We recently stayed at the hotel for our mini honeymoon. The interior is lovely and the grounds are well looked after. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We had dinner the first night and we couldn't fault anything. The food was amazing and the staff were very attentive. We stayed 3 nights in total, breakfast had a huge choice and...

This is a beautiful hotel and the staff are the most hospitable, efficient and friendly I have ever known. Dogs are given their own personal welcome with bowls, treats and a towel. Provision is also made for you to be able to have your dog with you when having meals, great if your pooch is nervous about being left alone....

We had a fabulous afternoon tea here. Everything was perfectly executed. Nice touch getting to choose the teas from sample box. The scones were the lightest and crispiest ever. The balance of savoury and sweet well measured. Highly recommend a treat and use group on to get a discount!

We visited Rothay Manor on a beautiful afternoon in May. The rhodededrons were in bloom and the Hotel looked very attractive from the outside. We received a warm welcome and were shown into a very comfortable lounge with large windows overlooking the garden. My husband and I were accompanied by my parents and we all agreed that our afternoon tea...

We stayed here for 2 nights on a secret escapes deal. The hotel is a little old and tired in places as some of the reviews say but...... the service was excellent from the minute we arrived, the food was very good, the room was very clean with good quality toiletries and lovely fluffy towels, and the facilities were everything...

We were welcomed by a pleasant lady, Three of us were booked for Afternoon Tea, which was delicious. The selection of savouries was imaginative, the plain + fruit scones as light as air. The dish of jam was small so didn't really have enough for three of us, the clotted cream quite sufficient.There was a varied selection of delightful cakes...

We'd been to the Rothay Manor before, but not recently. We booked for Afternoon Tea after purchasing a Groupon voucher and what a treat it was. Unusual savouries, the best scones We've ever tasted and delicious bitesize cakes. A wide selection of teas and plenty of it and perfect service. The decor is fresh and very relaxing. I would recommend...

Really enjoyed a two night stay at Rothay Manor. Great location for visiting the lakes, surrounded by beautiful scenery. Our room was extremely comfortable, perfect. The food a work of art with wonderful flavours. The service was excellent, nothing being too much trouble.... A super experience!

This place is just getting better and better. On arriving you will notice the ample car parking which is rare in this area. The reception at the hotel is fabulous and we dealt with Peter who was very friendly, helpful and full of local knowledge about the area. The hotel has had some work recently and it looks amazing, the...

Came as a treat for our Wedding anniversary. Didn't know what to expect as we arrived but we were greeted warmly. We have a little dog and we were invited to sit down in a spacious, warm lounge area. Lots of lovely teas to choose from , I chose the 'rosy fig', my husband the 'Full English'. We were given...
