Good 6.0
Wouldn’t go back
We had been on a small tour of England and Scotland, as this was our last stop we thought that we would treat ourselves to the most expensive hotel we had stayed at. Unfortunately if you don’t have their 5 course meal you cannot eat in the restaurant only have bar meals which actually come from a 3 course menu, you can only eat these off coffee tables in the bar or adjacent rooms. The meal that we ordered was wrongly served even after checking with the bar staff who insisted that it would be correct. This spoilt what had been a fantastic tour instead of the perfect ending we were hoping for.

Idyllic stay
Cragwood is a beautiful hotel on the shore of Lake Windermere. My friends and I loved everything about our stay, from the friendly welcome to the beautiful room and the exceptional views from the hotel. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a beautiful and relaxing countryside retreat.

Fair 4.0
Ok stay at tired lodge hotel in stunning grounds.
We booked this hotel having stayed with family at the sister hotel Merewood. Firstly the grounds and location is stunning. However, the house itself was undergoing renovation of the river view rooms. and the actual look of the hotel inside was less grand lodge or 'stately home' like and more old peoples home. I don't know the extent of the renovations but I hope they are doing the whole building. They are scheduled to end by April.We paid a lot of money comparatively to other similar places for a room with no breakfast included. The room was fine, not particularly special and the fact it only had two tea bags included was kind of poor and felt a bit rubbish. As someone who travels relentlessly around Europe for work and stays in innumerable good hotels, details are important an down one really wants to be phoning down for extra tea. Games such as scrabble and cards were apparently locked away in a lounge being renovated which was disappointing as my wife and I like to sit and relax and play cards with a drink when we come away and leave the kids. Staff were very nice, pleasant and helpful. Everything you'd want really from staff. Overall, I felt a bit ripped off. The price was way too much given the renovations and lack of breakfast. 5/10.
