I booked the Hotel on the reviews I had read on Trip Advisor and in general would not argue with most of the reviewers. The room was clean and tidy, although a little tired. The shower when the guest house was occupied by other users fluctuated in heat and the cubicle was a little on the small side.

Having booked for three evening stay I was alarmed that I was expected to use the towels for the entire stay, rather than the usual change of towels each day. I incurred a surcharge for the mistake .Replenishment of the drinks tray was not up to my expected standards, only six sachets of sugar for two people, however, on asking for more it was remedied.

The hosts were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was above standard.

In all a pleasant stay,

I booked this hotel after seeing all of the pleasant reviews that were on here, and they were all correct. Location is great, 2min walk to all the local shops, cafes and pubs etc and about a 20min walk to Bowness. The room was clean and tidy and had everything you would need, a nice selection of hot drinks in the room and bottled water and cake and biscuits, which was a lovely extra. Breakfast was very tasty and they had a wide selection suitable to all tastes. Mary was always pleasant and very helpful and provided leaflets of lovely little walks to go on. I would definitely stay again, maybe with the children next time as they have a family room.

We have just stayed at 1 Park Road Windermere for 2 nights. We were booked in for B&B and really enjoyed our time. The room was very comfortable and the owners were very friendly and helpful. There were lots of extra little touches in the room . The hotel is only a short walk from the restaurants and shops in Windermere and Bowness and parking was fairly easy. Breakfast was excellently cooked and with a very good choice. We would definitely revisit 1 Park Road.

Ive been to 1 Park Road three times and is always provides a thoroughly comfortable base for exploring the Lakes. Clean, well appointed rooms in a lovely Lakeland property right between Windermere and Bowness. The Lounge has a wonderful grand Piano which is a lovely addition for any piano players or musicians.

The breakfasts are *fantastic* and the hosts Philip and Mary are lovely people - far from the usual strained hosts that you can often get.

What a hidden gem!! Just spent two nights here, lovely original building, lovely rooms. Only 6 so it remains small and friendly. Rooms have extras you wouldn't normally get a settee, nice hairdryer, bottle of wine on arrival!!! also bottled water, Kendal mint cake and a wide selection for hot drinks. Lovely and clean. Fantastic selection at breakfast all freshly cooked. Literally a 2 minute walk into Windermere and about 20 minute walk to Bowness. Limited but off road parking available. Loads of literature available about the area etc

Would really recommend this and we will be going back at some point. Mary & Philip provide a very 'home from home', friendly relaxed atmosphere

Thank you for making our anniversary such a pleasant one!!

Just had a great weekend at 1 Park Road. From the greeting by Phil with a platter of meat and salad to Mary being bright and cheerful at breakfast. To top it off they sent by MP3 which I left in the room back to me the very next day. I would recommend staying here. You won't be dissapointed.

Just returned from a very relaxing weekend in The Lakes. We booked 1 Park Road as a Groupon Deal and were not disappointed. Philip & Mary were excellent hosts and the room was spacious with everything we needed. Breakfasts were wonderful with lots of choice, we ate full English both days to prepare us for our hikes in Grasmere and Ambleside. We had a meat platter as part of the deal which was very tasty with my husband trying one of Philips speciality beers which he enjoyed. Ate in windermere the first night at Hooked which was amazing and travelled to Ambleside to Jintara for Thai food the second. Very good location to stay, close to other villages and lots of walking choices nearby. We would recommend 1 Park Road to anyone, lovely stay thanks to Philip and Mary.
