“Excellent”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed here on 12.03.14. It was supposed to be a nice romantic break away but it turned out he had to have an operation on his hand that morning so we didn't arrive until late at night. The receptionist when we got there was so helpful after we said he had had an op that day and went out of her way to help us upstairs. She recommended a lovely place for us to eat as we were starving. The room was stunning. There was champagne waiting for us (although my partner was still a bit woozy, I really enjoyed it!!) and there were petals on the bed along with a box of gorgeous luxury chocolates. Huge bathroom and the shower was amazing. The spa bath was lovely and my boyfriend thought the idea of having a TV in the bath was amazing!!! The breakfast was wonderful and there was plenty of it. We were due to go on the lake cruise but my partner didn't get much sleep as he was in pain with his hand and so we decided to go home earlier than expected and so we also didnt have chance to use the spa facilities but this is at a McDonald Hotel down the road so no doubt it would have been delightful. This was a wonderful treat for us and I will most certainly book again. I have also liked their page on Facebook which has details of offers and competitions! Well worth the add!!
Thank you again x

Such a luxury place to stay and attention to detail on service and finishing touches. :-) the staff were so lovely. We stayed in room 16, amazing. Loved the mood lighting in the bathroom. The beds are large and very comfy. Breakfast was cooked fresh and excellent quality. Highly recommend anyone to stay. A beautiful romantic place

Our second visit in two years was as memorable as the first visit. The room was well furnished and extremely comfortable despite the bathroom being a little on the small side for a larger person. Everything you need in the bathroom such as shower gel, body lotion, shampoo, conditioner etc. is provided. The staff are really welcoming and helpful whenever the need to interact arises. The breakfasts are of a high stanndard.

My wife and I were looking for somewhere romantic to stay for our 25th wedding anniversary. We looked on the net for hotels in the lakes, and came across The Cranleigh. We were originally going to book room 10 but then we saw the escape suite, although it was more expensive we thought as it is our 25th we should splash out a little. When we got there we were not disappointed with anything. Champagne and chocolate on arrival (ordered in advance) very friendly staff and the room was better than expected. The carpet in the room was really thick and soft. We loved the fact that there was a divider between the bed and the lounge area. The spa bath was gorgeous and the double shower was wonderful. I told one if the staff that I would love to live there. We had the option of having breakfast delivered to our room but decided against it. The service was excellent. If we ever go to the lakes again I would definitely book The Cranleigh. Five stars doesn't give it justice. Highly recommended.

The room , luxury of a spa bath, champagne followed by fabulous bed to sink into after a days walk priceless. My husband and I would recommend the Cranleigh as the place to stay for quality, luxury and romance, we will be returning.

Had heard lots of good things about the cranleigh so treat myself and hubby to a night there last night, I can definitely say the décor inside is lovely, very swish, haha. There was everything you need in the bathroom such as shower gel, body lotion, shampoo, conditioner etc. It is all finished off to a good spec, I think its the lighting that was the star of the show and creates the ambiance both in the bedroom and the bathroom. When we got back from our meal out we put our card in the slot for electric but it didn't work so had to go and get someone who I can say sorted it out very swiftly. The breakfast was lovely, continental and a choice of cooked breakfasts, no problems with it at all. The stay was lovely but the only criticism I had was the parking, especially for disabled, there is not enough spaces for every room so there is an overflow carpark 200m away but it is down a very strange lane, I did not feel safe walking down there on my own and I definitely wouldn't have walked down there in the dark alone!
The hotel is only a 5 min walk away from the shops and restaurants so no taxi needed if going out at night. x

Thank you very much for taking some time to review the hotel. We’re really glad that you found the hotel to a good spec and the breakfast and your stay was lovely also.
We’re really lucky that we can provide parking for all of our residents with a large proportion of spaces at the front and back of the hotel. We do have a spill over car park so to provide all guests with a free space and this area is not suitable for disabled guests but unfortunately neither is the hotel itself, which is why we are regretfully forced to decline such enquiries. Of course if you have mobility issues where possible we would adhere as best as we could to reserve you a space at the front of the hotel so to meet your individual requirements (if we’re made aware of these issues) and we can still comfortably accommodate you in the hotel without concerns for your own safety that is. With the hotel being an old building there are stairs all around to get to various rooms and we would not want to put anyone in a worrying situation!
We have never had feedback before regarding this area being unsafe so we’re sorry that you felt that way. Many guests don’t have the need to go down to the car park at night as the restaurants and shops are literally a 2-3 minute walk away but it is a rural area so many places can seem a little too dark for some.
We hope to welcome you back in the future and thank you once again.

Kind Regards

We had a planned a 2 day, 1 night stay in Bowness and we were very excited given the reviews and pictures of Cranleigh before we arrived.
We arrived an hour earlier than planned and was given the warmest of welcome by reception who allowed us to check in early, which was great as the weather was dreadful.
We were shown to our room and given a detailed explanation of how the gorgeous air spa bath works, we couldnt wait to try it! After approximately 30min in our room, reception gave us a cortesy call, which was great as we did have questions about the facilities and also wanted to rent a dvd from the extensive library.
As it was our "mini moon" we were blown away with the added extras and the personal touch that was given to us during our stay.
The attention to detail, the quality of the finish and not to mention the staff in our opinion is 5*. We will deffinately only ever use this hotel when in Bowness and we have already recommended to our friends and family!
Amazing!
Thank you Cranleigh for making our stay so special :-)

Room Tip: The superior rooms add that little bit more of luxury and the air spa baths are amazing!
