Good Hotel Guide Review

This cosseting and intimate hotel, in a Victorian villa close to Lake Windermere, continues to charm guests with its luxurious bedrooms, thoughtful comforts and faultless, friendly service. Much of Cedar Manor’s success is down to ‘first-class hosts’ Jonathan and Caroline Kaye with their ‘lovely warm welcome’ and ‘attention to detail’. Its location, screened by trees and away from the crowds yet easily reached, helps too. Bedrooms have a contemporary country house style with Herdwick wool carpets, bespoke wood furniture and spoiling touches: bathrobes, fresh milk and chocolates, plus REN products in the ultra-modern bathrooms, some with spa bath; only one is shower only. ‘Afternoon tea is a must’, with home-made scones and cakes, while simple supper platters offer local produce. Alternatively, it’s an easy walk to the Kayes’ recommended nearby eateries. ‘Delicious’ breakfasts have ‘many options’ including smoked haddock, Cumbrian grill and vegetarian alternative. ‘You feel special from start to finish and nothing is too much trouble.’ ‘Another fabulous stay.’ (Peter Laws, Jane Roberts, Janet Hillhouse, Kay Gordon, and many others)
