The hotel is only 3 star but the claim of lake view should read very slight lake view through the trees. The decor is very tired and out of date. In the ladies toilets there is a dried flower arrangement that was dirty and faded. Not very hygienic. There are soap dispensers in the bathroom and no creams. Worth noting.... More

We stayed for 3 nights Dinner Bed and Breakfast and had a lovely time. Each meal was delicious and the staff were all lovely and helpful. We had a lake view room and it was lovely. The hotel is ideally situated between Windermere and Bowness with great parking. A very peaceful and relaxing break. We will definitely return.

We stayed at this hotel for the first time 3 years ago, so when we were looking to get away for a few days we decided we would return to Craig Manor. We chose this hotel again because it is central to either Bowness or Windermere. The parking is also excellent. We stayed for three nights on bed and breakfast... More

We had 2 lake facing rooms. Our children's larger room as they had to put extra bed in. Our room was noisy due large space around door and other rooms very close and couple with dogs in one room opposite. Our children's room very good. Main front desk and bar service was average although always friendly. Breakfast was very good... More

Arrived at Bowness later than anticipated and with little choice of accomodation. Ended up with a room on the ground floor overlooking the road. There is no air conditioning and being unable to leave the window open it was uncomfortable to sleep. The double bed mattress is definately past its use by date with the edges collapsing if you turned... More

The Lake District is very beautiful almost picture post card type. Craig manor is an old manor house converted into hotel. With lovely view of the lake from dining and sitting area. It had lovely garden at the back where you can relax with a glass of chilled beer. Well the rooms are not small but tiny. You struggle with... More

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

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

We visited this hotel with family and 2 dogs, the rooms were clean, staff very friendly and helpful, plenty of areas in the evening to sit and chill out with the dogs, restaurant food amazing, we were dinner, bed and breakfast for 5 days and as a catering manager was very impressed with every meal, the presentation, service, and organisation...
