"Provided the quiet break we needed. There was a weird noise outside our door on the first night which was dealt with in minutes. We were upgraded to a lovely room and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We would like to mention Naomi in the dining room. She is a delightful young lady. The service from everyone was faultless and all staff are a credit to the hoter. The food was amazing."

Sitting on the shores of Lake Windermere, Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa is a former 19th-century coaching inn that has undergone extensive renovations and extensions to become a luxurious resort.

The contemporary Blue Smoke restaurant -- featuring a 3-metre-long double wood-fired grill at its centre -- is just one of the hotel's dining options. There's also the "elegant" (The Daily Telegraph) Windermere Restaurant, with its oak and mirrored panelling. Afternoon tea and other light bites are served in the Atrium and Langdale Lounge -- both with views of the surrounding fells.

Set on a hillside, The Spa at Low Wood Bay has been awarded five bubbles for its "luxury treatments and breathtaking views over Lake Windermere", and features indoor and outdoor infinity pools, two hot tubs, and an outdoor sauna with "the best views of any sauna in the UK" (The Good Spa Guide). Beauty treatments and thermal journeys are just some of the ways you can spoil yourself at this "snazzy" (The Daily Telegraph) spa.

The Health Club facilities are free for all resort guests to use and include a 50-foot swimming pool, a sauna, a steam room and a gym. The resort won Best Hotel and Spa at the 2019 National Fitness Awards.

A 30-minute walk along the picturesque shores of the lake will bring you to Ambleside -- "a favourite base for hikers" with "plenty of cosy pubs and cafés", according to Lonely Planet. From there you can take ferries to Bowness and Lakeside pier, visit Stock Ghyll Force waterfall, or try one of The Guardian's top 10 walks in the Lake District from Ambleside to Troutbeck.

Bedrooms are split between the original building, the courtyard behind, the leisure centre building and the newer glass and slate building on the hillside. The courtyard-facing Willow Rooms are decorated with "feature wallpaper and velvet throws" (The Daily Telegraph), and come with bathrobes and slippers. Hazel Lake View Rooms also come with bathrobes and slippers and have views over Lake Windermere.

Only thing that let it down was the staff. Strange check in experience and we had poor service in blue smoke by a young waitress who had a bit of a strop Because she started pouring our wine but it was red but we asked for white (not our fault but she made us feel it was)

Lovely hotel, fantastic location. The reception and restaurant staff fantastic. Great choice of food. The only let down we’re the staff in the bar, quite rude to be honest.
Other Comments
We feel the price is based on location rather than hotel room quality.

Great service and facilities. Would recommend blue smoke over the Windermere restaurant but both good. Health club and outdoor spa facilities were great but disappointing that outdoor spa won’t be included in future. Slight drawback is the proximity of the road but turn the bubbles on in the hot tub and you don’t really notice. The staff were helpful and attentive.
