We stopped as a part of a two night package, which included dinner on the first night. There are a lot of these packages available online and they are very good value. The hotel is lovely, albeit a little dated in some areas. The room we had was lovely though, big and airy with a brand new en-suite shower room. Dinner was very good. The food was delicious and beautifully presented.I would though have had an issue paying full price for the meal if it wasn’t included in the package. Starters were around £12 and mains were £25. The hotel is in lovely grounds although isolated from any local pubs and restaurants. Although you can walk to Appleby in about 20 minutes, the roads are without pavements. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

We stayed at Appleby Manor Hotel with my elderly parents for a two night midweek break. As my parents are in their 90s it was important to ensure certain needs were in place. We booked a garden room for them and when we’d arrived the receptionist was attentive and considerate. This level of care continued for all of our stay. Everything we had asked for my parents was done without fuss with cheerfulness and kindness. It was a perfect place for them with twin ground floor room, walk-in shower, comfortable lounges and conservatory and that all important perfect cup of tea. Many thanks for helping us give my parents a lovely little holiday!

This is the third time I have visited Appleby Manor, the second of which was only a few months ago. This place is wonderful in every way. I cannot even begin to express how much I love it and how happy it makes me to return. Every time I bring someone new they fall just as in love and agree that there is something truly magical about the place and the people who run it. On this visit we stayed in Room 9 which was beautiful. There was a large bay window, tasteful decor and the most comfortable bed known to man. We agreed that if we stayed in bed all day, the money would still have been worth it. It goes without saying that the spa is excellent. It’s absolutely the best spa I have ever visited. The food in the restaurant is divine, particularly the cauliflower starter which goes down as the most incredible starter in the country! The main reason that this hotel is as wonderful as it is however is down to the staff. For this reason, I need to give a special mention to the following individuals for making our stay so amazing: Megan- Megan was such a ray of light and greeted us with a smile and a chat every time we danced past reception. She was just so bubbly, and it was such a joy coming back to her smiling face after a day in the mountains. Karl- Karl looked after me last time I visited with my sister and was even more brilliant this time around. He always kept us laughing and our drinks topped up. He is a lovely guy who is great at his job and it was a pleasure chatting to him at dinner. Chelsea- Chelsea just got us as soon as we entered the restaurant. She was light-hearted and funny and we knew we could count on her for a bit of cheeky banter. Jackie- Jackie was so sweet and made our breakfasts calming and enjoyable. She was diligent with all our requests and made us feel like no request was ever too much. She was always happy to engage with us to give us ideas on how to spend the day. Sarah- Sarah was equally as lovely and kind. It was like having a warm morning cuddle every time she seated us for breakfast. Teri-Anne- Teri-Anne was very helpful to us in the spa and talked us through a range of Elemis products and how to get maximum use from our time in the spa. She was really lovely. Angela- Angela is a wonderful individual who has created an incredible establishment. She was unbelievably helpful and went out of her way to provide us with suggestions for days out. It was always fun catching up with her and she quickly made us feel like part of the family. Our favourite part was the big hug we got at checkout and the promise of another visit in the near future. All in all, I cannot recommend this hotel enough. I hope I have the pleasure of staying there for many more years to come.

Recently stayed for 3 days with work. Ate in the bistro every night and the food was bang on. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Room was clean and tidy, but as it was top floor a bit warm, asked for a fan and was supplied with one, so not an issue. Would recommend to anyone. I will be using again.
