“PERFECT FOUR DAY STAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Fantastic welcome, fantastic service, fantastic room, fantastic location,superb food. We were looking forward to eating out around and about elsewhere during our stay, but there is no point, we would not have found better anywhere else ,the only downside..we go home tomorrow. Will return without doubt. If you get the chance do not hesitate to book Lakeview Manor.....the whole experience has been faultless. Thanks to all the staff who worked so tirelessly to make our holiday what it has been. Rob & Sue

Room Tip: We upgraded to room 21, but they all look good.

A really nice hotel, set in beautiful grounds. Staff friendly and helpful. The room was clean and cosy - my only negative point was that the bed wasn't particularly comfortable and I felt that the mattress could do with replacing. The bathroom was well equipped with a great shower.

We found the food to be outstanding, the evening meal was excellent and particular mention should be given to the beautifully cooked vegetables. Breakfast too was very good, and obviously freshly cooked.

We were able to get a deal through a hotel booking site, which represented very good value and we thought that the restaurant food was very reasonably priced.

We would definitely visit again when in the area.

Down some narrow lanes but what a beautiful place - gardens and lake. Staff very friendly - pleasant atmosphere - drinks in the sun by the lake. Evening meal of steak delicious and beautiful cooked breakfast. Lovely clean room - really quite. Would recommend you stay here - we loved it

Room Tip: All rooms were lovely and quiet.

Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights on the deal cloud offer. It was the most perfect stay we could have wished for. the location was perfect, the staff were amazing, and the room was incredible! there is not one single bad thing i could say about this hotel. We had dinner in the restaurant on the second evening and then had our desserts outside as the weather was so amazing! plenty of options for breakfast and we had a nice few drinks in the bar. We will definatly be back here, it is such a gorgeous place! thank you all very much!

This review relates to the restaurant which serves non residents but couldn't find it under restaurant.
Both visits have been mid-week with only 2 other tables occupied. First time service was very poor but food OK so decided to give it another go 10 months later. Again food good, reasonable selection on both menu and wine list and service during meal much improved. However when served our coffee at 20.15 we were the only ones left in the room so were abandoned and 35 minutes later I had to go out to reception to request a bill.
They also lack the finer touches you would expect in this price band. Eg only offered bread if you have soup for a starter and a mint with the coffee would be nice.

Dear Andrew D
We are pleased that enjoyed your food and were happy with the menu supplied to you and that you had received a better service than on your first visit.
Bread is normally given to all customers not just those having soup, we are sorry if you were overlooked in this instance. After your dinner we generally serve coffee to you, ask if you would like anything further and leave you to chat in peace rather than keep intruding on your conversation, we are sorry if you felt ‘abandoned’.
We hope that this would not put you off using our restaurant and look forward to your return visit in the near future.

Very pleasant stay, we intended eating out but after the first meal we were so impressed that we ate in for the rest of our stay. The food was amazing, and the staff very friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone.My only criticism is why is there no FREE wi-fi
