Reviewed 31 May 2012

The property is gorgeous from the outside... and that's about it. The staff who checked us in were less than welcoming. I was shocked when I got to my room because the furnishings/drapery/bedding were so out-dated, especially compared to how beautiful the grounds look when you're driving up to this hotel. This felt more like a quaint B&B than a hotel, which is great if that's what you're expecting to check into. On the plus side, parking is free and the on-site restaurant serves a great breakfast.
I'm not sure if I caught the staff on an off-night because I'd read some glowing reviews before making the reservation.

I have stayed in the suites, eaten in the Cafe many times, arranged meetings, workshops and functions, and been a speaker at luncheon meetings. Every aspect of the experience has been excellent, from the initial contacts, to planning the functions, executing the plan while accommodating all needs, as well as welcoming and professional service from all staff, with excellent food, appetizingly displayed, Whether looking for a quiet dinner for two, a celebration or a wedding, Windermere Manor should be top of mind.

My boyfriend and I have stayed at this hotel twice. The hotel is tucked away in the woods but only seconds away from the main city which is more than convenient. We were able to take a short drive to the mall and come back for a romantic dinner in the hotel's restaurant, The Windermere Cafe. I had the duck confit and my boyfriend had the lamb and both were made to perfection and beautifully displayed.

This hotel often has events on a Friday night and when we attended there was a cover band for The Police and they were phenomenal. The price was reasonable for a night out for two.

Our room was spacious and just recently updated. Looking out the bedroom window allowed us to watch the wooded area and listen to the peaceful sounds of bird's chirping and no traffic, a rare occasion while in the city of London.

The following morning we went to the Grand Hall for breakfast. Beautiful wooden beams and a gorgeous view. We proceeded to walk the wooded trail that was visible from our bedroom window.

An added bonus is the bee hives on site, providing the hotel with all natural soap, shampoo and in room products. You are also able to purchase fresh made honey on site and it is glorious.

The staff is courteous and more than willing to help you in any part of the hotel. The hotel is clean and welcoming at every turn.

All in all, I would recommend this location to any couple, family, or group wanting to go into a secluded wooded wonder with all essential amenities only moments outside of the "country bubble"

I have often attended the Windermere Manor's Modivational Speaker Series. The event is consistantly well organized and includes a delicious, reasonably priced luncheon. I am always impressed with the beautiful surroundings of this elegant Manor.
On several occasions I have met with friends at the Manor's Cafe for lunch. As expected, the food is delicious and the staff helpful and friendly.
I highly recommend this lovely venue for business or pleasure.

My husband's retirement party was a great success in the Great Hall at Windermere Manor. There was lots of room for the stand-up reception in the beautiful room containing a large stone fireplace and wooden beams and a bank of windows opening onto lush gardens. The hot hors d'oeuvres were varied and very tasty and service were excellent.

Stayed here 2 nights. The hotel was absolutely beautiful, and spotlessly clean. Staff were cheerful and professional. My room was amazing, We were upgraded at check-in. Loved the bathroom with the jacuzzi tub (which I took full advantage of while I was there!) Food and conference facilities were very good. I was amazed at the number of working fireplaces around the hotel, and absolutely loved the faint aroma of wood smoke near the hearths. I hope to return again, for a longer stay, with my family

You drive up the lane and feel like you are stepping back in time...to a place where the smiles welcome you and you can smell the aromas of fresh, homemade cooking. From the moment you enter the huge wooden doors, into the awe-inspiring great room, you are surrounded by a feeling of excellence. The beauty truly does take your breath away and the people create a special experience. I have been fortunate to use Windermere for both business and personal and can speak highly of both experiences. It's a must on your list and make sure you see the bees and then try some of the beer made from the hard work they do!
