Historical Traveler Reviews Cedar Manor Hotel and Restaurant Windermere
Lovely Place:- Food superb
Just the tonic for a January grey weekend. A really nice atmospheric Hotel/B@B. Food although not cheap is first class. Dining room a really nicely laid out room with good lighting. Really comfy small bar area to lounge around in. Great location, Well designed rooms, Top breakfast. Really nice place to get away from it all. The only slight down if any is that it could be considered a little pricey for what else you coulf get in an area swamped with hotels etc but all said a really good place to have a break.
This really is a great little country house hotel. We stayed in the Langdale room which was very pleasant, it had a very large and comfortable bed and nice bathroom with a spa bath, everything was spotless. The owners work incredibly hard to make your stay good. The breakfast and evening meal were absolutely superb, we couldn't believe how good the food was and there is a nice selection of reasonably priced wine. It took about 10 minutes to walk to Windermere town and about 20, maybe 25 minutes to walk down to Bowness. We will definitely return, had a fantastic time.
Our room was actually a two room suite, with garden views. We were in walking distance of town centre. The rooms were bright, clean and well equiped. I do wish the bedding was a little lighter for the weather (feather bed), My husband enjoyed early morning jogs on trails down to the lake.
A snowy stay in a beautiful hotel
We stayed for two nights in the Orrest Head suite which was a beautifully decorated room and very spacious and clean. The spa bath was much appreciated after a day out walking around the lake and was just about big enough for two! We only dined at the hotel for breakfast which was fabulous and set you up for the day. They had no problems adapting the cumberland breakfast to suit my vegetarian requirements and were more than happy to do this. The owners were friendly and welcoming and this service even stretched to helping dig and push several cars out of the car park on the Sunday morning due to the very heavy snowfall overnight. I would recommend this hotel to anyone as it suits families and couples alike. The Orrest Head suite is a must for a romantic break. The hotel is really well placed for both Windermere and Bowness as it's just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Windermere village and it only took about 30 minutes to walk to Bowness.
Very Nice Place
We stayed here for only one night in the small, but comfortable Claife Heights double room. The hotel has great parking facilities compared to some we saw, this is a big priority for my husband as he treasures his car and would never book a hotel that does not provide safe parking.
The weather was atrocious, but the lakes are always lovely whenever you go, so I would highly recommend this lovely place. The breakfasts were lovely but we didn't eat dinner here. We thought £22.50 per person rather steep actually. However it's only a short walk into Windermere. Lovely Hotel!!
The 200 yr old Cedar Tree is something else too!!!
A gem of a hotel
I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights over Easter with my husband and 5 month old. We stayed in the Orrest head suite which was excellent- the separate sitting area coming in particularly handy for a travel cot. The suite was beautiful, very clean, lovely toiletries and bath robe, with a romantic feel to it, although the views were not that great the room more than made up for it. The breakfasts were excellent but of particular note were the evening meals. The hotel has only just started serving dinner and compared to my other visits to the Lakes I experienced the best food. Fantastic dishes and great quantities. When the baby was settled we were able to enjoy some lovely meals with our baby monitor to hand! Great location, just a 5 minute walk to Windermere with plenty of parking. Would highly recommend.
Great, friendly hotel
We stayed 2 nights in one of the executive rooms (Bowness) in the hotel (not the Coach House). The super king size bed was very comfortable and the room was well equipped and furnished and also nice and quiet. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean and the breakfast selection was excellent and well cooked. The location is very good within very easy walking distance from Windermere town centre, and the room prices are very competitive in comparison. Private parking is provided. The hotel resataurant looked good and comes with commendations. We preferred to dine out however and very much enjoyed meals at The Lighthouse in Windermere and especially Americana's in Bowness which was absolutely excellent. A great place to base yourself for exploring The Lakes and we shall definitely plan a return.
A lovely hotel set in peaceful surroundings, good food and service. The rooms are splendid. A joy to visit, thanks!
A lovely place, and really nice food
My wife and I stayed in the 'Windermere' room which was absolutely delightful.
We ate in the restaurant (which has only just opened apparently - the hotel is under new management) and it was fabulous!
I'd recommend staying here, taking an early evening stroll down to Lake Windermere and coming back in time for dinner in the restaurant. My idea of heaven!
A lovely, small hotel located in a secluded area. Our family of three stayed in the coachhouse, and we enjoyed ourselves very much. The facilities are well-maintained and the room was very clean.

... Ingleby Cross. This we managed to do in only 8hrs 30min due to it being almost dead flat across the broad valley of the River Swale. Luckily there has been little rain so the paths were dry through paddocks of dairy cattle and sheep, then Lucerne and barley. We did not see one other walker going our way the entire day, though there were a few supposed to be doing the long trek. Most others split it into two days, though it would be pretty boring. However, we were very ...
... a little sloppy in comparison to the sponge and did not seem to go with the plating of all the prior dishes that evening.
My conclusion after this experience is that I need to try another Michelin star venue. My review of this one is that it is not worth the money despite the luxurious setting and beautiful views of the hills and the lake beyond them. I hope to eat at the Gilpin Hotel before I depart the Lake ...
... by then we were nearly back in Keswick, so Gregg's it was for a sausage roll, a shared chicken baguette (last one left!) and a cream cake. NOW it was time to battle the hill back up to the site......... After much huffing and puffing we arrived at the top triumphant, legs burning after walking about 12 miles, collapsed in a heap with a beer, well it was 4.30pm. Spent our last evening watching a good film and chilling ...
... was full so ended up driving a couple miles up the road and parking along side Crummock Water. Made our way along the shoreline and around to a lovely cafe where we had tea and cake, much hilarity was had as we had read a sign saying make sure the people are sitting balanced on the picnic bench otherwise it may tip, we found this to be true when I got up to go back in the cafe and Debs n Howard nearly ended ...
... in the little stream we were walking over and Meg the dog was not impressed with the sight of her treats floating down the side of the hill, trying to hoover them up before they disappeared. Eventually made it down to the bottom and over the smallest bridge in Cumbria, stopping again for more photo opportunities. Found a path down the side of the hill through some woods which bought us out by a youth hostel which sold tea and cake, so we just had to stop for lunch, ...
