After our earlier break we returned on their bridge week to see if the standard could be maintained over five nights. It was! A very relaxing and enjoyable stay-and the bridge organisation equally impressive.

We have just enjoyed a five day stay at Rothay Manor: a repeat visit. The hotel was even better than we remembered. Food outstanding using local fresh produce and exquisitely presented. The staff friendly and pleasant at all times. They do all they can to make the visit good. We stayed in room 14 which is a superior room with... More

A very traditional hotel with a relaxing & peaceful ambience. The staff are very helpful & welcoming. We had a lovely room, the conservatory! which was large & because of the many windows was very light & airy. The bed was extremely comfortable & the bathroom well equipped. We had dinner in the restaurant on both nights & thoroughly enjoyed... More

Arrived early afternoon and... More

We had a wonderful stay in February 2015. From the very beginning the hotel were helpful and bent over backwards to accommodate us. We had our eighteen month old with us and the facilities couldn't have been better for her. High tea for her was superb, she was pampered by the waiting staff and the food was superb. The added...

Saw other reviews of afternoon tea here and were not disappointed. Sharon our friendly host introduced Herself and made us very welcome. It's buffets style and the quality and the variety of sweet and savoury was well beyond my expectations. Would definitely come back and highly recommend trying It over many others on offer in Lake District.
