This review is for Windermere

I purchased wi fi �20 for season. I have been to two sites Chipping Camden and Windermere. On both locations the service was very poor. I feel this is not acceptable, when I complained at both sites the answer was it can be difficult when busy. I have had better service on sites where the Wi Fi was free. I feel as the club charges �20 the service should be better

On our latest visit to Windermere, we were accompanied by our family of 12, who were in tents,the wardens did a marvelous job in getting us all together considering they all came on different days and a great time was had by all! I feel that I have to comment on one issue that all the family complained about and that is the fact that the showers were not hot enough, so please address this Windermere, other than that ---- a lovely site that I would recommend to anyone!
