I surprised my boyfriend with a 3 night stay here for Christmas as we love Windermere and what a let down it was! The carpet was filthy, damp on the wall, you couldn't adjust the shower without it falling to bits and to top things off there was no house keeper. Which resulted in us running out of toilet roll...

Whilst staying in Windermere we went here for an evening meal. The food was good value and tasty with a reasonable selection of standard pug grub on offer. The bar also serves a few decent real ales (one of the few to do so locally) which were also reasonably priced. The staff were really friendly and there was a real...

The room...

Where to start, my husband invited we for a long weekend away in Windermere and we staid at The Elleray. When there I could not find anybody to check in and when I finally found somebody there was a confusion if the room was paid or not. There is no parking if you bring a car but you can park...

Stayed in Windermere recently and went out for lunch to The Elleray. Could not believe how reasonable the prices were and thought, wrongly, you get what you pay for. What a pleasant surprise though, the food was absolutely superb and home cooked fresh. Really, truly enjoyed a lovely meal. Well worth a visit.

We come here on our yearly trip to Windermere. We originally chose it as we could get our pushchair in easily, but it has become a regular stop. The food is good, a decent price for the Lakes. Plenty of veggie choices - I usually go for the omelette. Staff are always friendly.
