Windermere Short Stay
Really enjoyed our stay.
The staff and the owner were wonderful. Would definitely recommend to everybody.
Our Woodlands stay
Our room was a little small and there was no window in the bathroom.
All good apart from that, thank you.
Overall a good experience.
Staff very friendly and accommodating .
The Woodlands is a lovely hotel with beautiful rooms.
Staff were helpful when we saw them, although this wasn't often. It is central to both Windermere and Bowness and easy to drive or cruise to Ambleside and Grasmere. Breakfast was great. We really enjoyed our stay.
The staff were always helpful and friendly.
Breakfast was superb. A little more shelf space would have been appreciated.
Very pleasant stay at The Woodlands, booked for my husbands 40th Birthday, room was clean and decor was nice and modern, tea/coffee making facilities also iron/ironing board in room, breakfast was excellent, only downside was the room was small (room 2), but saying that we were only sleeping in it so wasn't a problem.
disappointed hotel didn't have sauna,swimmimg pool as specified,this was all based in another hotel down the road
hotel on a busy road,therefore take earplugs if want a good nights sleep
Nice Hotel - watch your room choice and beware value for money
This is a lovely hotel and the staff and owners are lovely.
It is a little bit of a victim of its own marketing and expectation setting.
My experience is that paying for a 'premium' room and don't get me wrong it was a lovely room maybe the cost and my expectations were not met. Maybe had we got one of the better rates on offer the niggles would not have seemed so bad. Two nights for over £270. This was not worth that. As a result I have to reflect that in the quality and value for money scores.
The garden room had no bath. It has a small shower room that floods. We reported it and they dealt with it. The room is big enough to house a toilet and a shower and to just about stand in the space thats left. I remind you this £270 for 2 nights. Quality therefore for the price low and value for money therefore low.
The garden room is in the carpark. Below the kitchen. With no privacy or seating area. No private area. No segregation. No big deal and pleasant enough. But we booked a courtyard room. Not a car park room. And this was £270 for 2 nights. The hotel has free wifi. It does not work in the garden / cellar rooms. This room was £270 for 2 nights. The hotel and therefore review is the victim of just being in the wrong charging bracket and reality not meeting the expectation of the marketing or the price. For 70 to 80 a night - you would probably say, thats a nice room. Pay that ball park and you will probably be delighted.
You can get a lot of hotel for £270 for two nights. And sadly this isn't it.
** The owner did explain to his credit in detail why the rate was what it was. This was in a response to a complaint email I sent on our first day. I appreciate his time doing so and understand his position but that does not alter the material facts for the customer. Too expensive for what it was.
