Positive Reviews


Explore Lakes District and Windermere.

You will find the inn to be particularly well-placed for basing yourself during Lakes District exploration, as it is right in the middle of Windermere with good transport connections all round and plenty of dining and shopping in the surrounding streets.


Reasonably priced and friendly.

The Elleray found favour with guests considering it is comfortable, reasonably priced and run by friendly and polite owners who will attentively field requests.


Traditional pub fare.

What you will find in the bar restaurant is honest pub fare in large helpings, and the bar serves real ales and plenty of other local and imported drops.

Negative Reviews


Beds not the best.

A few of those who stayed at The Elleray considered the beds to be uncomfortable and also not the sturdiest they had slept on.


Rooms require some work.

With some furnishings in disrepair, the windows appearing a bit dodgy and the decor also appearing a bit dated, some found the rooms to be needing attention.


Pub with rooms.

A handful of guests reminded that this inn is a pub with rooms, not a gastropub, and the bar can be busy and lively with locals, and those looking for towels and sheets to be changed daily may be disappointed.
