We recently stayed here as a couple with our little dog. He was welcomed with open arms and we cannot fault the stay. We found the whole of windermere welcoming to dogs which was helped by the (un)seasonally nice summer weather we were having. Breakfast was lovely and they even brought a sausage out for our dog. Would definitely stay... More

Dined at the bar because the dining room was closed due to a gas leak and ended up getting some excellent examples of Cumbrian pub fare. High quality Scotch eggs, various croquettes fried in fresh oil, tasty artisanal breads, yummy local cheeses and smoked meats, the pickled onions were a standout. Service was excellent. Bar staff were very friendly, prompt,... More

Check in was easy to do and the receptionist very friendly. The room was spacious and clean. The 'king sized' bed was actually 2 singles pushed together with king sheets over - ok but not ideal as someone always ends up sleeping on a ridge or you sleep apart. We had some cocktails in the hotel before heading out for... More
