    Enjoyed a relaxing stay at The Hydro. The views are stunning, looking over the lake and beyond. The swimming pool, sauna and jaquzzi are a nice bonus. We could not decide to go out for dinner or stay at the hotel, we chose to dine in and was amazed by the quality, presentation and value of the food. It made our stay extra special, the bar prices were reasonable too. No big shock as we paid the bill. The location up the hill is a short distance from the town but would be difficult for some - especially in high heels! Enjoyed a lake cruise and would recommend the trip to Ambleside. The bed was very comfortable and had a very good nights sleep as was also very quiet. Would recommend and stay again.

    Slight negative - The breakfast was not as enjoyable as would have expected, not much choice/variety and although the service from the staff was excellent.

    Nice hotel available for the one night it was required and it was big and anonymous. Rooms were spacious and in then main clean.

    The beds were far too hard and therefore uncomfortable. There was somone else's dirty sock left in the room. Television was easy to use and poorly tuned.

    Breakfast

    Swimming pool had a leak on our first day and wasn't available to use

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Up a slight hill but very near to the town with all the bars and restaraunts and near to the lake.

    Needs a bit of updating but was comfortable.

    Food and friendly staff.Great breakfast

    Could do with painting the out-side of building

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Good buffet breakfast, wide selection

    Apart from being overpriced, the hotel is much in need of renovation and modernisation. Our toilet had a door with paint peeling off and our room was cramped and had a rather worn out appearance.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The views across Lake Windermere are breathtaking.The Hotel was just far enough out of town to avoid the noise of the town traffic.

    I loved the character and old fashioned comforts.All the staff were excellent.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    the views are great and the general atmosphere is good. Enjoyed the range of bar snack available when I arrived late in the evening

    the breakfast was a little indifferent generally more grease than I would want and some items not as hot as I would like

    Good Car Park, Good Food and Good service

    The hidden step down into bedroom area of our room my partner fell and injured herself badly breakfast in room was late and too cold to eat even the tea was Lukewarm

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Good breakfast, Room good quality with high level of furnishings.

    Thin walls meant we were kept awake by noisy residents in next door room till 2am. Only fair value for money at best

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The bedrooms were quite large, the bed extremely comfortable. The bar areas were relaxing and comfortable.

    The room was described as having lake views, however in order to see the lake it was necessary to look out of a side window. The breakfast fresh fruit offering was extremely limited. The decoration was tired. There was no attempt made to clear the entrance and car parking areas which were highly dangerous and like a skating rink.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    It reflected a great deal history and closeness with the surrounding area, with good views over the surrounding landscape. The staff were helpful and attentive.

    I felt that although it had a good deal of history attached to it, and the location gave it a great viewpoint, the hotel needed some TLC (ie update some window frames and other minor areas) to bring it up to where it deserves to be. I would definitely visit again, regardless of these minor points.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Great location. Good breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff.

    Slightly faded grandeur, but good value through Booked.net. I would not have paid more for this room, which was large, but at the back and facing a wall and a rock which was part of the hill upon which the Hydro is built.

  • Couple
    10.0

    The receptionist was so helpful, we were put into the gorgeous honeymoon suite with amazing views

    Not enough milk put in rooms for tea/coffee
