Very friendly and welcoming. Our room was very Romantic with Spa Bath, Mood Lighting, fab shower etc. I would definitely recommend this gorgeous wee gem of a hotel. Very Central to the Lake and shops as well.

When I booked the fantasy suite I was really looking forward to the visit for months. On arrival, I was given some instructions on where to park the car which was through a locked gate. I had to mess about with a key safe in a car park in the rain trying to gain access which I was not able... More

This place is amazing. My partner and I stayed here three weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I new it was going to be good, but pictures never do full justice. We didn't want to leave. The fantasy suite is fabulous. The mood lighting everywhere, with the surround sound creates the best ambience. The mini bar is well stocked and... More

Amazing!! Loved every second, perfect getaway. Could not fault in anyway, service from hotel on check in very friendly, and every tiny little finishing touch made perfect break. Nice central location but quiet on a night time. Would highly recommend to anyone.

A very intimate, luxurious suite. Sumptuous furnishings, superb technology, from mood lighting to tv in the jacuzzi bath for 2. The rain shower is to die for. Ice maker and tea/coffee making machine. All in all, I looked hard and could not fault this gorgeous suite. It is the smallest of the church suites, but I loved it all the... More

Fellow travellers, on the eternal quest for places to go and things to see, myself and my treasured one went to the lake district for her first ever visit to the area and, in the spirit of pure indulgence,we decided to push the boat out (don't worry, the nautical puns won't stop there) and get a luxury place to stay....

We have stayed at the cranleigh before but thought for our wedding anniversary would give the church suites a go - although a lot more expensive than the cranleigh they are indeed a suite rather than just a room. Couldn't have been better located right in the centre of bowness. Loved it and will return- also enjoyed the fizzy tarte... More

This was mine and my partners second time at the Cranleigh, however this time, we opted to stay in the Indulgence suite as one night special treat, we were blown away by the experience, technology which is so easy and fun to use right throughout the suite.

Stayed in the Opulence suite for 1 night and there are no words to describe how good it is! The Church Suites are in a perfect location right near Costa and lots of restaurants/bars nearby. The room itself had a very modern and contemporary look but the best part was the bathroom with its own spa bath! The idea of... More
