We have just returned from a 2 night break at the hotel which incorporated a lake view room, evening meal with one bottle of free wine, tea and scones on arrival and two breakfasts. Our room was a tad on the small side but perfectly acceptable, it was very clean with a big comfy bed. Our bathroom benefitted from a... More

We stayed at this hotel on the 3rd and 4th June and I believe it best to summarise our views by reproducing the letter I subsequently wrote to the hotel: Dear Sir, As a treat for my 75th birthday, my daughter booked me and my wife, plus herself and her husband, a two day stay in your hotel on the...

Wonderful Windermere hotel overlooking the fells on one side and the lake on the other. Spectacular views, very comfortable bed in large room, first class dining and friendly staff. We hired an electrically motored boat for 2 blissful hours and had a really great time. Later we visited the Beatrix Potter attraction, fascinating for both adults and children alike. We... More

When the weather is fine there are wonderful views from the outside terrace, where you can enjoy a drink or afternoon tea. Rooms are very clean and nicely decorated overall.

We stayed here in March this year and I wrote a glowing report on this hotel. As existing customers, the hotel staff contacted us with a "Summer Madness" offer and we've just returned from 2-night stay. The brilliant offer included a cream tea; bed & breakfast and dinner (both nights) and accommodation in a "comfort" room. We thought the room... More

Booked thro "secret escapes" we were uncertain of what might result especially when the receptionist said that we'd be accommodated in the annexe. Well we could not have been more fortunate, an excellent room with balcony, exceptional views towards and beyond the lake ( oops, 241. The Wadsworth!). Stunning! As indeed was the bathroom - variable coloured mood lighting, deluge... More
