This was the first time at the Applegarth with high expectations that may have been too high. Personally, it was a bit of a homecoming as I was born in Cumbria. We had booked for a three night stay.

It is true to say that the room itself met our requirements although taking the lid off the hot tub was a challenge. But we felt that the hotel fell far short in other areas, particularly bearing in mind the room rates.

Firstly, the overall service was lacking. For example, upon arrival, we parked in the car park and telephoned to notify our arrival( as directed for Covid reasons). The response was that they were ready for us. There was no offer to help with suitcases but rather, we had to make a number of journeys up a very steep slope from the car park and then up a long flight of stairs to our room ( no lift). I would expected some assistance as a basic service.

Most of the time, the reception desk wasn’t even manned. Expecting customers to ring bells would be more likely in a basic guesthouse to get some attention.

Upon checking in, we were told rather too curtly, that there was an outstanding balance as if I had been remiss. This was not outstanding but we were told that we had to pay, in full, upfront and not upon departure.

The overall standard of food at both dinner and breakfast was very average. The breakfast menu seems to lack dishes that would generally appear in a luxury establishment. On the last morning, our poached eggs were under cooked. They were left on the plate and we were not even asked why.

Trying to make a dinner reservation was not easy. Seemingly, we were told there were no tables on the last evening of our stay as the individual thought we were non residents!

And a rather small detail, but the staff did not exactly dress for a smart establishment.

It was a rather disappointing stay.

This was our second time at this hotel, and we were not disappointed. We treated ourselves to room 2. Tastefully decorated, large room with great view and fabulous spa Bath, not to forget the large round bed. All very clean, great service and a good choice for breakfast. Location great to park up and enjoy Windermere and Bowness.

Another lovely time at Applegarth. Our favourite hotel in the lakes. Always make you feel welcome. Had a outstanding renovation while been in lock down.
Meals are always beautifully presented and taste lovely.
Lovely bar area to relax and enjoy a cheeky drink or two.
Very central to the heart of the lakes.

We visited Applegarth Villa Hotel in Windermere for our ‘Mini Moon’. The hotel was beautiful, clean and central for the local bars and shops. The staff were amazing, friendly and very helpful, we will definitely be going back and would highly recommend it to anyone else.

Many thanks for a perfect weekend.

WOW! AMAZING! FANTASTIC! Just some of the words to describe the adult only hotel and our stay.
The owners and staff are so lovely and helpful and go above and beyond to make you feel welcome.
We stayed in room 1 suite, luxurious is a great word to describe it.
We didn’t use the restaurant on an evening but did for breakfast.
The breakfast menu has so much choice and everything is cooked to order and tastes delicious.

If there is ever a place to stay in Windermere then Applegarth Villa is the place!

Can’t wait to visit again
