Eight of us celebrated a diamond wedding anniversary with our parents. We booked through 'Secret Escapes' so we got a good deal on our rooms. Two rooms were in the coach house and two rooms were in the main house. We were all extremely pleased with the two night stay. We had an excellent meal for the anniversary and the staff were very attentive. The quality of the food was excellent and makes my mouth water remembering it! Breakfasts were delicious and set us up for the day.
We had a memorable stay and would highly recommend it. We hope to return again later this year.

I booked this hotel for my boyfriends birthday via an offer through Secret Escapes. This entitled us to a two night stay with breakfast and dinner included on the first night. The hotel was fabulous and the staff were all friendly, polite, helpful, professional...the list could go on! The meal on the first night was divine; the lamb is highly recommended as is the cheese at the end. I would defiantly insist on eating here. The breakfast was also very enjoyable. The only downside is we booked a general room as opposed to the deluxe or garden view and this meant we were outside the actual hotel in an annex. The room was still lovely and very spacious but would of liked to of been in the manor. We also used the leisure facilities which were very clean and relaxing; the pool is only small but warm and clean and everything else was lovely in there. Overall great stay and would recommend to anyone for a weekend break.

Room Tip: Book a deluxe or garden view to avoid being in the annex

Thank you so much for your review of the Manor. Thank you for mentioning our setting and the professional and friendly service you received from our team.
I am so sorry your room was too hot, we have recently installed a biomass boiler resulting in the water being a lot hotter than before, we are adapting to the new system and rectifying the thermostats accordingly.

Hope to welcome you back soon.

Truly a beautiful location and excellent dining experience. Staff were absolutely brilliant and everywhere clean and nicely decorated. Most exciting thou was the electric bikes we hired for a 30 mile cycle ride! Great considering neither of us are particularly good cyclists! Only thing preventing excellent review was room was a little pokey (room 8) and spar area sparse.

Great!! I am so glad you enjoyed the hotel and the electric bikes, They are a new edition to the hotel and really the best way to see the area, there are some fantastic rides from the hotel doorstep. They also have the benefit of taking all the effort out of the really steep hills around us!!
I will pass your comments on to the chefs and front of house team who will be delighted you enjoyed your stay.
Hopefully you will come and visit us again soon.

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel. The food was excelllent and the staff couldn't do enough for you. I wished I had booked one of the garden rooms as they were in a fantastic position. When we arrived a member of staff showed us round the hotel which was a nice touch. We were allocated a room in the annex stableyard which was roomy with a seating area and 2 TV's.
We sometimes had to wait a long time for either drinks or food and when a steak I had ordered turned out to be tough I was given a fresh one very quickly. The pre-dinner ordering system needs speeding up as we ended up having our meal very late when we had booked it for 8pm. We were down in the conservatory at 7.30pm for pre-dinner drink and to choose from the menu but it was 9.pm before we got our first course.
Our overall experience though was very good and we had an enjoyable time.

Room Tip: A garden room for the view and a patio.

I have just spent two nights at Appleby Manor and to be honest after reading some reviews wasn't expecting too much.However,I can say that in my experience they got a lot more right than wrong.The staff were ALL very helpful,polite and attentive even when we asked to change our room on a busy weekend they managed to juggle things around to meet our wishes.
The meals in the dining room on both nights were very good and served with a smile,one or two minor changes to the dishes we asked for were not too much trouble and we enjoyed the entire dining experience.Breakfast, likewise, was very good,piping hot and again the staff were very attentive.The room we stayed in was absolutely spotless with a nice touch of a complimentary bottle of water.
The only slight issue I had was with the bar/pre dining drinks service- it seemed a bit chaotic we had a table booked for 8pm and were finally taken through at 8.45pm, whilst I wasn't that bothered a lot of the other guests were complaining and I felt it caused a bit of an atmosphere.
We recently stayed at another hotel where we were asked to pre-order our food from a menu provided in our room,at first I thought it was a bit odd but it might be worth considering here to
avoid any unpleasantness for the staff who were only doing their best.

The bank holiday week-end that you stayed was very busy, with over 80 dinners between our 2 restaurants. Normally the is no problem unfortunately that week-end many of our guests booked a table for a specific time then did not come down from the room in a timely manner creating a backlog which caused the problem.
We all look forward to welcoming you back in the near future!
