The location was lovely with lovely views from the Restaurant, and nice gardens. We went on one of their deals- it was quite expensive but the food was very good. The room was too small really though- there was a suitcase rack in the room but nowhere to open it out! Being vegetarian, I was pleased with the selection menu.

Stayed for 2 night deal on 27/09/17 for my birthday. Slightly dated bedrooms and bathroom, need updated. Meal however, was best ever dining experience due to the wee extra touches and the high quality of food served. Aqua Thermal experience great value for money and great way to unwind for 3 hours. Overall, great experience and would love to go back.

Stayed: September 2017, travelled as a couple

Lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. Staff were very friendly. Food was top notch. We were in the coach house which was perfectly adequate, big bathroom, but some road noise from the A66, but that quietened down overnight. The reception rooms in the hotel are spacious and comfortable and have lovely views across the valley. The spa pool is sumptious.

We had booked into one of the Garden Rooms but when we arrived we were show to room No.6 on the first floor. We were advised that we had been upgraded to a larger room. The room was very spacious with a king sized bed and a lovely sitting area, the only down side was the very small bathroom with dark staining on the wall with the window. We dined in the restaurant on the first night (2 course dinner was included in the package) the food was excellent and we booked again for the following night, again the food was delicious. Unfortunately we booked into the Bistro for the third evening which was a mistake, we should have stayed with the fine dining restaurant. Breakfast was very good with a good choice, not just the full English, good fish dishes and whatever egg you wanted and as many as you wanted. The staff were all very friendly and wanted you to enjoy your stay with them. Will certainly go to this hotel again.

Room Tip: Garden Rooms are on the ground floor with a small patio area, good access to the rest of the hotel.

Brilliant! Many thanks for your review.
We do feel passionately about the hotel & garden spa, and the service our guests receive, its quite personal as we put a lot of time and effort into the hotel to create a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. A hotel is not a hotel without its staff, so it's uplifting for them when they receive praise.
Many thanks for your time in sharing your experience at the Manor.
Its great to hear that you would come back to the manor, we look forward to welcoming you back in the not so distant future.

Many thanks

My husband and I stayed at the Appleby Manor for one night only as it was a wedding gift. I am well travelled and have been to many places and Hotels and spa's but I can honestly say that it was the most memorable experience. The Customer Service is outstanding absolutley outstanding. The warm welcome as we arrived, beautiful smile from every single member of staff. We were shown our room and around the Hotel. It feels like a warm big house where you can be comfortable and just feel at ease.
As we had arrived after lunch they kindly made us some sandwiches which were amazing and we sat in the conservatory which well the views are breathtaking.
I managed to book in a treatment for a facial and a 30 minute back and shoulder massage . The spa staff are just as amazing, warm, friendly and very professional.
( I would recommend you book treatments in advance if you were really wishing to experience the Elemis beauty and relaxation experience )
In the evening we chose to eat in the Bistro as by dinner time we just wanted to pick.
Here again the food is amazing, freshly cooked and served with such elegance and style.
The bistro is more casual the Restaurant is fine dining so those of you that really enjoy fine dining believe me it really is.
We then spent a couple of hours in the bar and again all the staff came to take photo's of us and make sure we were ok. Nothing is a problem.
We slept so well, the room was had our own terrace and garden view of which the view was breathtaking.
Breakfast amazing, service outstanding and we really didn't want to leave.
Again and again we both will definitely return for a whole weekend.
Just would really like to Thank every one at the Manor. This is a really really special place.
Unforgettable and will be returning again.
Thank you....

Room Tip: Room with garden view is beautiful
