Heard about the Cranleigh by a work mate, so checked it out and decided on a short December break. We were not disappointed in the least! Friendly staff who go the extra mile, little touches that made it special and worthy of its 5*. Room 7 was the room we chose, as it was cosy and had a lake view, in part. Champagne and chocolates greeted us on arrival. Super breakfast too, especially the porridge! Lovely coffee by a roaring open fire after a challenging shopping day was welcoming. All in all a great little treasure of a place right on our doorstep. (We live 35 miles away!!) Hope to have a return trip next year!

We stayed at the Cranleigh for one night in December 2012, recommended by my sister and brother-in-law. The hotel is beautifully decorated, we stayed in Room 9, which did not disappoint. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean, the spa bath in the bathroom was amazing and the television in the bathroom was a lovely addition. Breakfast at the Cranleigh was a lovely experience, the menu choice was impressive and the staff from the moment we arrived at the hotel to the moment we left were outstanding. We will definitely be using this as a base each time we visit the lakes and will be treating ourselves to 'The Hideaway' next time. We would recommend the Cranleigh to anyone and have already persuaded a number of friends to book for a trip early next year.

It has been three years since we were last at The Cranleigh, and although we promised ourselves to 'come again soon', family circs meant we couldn't. We had booked The Hideaway for a 2 night stay as at our last stay, the manager had kindly allowed us to have a look at it when checking out. On the friday before we were due, I received a call from 'Michaela' advising of an upgrade.to The Sanctuary as work was being done in The Hideway.

It's one thing to check out what a room looks like on a computer, but it doesn't do it justice. The bed was just so comfortable. The glass bath perfect and shower gorgeous, not forgetting the TV .The whole thing is enhanced by the mood lighting in The Sanctuary. The showpiece hottub which. with music and champagne just makes for a fab experience. It was minus 3 outside but we didn't notice!

The breakfasts were spot on - full english's one morning and salmon and scrambled eggs for me and english and eggs royale for wifey the next morning.

Even on a quiet early December monday we found a buzzy and very nice Italian restaurant(Villa Postino) just 5 mins away for an evening meal followed next night by a meal at (Roberto's) which we also enjoyed.

We also enjoyed the facilities at Old England again which adds to the experience of the break.

A wonderfully romantic and relaxing end to the year. We WILL be back and it won't be 3 years next time!

Room Tip: Restaurants refer to ones visited as Cranleigh does not offer a restaurant.

We stayed at The Cranleigh a few weeks ago it is beautiful, pure luxury. The staff were very welcoming, outstanding and nothing was to much trouble. We stayed in luxury room 6 which was excellent it had a lovely bathroom with heated floors, Air Spa Bath and TV. The Cranleigh is in a excellent location only a couple of minutes walk from the central village.This is definitely the place to be in Bowness on Windermere. Highly recommend. We had a wonderful stay and can't wait to return. Memories forever.

Room Tip: All rooms have there own individuality i would recommend looking online to pick your perfect room....

We stayed in the Sanctuary for two nights during a mid week break. Absolutely fantastic service and stay. The hot tub is simply excellent and luxurious. Breakfast is served to your room each day with an excellent choice of items. Lovely bathroom with amazing mood lighting and Bose sound system. The mini bar in the room is very reasonably priced which is great as in most hotels the price is too high. They really have thought of everything. The DVD selection is also fab for a chilly winters night!! We will absolutely return!!

Room Tip: The sanctuary is an extra special treat.
