Yet again a superb short break at Overwater. The usual high standard of care and attention to detail, food to die for, and for mid March fantastic weather. All the better to enjoy the grounds and views, cold, crisp, dry and bright blue skies. Arrived home rested and relaxed. Turret room spacious and comfortable with the usual lovely bathroom.

We have been visiting this hotel since the 1980s and it just gets better and better. The rooms are wonderful, with enormous, spotless bathrooms and many little touches, like fresh flowers and fruit, a plentiful supply of coffee, tea (fresh milk) and homemade shortbread and liqueur. Although it is a dog friendly hotel, the rooms are so spotlessly cleaned that...

We went for a special event dinner and stayed the night having breakfast before we left. The setting is beautifully peaceful and we had a lovely walk in the grounds after we arrived and the next morning saw two red squirrels running round the grounds. We were told that there are deer, but failed to spot one. Technically we had...

I have eaten here a number of times with my family over the nears and twice recently with my girl friend. The food and service here are the best I think I have ever experienced! We have both eaten at various different fine dining restaurants and Over Water has always been the benchmark! I could not recommend it highly enough...

Very clean with a luxury bathroom. The breakfasts were lovely and kept us going all day. The evening meals were the highlight of our stay. Real...

We stayed for two nights this month to celebrate my birthday. It was a great choice, exactly what I expected and more, comfortable room in a beautiful setting with great food. We were all very well looked after and left feeling very relaxed. Even had a great view of the red squirrels having their breakfast from the lounge window before...

Stayed at Overwater Hall for a long weekend. Beautiful house and grounds with rasy access to Keswick, Derwent Water and Skiddaw. The hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Best of all was the food which was stunning. Cocktails weren't bad either! Perfect hotel for a relaxing weekend away. Will definitely be back.

Just returned from a 3 day break for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. This was our honeymoon hotel 40 years ago. What a wonderful place to stay. Set in 16 acres of beautiful, well tended grounds. The hotel sits in a sheltered hollow protected from the elements. One of the highlights was the red squirrels outside our bedroom window. Out hosts...

This is a superb hotel. The rooms are warm and comfortable and has a wonderful restaurant and wine list! The staff know you by name and nothing is too much trouble. All this was complemented by stunning scenery on a cold snowy day.

We have been going to Overwater Hall annually for the last six years and cannot fault it. From the minute you arrive you are made to feel so special.
