Staff where very nice and help full . Got there on motorcycle told best place to park . Food was very good with lots to choose from .
Only thing that could of been better was having to go out side to the pool which though not far was a pain .nice once you there
The very helpful and friendly staff also the lounges which were very welcoming and comfortable. The food was first class nothing was too much trouble for the staff if something extra was needed
The pool area badly needs renovating the beds were very uncomfortable you could feel the springs, however these two areas of disappointment didn't stop us enjoying our stay
Bad foisty smell all around corridors and bedrooms. Daughters room. Sealent around bath was dirty and had loose.
Good location near to the centre. Good breakfast, plenty of choice and as much as you liked to eat. Friendly staff
Thought the hotel was ready for an update, All looked tired but having said that it was clean.
Old fashioned, needed renovating, redecorating throughout. Gad to okay on arrival before we had seen the room or facilities!!
Food was good fab location so so clean lovely.
The staff are so helpful soon as we arrive at the hotel they put all our wet motorcycle clothing in the boiler room for the night. We had two room's booked for five they upgrade to five single room's for the same price, thank's for a great stay and time.
Great view Good food
Location Breakfast Views
Dining options ended too early in evening No WIFI in room
Great location, we had a young baby so great for him, room was good great views of the lake, it was very quiet too which was nice. Staff very friendly and breakfast was a good selection.
Definitely needs updating very old fashioned, tv wasn't good could do with a flat screen and built in freeview. We only stayed two nights but was disappointed that our room wasn't cleaned or bed wasn't made after our first night.
Room was fine Bathroom was a good size View over Lake was wonderful Staff were friendly Breakfast great
The bar - dunno what is going on in there it looks like a 2nd hand sofa shop
Location,large rooms even had a balcony...nice bathroom with good shower
Bar area furniture quite worn but clean
Location & Staff
The view at the front.
Bed like a rock. Drains blocked. Blown lights. Broken buttons on 8" TV- remote doesn't work. No wifi in rooms -limited service on site. Banging on ceiling all night from family above.
The smell of the rooms and furniture. The carpet and mattresses need to be changed.
Spacious bedroom with partial views of the lake. Breakfast, very good choice of food. Only had one evening meal in the hotel, was very good. Swimming pool. Walking distance to the lake. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Having to carry cases up to the first floor before you have access to the lift. Some armchairs and settees in the bar have seen better days. Stair carpet to the games room in the basement badly worn, plus games room really unloved.
Location was good and staff were friendly
The place was damp and dated and needs a complete refurbishment, the room was mot inviting and although the bathroom was clean the windows were disgusting, the breakfast was ok but presentation was poor and Un inviting, you could go to a top b&q for much better accommodation and value for money the hotel seems to cater for large groups looking for basic accommodation
old folks home atmosphere and furniture.
room comfort and excellent bedroom and ensuite . poor tv chanel quality
Size of Rooms Breakfasts
Beds a bit to firm Small Portable TV
Tiny rooms, strange smel, poor equipment, rude staff. Couldn't find anything good. we were trapped in the lift, ok that's fine, but the staff hang off my phone rudely while we were still in the lift ! And no one apologise after that! My little brother were scared. Don't stay here if you want a good holiday.
Room was lovely, Breakfast tasty and UNLIMITED!!!, service was also very good, friendly and polite. Amazing views from our room of Windemere WOW.
The friendliness of all the staff, excellent parking, the views from the hotel, the breakfast and the spaciousness of our room.
Decor a tad dated but it genuinely added to the charm of the place.
Size of rooms Breakfast Cleanliness Comfort Pool a bonus
The hotel was ideally situated within the centre of Bowness. The room we stayed in had a view of Lake Windermere and had recently been refurbished to a very high standard. We dined in 2 nights out of our 3 night stay and the food in the restaurant was excellent. The choice of food at the buffet breakfast was also very good and all of the staff at the hotel were extremely pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be returning to the Windermere Hydro Hotel in the future, and have already recommended the hotel to family and friends.
The only thing we would have liked is a mini fridge in the bedroom, apart from that everything was perfect.
