Slightly difficult to find. Would recommend G.P.S. coordinates be included now with all listings.
A very nice, modern hotel set in wonderful gardens. We could see Lake Windermere from our room.
Approx 10 min walk from the hotel takes you down to the lake front and all the activity around the docks. Another 5 minutes of walking takes you to the high street and wonderful little shops and eateries.
The staff in the hotel were very helpful. The hotel was very clean and well maintained.

Fantastic experience. Location is exceptional with great views over the lake and a great overall base to explore Windermere and surrounds. The rooms are tastefully designed and fully-equipped with everything you'd expect of a top hotel. A special thanks to the gentleman (I believe it's Thomas?) for being very accommodating in finding us room at the restaurant despite not booking in advance and generally making us feel very welcome throughout our short but enjoyable stay.

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.
We stayed midweek - Monday night through to Friday morning. The staff were excellent - friendly and helpful and the food was first class, with sensible choices of wines with each course. The room was very comfortable and the wifi worked well throughout the hotel (no O2 signal though, so mobile phone calls were not possible, thankfully). The location is well placed for exploring the area - we shall definitely go back there when we are next in the Lake District.

My wife and I stayed for two nights from the 14th of August. We arrived in Windermere early to be met by a flash flood and decided to see if we could check in early. Martin was more than accommodating and we checked in from 2 o clock.
We stayed in room 1 which is at the front of the property and we heard no road noise whatever, it also has a lovely king size bed and a brilliant shower with lots of power and tons of hot water.
Freedom is the key word, apart from breakfast you never see Martin orhis staff
Breakfast has lots of choices and you are forever being asked if you require more
We found the best place to eat was at the Ship Inn which overlooks the Lake, the food is good quality and reasonably priced on our first night we had a table in the window and what a view! !!
