Our daughter had her wedding reception at the Merewood in May and without doubt this was one of those occasions to remember forever. The team at the Merewood worked tirelessly over the 48hours we were there and special thanks must go to Adam amd Helen. The organisation was flawless from the friday night, the meal at the wedding breakfast was... More

From booking the merewood in September 2013 for our daughters wedding on Saturday 23 May 2015 nothing was too much trouble. We wanted a choice of menu and dessert and we got it. We paid for exclusivity from the Friday 2pm to Sunday 11am and it was well worth the money. Lorna the general manager and her team including Adam... More

Just returned from a 4 night break at Merewood. Everything was great, staff, food, position...... Can't work out how they provide such excellence at such affordable rates. Next time we'll try to book earlier to get a lake view.

We did not stay here but had spent a day travelling the beautiful Lakes District and in search of a meal. Wishing to avoid the crowds of the popular towns we turned off the main road to be treated like long lost family!! Gorgeous lake view setting quiet and with stunning gardens ... We were too early for dinner but... More

I've just returned from a mid-week overnight deal at the Merewood and I cannot praise the hotel enough. It is a traditional hotel, but is very relaxed, very comfortable and excellently maintained. The room was spotlessly clean. Another plus for me is that the hotel is dog friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they set me... More

Can't see how we pay per person per room and not the room itself. Shower was temperamental as regards temperature. These are the only downers on what was a fantastic weekend. Staff and service were first class. Quiet venue with reasonable view over Windermere. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Nice and peaceful wedding location

It is not often that we stay somewhere where everything about the stay is perfect, but at this hotel everything was just perfect for our stay. The hotel is ultra clean, the staff are friendly and well trained and managed. The bedrooms are comfortable, and the food is well balanced. It is not a boutique luxurious hotel if you are... More
