Family room needs refurbished
Booked a twin as was travelling with my Dad. The room we were given was a double so I returned to reception to change rooms. They said I had booked a double until I showed them the Hotels.com confirmation showing a Twin room, then they said the system must have tried to upgrade us to a double, ...not much of an upgrade if you specifically booked twin beds. There weren’t any twins available so they offered us 2x double rooms or a family room. We took the family room but regretted it upon entry as it certainly wasn’t to the same decor standards as the other rooms/what we’d seen online. Rather disappointing. No headboards, no mirror near the dresser, no sockets near the mirror, couldn’t fit the chair in front of the dresser, the windows took brute force to close and lock (we were on the ground floor). The corridor outside our room had soaking wet carpets from a leak and stank. Floors throughout were very creaky and we were woken several times from the people above our room. It is an old building though I guess this is to be expected. Breakfast was fine to be fair. If you’re booking for a family, I’d probably just recommend going to a travel-lodge. P.S. £6 additional charge to park in their car park per night.

AVOID, mouldy, dirty and rude staff
We had mould in the room a coffee machine in which I don’t think has ever been cleaned. Rude staff went to mention about the mould and no apology just the excuse it is housekeeping’s job and they will tell them!! For £121 including parking charging I think this is disgusting for the mould, cleanliness and terrible service Avoid!!!

Hotel review
Overall the hotel was good but not great. Silly things like stale tea bags in the bedroom, bedroom windows that coukdnt be opened, and a cramped dinning room spoilt the visit. Iven tjis, the hotel was amongst the cheapest in Windemere so i got what i paid for.
