Outstanding views from rear of hotel and an ideal location for Bowness. Breakfast and evening meals were excellent and the staff polite and helpful. The D,B & B rate was good value. However the hotel's public areas and bedrooms are tired and shabby. No 'roaring log fires' on the coldest weekend of the year meant that the lounges were cold...

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the hotel and it didn't let us down. Firstly we would like to praise the staff, especially the waitresses. The same ones served all weekend, what pleasant, helpful and professional girls. Cannot fault them at all. The 4 course evening meals were absolutely fantastic, so beautifully presented and so scrummy!!!! Rooms...

Ok the rooms are small and not 4 star modern quality but what this place lacks in modern perfection it makes up for with oodles of character, good parking spaces with easy walking to Windermere or Bowness on Windermere and lets not forget the pleasant staff to make you feel comfortable.

We usually stay here for the atmosphere at Christmas but there was something amiss this year! The fire was never really Lit in the lounge and the service at the bar was poor! We ended up going out for breakfast the majority of time ( we stayed 3 nights) after trying the breakfast only to find it was self service...

Rooms are simple but lovely, comfortable and very clean! Really liked the fact you could adjust your radiator to suit yourself, was so cosy. Only thing to comment on was the shower- sometimes a little too powerful, shame you could not adjust the pressure as it seemed to increase as the water became hotter. The breakfast is fab, you have...

The good points first. Craig Manor is in an ideal position within walking distance of the shops, the lake and the boats. It also has plenty of parking and the very pleasant restaurant has sympathetic and well groomed waiters who serve food which is a delight in every way. The bad points. Yes you can see the lake but it...

A great 2 day break. A lakeside view in a very comfortable room (206), the shower was great. The level of cleanliness in the hotel is exemplary, no dust anywhere. We ate in the restaurant each night as the food was excellent. Breakfast was plenty to set you up for the day. The staff were all very polite and helpful....
