“Perfect stay”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We have just returned from a three night stay here and would highly recommend it. Right from the clear personal communication before our arrival to the personal goodbye at check out. The rooms are quiet comfy and very well equipped. The breakfast was delicious, fresh and so much choice. Mary and Phillip so accommodating helpful friendly. While we stayed there were a family with a toddler and baby as well as another couple with a dog and the rooms are so quiet that we were never disturbed by any noise from other rooms during our stay.
It was easy and safe to park out side, there are lots of great places to eat nearby within just a few minutes walk. Would stay again and recommend to enyone.

This is the second time my wife and i have visited 1 Park Road and the standards of excellence have not changed . Both Philip and Mary are lovely hosts. The standard of accommodation is only matched with the very fine breakfasts. We especially liked the comfortable and informal lounge with its full array of books, maps and other tourist suggestions to enjoy with wonderful area of England. Our bedroom was well presented and complete with sofa, TV and of course en suite. This area of Windermere whilst very convenient to all the amenities is very quiet and seems a million miles from main tourist area. We will certainly go again.

My Fiancé and I stayed at 1 Park Road in mid August 2013 and can't provide enough praise on the service and hospitality that we received. The accommodation is very homely with everything you need from maps, books and information to make the most of your stay in the Lakes. The morning breakfasts had plenty to choose from and the menus were printed off daily showing that thought had gone into each meal. The full english is highly recommended!!!

During our short mid week visit to the Lakes my then girlfriend and I got engaged at the top of Scafell Pike. Mary and Phil assisted in making the occasion extra special by placing flowers and prosecco in our room.

We both highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for a more personal touch to an unforgettable stay in Lake Windermere.

We are regular visitors to 1 Park Road. Mary and Phillips always give us a very warm welcome, a wonderful breakfast and excellent conversation. Our bedroom, room 1, was spacious, decorated to a high standard and very comfortable. In the room tea and coffee making facilities were provided with a wide range of teas, coffees and hot chocolates to choose from. The breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, home made marmalade made by Mary herself and Phillips's excellent 'full English' made with local produce. A great way to start the day.

After a day of walking or exploring the wonders of the Lakes District, Mary and Phillips are great hosts and have an excellent selection of wines, spirits and beers to help pass the night away. Mary makes an excellent Pims!

Their superb hosting skills and their wonderful guest house make us come back again and again. We are already thinking of when we will return.

This was are second visit to 1 park road and yet again it was excellent. Both Philip and Mary could not do enough to provide information about local areas/walks, they are very easy to talk to and get along with, as well as providing a great quality service in the hotel. Breakfast was lovely with a wide range to choose from, catering for everyone's needs, including the odd cheeky sausage for Frank (our excitable dog). The rooms were always clean, tidy and well kept. Everything you need to know like checking out times/breakfast times is provided in the red book. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

It was wonderful that Philip, one of the owners of 1 Park Road, was waiting to pick us up at Windermere Station, where we arrived after a long and tiring trip from Toronto. The room we were showed to was bright and cozy and although 1 Park Road is only minutes from the town's center it is wonderfully quiet due to its location on a side road. We loved the electric kettle in our room where we were supplied with a new assortment of teas, coffee and hot chocolate every day. The wide variety of cooked breakfasts offered by Philip and Mary every morning and served in their cozy breakfast room is outstanding. They are genuinely interested in their guests and always had helpful tips and a supply of maps and guide books available for us. We are hoping to return to the Lake District at some point and would definitely want to stay at 1 Park Road again. Philip and Mary Burton are two of the kindest and most welcoming hosts we have had during any of our travels.

Room Tip: Our room was No. 2 on the first floor and was bright and cozy. Any room in the house would probably...

The hotel itself was average and food was okay but the host, Mary, was utterly rude and discourteous. We were mistaken in believing that check-out time was later than 11 and were only halfway through getting ready when we were told to get out immediately and to mind our own business when we enquired when she would need the room by as we would have been ready for 12. I have never been made to feel so low in my life as a customer and I will never be going back there

Oh dear.

We try to have few rules as possible about arrival and checking out time. Some places insist you can't arrive until after 4-00 or have to leave your room each day by 10-00 For us, if you want to arrive early- you could book a Travellers Brunch which some do having come up by train from London or car from Devon- fine. The room may not be ready but we can take your bags, offer you coffee, tea and home made cake and then the rest of the day is yours Or if there is no one arriving then yeah you can stay till your ready to leave but if we are expecting guest we say
11-00 booking out time.

In this case, we had guests who had arrived and were happy to go off for a wander and said they would come back at 12-00. So we had to ask this reviewer to book out as it was 11-00. She assumed our booking out time was 3-00. I can't think of anywhere that would offer such a late booking out time?

Anyhow sorry we upset you
