Stonecross Manor Hotel

Reviewed 16 June 2014

I was at my cousins 90th birthday celebration held in the Function Rooms at this hotel, we enjoyed a lovely 3 course meal from a varied menu. The staff were attentive and efficient , the tables had a white and peach coloured theme and were immaculately set, they had been formed into a square with a beautiful flower display in the centre.The garden made a great setting for a group photograph after our meal. This was a family only celebration and we all had a wonderful afternoon with the birthday "girl"

On the outskirts of Kendal, easy to find. Large car park to the rear, Friendly and smartly dressed staff, very helpful and polite. We were there for a birthday celerbration. very comfortable, nice decor. Varied menu, catering for all, very nice food, well presented, no rush between courses. Recommended.

This hotel could be spectacular. The staff were all lovely and very helpful. The food was also very good. However, it does need some TLC. I stayed in a suite (not sure why as not booked) which was a huge room. There was a four poster bed which was good to look at but squeaked every time you moved in the bed and felt very rickety. The bathroom was large again and had a whirlpool bath but the fittings were shabby and there was some mould growing on the wall. A real shame as it has huge potential. Just needs some updating I think. That having been said, I would be happy to stay again - although on this occasion I was not paying as it had been booked for me by a client who was footing the bill. So I might have a different view if I had known the cost!

Well if u don't suffer with a bad back before ur stay at the stonecross u most certainly will wen u leave!! The beds are extremely hard. On arrival the reception staff were very welcoming and check in was great we arrived early but we're able to go to are room as it was ready. We were in a double room on the first floor (110) first thing that hit me wen we opened the door was the musty smell my husband went to reception for some air freshener n we kept the windows open. We had a four poster bed which I was quite excited about until I sat on it and it Creeked A LOT lol. So if ur planing a dirty weekend be prepared for a few funny looks at breakfast . The rooms need a lot of updating and there were hairs on our towel's and in the sink. The pool and jacuzzi were wonderful a little on the small side for a big hotel but it was quiet while we were there. We didn't eat our evening meal there but looked at the menu which I thought was a tad expensive but the buffet style breakfast was lovely and we'll catered for everyone's appetite. Would I stay again? Probably not unless it gets updated, and the beer garden that's mentioned on there website is a few random table and chairs in the car park.

Spent the afternoon at the hotel enjoying afternoon tea. Fabulous range of sandwiches and cakes. We weren't able to finish it all so the staff kindly offered to wrap up what we couldn't manage And we got to take it home. Lovely relaxing atmosphere.

Me and my partner recently stayed in this hotel as a birthday present from my mum. The rooms were in desperate need of updating, as the furniture was very shabby and worn and we actually requested to be moved from our original room as the window and wardrobe were broken, there was mould around the bath and the bin hadn't been emptied. The man who met us on arrival at reception was quite rude and not very pleasant, but the rest of the staff were polite and friendly. The food was excellent and definitely made up for the poor standard of accommodation. You would also think judging by the pictures on the website that the hotel stood alone in a quiet location, when in fact it is stood on a main road in the middle of a housing estate with poor views! Disappointing stay overall. The sooner they open a premier inn the better!

Room Tip: Rooms are quieter at the back of the hotel.
