I my wife and 2 friends have been staying at Stonecross Manor for about 5 years, we always stay at the New Year for 3 days, this is usually 29/30/31 Dec, Stonecross Manor runs a NewYears Eve gala function this is a two night deal you can (which we do) stop an extra night. The deal is for one of the two nights evening dinner is included then the following evening being the Gala night these days also of course include breakfast, the first day is b&b only you can either stay at the hotel for dinner and pay the extra or as we do take the 20 minute walk into Kendal Town for a curry. The total cost for this combination is £510.00 per room. The price is certainly not on the cheap side but overall we have found it reasonable. We do tend to agree with fellow Trip Advisor contributors in that the hotel is in a time warp starting to look very tired in all departments, the whole hotel could do with redecorating, carpets on the stairs threadbare in places, room furniture outdated. In a way I feel a little bit of a traitor by making some of these comments but enjoying the stay that we do have when there. In it's defence the breakfast is very good, self service with plenty of choices in all departments, if you wish for other than the self service there is a table menu. The traditional evening dinner menu once again is very acceptable a good wine menu or if you wish drinks from the bar. We have found the staff usually very accommodating and attentive, the rooms depending on which you chose (we usually ask for 208 and 209 as they are at the front of the hotel) the rooms have ensuite with bath, a good shower, hairdrier, flat screen TV, iron and board, telephone, and of course Tea & Coffee tray. If you are of a tall disposition these 2 rooms may not suit you as the roof pitch in the room is fairly low and I and my friend often forget and pay the price. We have never yet qualified for the bottle of fizz yet probably part of another type of deal. Finally the hotel does have a small dip pool and Jacuzzi. After all of this my wife reckons we will be returning at the end of this year, time will tell.
