Excellent all round. Good location for walking. As a group of twelve we were well accommodated. Great value. Dining was excellent. Chef catered for one of our party with special ditary needs. Staff especially our waiter Andrew were delightful without being over attentive. I cannot pick anything to cticise. We have booked again for April 2013.

Room Tip: Rooms in the old part ,1,3,5,6 are particularly good with lake views. However some of our party in...

We have just returned from our second break as part of a group of 12 friends who enjoy walking. Standards at Cragwood are excellent, from the general ambience of the lounges and dining room to the comfortable bedrooms. The staff are friendly and helpful as well as professional, even asking the gardener to come in when we asked the identity of the table flowers. Menus for dinner were varied and meals were of a very high standard and well presented. Cragwood is certainly to be recommended.

Room Tip: Room 4 has a wonderful bow window overlooking the lake but the bathroom is small. We were more than...

A group of us took over the hotel in March for a weekend based on half board.
On the Friday and Saturday night we had set menus which were superb. Even so they were quick to offer a different course of food if anyone wanted to change.
The staff were so attentive and the whole weekend was a fabulous success.
Well worth a stay.

A three day break taking dinner, bed and breakfast is to be highly recommended. My partner and I have just returned from such a break over Easter and we are glowing at the pleasure we felt. Situated in beautiful surroundings, the room (12) was immaculate on arrival and kept that way throughout our stay due to the efficiency of the staff. Greetings on arrival were plentiful and we were given a rundown of the facilities offered. All the staff are extremely friendly without being over familiar, extremely helpful and very proficient at their duties. The cuisine and service in the dining room, particularly for dinner is excellent.
The general ambience of the hotel is first class and as a couple who have travelled the world on many occasions, having stayed in some of the world class hotels, Cragwood comes very high on our list of places to return to.Thank you to all at Cragwood for giving us a very happy and comfortable Easter despite the weather!

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the lake are best for those who love scenery

I have just had my retirement break paid for by my work's at the Cragwood.
What a great present they gave me and what a great place to stay,Accomodation was very good with fantastic views over Lake Windermere.
The food was of high standard which could not be faulted and the Hotel staff were the best I have met for a long time nothing was a problem.
We have only just returned from the break and have already been talking of a return trip in the near future,That is what a good Hotel is about.

Room Tip: Lake view a must if available.

My wife and I spent a long weekend (Friday/Monday) on a special offer including bed, breakfast and dinner. The hotel is delightful, the room well furnished, clean as new and beautifully serviced. The breakfast could be as small or huge as you want and cooked to a high standard and dinner in the evening was to a very high standard of cuisine. But above that, the staff were helpful, friendly and absolutely efficient. Nothing was too much trouble and this hotel sets the standard for customer friendly service. Value for money was very high as we had a very good deal. Perhaps we might not have selected the hotel at full price, but these deals are open to all on specific weekends, so we still feel that the hotel has everything to offer for an idyllic long weekend overlooking Lake Windermere

My husband and I visited Cragwood for 4 nights for my 30th birthday and had a wonderfully relaxing break. The location is brilliant as it is easy driving distance to Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside but just far away enough to be very peaceful and relaxing. The views from the property are breath taking and every morning it was loveley to look out of the bedroom window and see the lake.
We were very lucky to have great weather during out stay and spenty hours relaxing in the gardens where staff were happy to serve us drinks and snacks.
The room itself was very large with plenty of storage although the bathroom was on the smaller side but this was no problem to us at all. The only fault we had was that the bins in the room were not emptied one day but this is only a small gripe.
The hotels decor is a little dated and maybe not to everyones tastes but it is clean and in no way worn. It was a nice change to stay in a hotel that wasn'y exactly the same as losts of other hotels in the country.
The staff at Cragwood are all very welcoming and friendly espacially Andrew and Jonathon who made our stay really enjoyable, nothing was any trouble.
The food was brilliant, you will not leave Cragwood hungry! The food was fresh and very tasty and the portion sizes are excellent. After dinner coffee and chocolates are served in the lounge areas which was very relaxing.
Breakfast is served until 10am which was great for a lie in!

Overall Cragwood is a great country hotel with good facilities and very welcoming staff, we will be staying again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lake view as not all rooms have this. We stayed in room 6 which had lake views...
