A special venue run by the most wonderful people
Thank you so much for making our special day run so beautifully. The hard work of everyone was appreciated so much. We had the most wonderful time. We realise how lucky we were to have had our day given what’s happened over the last few weeks! ?Our guests loved your hotel as much as we did. They’ve all commented on how perfect everything was... all of them mentioned the fabulous staff and the outstanding food. ? ?Once again thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts. We wish we could do it all again and couldn’t have wished for a more special venue that’s ran by the most wonderful people.Sent on 14/04/2020

Everything was perfect
Booked a 2 night 'just us' wedding package at the Merewood along with close family members. Cannot praise them enough. Everything was perfect for us both. The hotel itself is fabulous in a beautiful part of the Lakes. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Special mention must go to Helen the wedding planner. Helen went above and beyond to make our day a happy one. Thank you so much Helen from both myself and Joy. Special mention also to Mikey. Great guy. Great service. Again, thank you. All our family members were so happy with their rooms and restaurant. Our Bridal Suite (room number 2) was excellent. Food was also first class. Compliments to the chef for the Eggs Benedict at breakfast and the Lamb Henry at dinner. The lamb was a definite hit!! Definitely worth a return visit for a few nights rest and recuperation in such peaceful surroundings.Sent on 14/09/2020

A special time made perfect
We had the best few days of our lives at Merewood this week. The food was outstanding, as was the customer service, staff were simply amazing - nothing was too much trouble.Sent on 23/09/2019
Otto, was fantastic on the day, he has lovely people skills and also photography skills. We are thrilled with the photos he took for us and we will be forever grateful.
Our families were as expected, shocked and nobody had guessed. They've all said how happy they are for us for finally getting around to tying the knot and think what we did was definitely the best way to get married. They thought the Merewood looked beautiful and could see why we chose to marry there.
I know I keep saying it, but we had a very special time made perfect from all of yours and other staffs help and attitude. We've never came across such amazing staff at a hotel and made to feel so welcome and special.
We will definitely be back for our anniversary next year - but might manage an autumn break before that.
