“Lazy weekend in the lakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Friendly staff, interesting, quirky but very cozy and comfortable hotel with good food in a scenic location. We loved the four poster room with its stunning views. Worth a visit, or call in for evening dinner which is excellent value at£30per person for canapés, 3course meal, coffee and petit fours. Only downside was the wifi was patchy. The full size snooker table was fun too.

Stayed January 2013, traveled as a couple

Argh - those pesky mountains and thick walls - so sorry Dave about the wifi - some days its good and some not so good. We are working on boosting it again, and trying a satellite beam from a nearby location that is literally on top of the exchange. it will be much better on your next visit !
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and the rest that the Manor has to offer despite the wifi! Thank you for taking the time to share your visit ! please be well and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Best Regards, Cherin & Kim

Having turned up at our booked accomodation in Keswick to find it had no heating we went to the Ravenstone Manor as we had stayed there earlier in the year - they told us about their self-catering flat and we had the most marvellous week there - nothing was too much trouble for the four owners who are now friends. We finished off our week by taking advantage of the subsidised evening meal in the hotel. Would recommend this to any couples and we will be going back if only for the fantastic shower and whirlpool bath!!!

I persuaded my family (my husband, myself, my mother and our two adult sons) to spend New Year's Eve away from home this year. As soon as we had arrived they agreed that it was the right decision!
We were greeted by Adam and shown to our rooms, which were warm, cosy and comfortable with lovely new en suite bathrooms and beautiful views of the lake.
The food was fantastic and VERY plentiful with a great choice and something to suit all tastes with games and champagne on the house on New Years Eve. Adam, Cherin, Kim and Tina joined in the fun and throughout the weekend were very welcoming and made us all feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them.
Adam, Cherin, Kim and Tina really made stay memorable and we are looking forward to visiting them again next New Year. We would thoroughly recommend Ravenstone Manor to everyone.

We had 2 nights in this lovely hotel, including dinner on both evenings.
The food was first rate, and the management friendly and attentive. Log fire, plenty of games, and a drink on the house!
I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

Spent three nights at Ravenstone between Christmas and New Year to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
Tina and Charin really pulled out all the stops to ensure our time there was memorable, nothing was too much bother for them.
The food was excellent with plenty of choice, and good size helpings. They had my favorite beer on tap, and a good whisky selection. So with good food, good drink, lovely company, and help to organise a special anniversary, we really couldn't ask for more.
Well done to all, and thank you.

We recently stayed at Ravenstone Manor for 2 nights over The New Year, taking in their New Year's dinner party.
There were 4 of us in our party and we cannot praise the hotel and staff too highly. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble for them. The food was excellent, and plenty of it as well.
Our rooms were clean, tidy and well stocked.
The owners of this hotel just seem to go the extra mile for their guests.

We slipped away for a pre Christmas jolly in the Lakes on a livingsocial deal, and were completely bowled over by the amazing welcome we were given by the staff, and the wonderful food we ate! We will be recommending this hotel to all our friends and will definitely return soon!

Thank you so much for such a great review! We are so pleased that we have exceeded your expectations! One of the goals for offering the Living Social package was to introduce Ravenstone Manor and the beauty of the Northern Lakes to guests who may not have ventured to our part of the Lake District otherwise. Your kind words confirm that we achieved our goal. Thank you again for taking the time to share your visit. We look forward to seeing you again very soon.

Best Regards,
