    Comfort and convenience

    by

    This is a very comfortable and homey atmosphere in the heart of London. The staff was very professional and helpful and the rooms clean and comfortable. It is not inexpensive, but hotels in London tend to be a little costly.

    Unique Quality: The restaurant is excellent and just a little above moderately priced. The breakfast is a full English one with a good choice - eggs, bacon, toast, juices, porridge, etc.

    Directions: A short distance from Victoria Station. If you come into Victoria and don't have too much luggage, it is in walking distance.

Nice location

by TripAdvisor Member limey923

We spent one night at the Windemere before flying back to the States on April 1st, 2005. Was in a good location just a walk away from Victoria Underground station and we were in the middle of London in 10 mins. Nice size room for London and nice shower although water pressure was low. Good english breakfast was included in room rate. would definitely reccomend.

Loved the Windermere

I know I was there some time ago, however my stay for 6 nights was wonderful. We had a twin bed room with a shower that was clean and we didn't think it was all that small for London hotels. The breakfast included with the room was wonderful and we also ate there one evening and the food was excellent. They also provided room service one evening when we were exhausted from sightseeing. The staff was friendly and very accomodating. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend to my friends. We found the neighborhood quite nice and the walk to Victoria Station pleasant. The only thing I would recommend when giving directions is to let everytone know to go out the back of the station to avoid the long walk around from the front.

Clean and Excellent Location

by TripAdvisor Member jcshore

While in London, England, we stayed at the Windermere Hotel for three nights, from April 14-16, 2005. This hotel is a 10-minute walk from Victoria Station; however we took a taxi to and from Victoria Station (for about $3.50 USA), as we had lots of luggage to carry. Our room was small, but very clean. Rooms are equipped with TV, coffee maker, and blow dryer. We stayed on the third floor, so we got lots of exercise climbing stairs (there are no lifts/elevators). Our room was on the street side, so there was noise of traffic until around midnight; however, beds were clean and comfortable and we had no trouble sleeping. A wonderful breakfast was included each morning -- you can order eggs any way you like them. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We were a 5-minute walk to Victoria Coach, where we caught our bus each morning for sight-seeing tours -- so this was a great location. We loved it.

Loved the Windermere

by A TripAdvisor Member

I have just spent 3 days at The Windermere and its the best place Ive stayed in. The location was central with easy access to all the main attractions.
My room was great being spotlessly clean and serviced every day. I particularly liked their big fluffy towels and facecloths were provided.

Their food operation was unbelievable. The quality and service was comparable to Restaurants where I have paid 2 or 3 times as much.
This is really a little gem of a Hotel!
I really recommend that you try the food in the Pimlico Room Restaurant.
This is the first Hotel that I have stayed in where there is high speed wireless internet access free for all guests. (Also a fixed terminal if you dont have a laptop)
Such a homey place. I definitely recommend it.

Great place to stay

by TripAdvisor Member JoanRockford

This hotel is less than a 10 minute walk from Victoria Station, making it very convenient for many buses and tube connections. It is also less than a five minute walk from Golden Tours, the London Gray Line partner. It is within walking distance of the Tate Britain and the Parliament area. For me another advantage is that it is less than a 10 minute walk from the Roman Cahtolic Cathedral.
The hotel has its own restaurant, and, though there are many others quite near, this was great after a long day of walking and sight seeing. The menu does not change, but there are enough choices. The restaurant is also fully licensed, which means it can sell wine and liquor.
Breakfast is served in the restaurant and is included in the cost of the room. There are juices, fresh fruit combinations, prunes, croissants, yogurt and cereal. Several cooked breakfasts are also available.
The proprietors are very nice and very helpful. The staff consists of several personable young ladies and men. We stayed there 10 nights and, therefore, received a discount on our bill. Our room was small but there was plenty of closet space and drawer space and a very nice full bath with great thick, large white towels!
The only drawback might be that the hotel lacks an elevator and covers several floors. However, we had requested a ground floor or first floor room, and did have one on the ground floor. There is some noise from traffic, but not enough to be bothersome with the windows open. I will definitely plan to stay here again if I am able to return to London

Windermere hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed in a superior double room for 3 nights:
- Clean, spacious (London standard) bathroom, with a standard bathtub and power shower
- Reasonable size of room
- Friendly staff, will try their best to fix problem, if any
- Nice chef, excellent food, must try the egg benedict
- Located on a quiet street and managed to get into sleep at night, even our room was on the ground floor
- Even though it takes only a few minutes to walk from Victoria station to the hotel, don't walk, take a cab, if you don't want to have any unpleasant experience at night
- Will consider Windermere again if we are going to london

Great staff and nice facilities

by A TripAdvisor Member

My mom and I stayed at the Windermere for 3 nights and had a really good experience. We flew into Gatwick so we were able to take the Gatwick Express directly into Victoria which was a quick walk to the Windermere. The staff was very helpful and were available 24 hours a day. Breakfast was included and amazing (eggs made to order!). Internet was free which was so nice. Its a good location in the Victoria area and we were able to take the underground most places (although it was difficult since we arrived on the 17th and many stations and lines are still closed). We would definitely stay there again :)

Nice Visit

by TripAdvisor Member maconfamily

We stayed on July 19, 2005 for one night. Hotel was nice, cozy and clean. Our room was an en-suite (#36) and was very comfortable and clean. It is actually the Premier Double Room photo on their website. Nice standup shower and double bed with plenty of closet space. It was located on the 3rd floor and halls/stairs were narrow, like most properties. It was a very warm day in London, but we opened our window and it cooled down just fine. We even slept with the window closed and the fan blowing. The Windermere is located on a quiet, clean and well lit street. Only 2 blocks away are quite a number of restaurants. We recommend the "Chopstix Xchange" on Wilton Road. We had a super 4 course dinner. Great price!

Although it is about a 10 minute walk from Victoria Station, do take a cab. It will only be about 5-7 Pounds. Well worth it. We did not do this but rolled our suitcases the several blocks..... We took a cab on the return trip.

We had an early flight out of Gatwick and would miss the breakfast time which began at 7:30 AM. The hotel staff was very nice and arranged cereal, toast and jam, juice and coffee for us at 6:30 AM. Very Kind!!

We did our reservations through Londontown as we found a good rate that included breakfast.

I would recommend this property and would stay again.

good location, good breakfast but room basic

by TripAdvisor Member Varrie

The Windermere is located in an area which is ideal if you enjoy walking and want to be away from the city centre. We walked along The Kings Road and across the bridge to Battersea park. This is something that we hadn't planned and was a bonus because of the location. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were pleasant and helpful. There is someone on duty all night which was very good when I became unwell and he was both kind and helpful. However the bedroom we were in could have done with a revamp although it was clean, the stairs are very steep and there is no lift, and the public areas are cramped. The Windermere did offer value for money at London prices but I wouldn't stay there again.
