An amazing week at The Windermere
The Windermere is fantastic, my room was lovely and the bed so comfortable and warm, amazing hot showers. Fab breakfast too, proper full English, fruit, cereals, whatever you wanted. Great location too, quiet street, 5 minutes from the centre of Bowness with lots of pubs, restaurants and shops. Plus bus stop close by and great views from the top of the road at Biskey Howe. Great hikes a few minutes walk away. A great base for exploring the Lake District. Highly recommend.

Good 6.0
It was ideally situated first impression was nice until found used gin can under table cobwebs in the room And although the bathroom was spotless the drainage did smell. The staff were very friendly and the food was really good so apart from the three points mentioned above very nice overnight stay. The beds were very comfy
