We were lucky enough to get sent here for a week as part of a training programme.
I was in Room 6, in the old part of the hotel, which was a huge room but in need of decoration. Floral wallpaper and an avocado carpet weren't particularly appealing but the beds were comfortable which was the main thing! The bathroom was fairly small, but always clean and had obviously just been refurbished.
The food at Cragwood, and it's sister hotel Merewood, was fantastic. I have allergies and they dealt with this without any fuss whatsoever, providing me with some of the best free-from foods that I've ever tasted. The rest of the group was also kept happy with a wide range of food and we regularly left the dining area feeling stuffed three times a day.
They also had a well stocked bar, but only at well above average prices (£3.80 for any pint). Needless to say, it still got used a fair bit!
The grounds are lovely, extending right down to the lake which I imagine is a sight in the summer. It was under several inches of snow when we were there, picturesque nonetheless.More
