    “Despite free wifi being advertised, there was no wifi at all.”

    Very dissappointed by this (and used up all of my data for the month). Welcome pack in property states 'there is no wifi in this property' (i have a picture of this). ...

    Very dissappointed by this (and used up all of my data for the month). Welcome pack in property states 'there is no wifi in this property' (i have a picture of this). Beds really uncomfortable, one held up with wooden blocks and other matress had huge lumps and bumps in it, didnt have a decent nights sleep the whole week. Other than that it was clean, modern and a pleasant stay but wouldnt return due to wifi and beds. Would also reccommend bowness as a better location, not much happening in windermere
