“Enjoyable stay!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

The room was nicely decorated; modern but sympathetic to the character of the hotel. The hotel was in a lovely location with the district centre and pier to the lake next door. Slightly disappointing breakfast in a dated dining room but overall, an enjoyable stay. The hotel could probably do with a few more members of staff.

Stayed here for two nights 6/7April for partner's birthday (along with Gorden the dog). This hotel is in a perfect location in wonderful grounds leading down to the lake. The hotel manages to get everything right. Staff made us feel completely "at home" the minute we walked through the door and this continued to be the case throughout our stay. They are extremely friendly but also extremely efficient. It was obvious to us that they love "their" hotel and take great pride in it, and it shows. We were originally intending only to eat in the restaurant on one evening but the food was so good that we booked in for the second evening. I am not going to mention the room number we had 'cos I am keeping this to myself in the hope that it will be free when we make our next visit (which we surely will).

Thank you for a lovely relaxing stay (despite the weather!).

I adore this hotel and so do my children who are 10 and 8. I have to admit I'm the kind of parent who expects good behaviours from my children at the table or in the hotel... which I hope most people would... But what they love doing is escaping out into the vast gardens or playing cricket and croquet in the lawns.
The chefs are outstanding with fresh menus each night. The views are stunning and the hotel is clean and fresh and so cared for.
I could rave about the architecture or the interiors but let me rave about this instead... When I arrive at this hotel I relax. Completely relax. It's uncanny.
The staff are supremely friendly, down to earth and totally focused in professional service.
We will be going again, and again and again.

Give it a go - you won't regret it. We recently had 3 wonderful nights stay at the Cragwood; it was the first time we decided to take the dogs on holiday with us and as it was dog friendly we thought we would give it a go! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome and all the fantastic reviews we had read were true. Notwithstanding the fantastic location, immaculately kept property and grounds, the heart of this hotel is definitely the staff; they were all truly delightful and their positive attitudes and high standards of Service make them stand head and shoulders above their rivals. In particular, we need to mention the food as the Chef and his team create some exceptional creations; it was one of our highlights looking forward to seeing the Dinner Menu. How this place has not been awarded a michelin star yet is unbelievable! We will be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our short break at Cragwood - our first visit. An all round excellent experience. Staff all very welcoming, smiling & friendly & the kitchen particularly impressive. Lovely setting. We'll be back.

We got married here, and bought along 7 members of our family. It is beautiful, tasteful and very romantic. The building itself is very intimate and has a homely feel. Classy!
I cannot wait to visit again and take our daughter to see where my happiest place in the world is!
Thank you for making fabulous day, truly amazing

Just returned from a 3 night break again. This comfortable country house hotel greets you like a long lost family member and the hotel and staff were once again great. Witnessed the professionalism of the staff when dealing with an exceptionally (in my opinion only)difficult and obnoxiously loud guest. All I can say is well done and how professional! I would not have maintained such composure or calm! Just on line now looking for dates to rebook....love it!
