Relaxing Bithday Treat

Stay Date: 13/11/11, a customer who stayed at this hotel wrote this review.

Luckily we live not far from the beatuiful lake district so have been on many occasions for a day out. This time however we stayed in a lovely hotel and enjoyed the lakes in luxury. The view at See More  Read more information breakfast down the lake was spectacular and each morning the staff were at pains to seat us in order to get the best view. The staff were very helpful and friendly both in the restaurant and at reception.We swam in the beautiful pool (also with views of the lake) before breakfast and used the sauna and steam room. Parking was restricted close to the hotel but we managed to find a space and didn'trequire the valet parking offered by the hotel. In order not to use the car we visited ambleside by boat instead and had a thoughrouly relaxing sail approx 40 min with wonderful scenery much better thantravelling by road. It was a 10min walk into ambleside passing hayes garden centre on the way. Wonderful christmas display and well worth a look. Visited the art gallery on church street nr salutationhotel. The handblown glass is beautiful. Another day we revisited a walk around tarn hows still beautiful and an easy walk taking about an hour on the flat (you can make it more difficult by headingup on to the tops). My only complaint was the cost of the car park, £4 for two hours. It used to be free 20 yrs ago!! we then dropped down into hawkshead looked around the shops and galleries. Apicture book spot. Had some mulled wine in the pub there, just the thing on a winters night and then returned to bowness for a meal in hyltons restaurant. The crab starter was excellent. Called at kendalfor a bit more shopping on the way home. All in all a wonderful break.   Collapse  Hide

An Alternative Hotel!

Stay Date: 29/09/11, a customer who stayed at this hotel wrote this review.

Although we booked the macdonald leeming hotel, it was at very late notice and online, so when we arrived the staff at the hotel were a little surprised to see us. Unfortunately there wasn't room at See More  Read more information the inn for the two night stay, but the staff were excellent and made arrangements for us to stay at an alternative macdonald hotel. We weren't just provided with a room, but upgraded to a gorgeoussuite directly overlooking lake windermere. The old england hotel in bowness on winderemere was just perfect - a better location would be hard to find; the food was wonderful, the facilities excellentand the staff top notch. And we hit on the fantastic indian summer. We just couldn't have asked for more.   Collapse  Hide

Room With A View

Stay Date: 14/06/11, a customer from Uk who stayed at this hotel wrote this review.

3 wonderful days spent at a great traditional hotel with grand views and attentive staff. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel wanted and special by the staff. The room had a wonderful See More  Read more information lake view and was of a good size with a huge king-size bed (fab). Food was excellent both from the terrace bar and the magnificent setting of the restaurant. The spa is a must to complete the chilloutweekend. Roberto's bistro which is 250 yards from old england hotel is a must (booking advised 01539 443535) fantastic choice and food was to die for. The staff are superb and we were glad to get thelast table on the night even though locally it's known as the naughty table (fine by us).   Collapse  Hide

Short Break In Bowness

Stay Date: 28/09/10, a customer from Uk who stayed at this hotel wrote this review.

Old England is an excellent hotel, super room with a lake view (upgraded on arrival). Great service at reception, dining room and lounge bar. The food was superb at breakfast and evening meal. See More  Read more information Constructive criticism: cocktail bar which leads to the terrace, the two foreign staff on first afternoon were abrupt and very regimented, yet the tables and chairs on the terrace were not set outcorrectly despite it being a lovely day. Chairs were tilted over the tables and were a trip hazard to guests. Roberto's restaurant in Bowness. Superb food and service. Fully recommend a visit.   Collapse  Hide
