Booked a budget room,well worth the money.Really nice staff,food etc.
The breakfast was very good. Free parking
Not enough clothing space if staying more than one night.
Walking distance from the lake. Excellent breakfast and lovely staff.
Could have done with more towels (only one hand towel) + better range of teas/coffees/hot chocolate in the room.
Great location, just a few minutes from the station. Very comfortable stay and within walking distance of all Windermere facilities, shops, pubs, restaurants etc.
good hotel near train station, would use again
no wifi (not sure if it was just for that weekend), no separate reception area (it was in the pub, the bar man serving as the receptionist ast well)
There was no hot water, no free wifi as described and our room was not ready and/or cleaned when we arrived. No offer of compensation was given.
The room was comfortable, as was the bed
The hotel had no heating or hot water due to a broken boiler and they did not explain this to us on check-in, which would have given us the opportunity to find alternate decent accommodation. It had been broken all day but by the time we learnt of it was too late and we were stuck. We had a very long, cold and sleepless night. The staff were rude, threating and had not an ounce of compassion. The manager was no where to be found most of the time leaving the staff to deal with us with no power to help us. Overall it was a horrendous experience and I would advise anyone again staying with them
Nice modern rooms.
We had no hot water or heating for the stay. We were glad we had only booked one night. Upon complaining we were told it was the weekend and no plumber could be found. The general manager was not in until Sunday evening
Dog can walk in to the restaurant there should be different part for dinning.
The room was clean, staff very friendly, food was brilliant especially soup I the day! Freshly made! Loved it!
Good breakfast and clean
The room was dated and looked like a standard 'pub room' - a few chip and knocks here and there. But that's really what we expected given the type and price of the room, so we're just nit-picking!
Staff were really friendly and the food was fantastic. The location was great, only a few minutes walk from the shops and lake-front. The pub is also well stocked and had a good atmosphere.
Great Food Friendly and very helpful staff
For £70 i dont expect a room where you really couldnt swing a cat.We have stopped in many hotel rooms,But its the first time ever where the room was that small it didnt even have a wardrobe in it..very poor
The breakfast was advertised as a contintenal breakfast,but came as a full english.It was good
Matress could do with replacing.
Excellent wee pub with great food and the staff were extremely friendly! Also place is very clean.
Room was clean and very comfortable
Some people will always find something to complain about very sad!
Staff just could not do enough easy atsmosphere.m breakfast was good and evening meals were good portions.
The lack of things to dislike
Atmosphere, room, building, staff, everything really.
It was possibly too disorganised for some but I thought everyone there was great.
The staff and the people generally who were around. My first room had a faulty radiator so they moved me to a double. They were a bit short staffed and everyone from the team seemed to be pitching in. The cider was great and the bar had a real locals feeling to it.
Room was not what it was how it looked in picture. They got our breakfast wrong and it was cold. Our room smelt of chlorine and didn't feel clean. Some staff helpful some not. Tv did not work properly. Not worth the money we paid.
Great location evening food was nice.
Main bar toilets were dirty Shower and toilet were blocked however this was fixed promptly Loud music and football on tv in bar resulting in us eating elsewhere Breakfast room was closed so there was breakfast tray in the room but nowhere to sit and eat other than the beds Reception area was closed so had to check in via a busy bar full of men watching football and shouting at tv Part of car park looked like a car salvation yard Paid £100 for one night in January but would of experienced better at premier inn Wood burner fire was not lit despite being feature on website No one around when checking out so had to leave room key unattended on wooden sideboard near front door
Free pool table Staff were polite
Great hotel, friendly staff, very clean - we were extremely impressed and will definitely be staying here in the future. Free off road parking was also a bonus especially in Windermere! My only qualm was that the wifi didn't reach the rooms, but we were informed on arrival that they were in the process of refitting it, so I dont think that this would be an issue in the future, just the unfortunate timing of our stay! Brilliant hotel and great value for money - would definitely recommend.
Couldn't Find any info about the free wifi in the room not in the downstairs facilities.
Staff very friendly and helpful
Breakfast was very late and I did not get any second day, even though I had paid for it
