We stayed at the Merewood Hotel a couple of nights just before Christmas and really loved the experience. The hotel is nested on top of a hill near Windermere and because of its elevated position, the arrival to the hotel is quite grand. You drive up and up the drive and finally arrive at the hotel which looks beautiful. Once... More

Stayed at this hotel with my husband for a weekend getaway two nights. Impressed with the staffs friendliness and warm welcoming environment throughout our stay but no local knowledge such as recommendation on any great local restaurants. Asked one of the staffs but he couldn't answer. The shower pressure was incredible weak, I couldn't wash my hair with that level... More

In January this year, I spent the night with my mother and grandmother at the Merewood. Having worked in, and being passionate about the service industry for over a decade, I constantly annoy myself with my high expectations and am often left internally disappointed at the service I receive at hotels I eat in and stay at. However…everything about The... More

I just returned a couple of weeks ago from yet another fabulous stay in the incomparable Merewood hotel. I'd spent Christmas here with family, so could scarcely justify another treat just a few weeks after the last but...it's hard to stay away from a place that feels so much like a home from home, but where the food and service...

Check in is very easy but alas no one shows you to your room just find it yourself and take your own bags as well Parking is at the top of a very steep slope and then a walk down a slope and steeps. The bar staff need training in service etiquette and service, there isn't any at this time.... More

The following is a true and accurate description of my stay with my wife from Monday 9th March 2015. Check in easy, no one shows you to your allocated room just follow the hall way. Parking was easy, carry your own bags, I have no problem with that you do at many other types of hotels. At check in were... More

The first issue is that a lot of people have gone to a lot of trouble to take the time to review this hotel but the management have not taken any time to respond, this to my mind is the type of lack of attention to detail that is the root cause of some of the issues I am going... More

Only stayed here one night but would have loved to have stayed longer. Lovely room, spotlessly clean and excellent bathroom. Cosy lounges with beautiful lake views and coal fires. Top quality food beautifully presented. Having dinner here is a lovely way to spend the evening. Canapés and drinks served in the lounges whilst your order is taken and starters prepared.... More

This hotel is very well run. It is spotlessly clean. The food (though too much of it) is excellent. The staff were without fail caring and courteous and helpful. I could not recommend this hotel more highly. The dining room is breathtakingly beautiful with fabulous views. I was lucky to get a lake facing room. IT was not big buit... More
