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.
