I booked here for a birthday surprise for my girlfriend and we were not disappointed. We stayed in room 15 which is located in the building adjacent to the main hotel. I was a tad worried when we first walked in as it is on the front side of the hotel next to the road but thankfully the road noise...

Firstly, I'd like to agree with a previous reviewer examark, great review & pretty much covers everything I'd say. The sanctuary is gorgeous, a lovely hidey hole away from the main building, the bed is so comfy, the bathroom amazing, and the hot tub, well, its gorgeous to relax in, especially when its raining outside :-) The service & staff...

My partner and I recently spent a couple of days here at the Cranleigh boutique hotel. We did not find the hotel matched up to the glowing reviews previous written on trip advisor. Are so called superior room was small, dusty and in need of an overhaul. Plastic Rose petals on bed (cheap and nasty) although bed was comfortable and...

My husband and I stayed at The Cranleigh for a special weekend away together in the Lakes. We have stayed at many nice hotels, including Gilpin Lodge which isn't too far away, but unfortunately we felt that The Cranleigh didn't quite manage to come across as a boutique hotel. On first arriving, I was blown away by the lovely smell...

Now don't get me wrong by the title of this review, this guest house is in our favourite hotels list now, having just stayed there this past weekend and the quality of the fittings and fixtures in the sanctuary room is very impressive. So the Good (VERY) points: - Really pleasant helpful staff throughout, from our welcome through to the...

I've been wanting to stay at the Cranleigh for some time now and I got my chance last week. My partner and I had booked 2 nights in the Escape suite. We arrived and were welcomed by the lovely Michaela - she showed us to the suite and gave us instructions as to how everything worked. The layout of the...

I have stayed at the Cranleigh before and due to that it is a victim of its own hype. It has no personality and does not meet the constant bombardment of emails telling us how great it is. We enjoyed our first stay last year and really had nothing to complain about, decor is down to personal taste so how...

We first visited the Cranleigh in 2012 and have just returned from our 6th stay. Once again a wonderful 3 day break. The room, staff, breakfast and service, as usual, were faultless. To top it all the weather was fantastic. Thanks to everyone at the Cranleigh for another totally relaxing break in the lovely Bowness in Windermere. We will be...
