The Windermere hotel was wonderful!! The staff was very friendly and informative. The room was lovely and very clean and the breakfast was delicious. The hotel is also in a great location. Victoria is a very clean and well lit area of London the people were very friendly at all the shops and restaurants. Victoria Station is about a 10 minute walk as […] well as Buckingham Palace and other places of interest. if you are in need of wi-fi then you will not be disappointed. Not only is it free, which is rare in London, but the signals were strong in every part of the hotel that we visited. We will definitely stay at The Windermere again and highly recommend it to all.

Quaint family operated hotel. Staff and owners very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was always ready and fresh meal to get the days started. Enjoyed being able to come back and relax at the bar and visit with people we were traveling with. Close to bus/train station and good restaurants. Great having the fans in the room! It made the room comfortable […] and gave a slight humm that would take away any noise. Lovely place!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything was great. What was inspiring was the help they gave to a Yank whose wallet was stollen and only had euros and dollarsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent, but not luxurious"
Decent place. Staff was nice. Beds were hard and uncomfortable with scratchy sheets. Small rooms, but typical of Europe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful place for traveling adults"
The staff of this wonderful hotel were friendly and attentive. They helped in any way requested, making reservations, directions, restaurant recommendations and travel suggestions within the city. The room was CLEAN and comfortable. Every evening upon return from a day of sightseeing the room was ready for us - tidied with beds made. Also, the breakfast […] was delicious and the staff in the dining room were terrific - efficient and pleasant. The location of this lodging is perfect for the sightseer - near the underground and the bus station. Perfect spot to stay and I would highly recommend this spot to any adult traveling in London!

We would be happy to stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Satisfactory hotel close to Victoria Station"
I found this hotel on the Internet when I was looking for a place to stay for one night in London because I could not catch a flight out that evening. The hotel worked out fine. It is about a 5-10 min walk from Victoria Station. My room was on the ground floor, with the sidewalk just outside, and there was some loud, boisterous singing from a nearby […] pub around midnight or a bit later. But it did not last for long and I was able to get a good night's sleep. Upkeep of the hotel seems fine, the room was clean, security is good, the free breakfast was pleasant, and it was generally a good experience. It is not the fanciest of hotels, and might not be ideal for a long stay, but for those (like me) looking for a moderately-priced place for a short stay, it was entirely satisfactory. I would go there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The Windermere Hotel was attractive, comfortable and extremely clean. The staff could not have been nicer or more accomodating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in O'Connell Street"
The location of this hotel is perfect for shopping, partying, and going back and forth to the airport. I stayed on night, checked out, went to London for a couple of days. I had to return to Dublin for my return flight to USA but I had not booked a hotel for my last night in Dublin... my choice was clear and I was not gonna risk having a different experience […] with another hotel. Highly recommended! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Enjoyable Stay, Great Customer Service"
On a one-night stay in London, we chose to stay at the Windermere Hotel. From the start, our experience was great. When we arrived (they allowed a late arrival) we were assisted by the front desk attendant. He provided us with a small map of the area and sites close to the hotel and also a larger map of the greater area of London, both of which proved […] to be very helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was one of the best that we had while in Europe. The staff was very helpful in providing us with what we wanted/needed. Also, because check out was at 11am and we were not leaving London until later on that night, they offered to store our luggage at no additional cost for as long as we needed so that we could go enjoy the sites of London. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to any and everyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"best hotel of the trip!"
We stayed here on the last day of our trip. We were tired of travelling and lugging suitcases and had an unpleasant hotel on the prior leg of our trip. When we got to the Windermere, it was like finding an oasis in the desert. We were very pleased with every aspect of our stay, although we only stayed one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Solid and much as advertised"
Helpful staff, rooms not quite like the pictures but nice and clean. Tight bathroom but good and workable, not completely clean. Great breakfast as well as warm ala carte choicesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and Comfortable"
The Windermere was convenient to many of a London-tourist's must-see sights - Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Parliment and Westminster Abbey are all within walking distance, as are Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery - and to Victoria Rail, Coach, and Underground Stations. The staff was pleasant and professional. Breakfast was very good and […] evening meals in cafe downstairs were good, as well. The facility is clean and comfortable.

