A perfect stay in every way at Cedar Manor in celebration of my friend's 70th birthday. Nothing more could have been asked of Jonathan and Caroline to make our stay more comfortable and welcoming. We loved the cosy comfort of our room and the hotel in general, all refurbished to a tasteful and pleasingly high standard. The restaurant also deserves... More

We visited here for our Saturday evening meal during our weekend break in Ambleside. We wanted something special with great food. The ambience was wonderful. Very romantic and peaceful and rare to find this classic environment with most restaurants turning into modern noisy cafe types. The food was very high standard and the service was exceptional.

The service was excellent and we felt very pampered. Excellent food and great choice on the menu which was a fixed price for 3 courses. We relaxed in the lounge beforehand and to finish with coffee.

Six of us came here for a special occasion,we were pleasantly greeted by our host and made to feel comfortable in the bar before continuing to the restaurant,perusing the menu over an excellent glass of Chardonnay. However we felt that the menu was very restricted and the food was not terribly adventurous,shame.

We have a very wide cross section of guests and do our best to produce delicious food for all tastes. For anyone wishing to... More

Cedar Manor was recommended by our hotel. Our welcome was charming, food was very good, the winelist was very good, and service was excellent. What more can you ask for? My only slightly negative comment would be that most of our party opted for gravadlax followed by rib eye steak. All of which were excellent, but which suggests to me... More

Description
First built in 1854 as a private country retreat and housing an unmissable 200 year old cedar tree in its grounds, tradition and a sense of place are important to both the look and the food at The Cedar Manor Hotel and Restaurant. You will find Cedar Manor offers a seasonally changing a la carte and table dhote menu of classic British food on which all produce is sourced from providers based in the surrounding Lake District. Open to guests and non-residents, one might want to relax with a book in the cosy hotel bar and take in the views of the nearby Lake Windermere before taking a seat in the restaurant which has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes.
