We have visited Windermere and the surrounding area on numerous occasions. Usually stopping in large 5 star hotels. This visit we decided to try Dene House after looking at reviews on trip advisor, and I am so glad we did. This place beats anything we have stopped in before. From the moment you arrive you get a friendly greeting, and...

Fantastically clean and comfortable, great hosts who were very helpful. Great location and reasonable value. Very good breakfast as well! Didn't worry us too much, but if your sensitive to noise, you may wish to request avoiding room one as it is just inside the front door, reception area and opposite the breakfast area, otherwise fabulous! Many thanks

Great location, perfect for walks, the Lake and pubs/restaurants. A clean, comfortable place to stay. Breakfast is lovely and cooked to your liking. We had one of the smaller rooms but it wasn't too small.

Thank you for your kind review, we hope you will return to Dene House sometime in the future when perhaps you could try one of our superior rooms, which are much larger and have a super king sized bed.

Set in a quiet location, but only a two minute walk from good pubs shops and the lake. Owners were friendly but not intrusive. Nice shower, comfy beds, breakfast was excellent and plenty of it. All round quality.

Lovely place within a short walk of the town centre. Very clean and comfortable, with an excellent host and great food. The parking facilities were spot on and the ambience of the place was relaxing if you need to get away from it all.

I had a really relaxing time when we stayed at the hotel. I would recommend it to anyone. It was a lovely room and i couldn't fault it. The food was lovely. It was also a good location as it was right next to the town centre.

Booked 1 night at the Dene House on the basis of previous reviews. Really nice property, great location, spotless rooms, bathroom facilities compact but perfectly adequate, friendly and informative management. Breakfast provided was very nice indeed. I would have given a 5 rating however unfortunately our room (no. 2, a superior room at top of stairs on the first floor)...

This was our 2nd stay at Dene House and it didn't disappoint. Ian & Jenny were great hosts, very quiet at night and their home made breakfast was the cherry on top. Fabulous weekend in the lakes made even more fabulous by an amazing B&B
