“Way above expectations”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

I was very impressed with our stay here from start to finish.
The service was really good and nothing was too much trouble.
The food from scones on arrival to set dinner menu to breakfast was very good and prepared to a very high standard.
I will definately recommend to friends and family.

This was our first trip to Merewood where we had a 2 night stay. The package included a lovely meal on the first night with pre-dinner drinks and canapés in the bar overlooking Windermere, so nice to be treated as guests and not just another customer. The young staff were a breath of fresh air, smart and polite and very keen to please, with friendly chats and advice on what to in the area. The food was fab with nice service with no rushing, everything at your pace. The room was a little cosy but clean with everything you needed. Would I stay again, yes and longer than two days next time. With food and service like that we would be fools not to. Many thanks to the staff. I would also recommend the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick, for an evening out, great little theatre and at a reasonable. Just so much to do in the area.Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 17 was a cosy room around the back, was quite but lacks the view.

Had two nights in this fantastic hotel to celebrate the wedding of our friends Paul and Sarah, and had a brilliant time. From the friendly check-in to the moment we left, the staff couldn't be more accommodating and we will definitely be looking to go back on another occasion to stay again. It has to be said that the breakfast was excellent and it was lovely sitting in the room with amazing views! Shame we weren't in a bedroom with amazing views too which is the only reason I have given it 4 and not 5 for that point. The bed was comfy, rooms spacious, nice deep bath and really clean. Will definitely be asking for a room with a view next time!

Just spent another 2 days at the Merewood. One night on Dinner,Bed and Breakfasr and one night on Bed and Breakfast. We had room 6 which was a nice room with a large bed and the usual facilities. Dinner was lovely on the first night and the Chef is ver good indeed. Both breakfasts were also excellent but what really makes the place is the staff who are all friendly, polite and very accommodating if you need anything at all. There is a very nice bar and the wine list is good and not ridiculously expensive. This is not the first time my wife and I have stayed here and we are hoping to return again before Xmas. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The lake view rooms are large and worth the little extra.

My wife and I were looking for something extra special to celebrate our 1st anniversary and boy did we find it! As we arrived we turned back to see the stunning views of Lake Windermere which are breathtaking. As you enter the historical building it is brought to life by the most friendly & welcoming staff imaginable, some who have been with the hotel since it opened in 94, served fresh baked scones on arrival. Our room was spacious and comfy with spectacular views also. The dinner was out of this world and the service again first class. If you're looking for a magical getaway you can't go wrong than The Merewood.

Me and my husband held our wedding here at merewood on 21 August. From booking, too organising, to getting married Jenny, Lucy and Helen (and all staff on the day) showed absolute understanding, care and attention too detail, patience and upmost professionalism. From turning up the night before our wedding too leaving the day after we felt nothing was too much trouble...I had imagined our wedding day in my head, as im sure every bride does, so many times, the actual day exceeded what I expected, it was a real life fairytale and we will never be able too thank them enough .... rooms, venue, setting, food (exceptional) all absolutely amazing (yep im crying again) ...thankyou merewood for making our dreams reality .... one very happy mr and mrs Beech .

From the minute we booked our daughter.s wedding with Lorna and her crew at Merewood we had no doubts that we would have an incredible time. Having experienced the whole 48 hours 150 people had the time of their lives in one way or another. A dream of a great couple was turned into reality service, food ,attention to detail was faultless. The Lake District and the County of Cumbria should be proud of this gem. Good old fashioned care and common sense are still alive in this establishment unique in the UK
