My wife recently treated me to a night away spa break at the Coniston Hotel for my birthday. Having never tried a spa before, I wasn't sure whether this gift was entirely for me, however having done it was very glad that we did. The hotel is clearly modern, and I understand owned by the Bannister family, who have had...

We booked this hotel for our special wedding anniversary as we had driven past many times and I had always wanted to stay there. We were greeted by very friendly staff who could not do enough for us throughout our stay. We stayed in a suit with balcony overlooking the lake and high dales, it was well equipped and very...

Without a doubt, the thing that puts this hotel into the absolute top category for me is the wonderful view from the terrace / Huntsman restaurant. There will be very, very few places in the world with that kind of very pastoral, northern English rural type view, with the added aspect of, in some seasons, constantly changing weather. For me...

We visited for a wedding earlier this year and setting was absolutely beautiful, as was the ceremony and reception. The couple had a certain area of the hotel to themselves which allowed for separate areas and for breakfast to be taken separate to other hotel guests which was a nice touch. They have some great open fires and a wide...

I visited for one night for a mother-daughter break. We arrived slightly early for check in so were told the room was not ready (which we expected as we were early). Despite check in being from 2:30, however, we did not get the room until close to 4:00 and continued to be told it would be ready in 10 minutes...

Just enjoyed a one night stay so that my wife could enjoy the spa facilities. We opted to have dinner in the Huntsman bar, a familiar setting as we have had several lunches there. The main menu was disappointing; the dishes on offer were standard pub grub rather than the more enticing offerings expected in a venue of this standing....

The best day of our lives. The staff and experience we had was second to none. I would recommend The Coniston to anyone for a wedding, spa day, meal or overnight stay. The staff couldn't be more helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Can't wait to go back.
