Guest reviews

  • Couple

    The staff at Woodlands were exceptionally helpful from the minute we arrived. The room was very good, although a little smaller than expected.

    The hotel itself was excellent. However, it's worth noting some of the rooms face onto a very busy road which might disturb some.

  • Group of friends

    Friendliness of staff and their willingness to meet requests for minor comfort adjustments. Food ( breakfast only) was excellent - well-cooked and presented by communicative and helpful staff.

    The hotel website led us to expect a higher quality of accommodation than the reality of the accommodation allocated to us - cramped bathroom and lack of storage particular issues.

  • Single

    excellent breakfast; made reservation for restaurant for me

    roo too small; water flow no more than a trickle in shower; TV outdated and not working

  • Older travelers

    Warm and instructive welcome; freshly cooked breakfast with attentive service; good location and reasonably good value.

    Absence of shaver socket in bathroom.

  • Older travelers

    The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful also the waiter, was in a good location for both windermere and bowness. Breakfasts were very good and plentiful.

    Our room was ok very clean but the bathroom was a little on the small side not much room to put any toiletries and the shower wasnt brilliant, we have stayed in 4 star hotels in Manchester quite a lot for the same price and the bathrooms are much more superior,

  • Single

    everyone very friendly and helpful.breakfast well served and nicely decorated, easy to control temp and comfy.

  • Couple

    We did spend much time at the hotel but breakfast was very nice and the room was comfortable and well designed.the young girl on reception makes the nicest need to get onto that and get them sold.You'll make a right few quid

  • Older travelers

    Very small bedroom & bathroom. High street noise at night.

  • Group of friends

    I lovely Hotel, cosy rooms & fabulous breakfasts. Staff were very welcoming & helpful.

    The use of the Spa at an alternative Hotel, this was in Bowness a mile away. If you wanted to dirve there the valet service at the Hotel was £15 or you could use the pay & display car park.

  • Group of friends

    location is good just 15 mins from windemere station and easy to find, rooms are tidy and garden is lovely

  • Older travelers

    Ideal central location, between Windermere & Bowness. The decor is modern and relaxing.

    The tables in the breakfast room are too close together.

  • Older travelers

    The very frendly staff and the breakfast was excelent

    The price per night seemed quite costly for the room we had. We were in a four poster bedroom we expected luxury but the room looked like it could do with new decor. Other rooms on our floor looked better both in decor and furniture. Overall I would recommend this hotel. The price we paid would have suited the other rooms we managed to see but unfortunatly not ours.

  • Couple

    We stayed for 2 nights and requested to move rooms on the 2nd night. The staff were very accommodating and helpful and moved us immediately without any fuss.

    The first room we stayed in was in the attic and very small. It was also on the main road which meant we heard traffic and people on the street throughout the night. The bathroom was exceptionally small.

  • Older travelers

    The bed was very comfortable and the full english breakfast was excellent!

  • Couple

    My wife and I found the staff to be perfectly pleasant, however we didn't feel that the tiny room to be of value with others of the 4 hotels we stayed in during our 2 week trip to the UK. Very overpriced. And the failure to extend internet to the whole hotel which was totally unavailable in our room is really not appropriate in a 21st century 'four' star property.
