A lovely stay, staff very friendly, room was spotless and very spacious, minutes away from Windermere town, breakfast was delicious, onsite parking (free), WiFi was very poor, will be visiting again very soon

Dear David, thank you for your review. We do have good wifi access in the guest lounge, due to age of the building it has really thick walls, which at time affects the strength of the wifi signal in some bedrooms. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! More

I had been looking forward to staying at this hotel as our room had been upgraded and we had found a very good price by going directly to their web site. The room was very nice, up two flights of stairs and I don't recall knowing that there was no lift before we arrived. The bathroom was especially nice being... More

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. There is parking space which is handy. Also the rooms are nice and clean. I was surprised as the full English breakfast with toast cereals was included in the price. This was a nice surprise at the end of a lovely trip. Free WIFI too.

Dear Matt thank you for your review. Having a car park is very useful for our guests especially being so close to the centre of Windermere and just over a mile to the Lake. So pleased that you enjoyed our breakfast, which is included in our rates along with free wifi. More

Had a lovely stay here with my partner for 4 nights, great value for money. We had a warm spacious room with a full English breakfast included. The breakfast also had kippers on the menu which I think are great! The location is great location too, in the centre of Windermere and short walk off Bowness (15-25 minutes)

Really good B and B in a great location in Windermere. The rooms are tidy and the breakfast is excellent. Check in was nice and smooth and the staff were helpful. There were a number of overseas visitors and all were made to feel welcome. Bed was nice and comfortable also

Just returned from a weekend break at this hotel. Our 2 rooms were on the ground floor, 1 single and 1 double with en-suite shower facilities. We found both perfectly adequate and comfortable. Being a cold weekend, we were very pleased that both rooms were lovely and warm and we found the beds extremely comfortable. The hotel is ideally situated,... More
