We have just spent a delightful 3 nights at this charming,beautifully decorated, well run, small hotel. Owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food sampled during dinner on our first night and breakfast each morning was of a very high standard with a talented chef at the helm. Our room was the Langdale and had a super sized bed with the most wonderful bedding that we just sank into. I also enjoyed my spa bath! An extra bonus was the fresh milk in the fridge for hot drinks. What a plus and saved us hunting down a pint on our arrival. All in all a great place to go for peace, tranquility and to recharge the batteries. Thank you Caroline and Jonathan!!

Room Tip: We also got a small glimpse of the lake, at a distance, from our room. Paying more did get us the hu...

We spent a long time looking at hotels and B&Bs for our stay in the Lake District in April. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of Cedar Manor. It is in a charming location, but within walking distance from the train station. Our room (Coniston) was immaculately presented and had a beautiful view of Lake Windermere and the surrounding fells. The décor of the hotel was spot on and has been done to a really high standard. The lounge has lovely tartan fabric and feels very cosy with the fire going.

The Hosts Caroline and Jonathan and Patricia the waitress are absolutely wonderful. They are friendly and warm. Jonathan told us about all the nice restaurants in town and where to go if we were looking for something quick or inexpensive. Caroline and Patricia were charming. We came in on the last day absolutely soaked to the bone from a walk in the fells. As we warmed up in the lounge, Patricia came to have a chat with us to cheer us up which was lovely. Though we did not have dinner we had breakfast in the hotel every morning which was delicious. We had the choice of full English breakfasts pancakes, eggs benedict which were cooked brilliantly. The portions were hearty but the food was never greasy or simply dolloped on the plate. Excellent stay all round. I could not recommend it enough. Lovely hosts, lovely room, lovely food and lovely location.

Room Tip: Coniston has a beautiful view and a separate dressing area

My husband and I decided to visit the Lakes to celebrate our 21st anniversary. I am rather fussy about accomodation and because it was a special occaision, it was important for us to choose somewhere special. We checked out alot of hotels and reviews before deciding to book Cedar Manor hotel! We were not dissapointed, the hotel is beautiful and it is situated in an ideal location. Our room was at the front of the property, overlooking the garden. It was lovely to open the window and enjoy the sunny weather whilst enjoying a glass of wine! Jonathan and Caroline were great hosts who take obvious pride in their business. They were welcoming, friendly and helpful when required. Their staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We booked evening dinner in the hotal resturant on our first night, the food was delicious and of a very high standard. The service was excellent too. We did eat at other resturants but we both preferred Cedar Manor. To conclude; fab hotel, lovely rooms, great service, ideal situation and delicious food. Would we stay there again, without a doubt!

Me and my partner stayed here for our anniversary this weekend and were very pleased with our choice. It was a last minute booking but the owners and staff were very welcoming and the room was lovely. We are already looking into stopping again.

When we visit the Lakes we normally stay in B&B's but a friend bought us a one night stay at this hotel as a wedding gift. We stayed in the Coniston room which had a gorgeous view - you could see the Lake in the distance. The room itself is small but it does have a separate dressing area. The bathroom is also quite small but does have a bath tub and is very modern and clean. We didn't eat at the hotel but the menu looked really nice and the small restaurant had a nice atmosphere to it when we walked past on the evening.
Breakfast was delicious! Plenty of cereals, yogurts etc to choose from and the hot food menu had a good selection to choose from.

Highly recommend!

Thank you very much for reviewing your recent stay at Cedar Manor. We are just under 1/2 mile from the Lake and as you said, there is a view from the Coniston Room, you also get a majestic view of the Coniston Fells, Crinkle Crags and Bowfell.
What a shame that you didn't try the restaurant, its candlelit and very romantic.
We are pleased that you enjoyed breakfast though.
Maybe you will give us a another try in the future, or just book in to the restaurant if you are staying in a b&b locally.

Staying at Cedar Manor has become a regular event for my wife and I over the last three to four years. Jonathan and Caroline set the bar so high that it is difficult to imagine staying anywhere else in the Lakes. However, they do not rest on their laurels, it is clear that the hotel is not just a business for them but a passion. This shows in every aspect of the hotel, including the food, the character of the bedrooms and the sheer excellence of the service. We checked out yesterday and booked our next stay before we left, what more can we say!

Room Tip: Try them all, they all have a different character

My partner and me booked for three nights with dinner on the first evening. The setting is lovely and despite being just off a rather busy road it is amazingly quiet and peaceful. Buildings don't come much better than this one with lots of original features and detail touches it is comfortable and the welcome and service personal and attentive without being over fussy. Dinner on the first night was super and breakfasts as near perfect as it's possible to get. If I had to be really, really picky the dinner menu could be a little more varied but my partner is a 'particular' eater and she was looked after superbly well and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was excellent and the standard of housekeeping without fault. This may not be the cheapest hotel you'll find but it is well worth the cost. Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: Do ask when booking as the owners are very helpful with advice on the rooms.
