The WelcomHeritage Windamere hotel is split into two wings: The WelcomeHeritage Windamere and Little WelcomHeritage Windamere.
The former, based in the main house called Villa, is furnished in traditional colonial style with flowery chintz curtains and a strict embargo on the intrusion of the modern television or telephone. This wing, whose suites have names as quaint as their décor, includes a honeymoon cottage, the House of the Eighth Happiness and Little Peppers.
The Little WelcomHeritage Windamere has bowed to modern exigencies and while it retains all the traditional qualities of hospitality, its décor is more modern and the rooms have televisions and telephones.
