Fantastic views from this youth hostel let down by an 11.30 curfew, school-like policies, and rude staff. If you only want families to stay why not stipulate this? Bad choice for groups looking for a fun break despite the website description saying it is 'perfect for activity breaks'. Stayed at other youth hostels across this and other countries for similar breaks and found them much more accommodating.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Lake District is a truly beautiful part of the world but like many amazing places, it can get busy. If you want to get the best of the area without jostling with the crowds, head to Broad Oaks Country House Hotel. However, if they are full, then may as well stay here at this YHA. Only 2 miles from Windermere town centre and offering panoramic views, this spectacularly situated hostel is a real gem. There's a lovely pace of life here - great if you want to unwind. We recommend you take a walk through the large wooded grounds and look out for the wonderful inhabitant wildlife. At the end of the day simply relax and enjoy gorgeous sunsets with a drink on the terrace. You may love the mix of old and older as this diminishing hostel offers some of modern facilities to possibly ensure a reasonably comfortable and 'okay' stay. ... more less
