Being a resident of Windermere I've looked forward to visiting this newly furbished hotel. It's great that this iconic hotel is now being looked after. Unfortunately I can't say at the moment that the service or food was great. We arrived at 12.45 for lunch and at 1.10pm still didn't have a menu. It just seemed a little chaotic, it... More

Paid £169.40, two people, one-night B&B. Check in very professional. Booked room with shower but given one with bath, great. New atrium very good. All the neglect of the original owners has been replaced. Sadly that includes the old character and timber wall paneling too, but if you are into the Laura Ashley brand then this is for the hotel...

Thank you for your recent review on Tripadvisor. I am delighted that you refer to the location of the hotel as "one of the best in the country". We are extremely fortunate to have such spectacular, unimpeded views of Lake Windermere and the fells beyond and I too believe that this is a view that can not be rivalled. After... More

The reception area is stunning. As you walk in you are greeted by a beautiful view of the lake. 2 nights in a lake view suite. Room was lovely. Bed comfy. Could sit in the seated area watching the lake change from the bustle of the day through the tranquil evening to the lights at night. Free wifi. Good TV.... More

Yes it's a beautiful view and decor nice - not too Laura Ashley to be honest. However when you ask for a Bloody Mary in a nice hotel, it's a bit disappointing to get handed a vodka and a bottle it tomato juice and that's it!

The parts of the refurbished hotel we saw when we went for afternoon tea were beautiful as were the views of Windermere from the garden terrace. The food itself was average with the air and taste of having been bought from the local shop and presented nicely. The barman (mid fifties) whilst helpful didn't smile once in any interaction. This... More

Thank you for your recent review on Tripadvisor. I am delighted that you found the views to be outstanding from our garden terrace. We are incredibly fortunate to have such spectacular, unimpeded views of Lake Windermere and the fells beyond. Of course, I am most disappointed regarding your experience at the bar and this is something that I will investigate... More

Before booking, be aware that although the Hotel's literature speaks of "a complete refurbishment" this is still a work in progress. Rooms 1-12 do not appear yet to have been upgraded and while waiting to be attended to at Reception one day the receptionist was overheard telling someone on the telephone that she did not know when these would be...
