Firstly, I do really appreciate for the house and room decoration. Nice view from the window of room and bathroom, beautiful living room and garden.
However, location is not too convenient, quite a long walk from the town centre and need to get a taxi or bus to the Winderemere railway station.
The wifi is not working property either. But the landlady tried to sort it out.
When we arrived at the house, it was around 11:30 am but the check in time had to be 3pm. We appreicated that the landlady allowed us to leave the luggages there. We wanted to sit in the living room to charge the phone (search the google map and traffic) and wait for the extreme heavy rain stop.
However, the landlady said it would disturb other guests who might come to the living room. This sentence was quite disapointed and made us feel not being respected, as we were also the guests instead of beggars. Then we were like `welcomed out of` the house and went into the heavy rain, standing in the middle of the road, freezing, and searched the google map. Obeying the rule might be important, but it is a guest house instead of the court. Condering the weather condition and caring for the guests` needs, especially a senior guest, which would be much more important, when you have the ability to do that.
