“Noisy noisy noisy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013 via mobile

Had to book for a minimum of 3 nights, paid cash upfront, and not a relaxing time at all, windows don't shut properly and you can hear everything outside, tv on adjoining thin walls, band one one night then a dj the next with it being so loud that the radiators were vibrating til after 12 far too loud for a b&b, friendly staff and food at around £10-£15 a main course, rooms cleaned every day, but our room has extreme subsidence and is on a slope, with major cracks in the bathroom, we paid £240 for 3 nights, not worth anywhere near that.....

This was our first time staying here however we had visited before to sample the food and beers (which are great) the location of the hotel is great being right in the centre of town with everything in walkiby distance. The breakfast is amazing and the staff are very friendly. However the room are in.serious need of modernisation there was paper peeling off the walls, the carpet didn't quite go up to the edges in the room and the matress was well overdue replacement as you could feel the springs through it. I really do like every aspect of this place I just wish someone would spend some money on the rooms so it could go from being ok to great

Very welcoming for our little dog whilst dining, water , biscuits absolutely fantastic food and all round , we ordered food and drinks which were very prompt and certainly value for money, handy location in centre of windermere, close proximity to a cash machine, beer garden was a lovely setting in the afternoon sun, not to mention the roaring fire, all staff a credit to the business

We had dinner here during our stay in Bowness , we went upstairs as it was busy and found it to be very comfortable the staff were friendly and we had two courses from the evening special menu which we found delicious and above the normal pub grub standard, when we finished we went downstairs and enjoyed the rest of the evening in the comfy chairs.

Popped in for a quick sandwich & drink which is always good value and the chips are out of this world, then spotted someone having the smorgasbord. This is and amazing plate of either just cheeses with the usual salad, pickles, crackers etc or you can have the same but with beef, turkey & ham. We came back the next day & ordered the Albert (the one with the meat). This was amazing value and was a great afternoon or luchtime sharing platter. The only downside was that it could have either had a bit more bread or some crackers for the cheese. We will definitely be having this when we go back. A big well done

The albert was recommended by the owner of the guest house we were staying and it was defiantly a brilliant recommendation as the food was lovely, the 2 night we stayed in Windermere we ate here both night. the first night we ordered a starter and main course, but due to the generous portions we received this was far to much so the second night we just had the main courses which were delicious. Even the kids couldn’t shared a meal on the second night. Staff were nice and friendly. Would defiantly eat here again if we visit Windermere.
