Had a very enjoyable 2 night stay with my parents. Excellent location with free parking so walking to both Bowness and Windermere very easy and convenient. Room was very clean, breakfast were excellent and staff were all friendly and obliging. Have already recommended to family.

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. We had one of the rooms on the third floor, it was a little warm but with the window open this wasn't a problem. The room was perfect for us. As some guest have already said the bathroom was a little small but this didn't bother us. Service from all... More

We stayed in room 2, an impromptu visit as we had booked elsewhere but there was a mix up. The room was well decorated if a bit small, bed was comfortable. Bathroom although the shower was good the room was tiny. Breakfast was very good in a lovely area. We would stay again but probably ask for a larger room.... More

This certainly isn't a five star guesthouse and it is annoying that it is marketed as such, as it is very deceptive. Hotel decor is poor- cheap furnishings, wallpaper peeling and generally in need of a good freshen up internally, as it is quite dated. We stayed in room 10 which was on the small side and a bit cramped,... More

This was our first stay at Woodlands, but it won't be our last. The room we stayed in was No 16 which was in the courtyard. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, pointing out good places to eat and visit. We would definitely recommend the Woodlands and we will definitely will be... More

I have just spent 2 days at Woodlands. Overall this was not a bad stay. This is a five star guest house a few minutes walk to Windermere and my stay was on one of the hottest weekends of the year so far. ( Hot). We had room 12, which was an attic room, which we found was quite small,... More

This was the worst break I have had this year. The room was small and you couldn't swing a cat in the bathroom. There were also a bunch of loud, rude people staying that would keep us up every night until the early hours of the morning. The manager made no attempt to throw them out even though he admitted...

This was our second two night stay at Woodlands Windermere. After travelling up to the Lake District from London, we couldn't have asked for a better place to relax. On this our second visit, my partner and I brought my parents, and so we stayed in two of the premier rooms. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. My parents... More

Having read a lot of the reviews on this hotel, I have to say that most of what is said is true. The guesthouse has good points and bad points but overall is advertised and marketed as something much higher class than it actually is which lets itself down, as guests arrive expecting a 5 star experience but receive something...
