The staff were very friendly and helpful; giving us good pointers on what to do in the local area etc. Very nice room with comfortable bed and the breakfast was awesome; both the cooked breakfast and the pancakes were prepared fresh and were of a very high standard. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

This is a very nice up market guest house, however do not be put off by that. The staff are really friendly whilst remaining professional. You cannot get an evening meal or lunch here but the breakfast is second to none, and the variations of breakfast menu will cater for all persuasions. The room my wife and I had was... More

We stayed one night at the Woodlands, which is handy for both Windermere and Bowness. Our room was large, nicely furnished and comfortable, with a sizeable bathroom (bath and shower separate). The lounge and dining room were pleasant, and the breakfast was excellent, with an above-average choice for non-cooked breakfast eaters.

The Woodlands Hotel was every thing it claimed on its website.The owner [Alan],and all the staff are welcoming and cant do enough for you. The breakfast is top class and is enough to last you right through the day. In Windermere town if you want a value for snack try The Little Chippy or Brambles cafe, well worth popping in.

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.

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
