The staff was our first 'wow' moment. They were top notch. Very friendly, helpful and very kind. This factor alone would bring me back to The Windermere. And once we saw the apartment, second 'wow'. So spacious, all the amenities and so clean. Loved the home away from home feeling. And the location was perfect. Loved being so close to... More

Everything was good about this hotel: comfortable room and bed, helpful staff, good breakfast (a hot breakfast to order comes with the room, great when you're in a city). The desk even printed our boarding passes for British Airways, which has that 24-hour window (while we were at dinner).

The Windermere lived up to all expectations read here on the TripAdvisor forum. Aside from its charm and elegance in a perfect location, the real 5-star quality of this hotel lies with its owners. The family and other staff members were exceptional, including the parents, their daughter and the lovely young ladies working so hard each morning in the breakfast... More

We can't fault this hotel. We stayed twice, at the beginning and at the end of our trip, and we would certainly stay again. The rooms were a good size, clean and light, and very comfortable. The staff were always available and always helpful, going the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was of a good standard. Conveniently... More

Spent 2 nights in this beautiful & cozy hotel. Perfectly located near Victoria station. Rooms are very nice, clean with air conditioning & LCD Tv's and they serve delicious breakfast. Very courteous and friendly staff. The owners themselves take care of the running of the hotel & are doing an excellent work. Definitely recommend anyone visiting London.

While looking for a hotel for our stay in London I quickly became overwhelmed so, I decided to take a chance on a Hotwire deal which gave me The Windermere Hotel. The hotel is located in a residential area so it is fairly quiet from street noise. It is also just a 5-7 minute walk from Victoria Station which made... More

My wife and I stayed three nights in early May 2014. The hotel has a mere 19 rooms, but what spacious rooms they are. I wrote in my journal, "Nice room-classic London with a touch of elegance. Clean. High ceiling. Well appointed, albeit furniture showing some signs of wear. Two large windows that fully open. A panel of white shears... More

We recently spent five days in London with our teen-age grandchildren. We all loved the Windermere. Our joined rooms were the ideal accommodation for our family. The rooms were pleasant, the beds comfortable and the elevator spacious. The included breakfasts were delicious and much enjoyed by teen age appetites!
