The Garden Restaurant
It’s no co-incidence that Rothay Garden is renowned as much for its good food and wine as it is for the excellent hospitality and bedrooms on offer. The renowned Lake District restaurant at Rothay is one of only a handful in the area to have consistently been awarded two coveted AA rosettes.

Unlike a traditional hotel restaurant, the Garden Restaurant is an attraction in its own right, with its contemporary furniture, clean elegant lines and great views overlooking the hotel’s two acres of gardens. The hotel’s kitchens are managed by Joint Head Chefs Andrew Burton and Adrian Kneeshaw, who have both been at the hotel for over 20 years.

Dishes are prepared using the freshest of regionally sourced produce, and Andrew and Adrian are proud of their unrivalled network of dependable and reliable local suppliers. Many of the hotel’s guests return two or three times a year and, for most of them, the Rothay Garden’s hearty Lakeland breakfasts, superb gourmet dinners and fine collection of wines are great attractions.

Lounges
The Rothay Garden Hotel’s two lounges and cosy bar ooze comfort and warmth – and, having been stylishly redecorated at the end of 2017, they’re the ideal places to relax after a day’s walking on the fells, or some specialist “retail therapy” in the unique shops and galleries of Grasmere and Ambleside.

Enjoy the popular all-day lounge and bar menu – or the special Afternoon Delights – as you read a newspaper or a novel and feel the stresses of the world slip away!

Choose from a great range of premium wines by the glass. And after dinner, retire to the lounge bar to enjoy a liqueur or single malt in a truly relaxed atmosphere.

The Garden
Sit in the garden and enjoy a snack and a drink from the all-day menu – or relax over a cup of tea or a cool beer.

With this beautifully located Riverside Spa, you will find the outside in, with amazing floor-to-ceiling views of the surrounding fells whilst soaking away the strains of aching muscles or stressed minds.

The Riverside Spa (number one in “Spa Secrets” magazine’s “Cool List of Worldwide Spa Openings” when it opened) is small but perfectly formed. It offers all hotel guests a HydroSpa which enables you to watch the river flow by whilst being caressed by warm water jets and bubbles, a cosy Herbal Pine Sauna with views of the gardens, an Aromatherapy Room with under-tile heating and essential fragrances, two Monsoon Showers, Heated infra-red Loungers, and a sensual Reflexology Walk.

In the summer months, the glass-fronted doors open to provide a true feeling of being in the garden with the breeze on your face, at one with nature, giving you the chance to enjoy a chilled glass of wine or a cold beer on the decking before retiring to change for dinner. Delightful!

Here’s more on each of the spa facilities:

The superb HydroSpa, adjoining the riverbank, enabling you to watch the river flow by and enjoy the fabulous fells beyond, which caresses the body with jets and bubbles of water heated to a perfect temperature of about 38 degrees. With two sunken loungers with air jets, and water cannons to massage your neck and ease those stresses away, this really is the ultimate in self-indulgence!

A cosy Herbal Pine Sauna, giving you the chance to warm up in an environment of 85-90 degrees even on the freshest of Lake District days. And here at Rothay Garden we have added a twist, with a glass front to provide views of the garden as you relax and refresh.

The Aroma Room – a luxurious and atmospheric aromatherapy room where under-tile heating, changing light colours and essential fragrances combine to provide a mood of total relaxation and contentment at a constant 40 degrees.

Heated Infra-red Loungers which are beautifully contoured and will ease those aching joints and warm tired muscles, giving you and your partner the chance to truly relax.

Two Monsoon Feature Showers, the perfect way to cool down or rinse off between heat treatments, offering either tropical warmth or arctic cool at the push of a button, and with power jets to pummel the body, invigorate the skin and increase blood flow.
