We came here for afternoon tea on a Sunday in March. We'd been in the Lake District for a mini-break elsewhere, and booked our afternoon tea in advance to precede our journey home. On arrival, we were offered a choice of two rooms to be seated in - the drawing room or the bar-lounge - and our coats were taken....

It was our wedding anniversary, so we tried to find somewhere a little up-market., and we certainly found a truly wonderful place.From the moment we entered, the staff could not do enough for us and to say that the food was good is a gross understatement.The fine dining experience deserves a Michelin Star and not two rosettes, as every course...

Our second stay at Rothay Manor was a generous gift from friends. On the edge of town the hotel is a pleasant oasis, friendly greetings on arrival and nothing was too much trouble. Dinner was good but not quite the gourmet treat expected, the breakfast excellent. The wine list is good and sensibly priced and the barmans gin & tonic...

Stayed one night using a deal from Travelzoo, and were absolutely delighted with every aspect of our stay. We have booked similar offers with Groupon and Living Social and whilst satisfied with them, they have been undoubtedly surpassed here. On arrival we were greeted enthusiastically and shown to our room - The Conservatory. If this is their base room for...

There are very few places open in Ambleside on a Monday evening! Restauranteurs take note! 'Driven' to the Rothay Manor as it did happen to be open, my birthday boy and I had the most surprisingly wonderful dining adventure. From the beginning to the end of the meal we had the best culinary experience - one of the best ever...

We have visited this hotel many times. It changed hands recently as the owners retired. This was our second visit since the new ownership. The entrance hall, reception area have been updated in a very attractive manner without spoiling the character of the hotel. The hotel offers fine dining at dinner time which is of the highest quality but the...
