We stayed for three nights in May 2012 to celebrate my retirement. From the moment we walked in the door to when we left the staff were wonderful. Special mention to Danny where nothing was too much trouble. We booked at the Merewood because they accept dogs. They treated "Dusty" as their own giving her treats throughout our stay. We... More

Just returned from 3 nights stay at the Merewood. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home, Great rooms, my elderly in-laws had room 5, massive with 2 double beds, spa bath and a cracking view over the lake. My wife and I had room 6, smaller, not such a good view but very comfy,(we knew... More

On arrival at reception we were welcomed with a real fire and a smiling receptionist. On our 3 night stay the staff were fantastic particularly Danny and Joe who has a good knowledge of the area. The food was like being at Master Chef final every night. All reception rooms were superb and very comfortable. Delightful gardens and views of... More

Nearly every hotel, guest house or B&B around the lakes see young children as a problem, and so often landlords and ladies refuse to accommodate very young families. Not here. Rather than turning a snobbish nose up at our three- and two- year old, the warm and welcoming staff took both boys for a tour of the grand dining and... More

We recently stayed at the merewood as I booked it as a surprise night away for me and my husband as a small honeymoon break! When we first arrived I admit I was alittle disappointed with the room we were given as it wasnt very light and quite small (room 6) However after I went to reception and asked if... More

Hotel staff were all helpful and polite and made our stay very pleasant. The room we had was one of the suites and was very comfortable although it was hard to see the TV from the bed as it was on a shelf in the wall. We had the dinner option and it was probably one of the best meals... More

We stayed at Merewood at the beginning of March for a last getaway before the birth of our first child. The room was lovely and spotless (we had a four poster bed which was a wonderful touch) with magnificent view. The staff were wonderfully attentive and friendly. It is in the style of an old country house complete with library... More

My wife & I only stayed 1 night at the Merewood in March, however, I feel that we got a pretty good flavour of the place during our stay. The location is pretty impressive - between Windermere & Ambleside, with lovely views over the Lake. On arrival, Staff were particularly welcoming & helpful & remained so during our stay. The...

Over 3 weeks, stayed 7 times. What can I say about Merewood that has not been said before, The staff were amazing, could not do enough & because I had to start early, they even got the staff in half an hour early to get breakfast ready. The rooms are faultless & kept to a high standard. The food was... More
