This is supposedly a 4 Star hotel. I am not quite sure where they keep their four stars but it is most certainly not in customer service. We were treated to a very condescending and protracted check-in procedure, the dining room staff were disinterested and incompetent. The food was of a very mediocre standard. The room (across a yard from the main block) was very snug, drab and unwelcoming, this was despite have the booking made many months in advance. When we commented on this we were dismissed with a disinterested "we are very full". If you enjoy good standard hotels - avoid this one.

This was supposed to be a luxury stop, a country house hotel with a self congratulatory website. The welcome was inauspicious, we struggled in with our suitcases to be told - after a protracted and unnecessarily bureaucratic check in - that we were in the coach house, to take our cases round a corner, down a corridor, through a door, across a courtyard and it was the last door on the left. No offer to help or show the room. The room itself, termed a classic room, was tiny, dingy, dark and airless. There was nowhere to put a suitcase without blocking access. A double had been booked, this was a twin. A window looked out on the road running past the hotel, with a view, on the other side of the road, of violent green panels trying to insulate the hotel from the traffic noise of the adjacent A66 Appleby bypass - without success so the windows couldn’t be opened. An utilitarian shower room had nowhere to place anything. Our request for a move was met by the expected response that they were fully booked. Dinner was not by any stretch an example of fine dining as claimed, service was amateur at best. Breakfast was atrocious, a fruit salad of tinned fruit - it’s summer for goodness sake, fresh fruit available everywhere - inedible scrambled eggs, cardboard toast and dreadful coffee. I complained at checkout but the receptionist was uninterested, there was no sign of the manager. Trip Advisor suggests that most people think it’s great. They certainly didn’t stay in the coach house or have breakfast.

Gin and spa break was lovely. Stayed in a garden room (room 32) and it was really nice with a view to die for. Enjoyed the food in both the restaurant and the bistro and breakfast was good. The free gin cocktail was a refreshing surprise. Please do make time to go to the distillery over near Basinthwaite we had a really informative visit and I treated myself to the new Pink Grapefruit gin. Spa was better than a lot of hotels but only 2 hours on one day wasn’t enough for us two who are spa fans, but it did make us go out and explore the next day so in some ways was a good thing. Would I return? Yes of course. Was it value for money? Not bad and food WAS good in our experience.

The Hotel looks lovely from the outside and you are not disappointed when entering. We arrived about 2.40pm , booking was from 3pm. As we were a little early the receptionist informed us our room was not ready. She showed us through to the conservatory which had lovely views. We went to sit outside as it was such a lovely day. Where we waited and waited for over an hour no one came to inform us our room was ready. I went to reception at 4.15pm where there was now a different receptionist I asked if our room was ready as we had been waiting outside she said it was ! All I can think is the previous receptionist didnt say we where waiting. When we got up to our room it was lovely a fantastic view. It had a large walkin shower. We went down for dinner on our first night in the restaurant 20 minutes early as requested, the bar staff where very good they took our drinks order and we sat in the conservatory which was loving. Our orders where taken for our meal and while we waited to go in the dinning room we where served canopys ,which where lovely. We both had the steak which was cooked to perfection. The service was wonderful. We had a lovely nights sleep ,the bed was so comfortable. The window was open all night but it so peaceful. Breakfast was lovely the food was served by very pleasant staff. Our hot food was piping hot. We went for a walk in to Appleby which was about a 15 minute walk. We had a walk along the river . We went in to the Spa for 2 hours which was so relaxing. There was only 6 other people in there for our last 40 minutes we had the whole Spa to ourselves. Dinner was in the Bistro on our 2nd night ,which was fab. We cant fault the place, except for our delay with our room. This will not deter us from returning to Appleby Manor.

After a disappointing year for everyone we had to obviously change our abroad honeymoon to the UK, this was our last stop. Thinking everything would be great (which some things were) we left feeling a bit deflated. Ladies on reception were fantastic, even our room was lovely, large walk in shower which is a bonus when you're used to a corner one. Very large bed too and comfortable. The views are amazing from the terrace, slight road noise from the A66 but you forget about it after a while. We had high hopes of food when we ordered a sandwich at lunch which was lovely. Especially stating that it is a 2 rossette hotel for food. First evening we ate at the restaurant, I had chicken with a 'fondant' potato which was rather hard. My husband had the steak which I've seen on previous reviews that it wasn't just us with a bad steak. Medium rare which was medium well-done. I had some sort of chicken juice on my food which was all oily (definitely not a gravy or jus). The mackerel starter was nice. 2nd evening we ate at the bistro, bit better, the mac n cheese starter was nice, the patè was very bland. We both had burger and chips which the burgers were nice. Breakfast wasn't much better im afraid, none of the eggs were cooked properly, we had fried and poached. Bacon was nice, so were the sausages but thats about it. Didn't try anything else. We used the Spa for 2 hours and that was lovely, we did come out feeling very relaxed which we were happy about. I know this is a bit of a rant but for the expectations we had and the cost, it really was a bit of a let down. Food being the main thing. We've had better food at a wetherspoons. Sorry 😞
