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...

Breakfast was fab, cooked to perfection. Very good service, the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly even going beyond the call of duty. Location was great and we slept really well. However there was a few things that bothered us about the rooms. The door was stiff and could only be closed by pulling very hard which resulted in a... More

My husband and I have just stayed here for a mini honeymoon. We booked it on booking.com and upgraded to the luxury suite for £20 extra. When we arrived we were given the key to our room. We entered the room and were shocked to see that room was very tiny. My husband went to collect our stuff from the... More

I was whisked away here for my birthday weekend, we arrived a little early for check in due to the pouring rain however without blinking we were led through to a very pleasant reception room with lots of Chesterfield chairs .. very classy, but yet relaxed and tradition, while the lady tried her best to get our room ready.

Just come back from a 2 night stay away for my birthday and what a perfect treat away. From the moment we arrived, nothing was too much for the attentive and professional staff who were eager to help and proud of the hotel and the area they are surrounded by; in particular the lovely foreign lady on reception and the...

We found a deal on secret escapes for Woodlands Windermere. We thought it was a great price for 3 nights b&b, tea and scones on arrival, 2 course evening meal on the first night of our stay, 10% off bar drinks, access to the near by spa (although we didn't use this) and 10% off lake cruises. We couldn't fault... More
