“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

We had a week here at the start of August with our kids. The accommodation was good. Unfortunately the weather was awful however we still managed to find plenty to do. Being around the marina with the balcony was lovely and I can imagine with some good weather it would be a lovely place to sit. It was fairly expensive but as this is my only experience if this area I'm not sure how it compares to other accommodation. We had a 3 bedroom apartment for our family of 5 and there was more than enough space...

Thank you for your review, I'm pleased you had a great time. I note your comments regarding the tea and coffee and we are going to include a welcome drinks pack in the properties so our guests can make a quick brew before they unpack. We're just working out the logistics now so hopefully next time you visit everything will be in place.
Thanks again and hope to see you again soon,
Tracii

My family stayed in the apartments in august for 4 nights. The Apartment was very spacious and next to the marina with lovely views. It was clean and they provided some board games which was nice of them. We cooked their twice all the kitchen utensils and cutlery were provided.Nice place all in all.
Only change I could ask was whether the towels can be changed daily?

We stay in a room of 5 in July for 4 days, the room is clean and facing the basin with fantastic view. It is about 15 mins walk to the Windermere town and the old England hotel where you can enjoy the nice heated pool and sauna.

You can also use the BBQ area in the village which also have a great view to the lake. It was a pleasant stay overall.

My family and I have visited Windermere Marina Village for the past 3 years for the weekend before Christmas. I have to say, it's become one of my favourite Christmas traditions. The cottages themselves are spacious, well presented, clean, warm and modern. There is plenty room for 6 adults (and all the kit/food that comes with us). There is plenty to do in the vicinity of WMV, with Bowness just a short walk away. It's a fantastic location to spend "fake Christmas" with the marina looking stunning in the cold British winter, and the cottages providing the perfect setting for a cosy night in with a good home-cooked meal.

The beds are all very comfortable, the showers are great and the kitchens have everything you could possibly need for your stay. The staff are always helpful and really go out of their way to make your stay one to remember. The wi-fi is somewhat temperamental (occasionally), but that is a minor blot on what is an exceptionally positive copy book (and is a blessing in disguise when you're travelling with smartphone-addicts). I can't wait to go back!

We've just done 7 nights here , we have a boat on the marina so we treat our selfs to a few nights in the apartments 4 or 5 times a year , we've never had a bad experience . All the rooms are to a very high standard , you also get 24 hr security around the marina . Well to all the staff who make it run so smoothly .

No hesitation in recommending this venue. We stayed in a three bed-roomed Windermere apartment number 41. It was spotlessly clean and high spec. It had everything we needed. Service at reception was friendly and helpful. I really can't pick out any negatives. BIG comfortable beds. The Marina is just far enough away from Bowness to get away from the crowd but an easy walk to use the facilities at the MacDonald old England hotel. You may find cheaper but you get what you pay for and this was good 4star. We had no noise issues even though there was a group of "ladies" staying nearby. They did the right thing and turned the noise down at the right time. Give it a go !
