Great b&b close to Winderemere station and centre of town. Lovely pub with great food
Unable to checkin or get in until 3pm so we had to walk around town with bags until checkin
We just stayed one night at the Grey Wall the room was lovely and big and clean no complaints it was near the train station
The staff - can't fault them. Very helpful and welcoming. Very dog friendly. Food was excellent. Full English breakfast was included and freshly cooked. All in all an enjoyable stay - I'll certainly go back again.
Found I had to pay £100 deposit (refundable) for having my dog with me. If I'd booked a few weeks in advance I would have received an email advising me of this - as it was I'd booked the day before arrival so got no warning.
Room and bar meals.A no problem mid week stay
thought everything was spot on.nothing was too much trouble for very friendly staff,who also were very helpful.would not hesitate to stay there again.meals were excellent too.
nothing to say in this heading
WINDERMERE: The Grey Walls, Elleray Road Ph. 011-44 1 5394 43741 Couldn’t find this place because we thought it was a B & B in someone’s house, but it was a hotel. The directions need to be clearer. Clean and comfortable. Good breakfast.
Very little parking.
Clean with a very comfortable bed, good quality pillows, duvet, bed linen and towels. Close to shops, bars and restaurants. Friendly staff in the lively bar. Helpful Manager allowed us to check in early as were attending a wedding at 12pm.
Room quite small and smelt a bit musty as it was in a basement.(no: 17) Breakfast ok but not outstanding, especially as there was no butter or other spread for toast, this was totally unacceptable for a tourist hotel. The waitress didn't really apologise just made an excuse that they'd been really busy as there was a large wedding party staying (we were part of it).
Staff we're very friendly, approachable and helpful. Location suited our needs as it was close the church of St Marys where we attended a wedding and was only a short bus ride to the main attractions of Bowness.Bar prices are discounted for residents.
Breakfasts could be better. Black pudding not offered on the first occasion as part of the the full english breakfast . Ran out of butter at breakfast, reason given was because they had been busy ??? Stayed in room number 5 , which had a quirky sloping floor due to age of the property (??) Bathroom would benefit from a more powerful shower ( excercise in the morning was running around in the shower trying to get wet....), it would also benefit from having clothes hangers or hooks in the bathroom. No wardrobe in the bedroom although an open hanging rail was available. Generally all rooms seem to be priced the same although some clearly are better appointed than others.
Attitude of Staff, Helpful. Obliging and Welcoming Breakfast, good choices and well presented
Car Parking restrictive
Clean linen and towels. Comfy beds
Staff not welcoming or interested in our arrival. No loo rolls after having to go down to the public bar both on arrival and when we returned in the evening.car parking shocking - really made our stay anxious as had no choice but to block other drivers in. landlord had a 'take it or leave it' attitude. We shared a twin room - extremely compact, little room for luggage etc. very much overpriced at £70.00 for a single night, We did not sample breakfast as we had to leave before 8.30 am. We would not stay here again.
Everything was great
Staff were polite and helpful.
The bed was like a cabin bed very small in length I had to sleep with my legs curled and kept getting cramp. I went to hang up my hand towel and the hand ring fell off the wall. The cover for the pipes under the bathroom sink fell off onto my foot. The noise from the traffic outside was very loud. When the bar closed, the staff had to bring in all the chairs from outside and this was very noisy. On check out there was no one around other than a young lad who had served breakfast.
We saw improvements from our last stay here which made our stay even better than before. I'm sure that next time we stay more work will have been done.
Parking could be better, but this will improve when the work has finished.
Location it is only a steady walk to Bowness(30-40 mins) where you can get a boat to all lake attractions.The bed was very comfortable,room was very clean and tidy.
Small car park littered with rubbish,staff kept us waiting to check in so she could finish her cigarette,food cold,dogs allowed in dinning area
staff very friendly, nice big room and bed, food great and great location.
my only dislike was no carling or fosters.
price,service and cleanliness
needed a bit more mending in places. Tarting up
Lovely friendly atmosphere. Cosy rooms that were very clean. Gluten free food available (I never get toast for breakfast so this was great), soya milk for my tea! Comfortable bed. Lovely smelling toiletries.
First night I was in a room at the front near the road and I'm not used to the traffic noises but the room was gorgeous and the bed extremely comfortable.
Friendly staff despite being extremely busy Good breakfast Very good value for the area
The staff we friendly,the owners were very nice and made sure I got a gluten free meal.would go back,most enjoyable
The best thing was that the staffs there were very kind and great. We had four super heavy luggages. When we checked-in, one of the staff Chris helped us to move all of them upstairs. We had already told him they were very heavy but he still managed to carry for us. It really gave us a great hand as we only have my dad strong enough to take the luggages up the stairs. It was really impressive for our 1st arrival after a long way on the train, and he's a very energetic and capable staff! Also, there's also another male staff which I don't know his name wearing a red shirt and serving us breakfast every morning, he's also a very kind and responsible staff! On the other hand, the room was very clean, neat and delicate. The bed was very comfortable with nice decoration in the room, and it just made u feel like staying at home. It was quite hard to find a place for dinner at Windermere, so we decided to have it at The Grey Walls. The food on the first day had surprised us with the delicious taste! However I believe there was 2 chefs as the food taste on 2nd day was a bit different. If you met the right chef, you will definitely feel addicted to it, but overall saying, I will still recommend to dine in there. The pub had a nice atmosphere and made you feel relaxing. Last but not least, each door connecting the pub and the living area was well locked. So, you don't have to worry about the security issue.
central location to town, plenty of attractions in the area. pleasant place to stop for a break.
Heard scratches (rats) smelt damp the room wasn't tidy on arrival a big disappointment
Staff Facilities in the room Situated right in the centre of the town
The location was good near to the station. Room was comfortable and clean with tv, tea and coffee making facilities and complimentary toiletries. Dining room was welcoming and traditional. Good choice on breakfast menu but a larger pot of tea would have been appreciated.
First impressions were not good due to the mattresses in the car park which let down the hotel. Shower was a little on the small side and there was nowhere to hang clothes and towels in the ensuite.
Good location, room ideal for just a couple- slightly small but ok for people just being in there to sleep! Breakfast nice also! Staff lovely!
Windows and doors on room didn't lock easily and no remote for TV but nothing too bad!
