We have just returned from a two night break in a Spa lodge at the Gilpin and we have been highly impressed. The lodge it's self was exceptional, private, beautifully furnished with all the finer detail thought of for example hot tub ready and waiting on arrival. The food was as you would expect excellent but will give special mention...

There are not enough words to describe our recent 2 day stay at the beautiful Lake House. Its a world away from stress and utterly blissful. The location is spectacular, the lake beautiful even in the rain, we just sat looking at the lake for hours! The rooms are beautiful and luxurious. We loved the boathouse. Its like a comfy...

Beautifully decorated, attention to detail! The service at Gilpin Hotel was perfectly adequate. Would most certainly recommend a stay in their garden room with its very own hot tub ! Very clean and could not find any fault with the decor within the rooms or within the main hotel.

We booked the Spa Lodge Sunday and Monday night for our first wedding Anniversary, which we did let the hotel know this, considering the price of our stay we thought we may of had a card / bottle of fizz in our room to say welcome, which was a little disappointing, we was also greeted by the fact of no...

We had stopped at the Gilpin once before in one of the Garden Suites (which are also lovely) but the new Spa Suite/lodges are on...

I knew very little about the Gilpin prior to booking a night there as part of a short break in the Lakes but my wife and I really enjoyed our stay. Despite arriving a little early, we were warmly welcomed and taken on a brief tour of the communal areas and offered drinks in the lounge whilst our luggage was...

From the moment that you make your reservation you are made to feel like a welcome guest. Having booked The Gilpin for a one night break I was emailed with a personal message within an hour confirming the time for our table reservation for dinner. I was then emailed a couple of days before our arrival asking at what time...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of Gilpin is a very passionate family and team, dedicated to creating lasting memories for their guests, who return time and again for celebrations and escapes. Warmth and friendliness are balanced with extraordinary service, exquisite décor and stunning culinary experiences. This five star hotel comprises two separate estates in the beautiful Lake District, with a luxury country house on each. At Gilpin Hotel all of the 25 bedrooms have lovely Lakeland views, most leading directly onto the gardens - including six Garden Suites with their own cedarwood hot tubs, and five fabulous detached Spa Lodges. The Spa Lodges were added in 2016, and are cedar-clad with king size beds, gorgeous bathrooms and a fabulously private en-suite spa each, with a convertible treatment area, steam room, rain maker shower, free standing oval stone bath, outdoor sauna and hydrotherapy hot tub surrounded by a walled garden. Add this to the mood lighting, fires, electric blinds and a state-of-the-art music system, and all of the senses are invigorated. Just a mile away at Gilpin Lake House, six gorgeous rooms share a fully staffed boutique hotel with a heated indoor swimming pool (for Lake House guests only), outdoor hot tubs and saunas, and exclusive access to 100 acres of grounds with a stunningly beautiful private lake. Our chauffeurs bring you to the hotel in the evening to dine. Dine in either the Michelin starred main restaurant, 'Hrishi', where Hrishikesh Desai combines great Lake District produce and classic methods to deliver unbelievable textures and flavours with just a twist of Asia, or in 'Gilpin Spice' a new informal restaurant transcending international boundaries, with an open kitchen focussing on dishes from the spice trail spanning the Indian sub-continent, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Japan and China. ... more   less
