Misleading Lack of hotel car Parking
The hotel was in an excellent position near the Lake Windermere but the Hotels.Com website said there was parking available. However this was at a cost of £20 per night for off site parking. I would not have booked the stay if I had known this

Central to bowness-on-windemere. Good spa.
It was a lovely hotel. Our window in our room wasn't sealed properly so if we weren't listening to pigeons giving off the coo-ing mating call all morning, we were listening to storm Jorge. The bed was comfortable. Room was clean. Food was good. The spa facilities were good, however the steam room was broken, and the pool was definitely cooler than 28 degrees.

Very nice hotel but breakfast could be improved
Our stay at the Old England was great! The hotel is very nice and the beds were extremely comfortable. The breakfast, however, could be improved. While the breakfast was included, both mornings the breakfast wasn't great and we regretted not going somewhere else for breakfast. Additionally, didn't like the fact that asking for a cappuccino instead of coffee was an extra charge.
Anthony, gb2 night trip
Poor 2.0
Partner has allergies, and felt that basic food handling education was somewhat lacking with the restaurant. despite when ordering food we were reassured that the meal can provided allergy free, The food arrived on same plate with ingredients identified as allergy, when this was pointed out, they did not seem to understand the basics of food hygiene. eventually the plate was taken back to kitchen, not the service id expect from a macdonald hotel..
