Stayed here for one night courtesy of my girlfriend who booked it for the two of us. The grounds were fantastic and Appleby itself just a 10 minute walk away. A drive to the Lakes ( Ullswater only took 30 mins) We stayed on the top floor room was very spacious and comfortable only let down was the view (...

We stayed on the ground floor overlooking a terrace and nine hole putting green, room was tastefully decorated with en suite bathroom and lots of space in the room. French doors opened onto the terrace. Excellent food with brilliant service and staff. Very varied menu and breakfast was taken to order and served - always fresh and piping hot. Great...

Man on reception showed us round the hotel on arrival. Booked to stay in a deluxe room. Lovely room but window straight onto where builders were working on the new spa.

Had a lovely time. Wonderful food and very good service. Very disappointed with the garden room. The furniture not at all in keeping with age of the rest of the hotel, very cheap and nasty looking and the bed most uncomfortable. We have stayed here before but never in a garden view room and would not choose the same again.

We have just enjoyed another short break at Appleby manor. Staff were very welcoming, friendly yet professional. Again we had a Garden Room, very spacious and comfortable with beautiful views over the grounds and The Eden Valley. The room was excellently maintained and well appointed. The only minor problem was the occasional intrusion of heavy footsteps from the room above.
