Our two days in the Lake District were only enhanced by the experience at Stone Cross Manor. We needed a hotel that was able to accommodate 3 family groups, one with a young baby, one with two small children and a dog, and one couple. Stone Cross Manor managed to have rooms which suited all of us, at an exceedingly... More

We booked this hotel as a stop off through the Lake District and weren't disappointed. The decor is a little tired, but the staff are friendly and the hotel is very clean and comfortable. There is an amazing pool, steam room and jacuzzi on the ground floor, which are as good as any I've encountered in big spas. All in... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was a very pleasant experience. The hotel is in need of a face lift and a touch of tlc, but overall, very enjoyable. Didn't use the facilities, but spoke to several guests who did and they did enjoy the pool, spa etc. Had got a deal on the Stonecross Manor and felt that... More
