This is the perfect accommodation for value for money and situation. It is a five minute walk to the centre, to the cafes, shops and restaurants which is ideal. The rooms were comfortable and just what we expected and Irene and Tony are the perfect hosts. We will be back.

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us and that you felt our apartment was not up to your standard. I cannot understand why you would book, probably the cheapest establishment in Windermere, and then expect it to be the best in Windermere. For an apartment for 5 people you paid £115 for one night on a... More

just back from a great stay in Windermere where we stayed at oakdene.

When a hotel picks up their phone and listens to the request by the customer, if they do not want 9 men staying at their hotel then they should not say yes and take their money. From the get go when the landlady met their customers she was picking out the person who was going to be the 'bad one'... More

Staying there the night before the wedding, advised as we arrived that we were allowed no beer, no food and no noise in a 'hotel'. Woken up numerous times by the psychotic landlady due to the 'noisy' fans and low volume TV. If you looking to stay in the beautiful Lake District, avoid this 'hotel'.

I normally treat these "revenge reviews" with the utter contempt they deserve, TripAdvisor readers I trust you can make your own mind up. My reply is on the review above as this one is written by the same person. More

We chose this apartment as it is one of the few being offered in the lakes districts. The apartments themselves are somewhat dated but are clean and comfortable. Parking on site was a bonus however we had endless trouble with the Wifi so if you are technologically dependant this could pose a problem. The landlady was welcoming and approachable and... More

We visited the Lake District on a Bank Holiday weekend. Because of this we were badly delayed on our trip there.

This is a response to the two identical reviews written word for word by the same person and published on the same day by that same person,I feel this was done on purpose to bring down our grading on TripAdvisor.
