The hotel itself is renovating some rooms but we cannot fault the cleanliness of our lake view room( and you really could see the lake). We were on B&B so cannot comment on the evening meals but the breakfasts were excellent, the lasting impression of the hotel was the staff which made our stay so special as I cannot sing...

Good rooms all with en-suite. Great breakfast with lots of choice. Nice bar. The location is between Windermere and Bowness....a little bit of a walk down to the waterfront.....and a little bit more of a walk back up.

We only spent 4 days but it was so relaxing, our room was beautiful, large and a fabulous view over the lovely gardens and a glimpse of Lake Windermere.

We have just returned from a short midweek break at the Craig Manor and we really wished we had booked for a longer stay. We had almost given up on finding a good hotel which also had a good restaurant. The moment we walked through the door we were greeted in by a very friendly and helpful receptionist and the...

We booked this hotel after trawling the internet. What a fantastic choice. The location is fantastic the communal areas are very comfortable the rooms are spotless. And the food is to die for. Breakfast is help yourself and superb. I can't recommend this place enough.

Stayed one night at the end of the Dales Way. Room comfortable and everything we needed was at hand. Very dog friendly. Could eat in the lounge area with our dog. Had a nice evening meal and service was excellent. Breakfast was set up for us in the lounge and nothing was too much trouble, as hotel provided dog bed...

Outstanding views from rear of hotel and an ideal location for Bowness. Breakfast and evening meals were excellent and the staff polite and helpful. The D,B & B rate was good value. However the hotel's public areas and bedrooms are tired and shabby. No 'roaring log fires' on the coldest weekend of the year meant that the lounges were cold...
