“Cedar manor”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

We spent a very good weekend here. Cedar Manor is a well run family hotel, service is excellent and the food in the restaurant is worth the visit in its own right. You feel like part of the family. It is also well located for walking or just seeing the sites of the lake district.

I got a two night stay at cedar manor in the coach house for my birthday off my girlfriend, after looking at the pictures of the suite before going i must admit i was blown away. Upon arrival, we were met by the owners who are such lovely people and could not do enough for us. There enthusiasm for there newly built coach house (we stayed jan 2012) was really nice to see, caroline even showed us the interior designers design book.
Jonathan showed us to the suite which is located just to the left of the main hotel and as soon we went in i was blown away at the finish, much better than the pictures i had seen prior to the visit.
We had a meal at the hotel included so we chose to take this on the first night, again this was tremendous. It was a few months ago now so i cant recall exact dishes but all of the food and service was fantastic.
Another nice touch to staying in the coach house is breakfast in the suite. due to the layout (sleep downstairs, living area upstairs) the staff can come in on the upstairs level whist you are snoring downstairs and set the table, bring in breakfast which for me was full english both days and was absolutely delightful. my girlfriend ordered poached eggs, which on both days were cooked to perfection, even with getting them from the main hotel to the suite then us going upstairs. somebody will call the phone next to the bed once the staff have set the table, really really nice touch.

would 100% recommend this to anyone as a nice bit of luxury, maybe a special occasion. I will certainly be back

Room Tip: Splash out and go for the coach house!

Although staying at a different hotel, we decided to try Cedar Manor for dinner from the recommendations on here. It more than lived up to its expectation. We were greeted at the door, and made to feel right at home. The food was absolutely delicious, elegant but still filling after long day out walking. The wine choice was also excellent. We will definitely return and stay there as well, judging by the satisfied responses from the overnight guests!

We decided to spend the New Year in the Lakes and had high expectations for our celebrations with previous reviews written by other guests. It is true the location is superb and the quality of the rooms is to a high standard and we were informed that further refurbishment is to take place with several other rooms this year.

However the jewel in the crown is the welcoming atmosphere offered by the owners Jonathan & Caroline who make you feel nothing is too much trouble and the aim is to ensure you have a enjoyable time. The attention to detail and hard work from the owners, restaurant staff to the house keeping is why I assume they have so many repeat guests. Thank you for a splendid time and the book you gave guests as a New Year present 'The Beautiful Lakes' will always make me think of Cedar Manor Hotel.

We are just back from a New Year break at the Cedar Manor - our second stay this year - and the whole experience was excellent. Caroline and Jonathan ensure that everything, from the beautifully furnished rooms to the fabulous food, is spot on - and talking with fellow guests it appears that most are regulars.
The New Years Eve dinner was lovely - we lost count of the number of courses - and thought we couldn't possibly manage breakfast, but we did - try the pancakes!
Bravo to them both.

Visited the Cedar Manor for the first time for dinner and the experience was first class. The service and quality of the food was excellent in a relaxing yet intimate environment. The desserts deserve special mention and were as good as anything on offer at our recent visit to Raymond Blanc's "Le Manoir aux Quatre Saisons". We will be back and look forward to staying at the hotel and experiencing the full package.

We have been visiting Cedar Manor for a number of years and every stay, either long or short, has been excellent. The hotel is set in a great location and ideal if you want to explore the south lakes and beyond. We have stayed in a number of rooms and have our own particular favourites but every one we‘ve stayed in has been of an extremely high standard and have always given us something different. There’s every type of room to suit your visit. The lounge is very stylish and comfortable and the restaurant is a great place to have a meal after a day out in the lakes. The food is incredible and I’ve found myself having meals I never imagined that I’d ever try. Caroline and Jonathan always give you a warm and friendly welcome and try to ensure your stay is a memorable one. Jonathan is always keen to share his knowledge of places to go and things to do. We have stayed at a few hotels in the lakes but once we found this place there was never a chance of ever looking for somewhere else. No contest, the best hotel in the lakes!
