Lovely country hotel in a beautiful part of the Lake District . Comfortable room with a good en suite shower. The bar although small was good and the lounge was spacious and had excellent views of the surrounding countryside (binoculars provided). On arrival we were greeted and given a tour of the facilities with everything explained before being shown to our room. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of options. Dinner was a taster menu, every course was explained and the food was to an excellent standard.
We are on our way to Scotland and decided to stop one night in the Lakes, and decided on the Leathes Head Hotel. It was a slight detour and we are very glad we did. Charlie our host met us and apologised from the outset that he was covering on his own and to bear with him: he didn’t need to apologise. Everything worked beautifully from meeting in the bar at 6.30 to order drinks, to having a glass in the lounge where the fire enhanced the atmosphere, to a lovely light dinner. We can see why Michelin endorsed the kitchen. The menu is limited and some people might struggle with that, but from the amuse bouche, to the artichoke, then brill then blueberry dessert, before two chocolate petits four, we loved it. Sourdough bread also worthy of a mention. Astonishingly good wine list via Cortney and Barrow and mark ups reasonable, although limited choice by the glass which is expected in a small hotel. Comfy room and bed: very hot shower. We booked a mountain side view and boy did we get it. My wife last stayed in the Lakes 30 years ago and woke to thick fog and couldn’t see a thing. Not today. Stunning views. Breakfast is also great with plenty of choice. Good tea and coffee in the room. The team have adjusted well to Covid times. In summary, we loved it and highly recommend it.…
Our favourite hotel for the last 24 years. Disappointed with recent stay. Paid top price for Room 11, this room is not on the website, cheap furniture very dated, tiny shower room and tatty. Staff were great, very attentive. Food was delicious but a fixed menu, no extra veg! Would have liked more choice. Wine list should have a wider selection, top on price. I felt sadly hotel were being greedy. We have had some great times at this hotel set in beautiful countryside but now feel it’s time to make new memories elsewhere.
Stayed here for two nights as a treat, including dinner. Some things on the dinners were not to our taste, but it was good to try them. The breakfasts were very good, especially enjoyed the sausages and black pudding. The staff were very busy and very friendly. The room was a little tired in places and one of the pillow cases was dirty. Overall it was a good experience.
Absolutely brilliant. Staff were very attentive and food was amazing. Room was so comfortable and very clean. They obviously take Covid seriously. Definitely stay again and would recommend to everyone. If you’re looking for a hotel that accommodates your personal preferences stay here!!! Loved it and definitely coming back
