“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Stayed as part of our touring holiday. We booked a small room with separate bathroom as it was the only one left but on arrival were offered an en suite for a small extra charge. The room was fantastic, service throughout our stay was first class and we had a brilliant time. We will definitely be back.

What can I say about the cranleigh? Apart from best hotel ever. As a frequent traveller I have stayed at many hotels and this one beats all of them easily.
Staff- attentive
Breakfast- delicious
Room (3)- gorgeous
Location- ideal

I nearly didn't leave.

We had the pleasure of staying in the Sanctuary Suite last Saturday and Sunday night. The suite is in a converted bungalow to the rear of the property and from the outside you cannot imagine the luxury you will find inside.
The quality of the fixtures and fittings is very high and so much thought and attention to detail has gone into the rooms. The bottled water, ice buckets, fresh lime and chocolates are a nice touch.
The hot tub area is really lovely. There is a large waterproof parasol over the hot tub so even if it is raining it doesn't matter. In fact there's something rather lovely about sitting in the hot tub with a glass of prosecco when it IS pouring down!
Breakfast was delivered to our room each morning and was of a good quality and plentiful.
The location of the hotel is ideal with the lake and numerous bars and restaurants all within 5 minutes walk. All the staff we came across were friendly and helpful and a special thanks must go to Elena.
As suggested by other reviewers it may be worth considering some sort of cover for the 2 windows in the bedroom as they do look out onto the car park but this certainly didn't detract from a wonderful stay. It really was a Sanctuary and escape from reality for a couple of wonderful days.
P.S. The strawberries dipped in chocolate are exquisite.

Room Tip: The Sanctuary is expensive but if you can, it is well worth treating yourselves.

We stayed for three nights in a luxury room (12) and took advantage of an offer they had on - champagne on arrival and complementary boat trip on the lake. The room was lovely, especially the bath! Worth noting that there is no stand-up shower in this room but there is a shower head for hair-washing. Customer service was excellent - checking if everything was ok, chocolates on the bed at night, very efficient room service, wide range of DVDs you could borrow etc. etc. Breakfast was very nice. Excellent location - a couple of minutes walk to the lake and lots of great restaurants.

Room Tip: Some reviewers mention noise - room 12 was very quiet!

Boyfriend and I, together with another couple, stayed for 3 nights for daughter's graduation in Carlisle.

I expected better but can only be vague - I'm not sure exactly what I expected though comments on Tripadviser are very positive. It was sort of all front and no substance.

There was no bar but staff provided the drinks we ordered at reception. Our superior room was small and stuffy and I didn't find the mattress comfortable, so slept badly. It was a sort of memory foam thing and I know some people swear by them. Chocolates were provided and a soft toy was placed on the bed together with imitation rose petals. There was a rubber duck in the bathroom.

Breakfast was good and staff couldn't have done more but really, I can't believe this is the best accommodation the Lake District has to offer. We would definitely look elsewhere next time.

Had a super 2 night stay to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary, great location a few minutes walk from the town and Macdonald Hotel in which you have use of the gym and spa (would recommend). Stayed in room 10, which is classed as a suite, fairly large room with a bay window with no privacy, though it is at the back of the hotel. A huge luxurious airbath which I struggled to get in and out of (only 5ft 2), unfortunately no upright shower just a retractable hose from the bath.
I had thought when booking that I'd booked a special offer and didn't check my confirmation until the day before arriving,and found my suite wasn't included in the offer, unfortunately I wasn't allowed to change rooms, which would have saved me £100 and included a bottle of champagne and 2 Lake cruiser tickets. I was informed that they were fully booked though appeared to have vacancies when we arrived.
The staff were all friendly and helpful, breakfast was good, Vegetarian bacon would be great, also Quorn best of British sausages are by far the tastiest.
I've been fortunate to stay at 5 star hotels previously and have enjoyed L'Occitane toiletries and I think it's these sort of extras that I was expecting. Also things like the complimentary tea and biscuits (one pack of 2 biscuits) a little mean. Apart from the change of room there was nothing that could have been rectified during our stay but am hoping my comments are taken as constructive tips.
