Went to this hotel for my girlfriends birthday. Absolutely loved it. The room (5) was huge and had amazing views overlooking the lake. The food was first class. The staff were warm and friendly and couldnt do enough for you. Cant recommend this hotel highly enough.

We went for a one night stay. The hotel is fantastic and we were in total awe of the hotel and it's grounds. The food was fantastic - totally to die for!! Absolutely loved sitting in the hotel bar relaxing with a beer and a wine. We are looking for the next time we can book and get there.

We had a fabulous Sunday Lunch at the Merewood. We got married at the hotel a few years ago and came back for my Dad's birthday. We'd seen that Merewood had won Lakeland Hotel of the Year last year in a food and drink award - and they fully deserve that. The food was absolutely out of this world! The... More

Booked with Travelzoo voucher and had a wonderful time. We booked too late to get lake view room but our room was adequate. The bedroom was extremely clean and bed very comfortable, hotel staff very professional,friendly and helpful. The hotel is a real gem, log fires, cosy bar, lounge with views across the lake to the mountains beyond, absolute bliss!... More
