Good Value Room in The Lakes

Stay Date: 27/04/08, a customer who stayed at 4* Lakeside Hotel in Windermere (Newby Bridge) wrote this review.

Room was very nice with a private garden patio, albeit facing the hills. Bed a little soft for our taste. Dinner menus too formal and expensive so we ate out. See More  Read more information   Collapse  Hide

Windermere

Stay Date: 13/06/08, a customer from Crewe who stayed at 4* Beech Hill Hotel & Spa in Windermere wrote this review.

The hotel was situated on the banks of Windermere Lake, 3 miles from Bowness. It whad a glorious view from the balcony, which could also be seen from the room, the resturant and the bar. The hotel See More  Read more information itself was very nice, but the room was not up to much, and was smaller than our 2nd bedroom at home. However the breakfast was nice, and there was plenty of variety. Bowness is a lovely little townwith easy parking. Again this is on the edge of Windermere, and has many 'Tourist' traps to tempt you. From decent shops, nice pubs and out of the way resturants, it was a nice place to spend theevening.   Collapse  Hide
