Stonecross Manor Hotel
Ranked #7 of 13 Hotels in Kendal
Reviewed 8 April 2013

stopped at stonecross manor for a weekend break room was clean but so hot even with no radiators on that i had to open the windows wide to try and cool down, breakfast was really good with a wide selection of hot and cold food and staff friendly, however is overpriced with local pubs in Kendal offering better deals.

Our first visit to this establishment with friends on a short walking break. Our party totalled 9 adults and our leader organised a very good deal for three nights DB&B in the week after Easter. Rooms are comfortable and clean. The food at night was excellent and only a nominal surcharge made for going off piste into the a la carte menu. Breakfast was the usual Buffett but of excellent quality. The staff, without exception were attentive and cheerful at all times despite the best efforts of one guest (not one of our party) to be churlish and rude to them. It must have taken years of training for this guest to develop such a finely honed talent.

Room Tip: The four poster beds are very comfortable. Perhaps rooms to side and rear of hotel are best in view...

We stayed at the StoneCross for one night on a trip to the lakes, it was a bank holiday weekend and a last minute booking. We had a very large room and it was spotless. Its dog friendly and our boy Max was delighted when offered a biscuit on arrival. He soon learnt that the receptionist had a biscuit box and would stop by for one when ever we were passing. The food in the bar took a while to arrive but it was Good Friday Evening and very busy. The portions were enourmous and the fish and chips was more like a whale. Theres a park just a few hundred yards down the hill for dog walking and the Romney just a few doors down is a fantastically trendy pub that serves lovely food including a carvery and Max got a slice of beef of the carvery here too. A great location with plenty of parking and just 10 minute drive from Lake Windamere. We had a lovely walk down the river into Kendal too would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: We had a room up in the top corner, with windows on either side which had amazing views. and we woke...

We have just had our 3rd stay, and the Stonecross did not disappoint, room 103 (suite) was nice and clean, he food was wonderful, breakfast and diner. The staff are always helpful nothing is to much trouble. The pool was not open but this did not bother us.

We stayed here for our anniversary break so we could visit the lakes. Fab weekend with bucket loads of snowy walks with the dog.

I chose this hotel as it was a little cheaper to stay in Kendal than the likes of Bowness, and they accepted dogs.

The fact that it's got 'Manor' in the name, and from the photo, I assumed it was located more rurally than it is. But we had plenty of green to explore each day so that didn't matter too much to us.

The package we had included dinner both nights so overall I thought that was a fairly good deal, though we both had the game dish the first night and it was a little overcooked.

The room itself was nice and comfortable with a four poster bed, characteristic wardrobe and armchair. My only criticism would be it was a little on the small side - taking it in turns to walk around the bed - and evidence of damp in the bathroom.

The staff were polite and helpful and the breakfast was fine. We knew from the website that the swimming pool was closed for a refurb, so can't complain about that.

The decor, I assume, is designed to be more in keeping with it's old-world kind of charm past. It served this well in the room itself, and in the bar, though the dining room and reception just felt a little '70s. I'm not sure how the new modern looking pool would fit with it all.

Overall, not bad, but don't chose this if you're looking for luxury modern.

Had a lovely relaxing break, in this beautiful hotel. All staff first class, helpful and friendly (with a special mention to Mano) for his tips and advice on where to visit in the local area. Our bedroom was warm and cosy, very quiet with plenty of hot water. Breakfast excellent and the evening meal we had on the first night was delicious. We would love to stay here again, thanks to you all for a very relaxing and memorable stay.

We stayed here for one night, as a last minute break. The hotel room was superb. We stayed in the king-size four poster bedroom, and were not disappointed. The room was tasteful, clean and had everything we needed. The view from the room was nice, colour tv, facilities to make hot drinks, clean bathroom with shower / bath, plenty of towels. Staff couldn't do more, they were very attentive. In fact, we asked to borrow two champagne glasses for our room and they gave us a bucket of ice to go with them!

Food in the restaurant was first class and very reasonably priced. Served with a smile :-)

We would recommend this hotel to anyone, and will most certainly be staying here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in 207. Second floor, right at the end. We will be asking for this room again!
