Stayed here on a Shearings trip to do 3 days hill walking in February. Every aspect of the hotel was first class, the rooms, the restaurant and food were the best we had experienced on our many Shearings trips.My only minor gripe was the narrow bath with the industrial sized vertical grab rail which made showering somewhat difficult as to...

we upgraded our room which made a difference. Very quiet. Could do with some background music. Food was grand for the money. Enjoyed all the fish. Staff we helpful and friendly. No good for people with mobility issues as it is uphill. Some lovely walks right on the doorstep. Service was good.

Last minute trip saw us booking into the Windermere Hotel. Reception staff very helpful but the accommodation was rather disappointing for such a big hotel. Shearing tours uses hotel regularly and due to large number of customers the food for full paying customers was extremely disappointing. Don't mind paying for quality food but this was far from quality. Reception and... More

Great weekend break with friends. Good clean and warm hotel with friendly staff. Wide choice of meals to suit all. David Ilkley. Would go again.A good base for exploring the lakes and we had beautiful views of the lake. Parking cost £5 per day but was worth it not having to worry about parking anywhere else.

We had a wonderful break at The Windermere Hotel, made special by the staff who took great care over my gluten free diet requirements. I was very pleased to get a good selection of gluten free food whilst there. Generally the staff were friendly, professional and polite.
