Went to London with a group of friends for an engagement party. Coming from a big city (Toronto), we chose the Windermere because it seemed to be scenic, quaint and therefore the perfect hotel for a weekend getaway/mini-vacation.
Pros: Hotel was quiet as expected, it was nice to go back to a calm atmosphere after a wild and rambunctious engagement party! The room was spotless and the beds were very comfortable, I personally had an excellent sleep. The room was also quite large. The hotel and the grounds were very charming and elegent with a lovely old-age, Victorian feel. Very relaxing stay!
CONS: The lady at the front desk (should have caught her name) was incredibly rude. Immediately was judgmental towards my friends and I because we were younger than the majority of the hotel guests. Warned us against making noise and that only a maximum of two people were allowed in the room. We assured her that we would not be breaking any of the "hotel policies. However, she still maintained an attitude toward us through the remainder of the trip! It was quite offensive as we were paying customers as well and should have been treated with the same quality of respect as the other hotel guests!!!More
