A well located hotel with comfortable rooms, room 6, has a nice sized bathroom, although the shower door could do with an adjustment as it leaks a little leaving a large puddle over the floor!
Excellent breakfast, freshly prepared, which makes a change from the ubiquitous buffet style of most hotels.
Not sure if the hotel has air conditioning, but we nearly needed it such was the beautiful hot weather, not sure that can be said for most visit to the lakes? As mentioned the weather was hot, there is nowhere to sit outside to catch the evening sun, except on the hotel frontage which is by the main road.
The Belfield next door has excellent views of the lake to have a sundowner at, but don't bother with the food I had a soup and sandwhich, something to be forgotten.
This was our first visit to the lakes and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Try The Postilion restaurant, excellent food and wine list.

Stayed two nights in room five. Received a warm welcome on checking in. We were taken to our room and shown all the gadgets. The room was luxurious and cleanliness excellent. Bathroom was stocked with high quality toiletries fluffy towels and bathrobes. Spa bath was amazing. Lovely lighting surrounded it and the tv was a bonus. So relaxing. Beds were turned down each evening and chocolate mints left on the pillow as well as little glass bottles of water on the bedside tables. Such nice touches. Breakfast was very good with a full menu and a choice of cereals fresh fruit and yoghurts. Service was prompt and unobtrusive. A beautiful place. Quiet area but shops and restaurants are nearby. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again soon.

We were looking forward to staying at the Cranliegh again after our first stay last year. Once again the Cranleigh excelled themselves in the way they looked after us and the quality of service they gave. We stayed in a different room, but was every bit as good as our first stay. Special praise has to be given to a particular memeber of staff - Michaela, who remembered us from our first stay. She actually remembered from our first stay that we requested an iron and ironing board and had them ready for us! As well as Michaela being very friendly and helpful the rest of the staff were likewise - couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are luxurious and very clean just as you would expect from a quality hotel. The spa bath in our room (Room 16) was very welcomed after a long days walking and enjoying the lake scenery. Relaxing and enjoying the spa bath while watching tv at the same time was something we looked forward to. The Cranleigh is well situated as its a short walk to the Bowness Piers, Restaurants and Shops. The Hotel serves a lovely breakfast with the staff being friendly and attentive giving your day a great start. We are looking forward to going back, but if you are a first time visitor to Bowness-on-Windermere then the Cranleigh is the place for you to stay. Great Hotel, great area - you can't go wrong. Thank you to all at the Cranleigh for making our stay enjoyable once again!!!

I really don't know where to start with this review but its certainly going to be worth a read.
My partner books this hotel for me as a suprise anniversary getaway.

On arriving at the hotel we were greated by a lovely welcoming receptionist who showed us to our room (The Sanctuary) and gave us a quick show of what all the remotes did ect which was very helpful.
The room itself it out of this world, from the plush red bedroom with extra kingsize bed underfloor heating, fully stocked mini bar, 40" LCD plasma screen, real fire, crystal & plastic wine and champagne glasses, mood lighting, bose sound system, remote control blinds. you literally couldnt ask for any more....and then you walk into the bathroom. Every girls dream!

Huggeeee designer bathtub with a plasma tv for you to watch whilst in the tub and seperate waterfall shower, and twin sinks and a private hotub. The sound system fed out throught the bathroom and private hot tub which was nice!

Aside from all the quality gadgets and gismos the room was cleaned to a fantastic standard. and equiped with almost everything you needed, bathrobes, slippers, cotton buds and alsort of duck island toiletries. all you need to bring is a toothbrush!

On the evening me and my partner went out to dinner, and on our return the maids had been in (we had only spent maybe 2 hours in the room during the day and used 1 hand towel) every single towel had been replaced. the bed had been re-made and they are turned all the mood lightening on and closed the shutters so it was fantasticly romanic on our return!

Breakfast in the morning was also fantastic! hot/cold vegie/full english. whatever you wanted, it wasnt a problem. The hotel is situated about 200yards from lake windermere and 5 minutes from the majoirty of the shops.

I could go on writing all week about how fantastic this hotel is. but this review it getting very long! If you are in any doubt. just book it, i garentee you will not have one single regret. we cant wait to go back as soon as possible!
