Reviewed 13 June 2012

We stayed here in late Feb/early March and had 2 fantastic nights. Jonathan was an amazing host and made us feel so relaxed. We stayed in "Windermere", a front facing room with a huge bed! Would recommend it for a wonderful night's sleep! Only downside was that a luxury bath was really needed to match the size of the bed, but I think they'd honestly need an extension to fit one in!
The food was exceptional. A fixed price meal with nibbles and a taster soup to start. Locally sourced, beautifully tasty food... amazing! Breakfast was perfect too. My friend had the full English and I had the most perfectly cooked eggs benedict. There were homemade jams, pastries and yogurts (which we didn't try), so plenty for everyone.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cedar Manor 5**********

Room Tip: you won't be disappointed whatever you book!

Just back from a fantasic weekend stay at this gem of a hotel. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The hosts were on hand every hour of the day we were there and went out of their way to address any queries we had. The menu is a seasonal one with a choice of around five dishes to each course, vegetarians are catered for.
There is a warm and comfy small lounge for pre dinner drinks and coffee afterwards. The food was excellent with locally sourced ingredients.
Definately worth a visit and with great walks and attractions nearby you can park your car and forget about it for the rest of the stay.
For the cyclists there is a facility to secure them overnight and I would certainly consider taking them for another visit.
You need to book in advance for the best rooms and it was apparent from other guests we were speaking to that this is a hotel where people returned on a regular basis.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have recently been modernised and command a higher premium however we had a cheape...

We stayed at this hotel over the jubilee bank holiday. We choose this hotel because of the great reviews on trip advisor and it certainly lived up to its reputation. The hotel is well located, just close to Windermere itself. A good base for exploring the lakes. We were made to feel very welcome by Jonathan - the owner. He asked what time we wanted our dinner for each night of our stay and then took us to our room. We choose to stay in orrest head suite, it is a lovely room. Nicely decorated with a sitting room as you go in with a good size tv, settee, fridge and large wardrobe. Our bedroom had a lovely comfortable bed, and a nice size bathroom with a separate shower and whirlpool  bath ( we used this alot after all the walking). They also supply nice bathrobes and shower amenities. The only one downside I can find was the hair dryer (it was the type where you had to hold the button down to keep it on )- very annoying If you have long hair.

We sat in the lounge before our dinner each night with a drink. Its very welcoming with comfy chairs and settees and a small bar. The menu had a good selection of food and wines.  My favourite was the steak, all food was very well presented and tasted lovely. Jonathan and Caroline also work in the restaurant.

Breakfast was again very tasty with a choice of cereal, fruit and fruit juices. Also you can choose off the menu too, with choices such as a full english, eggs benedict, they also a nice selection of homemade jams and marmalade. Its all very well presented and very tasty.

We were looked after very well and were made to feel very welcome, and would highly recommend this place.
