The owners of this hotel made the hotel what it is. Brilliant hotel restaurant for dining at night and for breakfast. Lovely staff. The rooms are delightful and gorgeous. Right near the centre of windermere. Downside is it is a bit of a walk to bowness on windermere where the boats and lake are.

Couldn't be any more happier with service and experience we received at cedar manor hotel. On our arrival, we were greeted firstly by the managers friendly daughter and their new puppy basil. We were then greeted by a very friendly member of staff called Patricia who proceeded to give us a tour of the hotel before bringing us to our... More

A wonderful place to stay. Truly hospitable hosts, excellent cuisine, and superb wine list. It felt like a home from home. We stayed in Windermere which overlooked the front garden and drive; it has a large bathroom, and is a large room - very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing. The hotel is also sensible in showing both half board and room... More

Cedar Manor Hotel is just outside the town of Windermere, within easy strolling distance. We had a warm welcome from the owner who was generally helpful without being intrusive. This is an old house which has been updated and converted to provide 10 bedrooms which are well equipped. Our room had a comfortable king size bed and a spa-bath which... More

Not only was the hotel comfortable and cozy, but it had two of the most hospitable innkeeper assistants around! Both Dorothy and Patricia were warm and friendly, and helpful in suggesting places to visit and dine. Cedar Manor sits on lovely grounds, was easy to access, and convenient to hailing a bus to get to wonderful day hikes. We recommend... More

I would like to say that the review below where they criticise the owners, they are talking rubbish! Jonathan and Caroline are the most accommodating hosts who would do anything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Someone who takes pride in the appearance of their hotel /business is a place I want to stay. I've just spent 3... More

Went to dinner at the lovely Cedar Manor last evening. Was greeted by a gentleman who offered us seating in the finely decorated living room. He arranged for drinks and nibbles. We were escorted to the dining room by the sweet young server. I had a summer salad and the lamb, delicious and cooked to perfection. My wife had the... More

Dear traveller, my intention is not to put you off choosing this hotel for your stay in Windermere, it is simply meant to be a warning / FYI. There were a lot of boxes this hotel ticked: convenient location, lovely exterior, individually decorated rooms (though slightly on the small / crammed side) and really lovely staff in the breakfast room....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cedar Manor Hotel & Restaurant is located on the outskirts of Windermere in the heart of the Lake District. Built in 1854 as a private country house retreat, the hotel now provides luxurious accommodation and a fantastic restaurant featuring the best local produce, with a seasonally changing menu. An ideal base for those wishing to relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery, wonderful walks and wealth of leisure facilities Windermere and the Lake District National Park have to offer. Set in mature walled gardens dominated by the ancient cedar tree, the hotel feels peaceful and secluded, yet is just a short stroll away from the shores of Lake Windermere and the centre of Windermere village. ... more   less
