I hadn't known before arriving that this hotel is part of the RNIB and all profits go to the charity. Great cause. However, the rooms were average, the food was really not much to look forward to. The service on the other hand was friendly and warm, and the grounds around the hotel were lovely and well kept. If you... More

Stayed in one of the cottages away from the main hotel. Massive room, massive bed, with its own private terrace accessed via French doors from the room overlooking communal garden. Wonderful potential just needed a good clean. Grubby skirting boards lots of cobwebs and black mould around shower base because shower tray didn't empty fast enough. Good choice for breakfast....

This hotel excels in catering for visually impaired but not a hotel I would return to. Food average and not tasty appears to be microwaved as both nighs crisp and dry . Fairly decent location to visit Windermere both the lake and the centre. Nothing to do in the evening and atmosphere in the hotel bar is bleak. A good... More

Good parking, room was of a good size with a comfortable bed. There was no problems with the room other than the garbage collectors at 6am. Food was well presented and tasty. Down side was the stairs and the very heavy doors between areas.

Hotel location excellent for quiet break. Rooms perfect. Price OK for Windermere bar price better than expected. only downside. Breakfast is self service buffet style. No problem with that, but the servery needs to better manned and needs to be larger. If you require fried eggs at breakfast you apparently have to order it/them. Nothing tells you this.

Thank you for your review and I apologise for the shortcomings. There should have been a menu on your breakfast table to inform you how to order other egg types and certainly there should have been staff around. I apologise unreservedly for this and can assure you that it will be rectified. We sincerely hope to welcome you back again... More

The evening meal was delicious , gluten free option available, the price was reasonable. Staff helpful and it is a vision hotel so the tapes people complained about on some reviews... More

Visited here for 1 night and would not recommend or stay again. Hotel very dated and drab, needs major uplift, for prices charged. Food average, beds ok (could hear everything through bedroom walls and from hallway) Staff friendliness being the only positive outcome of our visit.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel and I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. As you will have seen, we have started on an upgrade programme and completed the public areas.
