My husband and I stayed at The Cranleigh for a special weekend away together in the Lakes. We have stayed at many nice hotels, including Gilpin Lodge which isn't too far away, but unfortunately we felt that The Cranleigh didn't quite manage to come across as a boutique hotel. On first arriving, I was blown away by the lovely smell... More

Now don't get me wrong by the title of this review, this guest house is in our favourite hotels list now, having just stayed there this past weekend and the quality of the fittings and fixtures in the sanctuary room is very impressive. So the Good (VERY) points: - Really pleasant helpful staff throughout, from our welcome through to the... More

I've been wanting to stay at the Cranleigh for some time now and I got my chance last week. My partner and I had booked 2 nights in the Escape suite. We arrived and were welcomed by the lovely Michaela - she showed us to the suite and gave us instructions as to how everything worked. The layout of the... More

I have stayed at the Cranleigh before and due to that it is a victim of its own hype. It has no personality and does not meet the constant bombardment of emails telling us how great it is. We enjoyed our first stay last year and really had nothing to complain about, decor is down to personal taste so how... More

We first visited the Cranleigh in 2012 and have just returned from our 6th stay. Once again a wonderful 3 day break. The room, staff, breakfast and service, as usual, were faultless. To top it all the weather was fantastic. Thanks to everyone at the Cranleigh for another totally relaxing break in the lovely Bowness in Windermere. We will be... More

Fully teched out withe the ipad on the wall controlling well - everything it seemed - and ipad docks in the rooms. The TVs have execllent stock of blue-ray dvds and the hot... More

Stayed here and whilst the rooms are delightful and by far the best I have stayed in they are very expensive for what they are. Lovely hot tub in bathroom though with a tv to watch also. Brilliant location a five minute stroll to lake windermere and the centre of bowness on windermere.

Just returned from a two night stay for a quick honeymoon break. We stayed in Luxury room 6 which is at the front of the hotel and is very quiet. The hotel lived up to our expectations but I would add that whilst the room was very well done, it was quite a bit smaller than I was expecting and... More
