Quality) . Collapse

This was our second stay here and it certainly lived up to expectations. we stayed in the Lingmoor room which was very spacious and well appointed. A lovely display of petals and a box of yummy chocolates was a surprise greeting for my wife on her 60th. The staff as ever were very helpful and the spa pass was an added bonus. Breakfasts were brilliant an excellent array of all you could wish for served in charming surroundings. As our room was at the front of the building there was some road noise at night but that did not spoil our stay. It certainly was a super surprise birthday treat! Collapse
