Just returned from a two night stay. Could not have asked for a more welcoming and comfortable stay. Alan the owner looked after us so well, telling us the best places to walk and visit. His wife Sarah is an amazing cook, the food is exceptional - Fresh, home cooked, flavours and presentation faultless. The girls who served the food... More

Nice comfortable guest house, everything worked, piping hot water all the time we used it. Great breakfasts and the evening meal on our first night was very nice and well cooked, the chicken was succulent and my steak pie was excellent. Nice little bar area. Wonderful, friendly staff, lovely beds and linen, fluffy white towels, shame about the pillows, we... More

We stayed here for two night in October. The staff are friendly and the breakfast was very good. The parking was good and we found it useful to be able to walk to Bowness. One of the rooms at the front of the hotel was comfortable but noisy and the wifi signal was not good which to our teenage kids... More

Overall this is recommended as a place to stay. The location is easy to find, parking is provided and convenient; and walking to Windermere lake and town is OK. Locally places to eat are plenty, and the owner will recommend which we took up and were not disappointed. Breakfast is good, plentiful and well presented. The rooms are well appointed,... More

We stayed here with some friends in rooms 3 & 4 for my husbands 30th birthday. Firstly, I chose this hotel because it was the only one offering a 1 night stay on a Saturday night and for this they should be commended. Both couples in our party have babies so a 2 night stay wasn't possible and other hotels... More

As this was high season and we had only booked our stay 5 nights in advance we were a bit concerned at what we might be in for. We were absolutely delighted with the whole experience. The room was perfect, especially after a very long drive. The proprietor was most helpful and a font of local knowledge. The house staff... More

We have just spent two nights at the Woodlands Windermere and had a great stay. On arrival, the staff were very helpful and friendly and this continued throughout our stay. Before we walked into Bowness for dinner we decided to have a drink in the bar ( the Tom Collins cocktail was very nice). This is where we met and... More
