Stayed in Windermere recently and went out for lunch to The Elleray. Could not believe how reasonable the prices were and thought, wrongly, you get what you pay for. What a pleasant surprise though, the food was absolutely superb and home cooked fresh. Really, truly enjoyed a lovely meal. Well worth a visit.

We come here on our yearly trip to Windermere. We originally chose it as we could get our pushchair in easily, but it has become a regular stop. The food is good, a decent price for the Lakes. Plenty of veggie choices - I usually go for the omelette. Staff are always friendly.

The hotel had a perfect location! It was a few minutes walk from Windermere railway station, and it was also near the tourist information centre and Orrest Head, which is a beautiful scenic spot (worth the climb!) The room was a bit on the small side but the bed was big and cosy. The room and toilet were kept very... More

We called recently for an evening meal. We were really impressed with the large portions of home cooked meals. Drinks were pricey, but it is the Lakes. We would definitely eat there again.i tried the chicken curry which was packed full of chicken pieces on a large portion of rice.

We arrived at the Windermere train station exhausted after a 25-hour journey from the States. It was a very easy walk to the Elleroy, even while pulling our suitcases. We were a tad early for check-in but were allowed to leave our luggage at the bar so we could have a look around the town. Our room was very clean... More

Popped into the Elleray after a lovely walk up Orrest Head and sampled a good selection of ales in a comfortable environment.staff were friendly and the premises has original features, giving it a 'lakes' character. Will pop in again next time, hopefully soon. i think it has an outside area too, but we didn't actually see that. There were menus... More

My partner and I stayed with our 6 year old here for one night in April when visiting Windermere. When we arrived we checked in via the people on the bar and were shown to our room,which was a decent sized family room with a good sized bathroom. Good points: The room itself was clean and a good size. Location... More

Got a great seat on the sofas next to the log fire, and enjoyed a few local ales here. Loweswater Gold was my favourite. A very well kept and clean bar area, and helpful bar staff, who advised well on the drinks.
