Our daughter bought us an overnight stay with cream tea from Groupon for an xmas present so we decided to add on another night as it is a three hour journey from the Midlands . I called reception and paid an extra 20 pound to upgrade to a Lake View room with the voucher & was told our cream tea...

From the minute we arrived we were treated to exceptional service by all the staff, nothing was to much trouble, the hotel is beautiful and the grounds have lovely views over the lakes. Despite a power cut the hotel managed to continue with service as usual and the breakfast was lovely, the hotel is beautiful but what made our stay...

We stayed at the Merewood for three nights Friday-Monday the weekend of our son's wedding, neither the venue nor the setting could be faulted. All of the staff were helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and went out of their way to accommodate, but there just weren't enough of them it often took a while to get a drink for instance.

This hotel easily deserves more than 5 stars. It's location alone, overlooking Lake Windermere from a gentle hill above the lake is totally charming. The hotel itself is a 19th Century country manor with matching furniture and decor. Everything is tasteful and beautiful. The furniture and the wallpaper in the rooms are magnificent. The fact that all the rooms are...

Thank you for your recent review onTripAdvisor. Some very kind words. The hotels location and views are something that our guests regularly comment on. Being set in between Windermere and Ambleside, we feel that we are close enough to experience the hustle and bustle of a Lake District village, whilst being far enough away to experience the peace and quiet...

This was our first stay at Merewood and won't be the last! The standards were extremely high, with great attention to detail. The rooms and public areas were spotless, food was of the highest quality, and the staff were most welcoming and helpful. There are simply no negative things to say, except I wish we could have stayed longer!
