Negative Reviews

Located away from Windermere town centre.

Though not considered a major issue, some guests have suggested that Montfort Cottage is not as close to Windermere town centre as they would have liked. Also, the walk back from town is up a steep hill, which might not suit guests with mobility problems.

Walls not completely sound proof.

Though Montfort Cottage is well regarded for its comfort, as already noted, some guests have suggested that the walls are not as well sound-proofed as they could be. Noise that is generated by other guests can sometimes be heard, and this has been an issue for some.

Some bathrooms on the small side.

Most rooms at Montfort Cottage are en-suite, and this is a plus, but some of these bathrooms are described as being only small. Some guests have found these bathrooms being a tight squeeze, and it has affected their comfort during their stay.
