Negative points need fixed
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.
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!
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
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!
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.
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
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.
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!
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.

Today (Saturday) we're having a day off and spending it at the Speke Resort in Kampala. It's a very smart place on the shores of Lake Victoria and has a large swimming pool.
Juliet was about to apply her sun cream when we noticed that what she thought was sun cream was actually Spanish hairspray. She had been using it all day yesterday at Sanga and wondered why it had not been very effective!
Last night we got back to the hotel just before 9 so we sat down to eat at about 9.30 and had a good meal. Because it is graduation week at one of the universities there seem to be parties every night. By 11 the party in the hotel had just about finished. When Julia and I went to bed there was a party going outside our window but outside the hotel compound. It sounded like a crazy 1980s disco and was close enough for us to feel that we were right in the middle of it. No chance ...
This morning Joe and Tom were woken up at 6.45 by a man hammering furniture together right outside their window. They were not happy as today we were not setting off until 9am and this was to be our lie in day!! Every day i seem to write that each day has been hotter than the previous one. We had some welcome rain overnight and had hoped that it would be a little cooler for us. Not so! We arrived at Bombo at about 11am. There were around 200 people ...

Matt and I went for a walk to the Midland hotel, back along the seafront, through Morecambe village. We had and Irish and Bailey's coffee and then braved the icy 1 degree conditions on the way back...to the mayhem of family dinner.
... before catching the bus back down the hill. We moved on, through Newby Bridge to Coniston Water, and found a shady spot just off the road, where we sat on the beach, soaked up the clear air (Charlie even had a swim - amongst hundreds of tiny fish nibbling at his legs!) and enjoyed the ambience and lack of crowds. This is the place where Sir Malcolm Campbell and his ...
