    This was our 3rd stay at the Cranleigh, this time in Room 8. We love the Cranleigh, it’s our favourite hotel in the whole of Bowness especially with it being so close to the centre of town. We of course paid a visit to Baha to take advantage of the website discount. We didn’t eat but enjoyed the amazing cocktails.
    The breakfast was as good as ever and the staff were super friendly and helpful.
    We will definitely be back and will try out one of the other amazing rooms.
    Many thanks.

  • Andy G says:

    Had a fantastic night away at the Cranleigh hotel. The room we stayed in was to a high standard, clean and very comfy. The staff were really helpful and friendly and gave great information where to visit. Ideally located for restaurants, bars and shops. The only minor negative was the parking or lack of spaces for the hotel but that wasn’t a massive issue and the overall stay over shadowed this.
    Will definitely be visiting again and hoping to stay in one of the other themed rooms.

  • Zoe C says:

    The room was just beyond amazing, so beautiful and romantic! The staff were ever so helpful and friendly and breakfast was spot on and so what we needed!

    The hotel itself is situated in the most ideal location within Bowness, right next to the lake, and on the edge of all the shops, restaurants and bars.

    Best nights sleep I’ve had in ages. Will be returning to room 9. Thank you.

  • Julie R says:

    Fabulous hotel, great service, helpful and informative. Lovely room 14 relaxing spa bath with tv in bathroom, separate shower which was excellent. Large TV with Netflix in room. Breakfast was lovely and plentiful. Short walk to spa and pool 2 minutes away. Few minutes walk to lake front and shops, bars and restaurants. Definitely recommend this hotel.

  • Dean Waldron says:

    Stayed here for only one night, stayed in Room 6, which had every think you needed for a wonderful luxury stay from mood lighting to TV in the bath. Lovely hotel within a few minutes walk to the town, access to spa / pool in near by hotel. People warm and friendly. Will definitely stay again

  • Nat Walsh says:

    My new husband and I went to the lakes for our mini moon and stayed on a couple of hotels and the Cranleigh being one of them. Wow wow wow! This place is amazing. We stayed in the sanctuary suite which was perfectly romantic and we didn’t want to leave. The private outside hot tub was lovely which was accessed by the bathroom which is gorgeous with a big glass bath and TV. The staff were all so very welcoming and the breakfast was good, you can even have it delivered to your suite if requested. As part of a special deal we got afternoon tea and the near by fizzy tarte which was really good too. You need to book this suite you will not be disappointed I can’t wait to go back and check out the other amazing suites Thanks Cranleigh and hope to see you again soon!

    We recently booked this hotel as a 30th Wedding Anniversary gift to our parents. From start to finish everything ran smoothly and nothing was too much trouble for the staff, even when I missed something off the booking, it was quickly taken care of. They thoroughly enjoyed their visit, the room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.
    The location of the hotel was very central to local restaurants and bars so there was plenty to do and the Spa was very close by. They even received a congratulations message in their room which they though was a lovely touch. They had breakfast at the hotel and said it was plentiful and delicious and the staff were wonderful and looked after them. They would highly recommended staying at this fantastic hotel, so we will definitely book a stay in the near future.
