Was just at the Windermere house for my good friends' wedding. The weather was perfect, the wedding was incredible and the Windermere was okay.
They put on a great wedding and the food was incredible at the reception. However, the rooms were tired. Nothing to fancy. Thought that the rooms had been redone, but didn't seem like they remembered to do the bathroom floor. Still old. The beds were comfortable.
We were not in the room much because the weather was great, so it was mostly good. It was the first weekend of the season, so staff were still learning.
The food options were great, but a bit expensive. The pub was fun, but if your room is near the main stairwell and you want to go to bed before the band is done, you won't. Could hear the band clearly.
We were able to use the paddleboats and the kayaks, which were good. We ended up swimming off the boat docks and not the little beach. The view from the muskoka chairs was nice with a cold beer.
Again, because I was there for a wedding, the experience was all in all great, but not sure I would visit again unless in a large group like we were.
