Overnight with group which produced an excellent dinner, well cooked and served efficiently by friendly staff, a very well appointed and modern bedroom and then a lovely English breakfast ( black pudding so good!!) to make the stay perfect. All the staff we met could not have been more welcoming and friendly and service was of the highest standard.

We had an excellent family meal here the other evening. All the choices were well prepared and presented by the friendly staff. However, based upon the outside appearance and the front bar, I expected the restaurant to have much more atmosphere: as it was, it was a bland, "modernist" large room. A shame when the food and staff were so... More

We've passed this hotel many times but never eaten there until today when we met relatives for lunch. There was plenty of room to park, both the car park and entrance was level which made it easy to handle my wheelchair. By prior arrangement a space had been made for me and my chair at the dining table. The tables... More

We stayed at Crooklands on the way to the Lake District and the Borders. We were greeted by friendly staff and given rooms in the modern part of the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. My only criticism was the bathroom smelled pretty bad which I pointed out to the management- still with the doors closed it was... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in April for one night. The hotel is in a lovely area, not far from the motorway and it didn't take us long to get to Kendal. The room was lovely and we had a great night's sleep. The food in the restaurant was good but a little expensive. Breakfast was included which was... More

Stayed here on a business trip, lovely rooms, friendly staff, very clean and well presented. Food was really good, lovely real ales in the traditional bar. Menu has lots to choose from... Only downside, for a business user it's nice to have wi-fi all over the hotel including the bar so you can have a pint and catch up with... More

We were staying at another hotel but we popped into the Crooklands Restaurant for some food. The food was exceptional and we could not fault the service. The portion sizes are huge too. Would definitely recommend a visit here as you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful stay. On arrival crossed the road and encountered a canal boat on the Lancaster Canal, absolutely charming. Friendly efficient staff providing great service. Good size en suite double with free wi-fi. Plenty of parking and good straight forward English cooking (though more exotic dishes were available). Breakfast was good and again well serviced. Cannot fault it in anyway and... More
