This hotel is gorgeous both as a wedding venue and
My Wife and I held our daughters wedding and stayed at the Lakeside Hotel on 03rd December this year and we can not speak highly enough of the Hotel. The wedding was held in the Windermere suite which is a converted pub just across the road from the main hotel. This is an excellent building with its own self contained bar and kitchen. Spotlessly clean and a nice area to hold a wedding reception in. Beforehand my Daughter was married in the Oak room in the main building of the hotel. It only holds 40 and is a little cosy but a very nice area to hold the ceremony in. After the wedding we stayed in a lake view room which is very nice and comfortable and the view superb. Where the Hotel really came in to its own was in the service. From our first meeting through to the day itself we were treated courteously and professionally. The credit for this must go to the hotel's events manager Verity Stephenson who was superb and one feels that a mid event earthquake would be just a minor irritation for her. This the first and only time I will be the Father of the bride and so we wanted to make it special. There are oodles of pretty Hotels to choose from but if you think you have a choice you haven't. This Hotel is 11 out of 10 and the staff the same. Coming from urban Essex the location is simply stunning with Lake Windermere literally lapping up to the conservatory at the front of the Hotel. Looking in to the distance to see snow topped mountains is idyllic. In my slightly inebriated state I managed to snap the key off in the door at 0100hrs. Expecting a lecture and a bill. The staff did not even blink, the door fixed with the minimum of fuss and no bill to pay. This hotel is gorgeous both as a wedding venue and a place to stay. Our only disappointment was having to leave and return to views of the Thames estuary.
