“Great service - top location”
Reviewed 18 January 2010

Stayed at the Stonecross Manor on a business trip and can thoroughly recommend the hotel. I was only there for one night and due to train delays, arrived late. I had called the hotel and warned them and they kept the kitchen open for me as the choice of alternative eateries close by is - at best - a little limited! The food was very good and the wine list surprisingly extensive.
The best part about the hotel was the staff, personable, attentive and friendly. The room was large and reasonably appointed. Bed was comfy, good TV and bathroom was clean and modern.
Have already booked three more stays here and would recommend.

Easy to find, friendly staff,comfortable room and dinner was superb. The "set menu" had 4 choices of each course. The duck breast in orange sauce (main) was as good as you would get anywhere outside France, and the sticky toffee pudding was blissfully sinful. Breakfast was wonderful

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of your stay at Stonecross Manor Hotel and I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay with us.

I hope your time in the UK was enjoyable and that you had a good flight back to Austalia. Having lived there myself for twenty years I have just returned from a short trip down under and was thrilled to see that we have had some Aussies staying with us here while I was away.

Many thanks once again

I stayed here for a conference, was really comfortable and clean. My room was clean and comfortable and the bed was really super. The staff really looked after you, all without exception were friendly and accommodating, and the food was great. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to go in the pool, but I have heard that it was nice too. It was a nice spot for a conference

Reviewed 25 October 2009

We have just returned from two nights at the Stonecross Manor Hotel. It was a last minute decision to have a weekend away, and one which we did not regret. I do agree with some of the comments regarding the ongoing programme of redecoration, as our room would have benefited from a little attention. The room itself was quite small and compact - the bathroom was particularly cosy, and we struggled to balance our toiletries in the limited space. However the shower was very powerful and refreshing. The hotel's main appeal lies with its wonderful staff and its excellent restaurant. I cannot agree with some of the negative comments regarding the staff - without exception, each and every one was polite, friendly and welcoming. To be honest, I would expect this in a hotel, but at the Stonecross Manor, they go the extra mile! For example, I like ice with my wine - odd I know, but we all have our foibles! On the second night, I didn't even have to ask - the ice was there! Every single member of staff we came in contact with was friendly and had a smile of his/her face. We ate in the hotel restaurant both nights, and on both occasions the food was absolutely delicious. My husband's pasta carbonara starter on the first night was the best he had ever tasted, and the desserts were to die for! Quite reasonably priced too, for the quality. Breakfast was lovely too - an ample selection of cold and hot fare. The only difficulty was trying to hold a plate and a serving spoon, dish up the food and find somewhere to put the lid from the serving dish. Perhaps a larger table? All in all, a great place to stay, and one which I would be happy to recommend.

Dear FlipflopsYork

Thank you for your very complimentary recent review, which I have passed on to the staff. It is heartwarming to read that you enjoyed our service and food so much. We are fortunate enough to have a very dedicated team of individuals who all strive to make our guests experience special and it is pleasing to know that they have delivered for you on the occassion of your stay.

I am pleased to be able to say that our refurbishment programme is well underway and we are making fast progress during these quieter months. It is our objective to have all thirty bedrooms completely redecorated by spring and to date we are ahead of target.

We have taken on board your comments regarding the difficulty with the breakfast buffet and the lids of the chafing dishes and am pleased to say we have now reorganised the tables to make it much easier for our guests.

Many thanks again

Kind regards
Ann

We used Stonecross as a base for exploring the Lake District.
The staff are all very friendly and helpful,
The food was lovely with a good vegetarian dish every night.
It's worth booking dinner in the hotel as Kendal seems to have only Indian or Chinese restaurants.
The room was clean and the bed was very big and comfortable.
We had no complaints at all and would stay again.

This hotel was booked at the last minute and on a budget for bank holday weekend so expectations weren't high. However, from the minute we walked into the warm ,welcoming and classy reception we knew we wouldn't be disappointed. I was particularly impressed they had an indoor swimming pool - although it was a little cold for my two year old! The room was clean and well furnished - in fact it was a little overcrammed with furniture but we did manage to fit in a travel cot.
The Staff, particularly those behind reception and who served us breakfast were very friendly and good with small children. The breakfasts were delicious and served in a v pleasant atmosphere. I
I would strongly recommend this hotel and consider a return visit.

It is particularly pleasing to read that the team made your two year old feel so welcome and I will ensure the pool is of an appropriate temperature for little ones in the future!
