My husband and I attended a friends wedding at this hotel this weekend, staying two nights and it was fantastic. The staff were just brilliant, so attentive, and they didnt miss a detail. The food was brilliant, the rooms were lovely, it was very clean, well organised, and there was not enough they could do for the Bride and Groom.... More

We had our wedding reception at Merewood and although we didn't stay overnight in the hotel, had a wonderful afternoon and evening there. Lucy was fantastic at arranging everything and keeping me up to date by email with preparations etc and the rest of the staff made the day perfect from beginning to end. The location of the hotel is... More

The only reason I gave 4/5 and not 5/5 is I love the sister hotel Cragwood a bit better.! Merewood has beautiful grounds and within easy walking distance to the centre of Windermere (2.5miles). Lovely bedroom and ensuite would recommend to anyone.

We stayed for our Son"s wedding in April. We loved every minute we were there & nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We highly recommend this hotel and cannot praise them enough. We have visited for Sunday lunch quite a few times & went to the New Year's Eve party & every time it's been wonderful. All the... More

Loved the Merewood with one exception: the "double" bed in our large and beautiful room was too narrow and too short. No doubt a genuine antique but only suitable if a couple is very short and very, very thin (and very friendly, too). I think bed size is one concession to modernity the Merewood could make. The restaurant was excellent... More

Stayed two nights here for a family wedding. From the moment we booked in until leaving it was an absolute pleasure. Lovely building and grounds, so peaceful and quiet. Staff so helpful and friendly. Food of excellent quality. Room 1 excellent and very comfy and clean. Perhaps the bathroom could benefit from a better shower but nothing detracted from an... More

Stayed at the Merewood for a wedding. Everything down to every small detail was brilliant. Food was lovely, staff can't do enough for you rooms and grounds are as beautiful as the location which the hotel is in. Would go back in a blink, without question!

I cannot rate this hotel highly enough. I have visited this hotel several times now and never been disappointed with anything from the reception staff to the hotel room, everything was exceptional. The evening meal in the hotel restaurant was absolutely amazing, it was like eating in a Michelin starred restaurant with amazing flavours and quality of food. The pea... More

Stayed here for a wedding . Couldn't fault anything about this hotel. The staff should be very proud of themselves. They were wonderful with all the young children and even walked the young pageboys down the aisle. Food at the reception was really good as was the service.
