We stayed at the Grey Walls (2 adults 1 baby) when the Coniston marathon was on. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the bar/restaurant served decent food at a reasonable tourist price. They had a good selection of beers. As we were up early in the morning we would have missed breakfast so the chef made us some sandwiches... More

We did not manage to get booked in to the B&B as it was fully booked up while we was staying in the area. But we went it most days to eat as the food is fantastic. The pub is run by lovely people and could not be more accommodating, they are brilliant with the kids, we dont often take... More

We have stayed at this hotel a few times and will keep on returning. The hotel is in a really good location, close to the train station and a short walk from Bowness. The pub first of all is brilliant and has plentiful ales, ciders and all sorts even Iron Brew on tap. The pub is really spacious and comfortable... More

Staff were lovely, food was good when it eventually arrived but sat half hour waiting for breakfast after ordered, Room wasn't brilliant- blinds off or hanging, no where to hang anything. No shelf in the shower to put things on.

We stayed here for a wedding we attended in Windermere we couldn't get in to any other hotel and this offered a cheap price.

Spacious room, friendly staff, good service. offers a generous cooked breakfast. Chris behind the bar was particularly helpful. Would stay there again. Tariff for a last minute walk in was reduced to 70 pounds. Accommodation in this area is quite steep.

Went in for a meal with my husband after overhearing the landlady saying how good the new menu was. I ordered chicken and my husband had fish and chips. After a while the landlady came out to tell us that they had run out of chips and we could have mash or curly fries, neither of which were an appetising... More

We loved it there. The staff was wonderful, the breakfasts delicious, and it was so convenient to everything. I would love to go back and spend more time there. We ate dinner there one of the two nights and had their large steak special, and it was perfect (and so were the chips).

The Grey Walls is a pretty grey building just a short walk from Windermere train station. It is a standard B&B with a lovely bar & restaurant. The best thing about this place though, is the staff. This family-run hotel gives you impeccable service with a smile. No request is too much for the staff there, they even chilled our... More
