“Its simplythe best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Does not come any better than this. Food is exceptional in a lovely dinning room. Staff are friendly, attentive and just plain good at what they do. Its not for those who what a lively all singing all dancing place because its not. Its a quiet hotel where peace and quiet prevails and thats what we want when we go. The owners are very friendly who go the extra mile to try and accomodate guests. We have been many times and will be doing so in the future.

I'm not prone to hyperbole but this place is heaven! It is utterly relaxing and stunning value. The staff (including the owner who works as well) are plainly members of a really good team. They are attentive and considerate without ever taking things too far. The food was brilliant and overall I put this hotel into my top three.

Room Tip: Just go and take pot luck.

The combination of comfortable room comfortable beds elegant dining room appetising dinner and generous breakfast virtually guarantee a feel-good stay in Cartmel. Aynsome Manor is managed by a very simpatico attentive and efficient owner. Staff are helpful and charming too. The only drawback on this occasion was (in contrast to our last visit) an extremely poor shower giving little water pressure. This took a little gilt off the gingerbread but we would certainly go back again when travelling in that direction - with pleasure.

We have just returned from a long week-end staying at Aynsome Manor and a visit to Cartmel Races. What a brilliant time we had. We arrived at the Hotel very early but as our room was ready we were made very welcome. The room itself was very comfortably furnished and with a 4 poster bed. The bathroom was well equiped and even though the bath was a 3/4 length it was sufficient for our needs. Everything was exceptionally clean. The Dinner menu was small but wow.....what amazing food, served by very attentive staff. Nothing was too much trouble and we hogged one of the lovely tables in the window for all three nights of our stay. The dining room was a wonderful old room with a most beautiful ceiling. Breakfast was equally as delicious and one thing that pleased my partner more than anything was PROPER toast!! Not just a bit of rubbery bread shown the toaster...but real crispy toast....10/10 to the toast maker!! We walked across the fields to the village which took about 15 minutes. This was great for going to the races as we didn't need to take the car and so could both have a glass of bubbly...or two. A brilliant time was had and a few winners made our day. We could not reccommend this Hotel highly enough, from the wonderful food (complete menu change every day), to the extremely attentive top class staff, great location, superbly relaxing atmosphere and the best toast! Well done to Chris and his team. We will definately be back.

We chose this hotel for a short stay (2 nights because it was 'dog - friendly' & convenient for our booked visit to "L'Enclume restaurant). We certainly had no regrets as we found good quality in all aspects: a warm welcome, excellent service, beautiful surroundings, spacious tastefully fitted room, ample parking and good food. The taxi service to L'Enclume in nearby Cartmel was smoothly organised by Andrea, and David cheerfully waited up for our return at 12.30 am. The attractive village of Cartmel, with its priory and racecourse, is only about a half mile or so away and is well worth a visit (as is Grange Over Sands - 15 minutes drive).
We would definitely stay here again.

A very friendly, comfortable hotel with excellent food and caring staff. We visited 3 years ago, and found it just as welcoming and pleasant as our earlier stay. The countryside is very beautiful, and we came home with some sticky toffee pudding from Cartmel as a reminder of a happy short holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 - 5 face the front, and therefore have the best views.

You could not ask for more helpful and friendly staff. We stayed two nights, eating in one night and at the renowned L'enclume in Cartmel for the second. The taxi for the second meal was efficiently organised by the staff and someone remained on duty until we returned late in the evening. They genuninely enquired about our evening hoping we had enjoyed our meal. The hotel is comfortable and the food good country fare. We shall certainly return. Fantastic value.
