Reviewed 6 June 2011

4 couples vacation visiting London, Paris, Lucerne, and the Lakes. This was our best experience! The staff was excellent and personable for our 3 night stay. Rooms (2 upstairs/2 first floor) were great and serviced each morning while we were at breakfast. The multiple sitting rooms and alcoves provided privacy and were ideal for our group as we reviewed the day's excursions over a "Pint" from one of the two hotel bars. The hotel gardens and grounds were captivating and superbly maintained. Although the hotel was fully booked, it was quiet and we were treated like we were the only residents. The staff made us feel special! The food in the hotel is excellent - we ate in the hotel two of the three nights we stayed in the Lakes. Plenty to do and see at the hotel with garden trails, lawn game area, and boat house. We will be back!

Room Tip: Let the staff know your needs. All rooms were nic

Stayed here for 5 nights as part of a literary tour of England. Our guide booked the entire hotel for our group and I can't say enough good things about the place. The food was superb - 5 star! We Americans were expecting the English food to be bland and boring - boy, were we wrong. The grounds of the hotel are magnificent. We would come back!

We have just spent 5 nights at Cragwood and have to say that it it a wonderful place. It has everything you could want for a relaxing stay. The hotel itself is in very good order (our bathroom whilst nice, top quality fittings, could have done with a little TLC) and the building is set in beautiful grounds right on the shore of Lake Windermere. The staff are some of the most friendly and helpful we have ever encountered and the food in the restaurant is nothing short of superb with a menu to suit all tastes. We will definitely be coming back here again.

Stayed in a King size room plenty of space good storage superb bathroom and powerful hot shower with plenty of towels - immaculate. Hotel room over looked the car park despite this it was quiet but would have preferred a lake view, but room was nice although have stayed in better.

Hotel clean, warm, friendly,location is what you a paying for - idilic

Ideal for a romantic break or relaxing holiday.

Great location close to Windermere and Ambleside

We have been coming to Crag Wood for five years now and in that time I can honestly say that the food and service have remained excellent. The food is beautiful, particularly the starters and desserts- I've eaten at Claridges and I have to say that Crag Wood's food is on a par, if not better!! The homemade chocolates and the canapes are stunning. The location and the grounds are impressive too. All in all it really is a little gem! We look forward to our next stay and would like to give a big, fat thank you to all the lovely staff who have made our stays so enjoyable.
