My wife and I have just returned from a four night stay at this clean and welcoming hotel. We travelled by train and received a great reception from the staff who quickly booked us in and explained about meal times etc. The room was on the first floor affording a view out to Lake Windermere and it was clean and well presented.(We hadnt booked a room with a view.) Meals were very good, with pleanty of choice. Though it was very cold outside the hotel was warm in the bedrooms and the public rooms. The staff were always ready to ensure that you were enjoying your stay and I can say, if you visit and have a problem, 'tell them', and they will rectify your problem. This hotel gives 'value for money'. Yes, there is a problem with seating space in the bar but work is in hand to build-on in the future. I think bar prices are a bit steep but we found similar in other bars in the Lake District during our stay. Local buses are just across the road and it is downhill to reach them. If you want to go down to the Lake by taxi it's £4 each way. An enjoyable stay. We will be coming back later in the year. Well done Windermere!!
