We booked a 2 night deal and were thoroughly delighted with our stay. The Craig Manor Hotel is situated on the main road between Bowness & Windermere, so easy to walk into either town. The room was spotlessly clean, although décor a little bit tired which did not bother us. The shower took a bit of figuring out, but once... More

Just returned from another great break at the Craig Manor. Excellent location and the hotel once again did not disappoint. The food is outstanding and could not be faulted. As with our last visit the thing that stands out at this hotel is the quality and friendliness of all the staff throughout the hotel.

Well here we are in early Jan 2015, as is always the way, my reviews are honest, sometimes comical, other times a bit naughty. If you don't like any of those, don't read the reviews. Our day starts with a drive in pouring rain to the Lake District, more importantly to the Craig Manor Hotel in Bowness, we don't often... More

We found the hotel warm and welcoming. The staff were friendly and helpful and we had ( as part of a Travelzoo deal ) an evening meal, which we thoroughly enjoyed. So enjoyable that we had a second evening meal. The cooked breakfast was hearty and the choice was excellent. Our room was cosy, with a huge bed and a... More

This was a very short winter break (Travelzoo offer) and our only full day was drizzly but Craig Manor offered a warm and welcoming retreat within walking distance of a surprisingly lively Bowness with Windermere only a little further away in the other direction. Our room was comfortable and clean with a huge bed, a decent bathroom and a useful... More

The Craig Manor hotel is situated on the main road running down from Windermere to Bowness and easily accessible. It has limited views over the Lake from some of the rooms. I stayed in the week between Xmas and New Year and found the room rate quite expensive for one person (they charge by the room) at £130 b&b for... More

After reading reviews about this hotel was not sure what to expect when AMOMA(booking agent) phoned to tell us a month after booking & paying we had been over booked, when I phoned Craig Manor themselves they reassured us our name is still booked however it will be the smallest room in the house and only suitable for one night....

We had stayed here a few years ago, it was better than I remember. The food in the restaurant was excellent. Breakfasts were good. We changed rooms for the second night due to there being no bath in the 1st room. After a long walk made longer by taking a wrong turning a bath was a necessity. We ended up... More
