Stayed last night with my family and after asking if they could improve their price as it was last minute, I was informed £95 was a discount on £129 usual nightly rate! Room was average as was the food, can see why Travelodge are so successful now for a much more reasonable price

The premier room was spacious with a view over the town towards the lake. The bathroom was of a good standard. However, we felt the it catered more for the coach trip customers. The service at breakfast was very slow and one morning can only be described as chaotic. We waited 15 minutes for a pot of tea, and were... More

The Superior Room supplement that we paid was worth it. The room was spacious, with a good view, and it had a large, very comfortable bed. The en-suite was excellent too. The only negative elements to the room were that the window was not double-glazed the (wooden) frame needing replacement. Also the lighting was not good for reading. Wi-fi was... More

We chose to stay at the Windermere Hotel as it is just across the road from Lakeland Plastics and as my wife is an avid shopper there it was ideal for us. It was also very handy for the train and bus station and for those keen walkers it had mountain paths at the back and a road walk to... More

We chose the hotel for walking distance to the train but were pleased with our choice even after later looking at other options. The room had been newly decorated the staff was wonderfully helpful, the breakfast fresh and with ample choices.

Lovely hotel situated at the top of Windermere village, directly opposite the railway station and bus stops. It has pleasant views but it's quite a steep walk up from the village to the hotel. My single room, at the front of the hotel, was very clean and adequately furnished, the bed and pillows really comfortable. Small but adequate bathroom with... More
