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

Valentines Get Away

Stay Date: 13/02/11, a customer from Uk who stayed at 4* The Wild Boar Inn (2 Night Offer & 1st Night Dinner) in Windermere wrote this review.

This ws a return visit to the wild boar, and knowing we were going to be a bit late due to traffic the staff were great at taking our food order for our meal to be ready for 9.15pm as we arrived. See More  Read more information Food was perfect as usual. Our room had been upgraded to the wild boar suite and the ostentacious decoration did not disappoint, nor did the enormous copper bath in the room! bed was comfortable androom light and airy. Our 2nd day was spent touring round grasmere and ambleside then back to the boar for a relax before our sumptious meal. The chef surpassed himself as usual and the smoked plum saucecan be highly recommended to go with the smoked steaks. Service was excellent and a thoroughly good night enjoyed. Breakfast on both days is as substantial and hearty as you want to make it, or not ifthe case may be.   Collapse  Hide
