Close to town centre. Good view of the lake from our room. Breakfast was good and staff friendly and efficient!! Plenty of car parking space.
Mattress was like concrete. Faulty radiator thermostat so couldn't turn the heating down, had to sleep with the window open all night.
enjoyed the leisure facilities.will definately visit again.highly recomend.
Close to centre and lake
Sauna was not on Having to go outside to the pool. Noisy toilet Slippery bathroom floor. Carpet was patchy with dirty marks.
For a one night stay we were not only looked after but given a fantastic room with the perfect view over Bowness and Lake Windermere
Location. Food. Great staff
Needs a face lift and could be best in the area
The pool and sauna were very nice, and the view from the lake-facing rooms is excellent.
Showers were poor, games room barely maintained, and the bed in the first room we were shown was unsuitable (although this was quickly rectified).
Views over the lake
Dirty carpet in the bedroom. Reception staff had no local knowledge.
Location and staff
It needs some tlc on the decor
Exellent and old tradidional hotel. Room good size with a view to the lake. Bathroom very big and all renewed. Stayed one night on our way from Edinburgh to Liverpool. Had an evening walk down the hill to village in the evening and a boattrip on the lake next day before driving on. Wonderful, thank you. Hildigunnur from Iceland
Staff, and helpful attitude from all. Bar, relaxing chairs. Swim, lovely and characteristically clean. Carpets and room decoration fantastic. Spartacus corridors and operational lift. Large parking area.
not particularly impressed with the evening meal
friendly staff, good food
climbing back up the steep hill
Location, open log fire, swimming pool-not used by me, view from Room 023. I would stay here again.
Breakfast was ordinary, most had been standing for a while when I ate at 08.30 and I would have liked a freshly cooked, fish option.
Everything, you can even have your dog to stay :-)
Eating out was excellent and so was the variety of shops. Everyone very friendly and helpful
Forgot how hilly Windermere was and was surprised at the amount of dogs about
Location views etc.delightful. room very. Comfortable. Hope to be back soon.
If you had your back to the hotel you could just see Lake Windermere . Leaving
Room smelled dirty and stale. Carpet had been cleaned but was badly stained and worn. Mildew and fungus growing up the old curtain linings. Rotten window frames. Dirty, stained grouting in the bathroom tiles. Dining room carpet held together by masking tape. Dog pee staining a plant pot by the lifts. Breakfast food cheap and nasty. Saw the chef tipping more fried eggs on top of the old cold ones - beware food poisoning! Warned by the receptionist not to park in the lower car park as it may not be safe . Having a shower the water collecting at the bottom of the bath was oily from not being cleaned properly. Worst of all, the shower scalded me. When I tried to run cold water over the scald the water cut out and a few seconds later splurted out boiling water. Unless you are incredibly agile it is not safe! Complained to reception, they told me off for not reporting it! Said they would e-mail manager but I have not had a response. Asked for a reduction in the ridiculously over priced rate but that was also refused.
Breakfast Cleanliness Location Value for money Friendly staff
Location was good.
Got stuck in the lift for 15 minutes, leaving me late for a dinner appointment with business clients. Got woken up by noisy neighbours in the room next to me and the people staying above me from 5am onwards! The rooms are in desperate need of updating (unless you like cheap 1970's décor).
Breakfast was very good
Hotel catered for coach trips Smelt musty old tired decor Tread bare carpets broken tiles on balcony Tv very bad reception In need of a full make over over priced for quality of hotel
Loved the view from bedroom window - bed was soft needed to be slightly harder. Breakfast was of good quality.
The ventilation was poor no air circulated in the room as there was only one small window which was openable - in our opinion it needed air con installed or more of the windows which opened.
Comfortable bed, good size bedroom, spotlessly clean bathroom, polite and attentive staff
Lack of sound proofing - fire doors slamming all through night; paper-thin walls between rooms. Dirty laundry left piled in corridors.
Broken bed changed room.Dogs in rooms.Tubes in oldTV fuzzy picture etc etc etc
