The three day stay at Windamere was the highlight of my recent visit with my family. It's old-world charm, hospitable staff and great location made it a wonderful stay. I liked it that it was so close to Chowrasta and somewhat away from the rest of the crowded places, and loved both sitting out in the sun in the court-yard/ viewpoint terrace in the day and the tea-time in the rooms inside with the scones, cakes etc. It also served one of the best teas I have had - in fact, carried back a pack of their Castleton Muscatel tea! Certainly on the pricier side but well-worth it for a holiday if you are in a mood to indulge.
