Good again…
Great hotel. We previously used the hotel for anniversary and birthday one night stays but had a wedding in Windermere so didn’t see much of the room but they’re very good and clean. Didn’t use the restaurant this time but normally do and it’s very very good. Breakfast was epic. Staff friendly. Room clean it’s a 12 quid taxi to town centre (01539445445). Some town centre Windermere hotels are crap and pricey this is a good alternate if it fits your plans. They charge you for parking if you book on which is a little annoying

Hidden Charges For App Customers
Hotel was fine and the alternative afternoon tea was great. Reason for negative review is the hidden £12 car park charge for booking using an app. I dont actually care about the charge just that it was hidden and only applies to app customers. Feels like a con to eliminate the app discount. The only reason i used an app was because the direct booking wasnt working working on the site. Hopefully can look into this as i feel it violates the Ts&Cs of the app

It would have been absolutely 110% in all if parking is free and one particular staff that got up on wrong side bed 🙂 at breakfast, every thing was perfect
