We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom cottage which is 2 storeys with kitchen and living room upstairs. It's decorated quite well although is a little tired in places. There were some initial cleaning issues, which were cleared up in a fair time frame. The setting for the hotel is spectacular with views across the lake to...

We stayed with our 2 children in a bungalow behind the main property and loved our stay. The original building is just gorgeous and the setting is idyllic. The rooms were very clean, great decor and well maintained with all the amenities you could want (loved the whisky dram!). We dined in the restaurant and the food was truly spectacular....

Last visited here about 5 years ago on a gourmet weekend. It was then under the management of Andrew McPherson who has since left. We always planed to come back and had an excuse to do so. Treated us to a suite in the main house rather than the modern ones in the grounds. The view was amazing & the...

It's surprising how different people visiting the same hotel at the same time can have such different experiences. Some recent postings indicate poor customer service which was the opposite of what we found. I will agree that there was an impression of the hotel being understaffed which meant that some individuals were multitasking to a greater extent than you would...

The room and hotel are pleasant, as is the location. The food was also excellent, but the service was very very poor. Our room wasn't cleaned (we had to call and request this mid-afternoon) and when finally it was, bathroom products weren't replaced. Food and drink orders were forgotten or came incomplete, and the wait to be served was extremely...

Hugely disappointing stay at this overpriced hotel, we were so looking forward to our stay here - a little bit of luxury we imagined! How wrong we were. Despite having requested a ground floor room (travelling with elderly Mother) we were put up in the 'gods' and Mum almost needed oxygen having climbed 2 very steep flights of stairs. Thankfully...

Our first visit specifically to dine and enjoy the taster menu by head chef Jake Jones,having sampled his creative menus at a previous hotel . On our arrival we were amazed at the stunning view over Windermere breathtaking !! A lovely greeting from the staff and a super mocktail (no alchohol) called The Cumbrian started evening well ..

I would highly discourage a stay at this property based on the value received for the significant price paid. We were assigned a lodge room. Although spacious and blessed with an amazing view of the Lake, the accolades stop there. I agree with a prior review that the room was extremely dated and worn with uncomfortable bedding, frayed carpeting, and...

We were taken recently to this hotel by our daughter for an afternoon tea. As it was a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon we managed to sit outside on the terrace with a very good elevated view overlooking Lake Windermere. Sandwiches comprised of cheese and pickle, ham and salmon all in thick cut bread. They came with the crusts on and...
