My husband and I received an overnight stay for Christmas and what a brilliant gift it was! The hotel is traditional in style and spotlessly clean. The staff are polite, friendly and efficient. The view from the hotel lounges and front facing bedrooms are stunning and well worth the extra to upgrade. The only downside for me personally is the...

Here at the Merewood we are incredibly lucky to be situated on a hillside which gives us unimpeded views of Windermere and the fells beyond. Thank you for your comments about the disabled access.

Lovely grounds very polite and professional staff. Nice room with large comfortable bed. Stayed in Room 9. Guests not very considerate to adjoining room due to noise. No fault of the hotel. The bar area was very nice but drinks a little expensive.

From the moment we arrived at this stunning location the reception staff were brilliant and couldn't have been more helpful. We had made a reservation three months prior to our visit but somehow the booking had not been logged. Fortunately the payment was confirmed, but with the hotel fully booked for a wedding we were in limbo!! However, while ushered...

Booking the room (Groupon) was a little unnerving; made to feel a bit second class. Don't offer Groupon if you then look down on people redeeming their gift (which it was in our case.) Room was pretty ropey; excellent view of the fire escape.This was compensated by some smashing staff, especially in the bar where the lads were really polite...

Thank you for your recent review on TripAdvisor. I first must address the comment about 'looking down on people'. Here at the Merewood, this is most certainly not the case.

A weekend break in February. It was wet, very wet and it was cold, but the welcome was warm and friendly. The reception/hall has lovely wood panelling and a matching staircase leading to the bedrooms.

This is a lovely hotel. Warm friendly atmosphere, very comfortable and attractively presented, great food and staff. We had cream tea in the garden and my dietary needs were catered for. Breakfast offered a good selection and fine dining was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would visit again.
