The room is pretty and comfortable. The full English breakfast offered is tasty. The location is just 10-min walk from Windermere station. Seems the sound insulation is good since we cannot hear any sound from neighbouring rooms. Very reasonable price so highly recommended!

Absolutely a first class hotel. This place has wowed us for 3 years in a row. We could have opted for cheaper places but the hotel, location, excellent breakfast, the staff.... Especially Helen.. Make it worthwhile. This is the best hotel by far in Windermere in our opinion... Trust us.

We arrived a half-hour before check-in time presuming we could sit in the advertised 'relaxing lounge' or have a drink in the coffee bar. As no one in reception, we rang the bell twice but it didn't work so called out. A lady came and Instead of welcoming us she told us we should've rung the bell. She then proceeded...

The management and the housekeeping staff apologise for your room not being cleaned and prepared to our usual high standards. We have today had a staff meeting and discussed all the points you raised in your review and we will endeavor to never let anything like this happen again. We are all very disappointed that this occurred.

No problems with this B+B whatsoever. Arrived on time for check in but room wasn't ready so Helen gave us complementary drinks while we waited. Room on top floor with low ceiling but not a problem as we aren't very tall. Bathroom was lovely. Very modern and clean. Tea and coffee in room. Decent breakfast. All in all a good...

A lovely British lodge with a good cooked breakfast. Located a two minute walk from Windermere village and 20 minute walk from the lake. The main downside, for us at least, was the bed which was topped with a very thick memory foam and not particularly comfortable. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the lodge itself was beautiful.

We stayed here for one night and were pleased we didn't have to stay longer ... The hotel was a good location for Windermere and the car park was great. The building also had a lot of character/potential. There is no way this is a 4 star facility though. - there is no one on the property past 9pm ......

Loved this hotel, downstairs was lovely and our room was nice too, our view was the side of the house but we could still see the road at the front, we was here last October and hoping to return in April for my husbands birthday, hopefully we might get to stay in a room on the top floor this time...
