Amazing staff, Dave is such a lovely man, who help us find routes around for a nice walk as well as provide a great service on the pub. We had to come downstairs after our day out to thank him for his great tips!! Amazing breakfast, good value for money with great views. The staff couldn't be better, the room comfy and lovely, spacious... I dream with sleeping on that glorious bed forever! Everything I can say is not enough, we had the best weekend ever despite the weather (Storm Ciara kicked in the second night). Definitely recommend this place!
I would have liked to stay longer!!
Good location in the centre of Windermere town, close to railway/bus station. Sort walk to pubs, cafes and shops. Warm, clean and dry. Fresh towels daily. Great shower with plenty of hot water. Dog friendly.
Room was advertised as a small single room and it was "small"! The bed was not a full size bed. It would be fine for someone 5'9" or under, but I'm 6' and it was not really long enough to fully stretch out. Devoid of character with no paintings or art work on the walls. Storage space limited with no room for a small wardrobe, storage being limited to a hook on the back of the door.
Location is brilliant, handy having the pub downstairs and although we didnt have food here the menu was varied. The bar manager who checked us in was lovely, really polite and friendly.
The room was very outdated and nothing like the photograph advertised. Paint was crumbling off the walls, there was a huge damp patch with the paint flaking off. Bathroom ceiling covered in mould and the shower door was broke so didnt close properly. The fan on the window was broken and hanging out leaving the circular hole in the wall so bathroom was freezing. Also can hear everything going on in the other rooms, people talking, doors banging etc.
Everything better than we thought
The owner was lovely and welcoming. The hotel was dog friendly which we always want. The room was tidy and had sufficient amenities.
It was not listed online as the main facilities were closed Monday Tuesday. We were let in fine but it was a bit off putting to arrive at a closed hotel. The main problem was the bed, the mattress was very old, worn and uncomfortable. We actually ended up leaving a day early because the bed was so uncomfortable. Unfortunately can’t really comment on much else as the facilities listed online were closed I.e the bar and breakfast.
The Grey Walls offers a pleasant stay in Windermere for those traveling for business or leisure. There's plenty to do nearby, with Orrest Head, and The World of Beatrix Potter all just a both distance away. After a long day of sightseeing, guests can retire to the comfort of the hotel.
