Stayed at the Briery Wood for 1 night over the Bank Holiday weekend. Location of the hotel is great, really convenient for visiting Windermere, Bowness or Ambleside, just off the main lake road just outside of Windermere.
I booked a room reasonably last minute through Late Rooms and the price was incredibly competitive for the location and time of year. Also really useful that the Briery Wood didn't have minimum stay limits in place over the weekend as most similarly priced Hotels did have.
Hotel is set back from the Ambleside Road in pretty grounds with plenty of space for parking, so guaranteed a quite night regardless of the position of the room. I had a double room with an ensuite. The room itself wasn't huge but was perfectly spacious for me. The room I had was nicely decorated, modern finisihings with a nice flat screen tv. Ensuite bath and shower was very modern and looked recently renovated, very nice.
I stayed on a B&B rate, breakfast started a little late for me @ 8.30 but choice was very good and service at breakfast was great so probably worth the wait.
Would definitely recommend this hotel as a very reasonably priced alternative to some of the larger Windermere hotels.
