We arrived early afternoon. Friendly front of house. Given our instructions with regard to parking in our designated car space. The rooms were out buildings. Quite cozy but with everything you would need.. Clean bathroom and shower, great white comfy towels. Linen again clean white. Bed not so comfy. From our room with could not overlook the lake this would... More

Easy to find via sat Nav but the narrow uneven lanes leave a lot to be desired. Looks great as you drive in to the grounds but be prepared to go back in time when you see your room. Cobwebs and stains on the ceiling. Grubby carpets. Housekeeping very good making room up. Breakfast finishes early and the bar often... More

This place has fabulous grounds. It's well off the beaten track so beware and prepared to drive down very narrow roads. Don't rely on your sat nav to get you there - look for the signs. To call this place a Manor is very misleading. On entering the low ceiling building - it has approx three tables in the small... More

Upon arriving after a 200 mile journey we arrived in the late afternoon at Lakeview Manor to find a basic and dilapidated room, which was situated in one of the ground floor 'out buildings' in the car parking area. After raising our dissatisfaction to the staff regarding the location, quality and cleanliness of the accommodation, we were refused an upgrade... More

Dear Jonathan M We spoke together regarding your dissatisfaction of the room you were allocated on arrival which is not dilapidated in any way whatsoever. You had booked on a Groupon offer costing £169 for three nights in a standard double room including bed & breakfast and a complimentary bottle of house wine to the value of £14.95. At the... More

great position - warm welcome- clean king size bed- new bathroom with decent shower- friendly staff - excellent free Wi-Fi-good breakfasts and very good evening restaurant. Its obvious a lot of money has been invested in the property and is still being invested.

Booked with a friend on a groupon deal. We arrived early afternoon to be greeted by really friendly staff and throughout our stay they could not do enough for us - even put the rest of our wine back in the chiller for the next night. The room we had was behind what I think was the old stable block.... More

My wife and I attended a wedding and reception at Lakeview Manor, and we were very impressed by the courtesy and attentiveness of the staff. The wedding proceeded beautifully and what lovely grounds for the photographs afterwards. This was followed by a very enjoyable meal and drinks in the afternoon. Later in the evening a disco was held and a... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this beautiful hotel. The setting is amazing, the hotel staff so friendly and caring. The breakfasts are superb! We shall most certainly return.
