we have just stayed in the Windermere Guesthouse and I would like to leave a bit of feedback, the shower was either absolutely Baltic cold, or boiling hot. No in between. Sometimes it actually kept changing which was hard to shower in as the heat or coldness was just unbearable. The door on the shower didn't shut which meant the door got soaked and was a serious slip hazard. And I'm also a bit concerned that although I knew when booking it was a shared bathroom, that it wasn't at any point thoroughly cleaned, in the current climate that is quite concerning. The bedroom was so so cold, I actually slept fully clothed last night just to keep warm. I am aware it is cold weather at the moment but there was no way the radiator could be turned on which also meant out towels were soaking wet. The hotel was generally clean and tidy and was a good place to stay. I think the experience could've been improved if all the above points were fixed. If so we would definitely return. Thanks for having us.

The way this is advertised on Expedia is not accurate. It indicated it had parking included and a bathroom. However no where did it say it would be a shared toilet. This needs to be very clearly indicated especially in times such as COVID. We were very disappointed to find a dirty shared toilet which was not regulary cleaned. it didn't even have a toilet bin. The tea bags in the room were so old that had dirt on it. The walls were so thin you could hear evrything around you. parking was also misleading as there was no allocated parking it was park at your own risk limited street parking. . we had to spend extra to park.. The TV in the room didn't work either. Highly disappointed. Poor value for money ..there was no one at the reception to speak to about our concerns . definitely not staying here again. Very poor COVID health and safety measures which is important these days

Terrible. No hot water throughout the entirety of our stay there. Mold in both the bedroom and the bathroom. The walls might as well be paper thin, we heard everything going on in the entire guest house. Parking is a nightmare, even if you are lucky enough to get one of the four spots available, they’re on a busy road on a hill right before a set of traffic lights; not ideal. The only positive thing I can say about it is the location. Other than that a complete rip off.
