Wonderful room magnificent building but oh dear we were so disappointed with the fine dining. Fine dining in my mind should be small portions of beautifully tasting food. My husband ordered smoked salmon starter - two pieces of thumb nailed sized fish was taking this a little too far. II complained about my dessert it was awful the waitress shrugged...

The hotel is beautiful. You cannot fail to notice its stunning setting and decor. We also had a fine dining meal on our first night and it was exceptional, Tom was superbly attentive and the food incredible (we had venison). Breakfast is delicious also and we have enjoyed our break in the Lake District immensely... However, the walls to room...

A lovely looking hotel with nice views, decor and open fires. Downsides were the very cold bar area, very poor wifi and very thin walls between rooms 8 and 9 where we could hear every word of conversation from the other room late into the night.

A proper country hotel. An imposing building set in an elevated position and in very charming grounds. The entrance sets the tone, and particularly with the seasonal use of log fires. Lots of really nice seating areas with plenty of reading material. Great bar area (with a log fire and proper seating). Lovely room and very comfortable bed. Breakfast area...

My partner booked this hotel as a surprise Christmas gift for us and our little boy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was huge (a lot bigger than we expected for the price) and they made so much effort to make my little boy feel at home. Brand new paw patrol bedding on...

“Our room was very tiny and a bit too far from reception and indeed life!. We are both disabled so, this did make things a bit tricky but the most beautiful Merewood made our stay as perfect as possible!. The staff at the Merewood are probably the best I have ever encountered!.”
