We could not have been happier with this wonderful Hotel in the centre of Windermere. Our Son and family gave us 2 nights stay for a Christmas Gift. Food and Service could not have been better. Staff very helpful and pleasant. We will hopefully be returning in 2016 if not before".This was our first visit to The Lake District. .