"great hotel... a little bit excentred"
very quiet very nice team very good english breakfast includedGenuine Expedia guest review
Our room was quite small, which is to be expected in any big city. Our "double" bed felt more like a 3/4; we had to exercise great care when turning over so as not to fall! On the other hand, the staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make sure that we understood all of our options, from the Underground to the best way to get to Heathrow. […] The location was terrific. Despite being so close to busy Victoria Station, it was very quiet on our street. Many excellent restaurants within a short walk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Helpful staff, clean, comfortable"
I've never met such an accommodating staff at a hotel. I was traveling with my elderly mother and they were very helpful with her needs. I was very comfortable as well. The staff was available to recommend restaurants, offer directions, and were overall extremely professional. I especially liked the availability of a restaurant on site and the late […] hours for dining. I will recommend to anyone looking for a good, centrally located hotel.

"Great place to stay in London"
The Windermere is a very nice, small hotel with a friendly, helpful staff on duty 24/7. Our room and ensuite were both bigger than we expected them to be, and decorated beautifully. It's only a five-minute brisk walk to Victoria Station, which lets you connect with all the major city-center sights by tube. The staff recommended some nice places to eat […] in the area. Hot breakfast menu is a little limited (no pancakes or waffles), but the food is good and service is fine. Recommend as a good choice for a family vacation or a romantic getaway.

"Quiet secure location in central London"
No complaints except we were first told the wrong password for the wifi. It would be nice if a small fridge was in the room. Excellent breakfast and nice family hosts. There is a small newsstand store one block away where you can buy a few snacks, etc. Also a pub nearby. Other restaurants near Victoria station, a five-minute walk away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice London Hotel"
Great hotel, good location. Nice breakfast. This is a family owned hotel and it felt very comfortable. We were offered all kinds of help in finding locations in London and they offered free luggage storage.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a lovely little hotel. The breakfast was great. The room was small, but cute and clean. There is no air conditioning. Fortunately we didn't need it this trip but in the future might. The staff was very helpful in finding good places for us to eat. The location is hard to find from Victoria Station. Overall we were happy with it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stayed for Olympics"
Good hotel. Staff friendly. Breakfast each morning. All around great stay for olympicsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming and Well-Kept"
Perfect location! Off the beaten path, but so accessible to all things London! I was there for the Olympics and sight seeing so I didn't think that I really cared about quality of the hotel. But, once I was there, the Windermere actually turned out to be a pleasant surprise!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Small London hotel in residential neighborhood"
We were in a family room but it was really, really tiny! Barely enough room to move around to get to the (tiny) bathroom with 3 large suitcases in the way. Just be prepared for a BIG DIFFERENCE between what you get in a 4 star hotel in America and what you get in Europe. Pluses are that the breakfast was very substantial and everything was very clean. […] Staff also very helpful. The hotel was in a really great location for getting around London. Close to Victoria station with restaurants nearby. It just seemed overpriced for what we got, but I guess that is because of our exchange rate: Everything in London was just SO EXPENSIVE from the price of restaurant meals, souvenirs and admissions to various attractions. I never thought I would have to pay to see a church (Westminster Abbey and St. Paul's Cathedral)! But all government-sponsored museums are free...go figure! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fabulous in Every Way"
Loved it, especially loved the helpful, warm staff and how clean everything was. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the location was very good. The rooms are small but it is Europe so I expected that and you can't avoid some stairs even with the new elevator but I would come again and recommend it to anyone!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Victoria Station"

