This was our first time with Shearings and our first UK holiday for a long time as we usually take a cruise or visit Spain. On arriving at the Windermere we were pleasantly surprised at its lovely outside appearance and on entering we also liked what we saw.
The only draw back was the fact that our room would not be available until 3pm and the coach had arrived at 12pm. However we had a look around Wndermere Town and had a light lunch and then returned and sat in the hotel lounge. One thing that should be noted is that the hotel sits at the top of a steep hill. On eventually being given the keys to our room we found it to be of a reasonable standard and contained a bath as we had requested and had a good view over the fields at the back. The meals in the hotel where of a good standard and gave a reasonable choice and the waiters and the rest of the staff where very friendly and could not have been more helpful. All in all we would recommend this hotel.
