I stay here regularly for business, but have also stayed with my wife. The hotel is ideally situated, just of the M6 if travelling to / from Scotland. Ideal for the South Lakes, Yorkshire Dales etc. Staff very friendly, food great, comfortable rooms and all at good value price. Recommended.

Another most enjoyable visit to Crooklands. As usual we experienced friendly and professional service from all staff encountered, especially Janet and Gemma working hard in the restaurant. What more can one say?

Went for a romantic weekend Friday through Sunday. The setting was excellent with convenient parking and breathtaking views for walks and drives. Sadly the mattress was very uncomfortable, too floppy. When we complained they put some planks of wood under the mattress to make it firmer. Not much better😳. Breakfast was okay and nothing to sing and dance about. Traditional... More

Back again for more of the same! We need comfort; cleanliness; great location; brilliant food; efficient friendly conscientious staff, and Crooklands ticks all of our boxes. Mine hosts, Charles and June, are quietly becoming less conspicuous and are leaving the daily running of the hotel to daughter Gemma. The transition is working fairly well, but the 'personal' touch has now... More

I booked into Crooklands last night for one night alone as a way of avoiding a long journey on the morning of the shoot I was to be at the following day. Having read so many of the negative reviews I had no expectation beyond a clean room and a restful night; the reality was an extremely comfortable and newly... More

Nestled close to Junct 36 just off the M6 on the main road into Kendal, yet in rural surroundings, this is a little gem of a hotel, oozing comfort and relaxation. This is our third stay on New Years Eve and once again nothing to disappoint, the welcome is always warm, the food excellent, a nice way to see the... More

I've not stayed here, but I have eaten in the restaurant. The food and service were very good and the public rooms are comfortable and inviting. Crooklands is set in a lovely rural location, close to Jn 36 of the M6 and on the main road into Kendal.

Can't quite put my finger on what is lacking here. Food is good, love the steak and mushroom pudding. But the staff just seem to lack a bit of professionalism ! Whether it's taking your order or clearing spare cutlery it's all a bit rough and ready. Friendly yes, but a bit of finesse would transform the place. We wanted... More

Popped in for an evening meal, did not book, enjoyed their roast dinner & sweet - very tasty and friendly staff too. Would have booked a room there if we were not staying somewhere else. Seemed busy in the restaurant & bar area.
