This was our second stay - we stayed in the Lakeview room on the second floor. This room has a queen size bed and bath with shower over it. We especially like the white bedding and the quality of the quilts which feels like it could be feather and down but is actually anti-allergic and synthetic but very nice to...

My husband and I booked 2 nights dinner bed and breakfast in a lake view room at the Sawrey House hotel as part of the excellent value Winter Warmers offer. The hotel is fabulous, smart but understated in a beautiful spot overlooking Esthwaite and 2 minutes walk from Hilltop and the Tower Bank Arms. Our room was stylish and lovely...

What an excellent deal we had in a superbly run understated hotel. Good room for the money and although we had dinner included for one night we stayed in to eat on the second night and had another super dinner - value for money.. Great staff with attentive service.

Hotel is fantastic, with a great, very polite service and a fabulous food! Amazing breakfast. Beautiful views. Quiet area. We had a lake view room which was very nice, although I'm taking half of a star for not comfortable bed. Or beds rather - two single beds joined together. Worth visiting.

Me and my partner stayed in this hotel for a one night trip to the lakes. (Saturday night) Upon booking, I didn't realise the hotel wasn't actually in Windermere, which was my fault however I wasn't impressed with the fact we had to get a car ferry over to where the hotel is. Reason being is that it's £4.40 each...

Hannah the do everything girl was very friendly and helpful, but the management of the hotel were conspicuous by their lack of involvement with the guests. Room was adequate, but like so many rooms now the lighting was rather dim - not great for reading. Meals in the restaurant were generous, and generally well prepared.
