I used this hotel for one night as a stop over travelling south from Scotland and wish that I had stayed longer. A choice of two dining rooms with excellent menus made choice difficult. Whilst I didn't have afternoon tea a group of ladies celebrating a notable birthday had an excellent array of cakes to choose from in the conservatory.... More

My Husband and I celebrated our 6th Wedding Anniversary at Appleby Manor and Garden Spa. I got this amazing deal on Groupon and thought oh wow this place looks nice! So I booked! The journey from London to Penrith and then a cab wasn't bad. We arrived at Appleby Manor on the 26th November and it was blue skies and... More

On the first night When ordering Gin & Tonic at the bar we took the advise of the bar staff and had the locally distilled Lakes Gin. It was good advise as it was really pleasant. Unfortunately...

Was gifted a weekend stay at this hotel. Good service with friendly staff. It has a spa which we didn't use. Nice rooms although the ensuite could do with upgrading. Food in the Bistro was good, the Restaurant a tad dear. Also a hefty tray charge for room service. Altogether though, we would gladly come again.

Stay here regularly on business. Beautiful setting and the views on a Summer night are wonderful. Hotel and grounds very well maintained. Breakfast has a great selection and staff are always willing to accommodate my request for an earlier breakfast if I want to check out early.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and took a much needed break away the room was warm and comfy with everything you could need for a couple of days away.
