My husband and I just spent four nights at the Marina village whilst visiting the Lake District. My husband had stayed there twenty years ago when he was a child and had fond memories so we decided it would be a good place to stay.
We stayed in a new one bedroom apartment and it was really superb. The apartment was furnished to a really high standard and was absolutely spotless. Lots of cutlery, plates, glasses and kitchen equipment, massive dining area and lounge, huge bedroom and bathroom. I couldn't fault it at all. The only reason I didn't give the marina village 5 stars was because of a few minor things, namely I think it would have been a nice touch if you receive a welcome pack when you arrive (a pint of milk, tea, coffee and condiments), there was also no clothes airer so had to dry all washing on the radiators, the wifi was non-existent and because we had bad signal the whole time we were in the lakes it would have been useful to have had decent wifi in the apartment. A little shop in the village would have also been handy, just to sell those little things you need urgently (milk/toilet roll etc). All of these things are not much to ask when you could stay at the McDonald hotel up the road for £100 more over the 5 nights.
Other than that the marina village was really a wonderful place to stay, very luxurious, an absolutely beautiful location, a 5min walk from bowness. Would recommend it and definitely come back!!
