Relaxing overnight stay

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks ago
We stayed one night on our way up to Scotland so being conveniently located a few miles from the motorway was helful. There was a warm welcome at reception and our room was a good size with a large, comfortable bed and a well equipped bathroom. We had dinner in the restaurant where the service was attentive and the menu had a range of attractive options. Our food was excellent with lovely presentation. Breakfast the next morning was straight forward with a reasonable selection. Overall the hotel had a stylish feel with obvious care and attention being paid to the rooms, the facilities and the bar/dinner menu, creating an all round pleasant experience. Will definitely stay at Crooklands again if we are in the area.

Lovely hotel. All staff were very friendly and made us feel really welcome. Room in the annex had been renovated recently and was amazing. bed, bathroom, furniture and carpet still looked new. The bed and pillows were very comfy. Decor of the hotel was stylish and the food delicious. In fact we couldn't fault anything at all. Lovely quiet area as well. Would stay here again if in the area.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Crooklands Hotel and again I had a very good experience. All the staff are very hospitable, the general areas are well laid out and relaxing and the rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast is fine with no complaints and evening dinners in the restaurant are good value for money and tasty. It's a great base for exploring the Lake District, the Pennines and the Dales.

Thank-you for your lovely comments.

I'm pleased you enjoyed your second stay with us. As you mention, The Crooklands is ideal for exploring The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales and The Pennines. We are located at the point where the three counties of Cumbria, North Yorkshire and Lancashire meet and are handily placed just 1 mile from junction 36 of the M6 motorway.

Thanks again for taking the time to write your review and we hope to welcome you back for a third visit soon.

A hotel with some character, not an identical chain hotel. Good food and good food. All the staff were pleasant, courteous and helpful. A really nice countryside setting but easily accessible from major roads. The bedroom was neat and tidy with all the necessities. Would certainly go back there again

Fantastic stopover on our way to Scotland. Lovely modern room and great facilities. Restaurant was excellent and very good value and the breakfast was superb. Staff were great. We will definitely stay again and maybe for more than one night next time.

Room tip: Take bottled water as none provided in rooms and be prepared to snuggle up with your partner as the beds are quite small!

Thank-you for your lovely review.

I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We have lots of guests that stay with us for a stopover to break up the journey North or South.
We would love to welcome you back for a little longer next time. There are lots of nice days out on our doorstep.

We are within 30 minutes drive of the lake District and The Yorkshire Dales and just 15 minutes drive from the lovely villages of Arnside and Silverdale both of which are Areas Of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is well worth a visit too, it has lots of independent shops and cafes, there is a lovely walk along The River Lune which flows under the famous Devil's Bridge.

We look forward to welcoming you back next time you visit.
