Reviewed 18 October 2017

Yes this hotel is under renovation, but price relates to this. We stayed again on Monday this week, staff could'nt do enough for us. Pool was great, food was really good both evening meal and breakfast and service was great. Room was a wee bit dated but comfortable and we were told that rooms are being updated a few at a time. There was a bar and restaurant. Staff are coping. We saw no signs of any noise disturbances etc
Cannot wait to return. Thank you staff for looking after us and our grandson.

Stayed: October 2017, travelled with family

I know this hotel is being renovated but it should never have got in this extremely tired state...... Very poor state and with a top dollar price, maybe these places just know they are going to be busy because of the location......

We stayed for two nights during the hotel’s ongoing refurbishment. We were allocated room 101 directly above the pneumatic drill being used below in the public area. I complained and we were moved to a room at the back of the hotel which was much quieter, although this ‘four poster bed room’ had a broken sink, lack of toiletries, broken handles on furniture, black mildew on all windows and room ceilings. The rooms are tired, with bathrooms that need completely refurbished. The public reception area and brasserie are being improved. The saving grace of this hotel was the brilliant swimming pool and the refurbished dining room (but peculiar tables, far too high). The food needs a bit of finesse and less in amount. Staff were very friendly.

Friendly welcome on arrival and lift to first floor. Room was nice but mould on the ceiling and walls in bathroom which is my main concern - white vinegar kills this! Think when renovations are finished it will be much better. Had a drink in the bar and the staff are very friendly but it felt like we were in a barn.

Thank you for your feedback relating to your stay. Apologies for the issues you encountered and I will certainly look into this. The hotel is undergoing refurbishment so we have had to move our bar area into the function suite so apologies for the odd layout. I hope to welcome you back once the refurbishment is complete.

We stayed at Stonecross Manor Hotel in Kendal for one night in September while on the way up to Scotland. The hotel was easy to find on the outskirts of the town, about 20 minutes’ walk from the centre. We had a lovely welcome from the girl at reception and we were allocated Room 116 on the first floor. They did have a lift. It was a quiet, comfortable room with plenty of space plus a sitting area. It was light and airy and had the usual TV, hairdryer, tea/coffee making facilities, iron and ironing board. There was a nice bathroom with shower over the bath, a few complimentary toiletries and lovely thick bath towels.
There was a lovely menu for dinner. The food was good, beautifully presented and the staff were great.
Breakfast the next morning was extra to the room rate. It offered a good selection of hot food and a reasonable cold buffet
There was supposed to be free Wi-Fi in the room but we were told that, as they were having some refurbishing work, it was only available in the public areas at that time.
There was ample free parking. Would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.
