Our first visit and we were both delighted; would not hesitate to go there again. Crooklands was our overnight base for two days away from home in Manchester to mark my birthday. After a long visit to Levens Hall and Park we arrived to a very friendly welcome and a superb, large room of impeccable quality. Dinner in the restaurant...

We had a business meeting here in the bar area. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bar doesn't allow you to open a tab, but that's not a big problem. Nicely decorated and clean. Ideal location just off the M6 and routes from Yorkshire sales and Lake District.

Great friendly staff, nice surroundings but menu very limited. Had a pub supper and nothing to write home about, very standard food. Good location for meeting up with lots of parking but wouldn't get overly excited about the menu or standard of food,

I have been going to the Crooklands for over 33 years and sadly I think that I have seen it for the last time. 33 years ago we held our wedding reception at the Crooklands Hotel and have visited numerous times since, however I have never seen it as bad as it was last night. The 'Jules' restaurant is nothing...

We came for seven nights with a group of sixty, bit worried that it might be a bit down market, but pleasantly surprised to see how lovely it was. We understood that it was a 'family business' this meant mother and daughter and son-in-law (i believe) However, all the staff, bar, reception, cleaning, were like one big family. Each person...

Excellent meal spoiled by the waitress rolling her eyes impatiently while we decided what to order! She also had the top of her spongebob pants sticking out of her trousers.......not a very attractive sight! Highly recommend the food and the surroundings are very nice. Probably best to book in advance

Booked a table for 4 for my BIrthday meal after researching Menu on Website. Was looking for something a little bit different, but with traditional food to accommodate all of the party. Arrived earlier than our 7pm table booking and the Bar and Restaurant was already exceptionally busy. We sat in the Lounge Bar and chose our meal. The waiter...

My hotel search results found that this was the best price @ £75. Very nice hotel with professional staff. My room was spot on, immaculate and perfect in every way. Breakfast was just what the doctor ordered. All in all a very good place
