Excellent hotel directly located on the waterfront. Very friendly staff and a very good breakfast is available. Rooms are spacious, clean and quit. Can be recommended for a weekend on the lake or short vacation. A really beautiful location. Just a short walk into town.

Stayed: March 2018, travelled on business

Another faultless two night stay at the Waterhead. As usual the staff were friendly on hand if needed. We had restaurant and bar meals both excellent.
The rooms are very clean and well equipped a pleasure to return to after two ten mile hill walks.
We stay regularly at the Waterhead and have never been disappointed would highly recommend a visit great venue and location.

We booked a Secrets Escape package at the Waterhead Hotel and could not fault it.
Our room was spacious, warm and comfortable, the staff and service friendly and professional with the food excellent; one of the best English breakfasts I have eaten!
We took our pet Labrador with us, she made herself at home and was reluctant to go home!
Although our first stay at this venue it is hopefully not our last.
We'll be back!

We have visited the Lakes many times. This hotel was on our list of "must do's" and it did not disappoint. Our lakeview room was spacious, clean and very well appointed. The staff were attentive without being overbearing. Smiley and friendly without exception. We took advantage of the free boat trip to Bowness. Took a bus to Grasmere which gave access to Windermere town, Rydal House and Dove cottage. In Grasmere you can visit the graves of William Wordsworth and his family. This is a must do trip for students and fans of Wordsworth. There are plenty of nice cafe's and tea rooms in Grasmere as well as the usual holiday shopping outlets. The return bus dropped us outside the hotel. A lovely day out rounded off with a superb three course meal at the end of the day.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are best

Easily accessible, secure car parking, so many room extras, trouser press, fruit bowl, dressing gowns, toiletries, bottled water the list is endless. The restaurant is fabulously 5* with excellent service and menu selection. Finally the location of this hotel is just breathtaking and relaxing.

Room Tip: Lake view classic room gives you beautiful views of Lake Windermere
