Stayed here for the weekend, as part of a group of friends going to Cartmel races. The receptionist was abrupt on arrival, claiming the room was not ready at 13:30 and wouldnt be until 15:00 at the earliest. The staff also kept going missing from the bar area, and closed the bar, as soon as it was 23:00. Overall, the... More

Craig Manor is well placed for visiting the Lake District and reasonably well located in Bowness to nearby restaraunts and pubs. The hotel is dated in decor, the armchairs in the lounge overlooking the lake certainly need replacing or would benefit from a good clean, they were dirty. We had a room on the third floor, effectively the attic, the... More

Unfortunately our stay coincided with a large coach group.... They arrived late in the evening and were very noisy...with shouting and banging of doors late into the night and also early morning. We arrived on Sunday 14th August.... At breakfast staff I think we're a bit abrupt as we were a family of 5 they thought we were part of... More

Our first short visit to the Lake District. We found the hotel comfortable and ideally situated on the outskirts of the town but within easy walking distance to the main activities. Our room, at the rear of the hotel overlooking the lake through the trees, was small, but adequate, with coffee and tea making facilities, which we appreciated. The en-suite... More

When we arrived at Craig Manor, we were excited to be staying in this lovely old hotel. Unfortunately, when we found our room, we were taken aback at the very small size. There was a sign in the bathroom about putting towels on the rack if you wanted to keep them for the next day - we didn't have to... More

Short stay visit - ideal location for walking around Lake Windermere, boat trips or shopping. Hotel situated short walk from main shops. Our room was lake view - looking out over fields and mountains in far background. Quick Note: Bowness gets very busy at this time of year with many foreign tourists. Accommodation was basic and needs to be updated... More

The Craig Manor Hotel is a lovely traditional hotel which looks out over Lake Windermere and I was fortunate enough to wake up to these beautiful views every morning as I had a lakeside facing room. The staff are very friendly both in reception and in the dining room where every morning breakfast is served which includes a wide range... More

Great staff - nothing was too much trouble, and all were really friendly. Rooms a little dated, but you can live with this when staff are so welcoming and helpful. Comfortable beds. Food was very good for a three star hotel, and presented really well. Would stay again.

Although our room wasn't the best as booked last minute and would go for a nicer one next time. It certainly made up for it by he excellent evening meals we had. The choice as amazing and so was the presentation. Also the chef would make you something different if there was something else you wanted. Will definitely return.
