We spent two nights at Overwater Hall. On arrival we were greeted with one of the staff to welcome us and ask if we needed a hand with our luggage. We arrived with our 10 year old chocolate Labrador and he was also made very welcome. We stayed in room 4, a good size room with an additional sitting room,...

This restaurant has without a doubt the best service of any place I have eaten at (and that includes a couple of Michelin starred places) - polite, discreet, attentive but not invasive. The wine list contains a good selection at reasonable prices and the decor and surroundings are grand and fitting of the situation. The food was for me exceptional,...

As soon as I booked I was contacted by a manager with very helpful advice. Nothing was too much trouble. Country house decor (no duvets) superb bathroom. Good food. Red squirrels and red deer on tap. The room (although smaller than most) was still plenty big enough with views of the grounds and a spacious bathroom. Only criticism was the...

The worst thing about Overwater Hall is finding it. It is down several country lanes, and Sat Nav fails you completely. And when you get there, there is no mobile phone reception. Everything else about this hotel is however quite superb. The welcome is warm and genuine, the rooms are elegant and extremely comfortable, and the food fully deserves all...

In summary: a lovely hotel with fantastic rooms and attentive service. Absolutely fantastic food, easily on a par with any other top restaurant I can think of. No, really. Beautiful location, just be prepared for that Cumbrian weather ;-)

I have stayed at Overwater Hall many times and I have loved every single moment I have spent there. The hotel is gorgeous, the grounds are beautiful, the food is exquisite and the staff are delightful. It is very remote and provides the perfect retreat from city life. I cannot praise this wonderful hotel highly enough.

What a lovely hotel in such a peaceful and relaxing location. Service was fantastic - probably some of the best we have ever had, right from arriving, through dinner and right up until we left. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was so slick - Steve and his staff were all thoroughly attentive without being overbearing. The food at...

My (now) wife and I decided we wanted to elope to Gretna Green. The challenge was to find a location within an hour of the Scottish border to have a lovely long weekend and return to as a married couple. After considering a few hotels we decided that the overwater looked like the business. We arrived late on a Friday...
