We booked one night for my girlfriends birthday, looking at the website we liked the look of the place.
Overall it was ok. I'd asked for a nice room as it was a birthday present and we were alocated room 15. It was quite a small room with a small ensuite and after seeing the website we were quite dissapointed at the room. We also saw one of the other rooms whilst a door was open and it was about three times as big with a much nicer bathroom. This just left us more dissapointed.
A small room is fine as long as it is comfortable but the bed was not! it was like a peice of wood and pillows were no better, we had very little sleep that night because of the bed. The following morning we were a bit confused at breakfast. Its table service and normally I like some cereal folowed by a cooked breakfast when i stay away as a treat. It wasn't clear from the menu if you could do this, so we both just had a cooked breakfast. The food was very nice however.
The location is ok, with about a 15 minute walk into Bowness and two minute walk into Windermere, its about two minute drive to Bowness. The use of the facilities and leisure club at The Old English is nice.
We would look elsewhere before staying here again.More
