Stayed at the hotel for a few nights and got married here. The hotel and the grounds are just stunning and the views from the hotel are amazing. The food was at a truly high standard and some of the best I have tasted and I measure that against some of the so called top restaurants in London. The staff... More

This is a wonderful hotel. The location is easy to get to (and perfectly situated as a base to explore the Lakes) and yet, as soon as you enter the hotel and its grounds, you feel miles away from anything. The grounds are extensive, lush and varied and the views from the terrace are magnificent. Inside, the hotel itself is... More

We went to Cragwood to babysit for our daughter who was attending a friend's wedding. The room was comfortable, modern and lean and with a huge bed, which delivered a good night's sleep. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. We watched the preparation for the wedding which seemed well organised. The siting of the ceremony itself, outside, was... More

Truly magical and I would recommend the hotel to anybody wishing for a small intimate wedding with the most spectacular views of the Lake for photographing the special day. I... More

We made a last minute booking here. Location lovely, wonderful 4 poster room. Good value for money in the room we got overlooking the lake. I would however, not have wanted to pay £120 for a room at the back of the hotel. We wanted dinner, but they could not serve us. Breakfast was also confused. I left with the... More

We then went and explored the grounds which again was absolutely wonderful. Just us package involves a 2 night stay with 4 course dinner both evenings.... More

Spent 3 nights at this hotel and give it a full 5 stars! The hotel itself is full of character and olde world charm however the rooms are very modern and beautifully decorated but very in keeping with the rest of the hotel. Breakfast was excellent and the views are outstanding. The gardens are wonderful to walk around early in... More

A group of us stayed for 3 nights, to play golf at Windermere and to revisit some Lake District sites and walks. This hotel is an extended fine old house in beautiful grounds on the shores of the lake. The location is central to the main Lakeland areas. The service is friendly and excellent. The food is truly wonderful, especially... More
