About Hotel Miller Howe on the Lake

Set in its own exquisitely maintained gardens, and with unobstructed views across Lake Windermere, Hotel Miller Howe on the Lake Hotel and Restaurant offers sophisticated accommodation to guests who accept no compromises.

The rooms are luxuriously furnished and feature en-suite bathrooms and many other amenities.

Guests are welcome to relax in the garden in fine weather, but there are also three elegant lounges inside, ideal for relaxing with a good book or friend.

Hotel Miller Howe on the Lake is well known for its restaurant, which has magnificent views of the lake. It serves the very best of British cuisine, focusing on seasonal ingredients obtained from top suppliers in the region.

The main attraction is perhaps the view from the property itself, but Windermere has much of interest, and its town centre is about a mile from the property. The World of Beatrix Potter is 1.2 miles to the south.

Friendly and cheerful staff

Again and again guests mentioned how genuinely friendly the staff were. They seemed to take a real interest in their guest's well-being and tended to carry out there duties in a cheerful, but still professional, way.

Truly exceptional food

While there were inevitably one or two contrary opinions, the overwhelming majority of guests thought very highly of the food offered at the restaurant. Breakfast was judged excellent, but it was at dinner that they really seemed to excel.

Negative Reviews

Access from road a but awkward

A couple of guests mentioned that the access to the property was quite difficult. It was said that it was difficult to see oncoming traffic, and a few considered it a bit dangerous.

Rooms a bit warm

A surprising number of guests travelling in winter mentioned that their room was much too warm on arrival, necessitating various techniques to get the temperature down a little bit.

No real activities on offer

While the hotel does not bill itself as an activity centre, some guests did feel that it was simply a hotel in a great spot, not making the most of its position. It was mentioned that organised activities on the lake would have been greatly appreciated.
