Food was prompt and all staff polite and friendly
The hotel was beautiful, the service was excellent and we really enjoyed the food and drink. Dying to know the recipe for the woo woo cocktail! Even during the Covid-19 the staff were attentive, apologetic and professional. The only thing I would say is I had a bad experience with the lady on the spa reception, as soon as I got to the door to let her know we were just exploring the hotel and grounds and asked her if this was the spa, she was a little sharp with me and ushered me off the premises. It left me feeling disappointed and disheartened after everything else was so good. She was on the spa reception at around 3pm on Saturday 21st march. It would be nice to have an apology from her for the way she spoke to me.
An amazing first class dining experience. Food was delicious and served so professionally. We loved it.
We both enjoyed our virgin experience day at Armathwaite Hall The service was as usual 5 star Thank You
Stunning location and couldn't fault the staff at any point. Very courteous and willing to help at any point.
Always enjoyable to relax be pampered dine walk at Armathwaite and Spa Many thanks to you all for making all our visits consistently perfect Best wishes Harry
My family loved the whole experience and in particular my Grandchildren loved it with my 9yo Grand dauughter Bryony-Leigh saying "That it was a lovely place to be and it looked quite expensive and the staff were very good"
A great long weekend, all of the staff have been excellent, excellent service and the food in both restaurants was second to none.
Consistently great food and attentive service.
We had really delicious food in the restaurant on both nights of our stay and the service was very good too.
Breakfast not great. The whole stay was spoiled by an utterly rude waiter on the last morning. We were told to sit anywhere for breakfast and chose a free table which happened to be a table for four in the conservatory. We had started eating when we were approached by a different waiter who told us we would have to move as the hotel was fully booked and we were only allowed to eat at a table for two. He wouldn’t listen to our explanation and even insinuated we were liars when we told him we had been directed to sit anywhere. He then marched us, with our food, to a table for two in the main room and stood over us while we sat down. Everyone stared at us - some guests even stopped eating to watch what was happening. He did not move another couple in the conservatory who were also sat at a table for four. The table we were forced to leave remained unused for the full duration of our time at breakfast. This was a most upsetting situation and utterly spoiled our stay.
Check in receptionist was far too flippant and casual - I'd prefer and expect a more professional approach especially given the rate paid Shower temperature would not raise above warm Hairdryer plug was loose which was a clear h&s issue Dinner and breakfast service was too long and watching staff move chairs and tables in preparation for breakfast whilst dining in a 2 rosette restaurant was a new experience
Just had a nice relaxing few days at Armathwaite Hall for my wife’s 50th birthday. We were given an upgrade to a lake view room and I ordered the Celebration package which was very good and good value for what we received. Thanks to Nora at reception for organising this. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the staff were all friendly. My only criticism was the bar staff could have been a little more attentive when we were in the bar before dinner. There was an open fire in the bar and the lounge area. The spa is very nice as was the champagne in the hot tub. We had three treatments in the spa and the staff were both knowledgeable and very competent. The gym, whilst not massive, is also excellent with lots of new cardio equipment, fixed and free weights. We would definitely recommend Armathwaite Hall.
Great service as always
Wonderful place, our home from home.
We have been coming to Armathwaite Hall for 20 years, travelling up from Nottinghamshire. Over the years the Armathwaite experience has always been excellent. The Hall's biggest asset is its staff, always polite, always willing to help. Looking forward to our next visit already.
As always, we find our stays to be very relaxing, we love the Hall its situation, its ambience and facilities, most importantly its staff, Must not forget the cuisine . This year we invited four of our friends , ( two couples ) who did not know the Hotel, it goes without saying they were delighted with " Armathwaite Hall and thier stay.
Food was delicious but marked down as the Menu was the same on both evenings. There was only one vegetarian option which meant eating the same food each night.
A la carte menu would benefit from some changes as almost identical for the 3 nights we stayed (and enjoyed the food).
I thought the hotel was lovely, the Spa facilities were really nice, gym was well equipped, pools were nice and the outdoor hot tub a real treat with a glass of champagne. The massage I had was great with attentive staff. The Cocktail bar was really nice with good service. The Lakeview Restaurant was especially good, a great standard of presentation and quality without feeling too pretentious. The staff were very helpful and attentive throughout the hotel. We had some drinks in our check out bill that weren’t ours but that was soon put right by reception. The only slight negative was the ensuite bathroom that was quite small and tired, we were only in a standard room but a little upgrade on the bathroom would make a big difference. A lovely short break in a great hotel, thank you 👍🏻
It's our first time staying at the hotel having only been for spa days and dinners, but I can honestly say that it's well worth a visit. The room we had was a deluxe room and was absolutely beautiful. The decor and furniture were stunning - we even had a TV in the bathroom which was fantastic. Unfortunately the TV signal had some issues but we received a note to explain this very promptly and I was impressed with the communication and service from the staff.
The main course (we both had the lamb) was excellent. The chicken liver starter was OK though a little basic, presentation with a single dried apricot wasn't the finest, we've had very similar dishes with much more finesse. Poached prawn starter, it was a shame the prawns weren't hot/warm. Likewise with both desserts, the frangipane and syrup sponge would have both been significantly better warm. The frangipane pastry in particular was very cold and too hard to cut with a spoon, nobody wants a possibility of firing part of their meal across the room! Extras: Celeriac veloute was very good. Bread could have been warmed. The goats cheese pannacotta with passion fruit was great, much better than our actual desserts. Service wasn't the best, actually borderline rude at one point. I don't think it was intentional, just young (and keen) staff missing the steering of a more experienced member of staff. Seating was uncomfortably close to neighbouring tables. At a time of year when it wasn't busy, it was totally unnecessary and just a little odd and uncomfortable. Overall a good meal but quite a few details to sort compared to other fine dining restaurants we frequent. Hope this is helpful.
This is the fifth time I have stayed at this hotel and my recent visit was by far the best food experience I have ever had at the hotel. I had lamb loin for an evening meal which was cooked by someone who clearly knew what they were doing. For breakfast I had avacado on sough dough bread with poached egg, it was sublime, thank you Armathwaite hall. The accommodation and the room I stayed in was another matter so I will not spoil the food review.
