Exploring the breath-taking Lake District is a piece of cake from here, with Windermere, Coniston Water, Grasmere and Rydal Water all within easy reach. You can shop till you drop in nearby Kendal and the pretty town on Ambleside is close by as well. To the south, you’ll find the traditional seaside resort of Morecambe, while Keswick lies to the north.

The exquisite Macdonald Old England Hotel offers you more than a hundred superb bedrooms, so why not turn your day into a stay instead?

Staff unbelievably helpful and polite. The spa, gym pool are amazing and clean, food was cooked to perfection and good selection to choose from, my spa experience was to die for, coming back next year and spending two weeks here.

Myself and sister in law had 1 nights stay as we needed a pamper. The facial was amazing, the staff throughout the hotel and spa were very polite and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was immaculately clean and very spacious. We were in a deluxe twin. The views at breakfast are amazing overlooking the lake. Would certainly return and recommend. Thank you MacDonald Old England.

Lovely BUT!!!

We booked an afternoon spa package including a 25 minute treatment. All the staff we dealt with were super helpful, polite and couldn't have been nicer. The only thing to bear in mind is that you're sharing the pool with hotel residents and this, in the school holidays, means that you may have very noisy children splashing and screaming!!!!! Wouldn't recommend it for a chilled out, relaxing time in the school holidays. Also, the furniture on the outside patio was covered in spiders webs and needed a good clean off and we did wait an awful long time for our cream tea to be served, but it was lovely when it turned up. Treatments were amazing and the therapists were so lovely. All in all, good, but never again in the school holidays!!!!!!

The spa area was really modern & clean, with lovely views over Lake Windermere. Unfortunately, this spa doesn't have a Jacuzzi, which was really disappointing. Lunch wasn't included within this spa package & unfortunately the spa didn't allow guests to wear their spa robes for their lunch.
