We stayed at the Windemere for one night at the start of our honeymoon. It wasn’t far from the airport and it was a 2 minute walk from the sea front and about 15 from the boardwalk complex. It's a small hotel as it was a house years ago and is on a residential street.
There was secure off street parking at the back of the building. We arrived in the evening and received a warm welcome. The decor and layout of the building was quirky. We were taken straight to our room which was enormous (more like two rooms put together).
It was extremely spacious and very clean, likewise with the bathroom. We received a complimentary bottle of champagne for our honeymoon from the staff which was very nice. There is no proper bar or restaurant at the Windermere as they say they do not try and compete with the multitude of restaurants on the front. They did have a limited selection of light bites and snacks and drinks which was more than adequate for us after travelling.
Breakfast was enjoyable with a good menu and the staff were courteous and very helpful. We were glad we found the Windermere. It was very comfortable and we would definately recommend this hotel for its cleanliness, service and value for money and it’s just a little bit different.
