Beautifully furnished, delightful staff and access to a lovely spa close by. Arrived tired and jaded, left refreshed and chilled out. Very extensive DVD library available and a most helpful list of restaurants recommended available in the room. Oh and a teddy. What else could you want?

A lovely stay at this B&B. Gorgeous room, fabulous breakfasts with plenty of choice. Friendly staff, could not fault at all. Great location for everything in Bowness. Everything top notch at this place without being pretentious. Have stayed many places in Bowness, this is my favourite by far, would highly recommend x

The Cranleigh is a quaint hotel in the heart of Windermere - it's extremely well located to a number of great restaurants and sights in the area. The rooms were smaller than average but extremely comfortable and very well appointed. Our particular room had only a bathtub which made quick showers inconvenient, but there are other rooms that have walk-in... More

This is our third return visit, having stayed previously in room 2, The Escape Suite, and most recently room 10 which had been refurbished into a suite with its own private entrance.

We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed this hotel. It has been refurbished to a very high standard. The room was spotless, modern and relaxing. The staff are great, very polite, helpful and professional. The cruise tickets included in our package were a nice touch and the breakfast provided is great! We will definitely return.

I upgraded to room 10 from luxury room 16 as a surprise for husbands 50th. I wish we hadn't, the room was much smaller than we thought, very warm and the bathroom was tiny. It was lovely and had it's own balcony, but this had no view. We felt we would have enjoyed a less expensive room and sat out... More

well, where do we start!........ We've been regular visitors to the Cranleigh since first stopping at their 'Escape Suite' earlier in the year. It really does set the standard for Lakes accommodation - from the moment you check in.
