      Negative points need fixed

      from

      My husband and I stayed at this hotel in Dec 2004. We enjoyed many aspects of the hotel - good location, nice decor, very comfy four poster bed, freshly cooked breakfast. However, there were some definite downsides which we feel the owners should rectify as they would stop us from returning.

      1. Our bedroom, although beautifully decorated and very spacious, was cold. Whilst in the room during the afternoon we actually had to get under the bed covers to stay warm.

      2. When paying 50 per person for bed & breakfast we greatly resented the note on the breakfast menu saying that any requests for extra tea, coffee or toast would incur a charge.

      3. A similar note on the breakfast menu informed us that we were not allowed to have hash browns unless ordering a vegetarian breakfast. Apparently the hotel owners object to people eating bacon and hash browns together!

      4. And finally, although we were told when checking in that the bar would shut at 11pm (early for a hotel bar on a Saturday night), it seemed extreme for the barman to rudely demand that 8 of his residents rush their final drink and return to their rooms as he wanted to close up the downstairs area.

      I sincerely feel that the above points should be rectified as they left us with a negative view of what could have been a wonderful hotel.

      Great hotel, Great food, Great people.

      After our recent trip to Malta [see Karanne Hotel St Pauls Bay], we decided to cheer ourselves up with a short stay in the lakes, and chose The Applegarth on the recomendations on this site. I'm pleased to say we had a fantastic time, the hotel is very elegant and has a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. The bar is well stocked, the food is of excellent quality and the rooms are well equipped and very comfortable - we'll be going back and recommend you do too.

      Just Average

      from

      We stayed at the Applegarth Hotel for a night at the beginning of November 04. We were given a superior double, although we felt the room wasn't very much bigger than a standard room, with no defining features to make it superior. However the hotel itself was lovely, the breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly. Be warned that if you stay here hoping to be near Lake Windermere it is actually 1.5 miles to the lake - and its a steep hill to climb on the way back up!

      Excellent hotel

      from

      We've just spend a wonderful weekend in the Applegarth and would love to go back as soon as possible! What a find! It's a beautiful hotel with a warm, friendly atmosphere. It has been beautifully renovated and has been very tastefully decorated. The owners are lovely people and make you feel very welcome whilst discreetly giving you your own space. The food was fabulous and definitely 4-star standard. We can't wait to go back!

      Nice place but too cold in our room

      from

      Very nice place with lovely owners. Our major complaint was that our corner room was too cold. A major storm with gale force winds turned our lovely room quite cold. We had to use the hairdryer to warm up the place! They didn't turn on the heat till late in the afternoon and we were quite chilly...I had to put my hoodie on!

      Highly Recommended!

      from

      Having just spent 4 nights at the beginning of September in the Applegarth Hotel, I have nothing but praise! Ideally situated in a quiet street, approx 15-20 mins walk from Lake Windermere & an excellent base to explore the Lake District. The building itself is fabulous - beautifully restored with many original features - very Arts & Crafts/Art Nouveau style. We stayed in Room 2 - Superior 4 Poster & corner bath - with gorgeous views across the fells. Do try their restaurant, all local produce, very reasonably priced & the food is excellent. Lovely breakfasts too! Friendly, attentive staff. Very relaxing environment. Overall, highly recommended.

      Lucky find

      from

      We found this place by chance whilst looking for a base to go walking from. We've been back three times now and the place just seems to get better every time. Great food, great rooms and excellent atmosphere. Highly recomend the four poster rooms and the evening meals!

      A lucky find

      from

      We found this place by chance and have been smiling at our good fortune ever since. This family run hotel is beautifully furnished, comfortable with a relaxed atmosphere. Service is friendly, efficient and unstuffy. The food is excellent, there is decent wine list and the four poster bedroom was just heaven. I can and will hearitly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to relax and get away from it all - a true home from home.

      Lucky Find

      from

      We stumbled upon the Applegarth Hotel quite by chance on a busy bank holiday Sunday, having passed endless NO VACANCIES signs in windows along the way. Upon entering the hotel we immediately felt at home and were delighted when Suzanne the owner informed us that, yes, she did have room for the night, as someone had unexpectedly checked out. We had a beautiful four poster room which reflected the standard of the rest of the hotel. The bar was cosy and homely and the resturant was excellent. The owners have clearly gone to a lot of trouble to make this a very pleasant place to visit. The Applegarth is highly recommended. It has a lovely relaxing, homely atmosphere and we shall certainly be back.

      What a stay!

      from

      Spent last weekend at the Applegarth Hotel in Windermere and I was chuffed to bits with the quality of the place. Our four poster room had a corner bath and great views of lake windermere and I have to say the evening meals were fantastic.I would be happy to recommend this hotel to anyone at all. It is a must for anyone coming to the lake district.

      Juliet says the team arrived safely last night in Kampala after an 'adventurous' journey. Think of them today as they adjust to the heat and the culture. Today is planned to be a 'going to Church' day before they start work tomorrow. Their flight from Manchester yesterday morning was delayed by an hour so let's hope that their bags (there were a lot of them!) made the connection at Heathrow safely as ...

      Great news - thanks to Simon's persistence we heard last night that we are being given some HIV and malaria test kits by a friendly supplier. This has gone right to the wire as the kits are being delivered on Friday (tomorrow) i.e the day before most of the team departs fro Uganda!

      ... still very thoughtful until Daddy said...you beat me!!! You were so fast Marn's well done! It was high five's all round and off we went again. Marni even walked!
      Rosie had a great time too, she went down the sledge with Nanny several times, avoided the luge and the donuts, just like Marni!!

      We were over the moon, because it meant we were likely for a good trip next week!
