This hotel was by far one of the best I have stayed in. The food/menu, rooms, staff, all aspects of this hotel were excellent. The staff were polite, friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. The menu was extensive, the food well prepared, and delicious. Our room was lovely, beautiful furnishings, comfortable bed. There was a... More

We had a one night stay last week. Very friendly staff, management with a sense of humour, and an excellent meal in the dining room with the best lemon posset I've had ever!! Great walking form the hotel and used the spa facilities 10 minutes away with outdoor hot tub.

This hotel is in such a lovely location and within its own grounds which are lovely. Some rooms on the first floor have a balcony overlooking the grounds which I thought was a nice change and a bit different. The room we stayed in was very spacious, the double bed was massive and most comfortable. The bathroom was also large... More

Fell in love with this place as soon as we stepped over the threshold. Small, very cosy, well appointed and delightfully decorated, Rothay Manor raises expectations from the outset. It then proceeds to deliver them. Room 14 was excellent-very roomy, huge bed, large sitting area with comfortable chairs and a nice view. Lunch and breakfast were again superb and the... More

We had a wonderful stay here, only one night which was a pity. The room was beautiful with a balcony and view over the garden. The room was scrupulously clean and very comfortable, the biggest bed I've ever seen! Lovely bed linen, squishy cushjions - very comfortable. Didn't sample the evening meal as we were visiting friends but the breakfast... More

Once again we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. As usual staff were very friendly & attentive & those 'behind the scenes' in the kitchen excelled with delicious meals, both breakfast & evening, together with tasty afternoon tea. A good base for covering all areas of the Lakes. A short walk away from Waterhead, looking over Lake Windermere. We always... More

Stayed with my wife on a walking trip, great little hotel with very friendly staff. The rooms are clean as is the hotel, we didn't have an evening meal as we went out but the breakfast was well cooked. All in all I would definitely return. Also worth mentioning that the hotel has Mabel parking and is about a five... More

This was our third stay at the Rothay Manor but it has been over 15 years since we were last here - why did we wait so long? We had originally discovered the Hotel through recommendations as a "child - friendly" place when our 2 offspring were still at primary school age and it didn't disappoint then. Now we finally...
