    The Feature Suite is the best view of Lake Windermere and Bowness. The view was breathtaking and the hotel had so much history. It was very easy to access all the stores, cruises, and pubs locally. I will come back for this room.

    The pool is available for non-residents, including children but you will have to purchase a day pass at the reception of the spa.
