Laura Ashley Hotel The Belsfield

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Didn't feel relaxed and welcome at this hotel despite the fantastic views. There was a definite segregation of guest in terms of class. Car park, restaurant, allocated tables and customer service quality appeared to be dependant on room number. Staff not welcoming and nobody was on reception when we left so had to leave key on a desk. On a positive note, the food was superb, and the room was clean (albeit very small).

Came with a bunch of friends for food in the brasserie. The gentleman who took our order was slow, looked messy and very unprofessional. The food wasn't great, we paid a lot of money for this and we were so unhappy. We won't be visiting ever again. Absolutely gutted.

I had wanted to stay in The Belsfield since I saw it standing on the hill during my school trip to the Lakes. Years later I got my wish. Our room overlooked the lake - it was a wonderful view. The room was spotlessly clean upon arrival and the cleaners maintained this level of cleanliness throughout our stay. The shower was wonderful and relaxing and the bed was comfortable. We used the pool during our stay and we were the only ones in there! Prior to accessing the pool, we had to sign a consent form saying that we accepted responsibility for ourselves and any accidents as there were no life guards. However the reception desk staff could view us on a monitor by their desk. All staff were welcoming and friendly - I cannot wait to return to this wonderful hotel. I don't want to stay in any other in Bowness.

This was our 3rd time staying in Bowness, but our first time at The Belsfield, and it certainly won't be our last! Having stayed at a pricier hotel the 2 previous times, we were very pleased to find that everything here was top notch, and definitely of a higher standard than our previous hotel. We loved everything about it, from the room to the food and the service. Stephanie checked us both in and out of the hotel, and was very friendly and efficient, as were housekeeping and restaurant staff. We had a Lake View room which was wonderful, and the hotel is just up a slight hill, if you arrive from the rear of the hotel, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of a very busy August in Bowness. We will definitely be back here again, I can't recommend it enough!

Whilst we entered the brassiere for dinner this was not the best meal during our stay in The Lake District. We felt that at the time of our visit there was a lack of attention! We were seated at a table the waiter delivered the menus and a carafe of water which was very welcome. Another returned to take our order and advised that they would return for our drinks order.....he never did! Food was mediocre - We would not make the effort again to walk up to the brassiere for what we felt was an average meal and fairly poor service for the prices that are charged.

Second time in Bowness we decided to stay at the Belsfied mainly because of the location and views onto the lake. The hotel is quite pricey and almost fully booked and we could only get what was called a 'cosy double' for 1 night. It is most definitely cosy and the room felt stuffy. There was a window but could only be opened a small amount. Although the room was a disappointment the service was great, views amazing and location excellent. I don't think this hotel deserves 5 stars purely because of a room that you can't breathe in - if you do stay here try and get a larger room. For the second night of our round 2 in Bowness we are staying at a different hotel. Review coming soon...

I've stayed here before and enjoyed it so returned for the fourth time. I think it is worth paying that little extra for a lake view. Check in was no problem, room was very clean, even got a small box if chocolates which is a nice touch. Bathroom small but shower us fantastic, the walls in bathroom could maybe do with a repaint, but that is being very picky. Afternoon tea was lovely and certainly plenty of it. I only are in the restaurant for breakfast which was very good with a nice selection including fried bread, which so many places don't do. I'd certainly be happy to return again in the future

We stayed at this hotel last weekend. The Hotel is ideally located for Lake Windermere with fabulous views & great staff. Breakfast was great and we would recommend the Brasserie menu for dining rather than the rather expensive with smallish portions with the A La Carte you can enjoy the Brasserie menu in the main restaurant. As there were 4 of us 2 stayed in a Suite and 2 stayed in a Standard Room both were of a high standard .

Sunday 6th of August me and my family travelled to the Bellsfield Hotel Windermere for a 50th birthday celebration on arrival everything was fine we had booked a table for lunch staff where very attentive even though we were 15 minutes late due to the traffic however when the meal arrived two of the starter courses portions were very small we then then had quite a long wait for the mains to arrive we all ordered the beef some of which was quite chewy two of us had sticky toffee pudding which was very nice but once again small portions the cheese board was ok but very uninterestingI feel that of inclusive price of £24.99 a supplement charge for cheese is a bit of a liberty the hotel itself was very nice but alas we will not be returning anytime soon

Our daughter got married last Sunday at Laura Ashley Belsfield hotel, it was a perfect day. The staff were friendly, extremely helpful and genuinely went out of their way to make sure the day ran smoothly.
