Having just returned from a stay at this wonderfully located hotel I am sure I will be back to visit! The hotel is still under-going a major refurbishment which I was warned about before my stay, and it is clear to see that when these refurbishments are complete the hotel will be transformed into a light and airy, upmarket venue with fantastic views.

The main restaurant was closed on this occasion due to the works but my colleague and I dined in the newly refurbished “Dolly Blue” bar. This has been tastefully redesigned and is all completely new. It sits right next to the waters edge and is such a great location. We had some stunning food which we were not expecting so that was an added bonus. It was a shame it was quite quiet but given the time of year I guess that was to be expected. I can´t wait to go back in the summer and drink a nice pint of cider sat by the river there!

The cascades Spa is an awesome set up too, with a huge heated pool, lovely hot Sauna and Jacuzzi. Most hotels I go to you have to ask to have the Sauna turned on and by the time its gets hot enough it is always too late! The staff in here were very friendly and courteous and the shop inside was convenient too.

My room was superb, this also overlooked the river and it had a small balcony too. The beds were really comfy and the bathroom very nicely appointed. There was even a spa bath which I didn´t use but it was a nice touch. I would definitely use it if I came back on a leisure break.

All in all I had a great stay and was pleased my company sent me to this place. I had not heard of it before but I will definitely return. I did read other reviews when I heard I was going to be sent here and I must say some of the reviews do not do this place justice! As I mentioned before, they are still going through a major refurb. but I was told this would be finished by mid March. I would recommend anybody to give this place a try, I will certainly be going back.

Obviously the hotel has recently been updated, so if you fancy looking and feeling 10 years younger? Then forget about going under the knife! Just go to the Whitewater Hotel for the 2 day mini-pamper break, we thought we’d died and gone to heaven!
The food was superb, nothing was to much trouble for the staff, they were very happy, helpful, friendly and smartly dressed especially on reception! The hotel was very clean and bright, the pampering… well you will have to find out for yourselves! The only down side was having to leave! We were so impressed that we’re going back in August, can’t wait!

Thanks from Two very happy customers!

Great place to stay, we were given a wonderful 4 poster suite room with fantastic view over the river and even a bottle of chilled champagne waiting in the room… large room with sofa area and great bathroom with jacuzzi.

The bar area inside and out was also quite cool, very nice place to chill out with a glass of wine and a beer and watch the river go by. Very comfortable leather sofa’s upstairs which we had to ourselves one evening. Their fish and chips was great also… no complaints at all.

My husband and I have just returned from a midweek break with yourselves and I would
just like to say a MASSIVE THANKYOU for making my 40th birthday very special.

Your hotel and staff exceeded our expectations and we would recommend you to anyone who needed a great hotel in The Lakes.

An extra thank you to Suzanne (reception), David (Dolly Blue), Sinead (Cascades), Fileep (Waiter) and of coarse your fantastic chef in Dolly Blue.

They are a credit to your business.

The whole experience was fantastic, from the wonderful four poster room, the food and drink and also the spa treatments, I couldn’t fault anything over the whole weekend and I will be recommending you to everyone we no. I would like to thank all the staff for their wonderful service and helpfullness. We will most certainly be back in the future, all the best and many many thanks again.
