Having just returned home from a two night stay in this bed and breakfast and I can honestly say that I am looking forward to my own bed to night!
I booked this room via booking.com and was told it was going to be a four poster bedroom, upon arrival we were shown through the dining room to what could only be described as the staff living quarters?! The room did not have a room number on and simply said private on the door.
We paid £100 per night for what was meant to be a deluxe double, this was far from I expected. The decoration was cheap, there were numerous stains on the carpet and walls and the wardrobe was simply a rail in the boiling cupboard.
Additionally, the bedroom was located above the car park, currently the weather is 29 degrees, therefore with no air con it meant we had to have the windows open all night, this meant been awoken both mornings by other guests checking out/returning.
This morning, we felt that we had to wait till after breakfast had been served to leave our room and check out as we felt awkward having to carry our bags through the dining area when people where eating their breakfast.
The B&B was not worth the money that I paid and I will not be staying again. However, maybe given a different room this review would be different.
However, on a positive note the staff were very nice, the breakfast was lovely and the location was perfect should you want to be in the heart of Windermere.
