“Beautiful wedding venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Stayed here and had the reception for my brothers wedding. The staff bent over backwards for us, nothing was too much for them and they were all SO friendly!! The wedding food was mouth watering!!!! I can't emphasise how lovely the staff were. Definitely recommend it for a wedding venue!!

Recently attended a wedding at the Merewood staying one night. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very welcoming, friendly and attentive staff and a lovely country house hotel. Food at the reception was excellent. Room was okay, shower in en suite was poor , though the bathroom was small it was immaculately clean. All in all we enjoyed our stay, upstairs did not quite match the downstairs. Judging solely on the room probably a little overpriced even at the special rate. Overall an enjoyable experience

What a fantastic hotel, full of character and staffed by people who go out of their way to make your stay memorable. We were here for a wedding in September and the food was absolutely fantastic, could find no fault with anything. Word of caution though there is quite a walk from the main car park to the hotel up dozens of steps so if you are not very fit make sure you park in the 'top' car parking area.

Visited for a one night dinner ,bed and breakfast break. Home made chocolates in the room and welcome hot drink and scones all included in a great deal. Staff and service very good. Nice rooms with great views of Windermere lake. Good location for Ambelside and national trust properties including Beatrix Potters Hill Top farm.

Room Tip: Room 1 nice view and great four poster bed.

We stayed here for a family wedding earlier this month and cannot thank you enough for a wonderful experience.We had been so looking forward to the wedding and our trip and all our expectations were exceeded.We arrived to a very warm welcome from Lucy who immediately organised helpers to unpack our car which by this stage closely resembled a traveling circus.Nothing was too much trouble,a really beautiful setting,open fire blazing in the hallway,very clean comfortable rooms,lots of beautiful places to sit and relax or take stunning photos.The wedding was lovely,lots of attention to detail,great organisation,a perfect day for our niece and her husband and for all our family.The food and service were exceptional,staff very helpful and patient,elegant setting of a bygone era made this a very memorable day and worth traveling across the world to experience.Thanks again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a lake view.

Stayed at the merewood on 27th September 2013, we had been once before and had fell in love with the merewood, we were concerned coming back that it wouldn't live up to our expectation and how we remembered it, but the merewood exceed themselves! The food is incredible, service is second to none and the place itself is beautiful, can't grumble about the price either! Can't wait to return!
