The Cedar Manor Hotel & Restaurant, which has a picturesque location 10 minutes' walk from Lake Windermere, holds three AA Red Stars -- indicating that the property has Inspector's Choice status and offers "excellent levels of quality" and "outstanding levels of hospitality and service". The hotel is the highest ranked in Windermere on TripAdvisor, and is described by The Daily Telegraph as having a "classy, contemporary edge".

This is an excellent spot for walking -- Lake Windermere is less than a quarter of a mile away via a nearby bridle path and the town centre is less than 10 minutes' walk away. Ambleside is a 10-minute drive in the other direction; a bus stops right outside the hotel gates. The property has storage for bikes if you are bringing your own.

Built in 1854 from local slate, Cedar Manor has 10 good-size rooms, which are named after nearby lakes and fells, including Coniston, Windermere and Langdale. The décor is pretty, with furniture made by local craftspeople, and rooms include a fridge with fresh milk for tea and coffee.

In the mornings, a cooked breakfast is whipped up by owner Jonathan to order. The restaurant serves modern British fare. It is also open to non-residents so pre-booking is recommended, and (unusually for a small hotel) room service is available. The restaurant closes for the winter period at the end of October. The bar remains open all year round, and is a pleasant spot for an afternoon or pre-dinner drink, with a good selection of local ales, whiskies and gins available.

This place is a little Gem! You can not fault it atall! It’s smaller than it looks on the photos on website. The bar/ lounge is very small And cosy and quiet so if you want a lively bar this isn’t the place for you but Windermere is just around the corner so a short walk or taxi ride. Rooms are amazing! Everything you could possibly wNt is there! Perfect Bed and bedding top quality. Bathroom amazing with extra little touches and a fab shower, easy controls. We had room miller ground with a bay window with window seat. Stunning decor. Fresh milk in fridge. tea and coffee/ hot choc and biscuits. Easy control on radiator for heating. Lighting for us ladieswas so we’ll thought out! Extremely impressed! Mirrors everywhere we need them with amazing lighting for each. Sockets placed perfectly too. Incredible interior designer. Sewing kit, shoe shine kit clothes brush, hairdryer, dressing gown. Coat hooks near door and boot shelf. Love love love Cedar Manor hotel. Breakfast. So so delicious and room fab. Staff can’t do enough for you.A La carte breakfast cooked to order.
