We stayed at the Windemere while we were moving our daughter home from school. I have stayed her previously and although the hotel is very date, it is quaint and charming. Upon checking in we were advised that as our daughter was a Western student, we would not have to pay the extra $17.00 for her to stay in our suite. That was nice. Later in the evening, we noted an odor from the room that smelled like dirty feet. We later determine that the odor was coming from the carpet. The toilet in our room did not flush properly, only flushing while we stood there and held the handle down. Upon taking showers the next morning, when I took my shower (second of the morning) the barely warm water eventually became cold and I ended up taking a cold shower. My daughter was unable to shower as the water was too cold. When we checked out I informed the front desk clerk who advised that they were aware there was an issue with the plumbing and that a plumber had been called. She initially offered to provide us with a discount on the bill...until she noted that we were not charged for our adult daughter staying with us....which when we were given the discount we were led to believe that it was a perk for Western students!!! Needless to say, for $140/night, I was not impressed and probably will not be back to stay here. We previously have stayed at the Lamplighter while in London and will most likely return to staying there as we always know we will be satisfied. Too bad because the Windemere seemed to be a great alternative.
