We were shown into a lounge with a lovely view. The table was low and awkward to use. It was too small for the two sets of sandwiches and cakes. ( my wife is gluten intolerant ) The sandwiches were a bit dry. The scones were also very dry and brittle. After we had been served our food we were...

Great Groupon deal. This is a hotel with a location second to none with views of the lake from the front public rooms that are stunning. The location for those wanting to visit the lakes is ideal and I have just booked again due to the tremendous service, food and overall value for money. It is a grand old lady...

I booked through groupon. The hotel is lovely - very grand and old fashioned with log fires. We had to wait until 3pm for our room to be ready, but obviously this is no big deal in Windermere as there is plenty to do! Our room was one of the modern ones around the back. It was quite small, but...

Had a lovely Sunday night stay. I booked this hotel with a deal which included cream tea. My husband and I stayed in room 9 which was lovely and spotlessly clean. Dinner was nice wine a bit expensive however. Friendly staff and an excellent breakfast. Overall a nice break away.

We travel to the lakes quite often. This was a last minute trip for one night. We found a great deal on TripAdvisor for this hotel. We were able to take our little schnauzer who also loves the lakes. The hotel is an old shooting lodge so it has lots of character. The room was spacious and very comfortable. We...

“Our room was very tiny and a bit too far from reception and indeed life!. We are both disabled so, this did make things a bit tricky but the most beautiful Merewood made our stay as perfect as possible!. The staff at the Merewood are probably the best I have ever encountered!.”
