Cartmel is a spacious and sumptuous suite located at the back of the hotel with views towards the stunning Langdales. The size of the bathroom rivals most hotel bedrooms. If you enjoy a feeling of space, this is the room for you. It has a high lofted ceiling, solid black walnut flooring, and designer furniture throughout (Philippe Starck, Kartell and Frank Hudson). It has a light and airy feel, just open the double doors of your Juliette balcony and take in the views over Windermere’s rooftops to the fells beyond.
The bed is second to none. It’s a massive super king, designed by Frank Hudson with his signature silver leaf finish, with a deep comfy mattress and cool white bed linen. And, if you want to add to the drama, you can pre-order some romantic or cheeky touches for the room.
Now that’s what we call a bathroom! Mood lighting, White Company toiletries, the thickest of towels, designer tiling, a huge whirlpool bath (built for two), a massive walk-in power shower, heated rails, and funky LCD lit-up taps.

Perfect from the moment we arrived"We stayed 2 nights in the Cartmel Suite for our honeymoon weekend and as you may have guessed it was perfect from the moment we arrived until we unfortunately had to say goodbye. If I could give 10 out of 5, I would. Perfect walking distance within Windermere for eating and shopping, especially for nice toiletries for the huge air bath with its mood lighting and TV. Decor and facilities were second to none and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Room service food was very nice with no skimping on portion size and the mini bar it was unbelievably well stocked. I couldn't recommend it highly enough."
Amazing hotel!"Stayed in the Cartmel Suite for my birthday over the bank holiday weekend, the hotel, room, staff and food were all exceptional. The bathroom was luxurious, the bed extremely comfortable, breakfast served in our suite was fabulous. We will definitely be booking again."
Perfect stay!"I took my partner to stay at The Windemere Suites for her 30th birthday. I wanted it to be special for her and the hotel certainly lived up to my expectations! It was amazing. We stayed in the Cartmel Suite. It was luxurious and spacious. It was immaculate and clean as well. The bathroom with a massive air bath in it and a TV on the wall was fabulous! The perfect breakfast was served in the privacy of our suite which we loved. We had no complaints whatsoever. The staff were friendly and helpful and it was the best hotel I have ever stayed in. We will most definitely be going back and would recommend this hotel to people."
Awesome"Stayed for one night in the Cartmel suite. Very good first impressions - looks very smart from the outside, and we were greeted by a friendly lady on arrival who offered us drinks while we were checking in and to take our luggage upstairs for us. Room was spotless and warm for our arrival - definite feeling of luxury throughout our stay. The bathroom was without a doubt the best part. The colour changing lighting of the mirror, shower and bath were such a nice touch and the underfloor heating was awesome. Towels and bathrobes were lovely and soft and clean. The bath products provided were nice and we left with very soft hair after using the shampoo! The bed was ridiculously large and comfy, we had such a good night’s sleep! Liked the fact you could turn all the various lamps off with one light switch by the side of the bed. The complimentary tea and hot chocolate were pleasant, with pretty interesting looking cups and saucers. We didn’t touch the mini bar, but it was well stocked. You're given a pretty decent choice on arrival of what you want for breakfast the next day - Full English, veggie options, even choices of toast, cereal and cold and hot drinks to go with it. It arrived at the time we selected at our room exactly on time, lovely and warm. Location is brilliant, pretty central in Windermere, really easy to find and a nice easy walk to the lake and the centre. We were emailed a good list of restaurants in the area for dinner, and also given a map on arrival. The room was really quiet, no noise from any other rooms and we had the French doors open the following morning and there was next to no outdoor noise, which was lovely. "
