Windermere hotels are expensive, this one is worth its room rates. We stayed in room 8 view over garden and the lake. Breakfast excellent and gluten free toast provided. The evening meal was delicious , gluten free option available, the price was reasonable. Staff helpful and it is a vision hotel so the tapes people complained about on some reviews...

Thank you for your kind and honest review. Yes there are some elements of the hotel which are designed for our Visually Impaired guests, but I am sure, as you say they are of no inconvenience to fully sighted guests. We look forward to welcoming you back and again thank you for your kind comments

Visited here for 1 night and would not recommend or stay again. Hotel very dated and drab, needs major uplift, for prices charged. Food average, beds ok (could hear everything through bedroom walls and from hallway) Staff friendliness being the only positive outcome of our visit.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel and I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. As you will have seen, we have started on an upgrade programme and completed the public areas. We have also started replacing the beds in the rooms so there is quite a lot of investment taking place. I apologise that...

Please excuse the tasteless pun... as this property serves both the public and has villa accommodations for those with sight issues. Even the billing reference comes up as "actionforblindpeop." A marvelous location, our room was well appointed and the bed most comfortable. The basement contains an excellent sized heated indoor pool. From exterior to Interior this Hotel is a joy...

We stayed for 4 nights over half term. For a 3* hotel we were impressed. We stayed in the annex/cottage and had a lovely large room and large bathroom, also doors which led to our own patio area (which is a sun trap in the day!) the weather was glorious and we walked a lot. On arrival, the hotel had...

Windermere Manor is a nice hotel, although it needs a bit of updating. Rooms were nice, perhaps on the small side but it was fine for us. We stayed for 3 nights while on a walking weekend in the Lake District. We did not spend much time in the hotel apart in the evening, where we enjoyed a nice drink...

I’ll start with the dog friendly issue, yes the hotel is aimed at catering for people with visual impairments, and along with that come guid dogs. I’m not by any means a dog person but as I was attending an R.N.I.B. conference weekend I knew we wouldn’t be able to avoid some contact with them. Yes when you enter reception...
