Positive Reviews

Fabulous location in the lakes

The hotel is set in the heart of Windermere giving guests the perfect place to stay if visiting the local area. Everything is within walking distance so a car is not necessary once they arrive.

Lovely staff and full of advice

The owners are highly rated and are described as being very friendly and helpful to many previous guests. This is a definite reason they would like to return and stay again. They offer lots of information regarding the local area and things guests can do.

Very clean and comfortable

They reviews state how well looked after the house is. The owners do a fine job of keeping all areas clean and tidy and it always smells fresh.

Negative Reviews

Not enough storage space

The rooms are described as being a little on the smaller size and also as not having enough storage space, no wardrobes in some or only a small set of drawers to put your clothes in near the bed.

Low pressure showers in en-suite

The en-suite bathrooms have negative reviews regarding the showers. They state they have low pressure which is disappointing when you've been out walking in the lakes and want to freshen up.

Dated decor and needs a revamp

The decor inside is a traditional style. Those who have stayed here before have said it needs to be renewed however the owners do mention on their site, the house has period features throughout so guests can expect this when they arrive.
