We have stayed at the Merewood before and it has always been excellent. Can't recommend this Hotel enough. The view from the Bar is wonderful as is the food. The Staff are very well trained and nothing is too much trouble. £8 into Bowness by Taxi gives you the best of both worlds. The quiet of the Hotel grounds and... More

Recently attended a friend's wedding at the Merewood and loved it from start until finish. The hotel itself is beautiful and the grounds are well worth exploring. The staff could not have been any more helpful or professional and the food was the best I have tasted in a long time...the chicken main was fabulous!!! Loved it, we hope to... More

We had a truly wonderful lunch to celebrate a family birthday. The staff were friendly and professional. The setting overlooking the lake was stunning. The food was amazing, rounded off with coffee and chocolates by the open fire. We felt well and truly spoilt. We will be back :-)

Fantastic hotel. Staff inside and out were excellent and so friendly. Lovely setting and atmosphere. Nice to be in a building that felt like a home and not just a standard hotel. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. Lived on it for the rest of the day! Well done to everyone involved.

We had only a one night stay. We went there knowing there was only one room left (8) and so obviously not going to be the best. It was nevertheless perfectly acceptable, comfortable and quiet.

We visited the Merewood under the Living Social scheme. Under this scheme you have got to say that it is a "snip". The hotel has not got a swimming pool or gym, however, if you want a quiet break, it cannot be beaten. In an elevated position you have glorious views of Windermere and beyond. We did not stay for...

For a £69 B and B deal this was good value. Highlights were the views over the lake from 4 public rooms and the ambience inside. The hotel was clean and the staff were welcoming and friendly. So a comparatively low score for waiting 15 minutes for coffee at breakfast and 45 minutes for the rather average cooked breakfast to... More
