Great location just a short walk into Windermere and easy to get down to the lake either a 15 min walk downhill or a bus which runs regularly. Lovely breakfast, helpful staff and a lovely quiet but friendly atmosphere. Only reason not 5* given is the bed was too soft for us and gave us backache and there was no bath only a shower, apparently the executive rooms do have baths.

We have just returned from the Woodlands after staying for two nights. The hotel is ideally located between Winderemere and Bowness. We walked into both during the day and evening.
Our room was clean and warm, no need to turn radiator on!
We enjoyed a full English breakfast both mornings, so much so we couldn't eat lunch!
Overall a pleasant stay. Thank you.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights. The lady who welcomed us (Erica I think) was really lovely and keen to give us advice about the local area. The bedroom was well kitted out and spacious but as other travellers have said, I'm not sure this is a 5 star property (decor bit run down in places) - but it deserves no less than 4 in my opinion. Location is good - closer to Windermere than Bowness. Breakfast is of a really high standard and the lady who was serving in the mornings (I think she was spanish? I didn't catch her name) is a real credit to the hotel - very hardworking, polite and friendly. Overall, a nice stay in the lakes!

Just returned from a 2 day stay at this hotel whilst visiting friends in Carnforth. This was our first stay here. Certainly not 5 star, more of a 3plus. Some areas need updating but like a lot of these old type houses come hotels, they need a lot of money to do so. Car parking spaces at front of hotel available.

Staff friendly. Room quite compact. Bed comfortable and clean. Wardrobe only had 3 coat hangers. Iron available but didn't see any ironing board. Tea/coffee facilities available with complementary water. Hairdryer available too. Room very warm and stuffy even without heating on!

Bathroom was really quite small and narrow. Shower was good. Plenty of hot water.
Breakfast was good. Would have preferred fresh fruit in the morning rather than tinned peaches, prunes and grapefruit. Husband had full English breakfast which he really enjoyed. This hotel only does breakfast - no evening meal available at all.

Hotel is well located, just walking distance into Windermere centre to shops and restaurants. Quite a number of restaurants to choose from and reasonably priced.
