Reviewed September 4, 2013

I would recommend the Grey Walls to anyone and I have already booked for a return. Please experience it for yourself, you won't be disappointed. I have special needs as regards to food and nothing was any trouble whatsoever for the excellent staff.

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The pub below our room was not as noisy as we expected. Breakfast service seemed a bit disorganized. The bedroom room was comfortable enough and reasonably clean. Staff allowed us to keep our car in the parking lot after checkout until the next visitors arrived. The hotel is centrally situated and close to shops and restaurants.

Staying in Windermere so popped in for a drink. The pub smelt horrid and damp. Children were running around on furniture, appreciate that's down to parents but not a welcoming environment. A shame as a nice looking place

We are an elderly couple who travelled by train to The Lakes& chose to stay for 2 nights at this hotel at the beginning of our holiday.Although it is very close to the bustling village of Windermere it is very quiet. We were helped to our room with the luggage by the helpful staff. The room was a good size & the bed very comfortable.As they advertise their restaurant as having a speciality steak menu we thought we would have to go out for a snack. however we were met in the hall by the head waiter with 3 different menus & were told we were very welcome to dine in the main room which was quieter than the bar The food was delicious & very well cooked. After a very good nights sleep we were served a very good breakfast cooked to order fro a very interesting choice to suit all tastes.When we left we were once again helped with our luggage.Enjoyed our 2 days & would use the hotel again when travelling up by train.There is also good parking available.

We stayed for one night whilst on a walking holiday in the fells. Not to sure what to say about it, best bit, distance from the station. Rooms are okay, the bed needed a valance to hide the stains. Shower was hot very hot or very cold, no inbetween. Staff were helpful, bar is tatty, would I stay again, probably not.

I didn't get the room I requested even though I booked Months in advance. The room I did get was very small and basic for the price paid. Disapointed.
However The Breakfast was very nice and the vegetarian Sausage was the best I have ever tasted.
