Checking for availability


One of Windermere’s oldest hotels re-opened early 2017 after a multi-million-pound refurbishment.

Overlooking Lake Windermere, The Hydro Hotel is perfectly situated for both leisure and business guests now offering 78, en suite accommodation, many of which have been completely refurbished, free Wi-Fi, free parking, a restaurant, a bar and 24-hour room service.

Our hotel boasts 1881 Restaurant & Bar, serving local cuisine and seasonal dishes with a local area. When it comes to business, where else can you hold a meeting overlooking the stunning Lake Windermere and the Lake District mountains? Our Ballroom can hold up to 150 people. We also have the ideal settings and rooms for one-to-one meetings or company presentations.

Add to this our very own pool and the array of activities right on our door step, The Hydro Hotel really is the place to stay on your next visit to Windermere.
