Good 6.0
Great location, rooms clean and spacious but food not good, had to wait a long time for it to come and then it was over cooked. Considering the cost of the room would have expected a fuller menu. It was very much basic pub food on a laminated sheet menu.

Inn on Windermere
Lovely inn on Lake Windermere. Restaurant/bar gardens sits on the edge of the lake. Beautiful views! I had a single lakeview room, which was a bonus. The room was clean and very cosy. Shower room and toilet were ensuite with a sink in the room, but not a problem. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was great with continental to full English. The gardens n grounds sitting on the lake made for a really relaxing experience, with no want to wander if you are on an overnight stay. Or you can catch a ferry at the harbour, a minutes walk away, to various places on Windermere, which would have been a definite option if I had been staying longer and not moving on to meet others. Will definitely come back again to do so.

Amazing stay, wonderful place
Amazing place, lovely friendly staff & made our 2 dogs really welcome. The garden rooms are very spacious, comfortable & well equipped. We loved having our delicious breakfast whilst enjoying views over the lake. We’ve been here many times for the lovely food & drinks but this was our first stay here as we usually stay in Bowness but we are definitely converted & will be staying here when we visit the lakes from now on.
