We stayed in the large room one out of two nights. Staff were excellent and breakfast was generous. Handy location with immediate access to restaurants or shops. Note it is on-street parking if you can get it but you are given a permit to show. Only point we did not enjoy was the bed was very uncomfortable, I think the mattress might need replacing. Water pressure is low but that may be a town issue. You need to consider the narrow stairs etc if you have trouble with heavy luggage or mobility but that wasn't a problem for us.
Location great. Host could not have been more helpful. Room on the small side, but so was the price for the room so no complaints there. Room clean.
A word of warning on Windemere hotels in general however. Their star rating system is not the same as elsewhere, so 4 stars in Windermere is the same as 2 stars elsewhere.

Great location and very friendly and accommodating staff. Excellent breakfast. Beds are big and rooms spacious. Toiletries are adequate - I'd recommend bringing your own from home! All in all a lovely place to stay while in the Lakes.

We had a wonderful stay and the guest house was spotless. The room was light and airy with special touches. The White towels were freshly laundered and changed every day. There was even a cork screw and wine glasses.
Breakfast was very hearty with plenty of choices served in alovely bright room. Staff were wonderful and not in your face and you could come and go as you please.
