I was for 3 nights in the small single room up top. Room and bathroom clean and good size for a single person in my opinion. Great choice for breakfast, very tasty as well, everyone very professional and friendly, great service. Even though I was driving around (parking on site) the location was very good, town centre 5 min walk...

This is the second time I've stayed at the Ravensworth and it sems to get better each time. Last year I had the only (tiny) single room tight at the top, this time I was given a nice double room up just one flight of stairs.

Lovely room, nicely appointed and well equipped, huge bed, very comfy. Breakfast great, excellent choice, plenty of everything. I've only given a rating of 4 stars because our room was on the 2nd floor and there's no lift. We are in our 60's and I have arthritis but as I didn't realise how the hotel was laid out I didn't...

Had another two nights here, it is always excellent, great location, comfy room and bed, Spotless, Fantastic Breakfast, and really great staff. and on site parking, and Nick is a great Host. If you are in Windermere, give it a try. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

We were in a good location to the town, bus & railway stations but our room was small and on the main road which was very noisy. Had to keep the window open because it was a hot room. The breakfasts were very nice and HOT

I was up-graded to a double room (had booked single) which was very nice. There was road noise but that is to be expected when house is on a busy road. Quietened down at night and it didnt prevent me from sleeping well both nights.

We stayed here for 5 nights. Our room like the rest of the hotel was very clean and tidy. Breakfast was good and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast room is a sort of conservatory which is quite pleasant. The location is 5 mins on foot from windermere and the railway station. I would use it again.

Thank Anthony R
