Beautiful views of Windermere

A very grand hotel set on a hill with fabulous views of Windermere and surrounding mountains. Our room was a little tired and could have benefited from updating but very spacious and great views of the lake. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast was good although the service was a bit chaotic, lots of staff but not very attentive. Overall a beautiful hotel and ideal location.

Breathtaking View

Pros: Fantastic view, lovely room and welcoming staff. I've been asked to add a bit more on my review regarding good points before it can be submitted which is why I am adding this
Cons: The Food was very disappointing. Talk about the Kings Clothes!!! The starter I had was Tuna. What arrived was 5 tiny litttle disks of Tuna about the size of a new Ip piece some other tiny bits and bobs. And a couple of Popcorn Marshmallows!!! The tiny bits of Tuna where quite salty as expected, but to combine this with very sickly sweet Marshmallow can only be described as VILE!!! The main course long legged partridge can only be described as instantly forgettable, as carnt think of anything positive or negative to say about it. My partners food was equally disappointing the starter was suppose to be duck, and turned out to be patte of some description, not nice at all. The pork was also somewhat bland. I think the chef needs to go back to school as somewhere along the line he has forgotten the main consideration, that food is for Eating not just for looking at. And this is a classic example of Style over Substance. Before the chef retorts with the usual patronising not having a refined pallet, I may hasten to add I have personally eaten in some of the finest restaurants throughout the world. The Holbeck Gyll is unfortunately not one of them
