Poor will not return
Poor quality room, asked for double got twin. Window frame rotten, tv about 20 years old only one channel. Tiniest shower room in the world very noisy plumbing. Penny pinching owners. Poor car parking ineffective staff. All in all rotten time had
Did not get what we booked
We asked for a twin with child bed got a double. Breakfast ok but nothing special. Car park issues
Disappointing second visit
This was our second visit to this hotel which is in an excellent location, minutes from the toen and lake. We stayed in a standard double room which was exceptionally clean with maid service every day. Our breakfast was cooked fresh every morning and was of a high standard as was the first class service from the staff.
When we went to use the pool, we found the coded entry door open and childrens swimming lessons underway limiting you to use one side of a very small pool.Spectators sat at side of pool and childrens clothes were left in the cubicles of the unisex changing rooms instead of lockers making only one changing cubicle in use. Parents were also hanging about in the changing room which faces onto the showers , making getting ready a very uncomfortable experience. Disappointingly I emailed the hotel regarding this matter and they have not replied.
It reflected a great deal history and closeness with the surrounding area, with good views over the surrounding landscape. The staff were helpful and attentive.
I felt that although it had a good deal of history attached to it, and the location gave it a great viewpoint, the hotel needed some TLC (ie update some window frames and other minor areas) to bring it up to where it deserves to be. I would definitely visit again, regardless of these minor points.
Great location. Good breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff.
Slightly faded grandeur, but good value through Booking.com. I would not have paid more for this room, which was large, but at the back and facing a wall and a rock which was part of the hill upon which the Hydro is built.
The receptionist was so helpful, we were put into the gorgeous honeymoon suite with amazing views
Not enough milk put in rooms for tea/coffee
The room was quite comfortable. Very good bed. Good bathroom. The view over Lake Windermere was excellent. Breakfast in our room was excellent. Swimming pool was good. Staff were very friendly. Good parking. Good lift to all floors.
Poor uht milk for tea/coffee in room. TV not very good. No radio.
