This is the fourth time we will have stayed at the woodlands and it's been good every time. We normally travel to the lakes once a year for a weekend and a couple of year ago our usual hotel was full so we tried the woodlands and never looked backed.The staff are very good especially the girl from Hungary not...

Spend a few days here while visiting the Lake District. Down the road a bit from central windermere half way to Bowness thus small relaxing walking to reach both centres. Accommodation is spacious, clean, modern and functional. Breakfast times are shorter and later (8.30-10) than perhaps other places but the quality of food and service is very high. Highly recommend.

Stayed first weekend in July. Warm pleasant welcome, given a map of the area and a discount off boat tours and showed to our room (4) given wi fi password which seemed a bit hit and miss throughout stay, as it was a leisure break it was not a major issue. Room was clean and pleasantly decorated, A few small... More

We had booked a single night through a booking website, in order to break a long journey, and to allow my partner to experience a taste of the Lake District, as she had never previously visited that part of the country. Due to a change of plan, we decided to extend our stay to three nights, if it were to... More

We stayed for a long weekend in the suite behind the main hotel. The hotel is very nice and well located. Its a short walk down into Bowness (5 mins) and has its own (slightly tight) on-site car parking. Staff are friendly and helpful. Our room was large, though as it was located below the dining room and the floor... More

Many thanks for taking the trouble to review Woodlands, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry you were disturbed in the morning. The dining room above is unoccupied until at least 7.45 and breakfast does not start until 8.30 so am not quite sure where the noise came from but it definitely wasn't footfall at 6 am. Apologies...

We stayed here for 2 nights as a family group (there were 4 couples) and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The guest house is handily located on the main road between Windermere and Bowness but the traffic noise was negligible. The rooms vary in size but all are tastefully furnished and are both thoughtfully and well-equipped; indeed, my wife... More

Lovely guest house, staff were lovely and helpful. However was not able to sleep on both nights due to the pillows being so flat, we had 3 each, and still very flat, when asked for more we were given the same quality, which was worthless. Breakfast was wonderful, place very clean. We stayed in room 8. Very hot room, bathroom... More

Thanks so much for taking the trouble to review Woodlands, you will be delighted to know we listened to the pillow comments and have now bought new pillows for all rooms. It's so difficult to get the temperature right in hotels, we never ever want anyone to be cold as we always feel it's easier to turn off heat and... More
