Lacks atmosphere and the rooms need updating, although kept clean. Food is average with VERY small portions. Absolutely awful if you have to be seated in the overflow dining area, as this is a really depressing place to be. Mostly elderly guests in the hotel....More

Not the best hotel. Parking is first come first served and you cannot reserve a space, so invariably guests arriving are told to park in the train station car park until someone with a space checks out. Caters for elderly guests which is fine but...More

Very nice stay at Windermere Hotel. Rooms very nice and staff polite and helpful. Location is good as close to near by village. Bowness is just a couple of miles away. Will recommend to a friend who is staying early next year.

About
Description
Windermere has been called the ‘Gateway to the Lakes.’ With mountains, moors, lakes and tarns it is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the splendour of the English countryside, right in the heart of the More Lake District. The Windermere Hotel occupies an excellent location at the head of the village of Windermere itself. Built from traditional Lakeland slate, our hotel is listed by English Heritage, and is one of the oldest hotels in Windermere having opened back in 1847 to coincide with the construction of the local railway. The hotel’s location is ideal for exploring the local villages of Bowness and Windermere, as well as the beautiful Lake District scenery. Less

There is nowhere to keep bikes. We ended up chaining ours to a post round the back of the hotel near the kitchen