"Close to so much in London!"
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Windermere Hotel. It is a quaint and lovely inn with warm and pleasant service. We were visiting our daughter who was on a study abroad program. We would love to visit London again and we would easily stay at The Windermere Hotel. My favorite moment: We had to leave the hotel early to get to Heathrow for an early […] morning flight and the morning receptionist made sure a continental breakfast with fresh coffee was ready! What a treat! We highly recommend The Windermere! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but friendly"
This hotel is in the Westminster District, but is quite a long walk to Victoria tube station. The personel were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very nice. We also enjoyed dinner one evening in their small resturant. The room itself was very small with a tiny bathroom and a very uneven floor. One day it was cool and rainy but they had already […] turned off the heating system, so we warmed up with some hot tea. Our room was on the third floor and although there was an elevator we still had to climb down 4 steps and then up another 4 steps to get to our room after taking the elevator to 3rd. Rather challenging carrying our luggage. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Homey and quaint"
Hotel was more of a bed and breakfast. Location was great. Short walk to the tube and we found a few neighborhood restaurants that we liked. Front desk staff was superb! Very helpful and extremely pleasant. Room was very cramped for 3 adults but then I am used to American hotels. Loved the big bath towels but would have liked to have smaller face towels […] too. They need a new dishwasher. Flatware always looked dirty and spotted. Wouldn't recommend this for summer. We stayed there during a warm spell and there an was only an electric fan in the room. NO air conditioning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Delightful two days in London"
We arrived at 8:00 AM and left our bags with the hotel staff while we explored london until our 3:00 PM check-in time. Hotel staff were all very helpful. The included breakfast was quite good, a buffet selection plus eggs, sausage and bacon cooked to order. Our room was a larger room with a king bed, plenty of space and a very nice modern bathroom with […] shower. In room coffe/tea service was provided. Our room faced the street, but was very quiet. We will use this hotel again on our next trip to London. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Windermere Hotel - Comfort and convenience"
The Windermere Hotel is very old but well maintained. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located within walking distance to the Victoria underground station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A First Time to London Impression"
We arrived to a friendly greeting and accommodating attitude, and were made to feel welcomed and valued. All staff were helpful and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They were available with useful information regarding the city, its highlights and the best ways to get around, including a convenient way to get to the airport when not […] going by tube or rail. The location is ideal for out-of-towners; near to Victoria Station and convenient to neighborhood shops, markets, restaurants and pubs. The room was a bit smaller than I like (a la Europe), but was clean and well maintained for an older building. The building and the neighborhood have lots of character. Overall, a great value for a mid-budget traveler: location, friendly staff and ambience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient and Welcoming"
The Windemere Hotel near Victoria Station is a gem. The owners/staff are personable and helpful. They are gracious hosts rather than impersonal employees. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The breakfast choices ready one for an active day with many sights within easy walking distance or via public transportation from Victoria Station. We also […] had a lovely dinner and enjoyed chatting with our chef. We'll be staying here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The owners and staff were excellent. The breakfast was excellent. The hotel rooms are small and narrow. A bit difficult but..if that doesn't bother you, go for it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The management and staff were excellent and most attentive. The location if wonderful and easy for transportation or walking. Best elevator we have found in a small European hotel. On Thanksgiving the restaurant offered a special Thanksgiving meal which was delightful. Would absolutely recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This is no 4 star hotel, maybe a 2 star"
We can not recommend this hotel as highly as recommended by hotels.com. The room was so small that it was impossible to find enough room to open 2 suitcases. The sink was in the bedroom next to the entry door which opened to the main hallway giving no privacy. The bathroom is so small you literally do not have enough room to walk in front of the toilet […] to get in the shower (total area including shower floor is 3X5 feet). The Victoria station is the closest tube and is over 1/2 mile away and takes 15 minutes to walk to, but is in a quiet and safe neighborhood. The best attributes of the Windermere were the front desk is manned by a very helpful and friendly staff 24 hours a day and the included breakfast was very good. This hotel is for the individual who likes a quaint, dainty and off the beaten track B&B. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice staff good location"
The location, safe neighborhood andd it was very close to the Victoria station for getting around England. I was pleased with the cleanliness of the room and the quality of food in the dining room.
