My hubby and I stayed here on Sat night after our trip to cartmel Races. I emailed ahead to say we needed late checkin and to reserve a table for dinner at 6.30pm. They emailed me back immediately to confirm. I like a quick response, show they care. We checked in quickly and easily and we had room 208. We... More

Craig Manor is a beautiful hotel, rooms are excellent with comfy beds and nice decor. The garden are is stunning. The bar and seating area are lush and really relaxing. The location is really great, away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Bowness, but just a pleasant 5 or 10 minutes stroll to the centre. The staff... More

On arrival I was advised that internet was "better in the Bar and Lounge area". In fact that was the only location where internet access was available. My room was tiny. A squeeze around the bed to move anywhere, but the "bathroom" was even worse. Shower, toilet and basin in three corners, touching. The door cut off the basin, and... More

Staff are mostly friendly and the location is good and food is ok if your expectations are not too high. The room I had (101), however, was small, sparce and very very dated. Although clean it looked looked it was last decorated about 20 years ago, furnishing bought from a flea market and a tv picked up from a skip.... More

This is a very good restaurant within the hotel. We found that food was served hot, tasted very good, with a good selection. We would go there again, and we would certainly stay ,as we found it to be exceptional. The bar was comfortable and we enjoyed the quietness of it. There was ample parking for guests and those that... More

I chose the Craig Manor for its dog friendly policy. The welcome was warm and the staff helpful, however we arrived an hour too early to check in so left the car at the hotel and walked down to the lake where we took a cruise. Although small for two adults and two large dogs, the room was clean and... More

We have stayed here on a few occasions now and have always enjoyed our stay although only on a bed and breakfast basis as we enjoy trying different restaurant's this hotel is ideally situated in the middle of Bowness and Windermere just a short walk to both. The hotel has not changed in the years we have been traditionally decorated... More

Visited Craig Manor again at the end of April, a little early in the year for us. Don't know if it was because we were return customers or they weren't very busy but our rooms (myself and hubby and m-i-law) were upgraded to Lake View ones, as the trees hadn't got too much foliage on we had a lovely view...
