“Really lovely hotel, would love to go back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2009

We stayed at the Cedar Manor from 21st Sept to 25th Sept in the Crinkle Crags room for a mini moon after just getting married. We had a lovely time, the breakfasts were very good and Jonathan and Caroline couldn't help us enough. The room was lovely and very nicely decorated. Also the bed very comfy. We both had a brilliant time in Winderemere and can't wait to go back hopefully some time next year!!

I was just starting to review Cedar Manor when I noticed a recent review "Great food appalling customer service" I think we were at the table next to these people, who were really being unfair. I know I was drinking the same house wines, which were all excellent, well chosen and good quality. This couple were deliberately provoking the staff and trying to find fault, where there was none.

Anyway, Cedar Manor gets it right, from start to finish in a relaxing, unhurried and attentive way throughout the stay. Everything is top quality, from furnishings, to service, to food and wines.

Our visit was perfect, thank you Caroline and Jonathan.

We visited Cedar Manor for dinner - our second time there, after a really good first visit, a few months before. Couldn't ask for a more friendly, polite & helpful welcome, than the one we received from the owners. The atmosphere is relaxed, comfortable & warm, both in the lounge/bar and the restaurant. The food was excellent & up there with the best we've had in any restaurant in the Lakes. Very good wine too - the house Sauvignon Blanc was great & not expensive at all. Worth every penny &, having had a lovely time on both of our visits, we would recommend Cedar Manor to anyone.

The accommodation and food were of a high standard but the owner's aggressive response to two politely phrased and mild complaints ruined our stay. We commented that the wine was substandard and the meal late and were met with arguments and belligerence. I could not recommend this hotel.

We have chosen not to address the points raised in this review, as it is written unfairly and in no way accurately reflects the level of service and hospitality that is given at Cedar Manor.
The guest received exactly the same service, wine, food and treatment that anyone visiting Cedar Manor would receive.

Caroline and Jonathan Kaye have got this hotel absolutely right. Well-appointed rooms with seriously comfortable beds, attention to detail, lovely dining room with great food and great service, unstuffy public rooms and above all two owners who go out of their way to be helpful. We had to spread our three-day trip over two rooms (we booked late and couldn't be flexible with dates so they were flexible with accommodation). Caroline and Jonathan moved our stuff while we were out. One day we had lunch out and then couldn't face a hefty dinner with main course. Could we have three starters each instead? Of course, no problem. Could they help with routes, information, leaflets? Certainly. Would we recommend Cedar Manor? You bet we would.
