If you are in the area for walking, then one of the major pluses at The Regent Hotel is the way you get to start the day - the cooked breakfasts are well executed and come in a variety of sizes and add-on, all at no extra cost. From a simple rasher or two of bacon up to a full-on mountain of food, you can be assured of filling up with enough fuel to take on any walk. And while the options are not extensive there's enough here to cater for veggies/vegans too.
Our room was a Garden room (#43) and was very quiet, well appointed and comfortable. My partner had an issue with the rather soft mattress but overall I couldn't fault much. Locationwise, it's good for exploring Windermere but with only one pub nearby, you might end up walking the half mile or so into town in order to find the better restaurants and bars in the area (http://tinyurl.com/98h7c2u).
Not cheap, but not terrible value either.
