My husband and I stayed at Rothay Manor for two nights, 10th & 11th February on a Travelzoo deal and what a fabulous two days we had. We arrived mid morning after a heavy snowfall but a lovely warm wecome awaited us.
The lady who checked us in was cheerful, and very efficient, although our room wasn't ready (it was only 11am) we were able to leave our luggage whilst we walked into Ambleside. On our return later that afternoon, our case was already in our room, and what a beautiful spacious room it was. We had a superior room on the first floor with a balcony, which in mid February we couldn't take full advantage of, but would be bliss in the warmer months, overlooking the gardens.
The room was spotless, the bed very comfortable, plenty of storage space and a massive bathroom with a bath and separate shower.
The highlight for us had to be the dining experience, from our arrival into the lounge for pre-dinner drinks and canapes through to the nightcap, after one of the most enjoyable meals we have ever had.
The staff were polite at all times, nothing was too much trouble. The atmosphere in the dining room was relaxed, because there was no background music playing, guests spoke in low tones which although seemed strange at first, turned out to be an extremely enjoyable experience.
Breakfast was cooked to order and the homemade musesli and jams were delicious.
We left on Sunday morning feeling relaxed and refreshed and will certainly return.
