“Great place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

We stayed at the Woodlands for 3 nights. What a lovely place. The staff were so helpful and very happy. Great breakfast and we had fantastic afternoon tea. The Hotel is in a good area and we will hope to get back there in September. Really do recommend this lovely place. Cherry and Dave

Room Tip: We had a twin room at the front of the house and although the road was busy outside, it was absolute...

This hotel is located in an excellent location mid way between Windermere and Bowness. The staff were friendly and pleasant, the food was excellent, the room was very comfortable and clean and there was ample car parking space. The hotel also has the benefit of spa facilities at a nearby hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

Really lovely weekend at The Woodland Bowness, the rooms were lovely and we couldn't have been better looked after by the staff. Would definitely recommend!

My partner and I stayed here for two days and found it to be a lovely welcoming break. The couple who run it were really nice and friendly as we're the staff. Room was to a high standard and the full English breakfast was top notch. Best of all though was the afternoon tea we got as part of the deal - a mixture of finger sized salmon, ham and egg sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, fruitcake and shortbread biscuits. Highly recommended. Good location too halfway between Windermere and Bowness. Lots of car parking space on site too.

The Woodlands hotel is in such a conveniet location, easy walking to Bowness or Windemere.

I stayed here with my fiance to celebrate our recent engagement and can't fault any aspect of our visit. The staff were fantastic, friendly and very knowledgeable about the local area. The room was spotless and the food was excellent quality and very tasty. We booked through Travelzoo on a special offer including tea & scones on arrival and an afternoon tea the next day which were both very good.

Woodlands is in an ideal location with both Bowness and Windermere an easy walk away and Keswick just a half hour drive.

All in all it was a lovely break despite the typical fickle lakes weather and I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel will be quieter as it is on quite a busy road, however we were in a f...

Had a lovely one night stay with my Husband. Very nice and quiet hotel. Impressed with the two girls who took care of us during our stay as they were so pleasant and polite.
Very clean rooms and gorgeous hearty breakfast. Would stay again. Would have been nice though to order a sunday newspaper......

Room Tip: room was a little small but otherwise lovely.
