Just had a wonderful Windermere break! The weather and scenery were sublime and being based at Oakdene apartments with its homely feel and convenient location near local shops, restaurants and places of interest made for a totally relaxing and enjoyable experience. Free Wi-Fi and parking and friendly service all contributed to a great time for all the family. T.Brown

Comfortable and quiet in a convenient location near to the shops and supermarkets. The first floor apartment was bright and spacious. The owners were very helpful. The only problem was with the wifi. The hotel description says "Free Wi-Fi is available but not guaranteed in all rooms". There seems to be a problem with the wifi repeaters, as we could... More

just back from Windermere and stayed at Oakdene again and found it as good and if not better than last year. Their helpfulness and assistance together with their local knowledge made our stay just perfect. We would have no hesitation in recommending "Oakdene" as the perfect place to stay with free parking and wifi .

Oakdene is a very handy place to stay. The location is brilliant being only a few hundred yards from the Main street in Windermere. The 5 bed apartment we stayed in was extremely clean and well equipped. The Landlady was very helpful and chatty. The décor is 80's ish and very homely. Will definitely stay here again and recommend it... More

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
