          Lovely stay, great hotel. Great location. Excellent room overlooking gardens and lake. Clean and comfortable, service from housekeeping very good. Only problem was very slow service at mealtimes, not due to dining room staff, who were very appologetic but shortage in kitchen staff.More

          We've booked a double executive room via our travel agent and are arriving by train Aug. 4 in the morning, prior to official check in time. What is the transportation from the train station? Is there Uber in Windermere? May we stow our baggage if we're not able to check in prior to 3pm? Thank you!
