Merewood country hotel lovely little hotel
Small hotel in the heart of the Lake District , the rooms at the front have a wonderful view of lake Windermere absolutely stunning . The hotel is clean and well run , nothing was too much trouble. A comfortable well stocked bar, sitting room & library with nice big comfy armchairs overlooking the lake The breakfast was delicious there was a very varied menu to choose from and also full range of cereals fruit and pastries . . 4 different juices Tea & Coffee . We opted for the full English which was delicious with plenty of toast. . All served by cheerful helpful staff in the lovely grill room that can also be privately hired for small weddings. The bacon and sausage were locally sourced and were lovely and a choice of eggs mushrooms tomatoes black pudding and beans . The room was clean and well laid out but some of the furniture has seen better days and could do with being updated . Bathroom again was clean with lovely big fluffy towels and nice toiletries were provided ,but there were a couple of broken tiles. . The over bath shower was not very powerful and the shower head was a bit floppy. Overall a lovely hotel and really good value for money in this part of the Lake District. I would definitely stay here again
