First of all, don't be put off by the photo of the large white hotel on this page - The Windermere looks nothing like it. The photos that have been posted below are exactly what you will find.
My trip was business focused. It was perfectly situated just outside the city with many restaurants in the vicinity.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they accommodated our requests which included an additional room for two nights and clients joining for breakfast.
It is a great place to return to after a hectic day and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The mini-bar was well stocked and all linen, towels etc were in great condition.
The only negative I could find would be the small amount of TV Channels on offer. I could not find a SA news channel to watch.
Wi-Fi is available without charge.
I will definitely stay here on my trips to PE.
