Fantastic experience. Location is exceptional with great views over the lake and a great overall base to explore Windermere and surrounds. The rooms are tastefully designed and fully-equipped with everything you'd expect of a top hotel. A special thanks to the gentleman (I believe it's Thomas?) for being very accommodating in finding us room at the restaurant despite not booking in advance and generally making us feel very welcome throughout our short but enjoyable stay.

Great room with amazing views.
Staff were very friendly and room was immaculate. Breakfast was good quality and the link with the regent makes for good evenings. They held our luggage before and after check-in and were more than helpful. Fantastic.

We first stayed here in 1989 and stayed numerous times in the 1990's, in 2001, 2002 and the last time in 2004. It had lost it's edge a little for us in the transition from a privately run and owned hotel to part of a chain (Von Essen). Recent developments, a new owner, and good reviews tempted us back and we were not disappointed! It isn't the same as in the days of Francis and Brian - it never could be - but it is still a unique experience. The position on Ullswater couldn't be better (I'd go for the views alone!), the staff were helpful and friendly, the food was exceptional without following fashion. Sharrow Bay always did things it's own way and that was what made it special. The décor and furnishings suit the house and location superbly and I'm pleased to see the Hotel still dares to be different in that respect. We won't leave it as long before our next visit. It is still Simply the Best!

We stayed in the large room one out of two nights. Staff were excellent and breakfast was generous. Handy location with immediate access to restaurants or shops. Note it is on-street parking if you can get it but you are given a permit to show. Only point we did not enjoy was the bed was very uncomfortable, I think the mattress might need replacing. Water pressure is low but that may be a town issue. You need to consider the narrow stairs etc if you have trouble with heavy luggage or mobility but that wasn't a problem for us.
