“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We've just come back from a lovely relaxing stay at Ravenstone Manor and hope to return. We were there for a two night break. Everything was perfect.....from a very friendly welcome right through to when we left. We were even offered fresh milk to take to our room! We had a beautiful meal on the second night. The hotel will cater for all types of taste and diet...be it vegetarian, gluten free etc. Everywhere is spotless and very comfortable. If you want a beautiful old manor house with good traditional values and lovely food, this is for you. Thank you to the owners and staff for a wonderful stay.

Had an excellent 3 night stay in early April 2014. Staff extremely welcoming on arrival and introduced the facilities available. Given a room at the front of hotel overlooking lake, with a shower room (no bath) which appeared to have been recently refurbished to a high standard. All staff around the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly, with the owners constantly in attendance and always willing to offer any assistance when requested.
We dined in the restaurant each evening and were very impressed with the menus and quality of dishes served both in the evenings and at breakfast time, and particularly liked the assurance that all foods served were gluten free. Having a grandson who is on a gluten free diet we know the problems which can arise when selecting suitable meals.
Could not fault the hotel in terms of standard of fixtures and fittings or cleanliness in all areas. Ample parking facilities and the availability of wi fi throughout the hotel are added bonuses.
I am sure that we will be returning before too long.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the lake, although there may be slight traffic noise this is more than co...

Our daughter & son-in-law bought this as a Christmas gift & oh what a cracker it was! The view from the room on the top floor was fantastic, the food plentiful with excellent choice. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be booking another visit to this gem of a place.

Room Tip: High floor rooms give excellent views.

This was our second visit to Ravenstone Manor and was just as good as the first time. Great food (with lots of little special touches) and the staff were really friendly and very helpful. Comfortable rooms and lovely bar, lounge and games room. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

Being sited in an old country house,dining room,lounge and bar are beautiful and full of character:the lounge also contains a full-size snooker-table.Our room,in the more recent extension,was of adequate size with a roomy bath.All in the hotel is very clean and well-maintained.Service and attention are first-class,impressed that we were shown round the hotel on arrival.For a small hotel,choice of food at breakfast and evening meal are excellent(special diets well catered-for),quality also excellent.Easy to find the hotel,as it's on a main road,and views are beautiful as you'd expect in the Lake District:parking is also adequate.All staff very welcoming,easy to understand why so many return here.

Everything about our stay at Ravenstone Manor was excellent from the booking through to the stay it self. We were greater by Kim, one of the owners who checked us in. Made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We were shown around the hotel. Everywhere was very clean and well presented. We had an evening meal which was good. The view from the room was excellent. Facilities in the hotel were good. The staff are excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. This was an excellent short break in a great part of the country.

Fantastic relaxing break at Ravenstone Manor, warm welcome, lovely comfortable bedroom, fantastic facilities and friendly staff that cannot do enough for you. Situated 5 miles away from Keswick but plenty of walks straight from the front door and bus stop right outside hotel if required.
Will definately be staying there again. thanks
