5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

We've just spent three days at The Cranleigh and it was a great experience, a warm welcome, attentive friendly staff, (Alice was a delight), the rooms are wonderful, it felt as if someone had put their own personal stamp on how hotel accomodation should really be,
We would highly recommend this elegant, tasteful, friendly boutique hotel, we will certainly be back,
Linda & Steve

Stayed from 29th Nov to 2nd Dec for our wedding anniversary in room 9. Fantastic location, great staff and very classy boutique hotel which is worth the money. In a fantastic location to discover the Lake District. We had a wonderful anniversary dinner in the Cedar Manor Hotel restaurant which I would recommend.

Thanks ever so much for taking the time to write a review on the Cranleigh. It sounds like you had a lovely break, thanks for pointing out the value for money aspect as we are a higher end priced accommodation provider in the area but as you have stated it is ‘worth the money’. We hope to welcome you again in the future, all the best for the festive season.

My husband & I stayed at the Cranleigh back in February (2013) and we had a fabulous time. The room was stunning and decorated to a high standard; the petals on the bed combined with the chocolates and champagne was such a lovely and generous touch. The spa bath was extremely relaxing also and aided the romantic atmosphere. The staff were so warm and welcoming through out our stay. Their knowledge of the local area was a real asset. Breakfast the following day was exquisite. Would highly recommend to anyone, the Cranleigh definitely delivers on style, warmth and indulgence!

Wow thanks so much for placing a review from your stay back in February. It is always so nice to hear from people late on following their stay as it really does show that we had a lasting impression. We’re loving your descriptive words, I think we might even share this review with our social media followers. Thanks once again, have a fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We have recently returned from a 2 night stay at the Cranleigh after taking advantage of the winter escape offer.
Everything about this place is class, from the moment you walk in the front door you are welcomed by super friendly staff & the room was brilliant.
We stayed in room number 11 which was on the top floor of the building next to the main hotel. Lovely big comfy bed which upon our arrival there was rose petals, box of chocolates & and a teddy bear all for us, of and just a bottle of champagne in a bucket of ice aswell!!!!
The bathroom had all mood lighting and a massive spa bath, a real treat.
Each morning we had breakfast where you had the choice of numerous hot and cold food cooked to order.
The Cranleigh is literally a 2 min walk in to the centre of bowness, great location with private parking.
We will be back one day, thank you for a great stay.

Room Tip: We had room 11, don't pick this one if you don't like walking up two flights of stairs, grea...

Where to start? This boutique hotel stands above the rest even from the outside! Ideally located by shops, restaurants, pubs and the wonderful Lake Windermere harbour. We were welcomed by the lovely Mikeala with a glass of Prosecco and sat in front of the roaring coal fire chatting away. She was extremely helpful and even lent me her phone charger! On entering the suite, via your own front door (excellent) you sink into the deep pile of the carpet and walk into the sumptuous living are. Extremely comfy sofa, table and chairs for with twinings tea chest etc, mini bar, ice, lemon & lime for drinkies. We were lucky enough to also have Champagne on ice :) Then you enter the bedroom area, with another TV & 2nd DVD player, huge deep and comfy bed, with the best pillows I have ever laid my head on! The bed was decorated with rose petals, hand made chocolates and a huggie ted. The bathroom was outstanding, twin spa bath with mood lighting, twin showers (1st for me!) bathrobes, slippers, beautiful toiletries, literally all you need bring is your lover! We picked up a Chinese from Me & You restaurant, our 3rd visit & superb. Reception provide plates etc and we enjoyed our meal in the suite, watching movies (also provided FOC) Following a wonderful nights sleep, breakfast was brought to us at 10am, perfect for those of us who really want to unwind together. Choice was outstanding, hubby had full English, I had eggs benedict. Reluctantly we had to say goodbye :( but then had 2 spa passes included to enjoy at hotel overlooking Lake Windermere. Nice swim, sauna, shower then coffee overlooking the lake. This one night break could not have been more perfect, well unless we stayed for longer! Truly magical place. Many thanks to everyone at the Cranleigh for a perfect stay, believe me you won't want to go out!!!
