Reviewed May 11, 2013

We couldn't have scored a better place for our brief stay in the Lake District. I'm not sure how many rooms the Cedar Manor has but it couldn't be too many, which made staying here a bit like staying at your cousin's house, combined with the facilites and privacy of a hotel room, combined with the food of your favourite restaurant. My partner and I found the whole experience wonderful and we came very close to changing our holiday plans to add an extra night here as a result. Jonathan was a very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating host, our room ("The Windermere Room") was beautiful, and don't bother seeking out a restaurant in town for dinner because the food in the hotel restaurant is first class in both taste and presentation. (Breakfast was excellent too).
Hotel location is a personal preference thing so your mileage may vary, but for us it was convenient to get to, and handy for walking both up to the scenic Orrest Head Viewpoint (definitely worth a visit if you've got decent footwear and conditions aren't too slippery) and down a convenient path to a quiet area of the lake.
Highly recommended.

We stayed here October 2012 and really enjoyed it. Staff were genuinely nice, room was beautiful, location was good, food was high quality but very expensive....breakfast was divine with lots of choice, it is expensive to stay here but worth it.

We had a wonderfully enjoyable stay at Cedar Manor. Caroline and Jonathan, together with their team, did an excellent job and we really appreciated the great service they provided. Our room was very comfortable and cosy, and it was a pleasure to spend our time relaxing in it when the weather proved uncooperative. The food in the restaurant was wonderful, both for dinner and breakfast. We look forward to returning for a visit in the future.

We have just returned from a three day break at the Cedar Manor,what a lovely place. The stay was a birthday gift for my husband , from the friends who joined us at the Manor. We knew it would be good as our friends are regulars at the hotel, but just how good was a nice surprise. The rooms were a very high standard, well appointed and very clean. The bed was so comforable a very big. Our hosts, Jonathan and Caroline are great, nothing is to much trouble, and I am sure even the most demanding customers will be accomadated without question. We have stayed in alot of hotels in Great Britian, the Cedar Manor is by far the best, the food was very good and the menu was a good mix of new and contempory dishes. We will return and enjoy another stay and this first class hotel.

I was taken here as a surprise for my 30th by my boyfriend, and it was wonderful. The hotel is gorgeous, with a cute little bar area and lovely, spacious bedrooms. We ate in the restaurant the first night and the food was to die for! Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us. In a great location with lovely little walks on the doorstep, and just a short drive to longer walks.
Would love to visit again!

Stayed here 2 nights 5 - 7 April 2013
I booked the cosy Claife Heights room - wish I had upgraded as it was a double bed, and we are used to a King - but my fault !
Jonathan and Caroline are amazing hosts, and nothing was too much trouble
We booked for dinner on the Friday , and the meal was amazing! the little extras were very surprising !
Breakfast menu was more than we imagined, so much that we didn't need to eat again until the evening !
A fantastic hotel and hosts - I recommend this hotel to anyone
