No wi-fi in the room where we stayed and we had to go to the dining room to get it and it also slow. Room door was old, the bathroom extractor fan was noisy, next door too, all night. Breakfast is ok but not that exceptional. Too many rules in the house and this was the first B&B we have... More

Our room was on the third floor, to which our luggage was taken, small-ish room with the en-suite which was immaculate. The decoration in the bedroom could do with a refurb and a professional touch. Door to bathroom creaked like in a haunted house and so did the room next to us! The bathroom extractor fans were noisy, again in... More

Just spent a couple of nights at Holly -Wood and can only say I wish it had been longer. The owners can't do enough for you and the place is spotless and the breakfast is top notch with all you could ask for. Certainly a place we would stay again when next in the Windermere area. Andrew & Pam

We booked this place after searching for b&bs in windermere. This was not recommended to us and was a little unsure as what to expect once we got there. I mean in all fairness sometimes pictures can be made to make a place look better than what it really is. This Place though was fantastic and certainly give us way... More

Me and my Husband had a lovely 2 night stay at this guest house. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet the owners, who get such lovely comments on here, however the lady that looked after us (whose name I regrettably can't recall) did a fabulous job. The room although compact was immaculate and had everything you need, the location was... More

My fiancé and I stayed at Holly-Wood Guest House over the Easter Bank holiday. Ian and Yana were amazing hosts, never without a warm and welcoming smile, always willing to help. As I said it's the small things that made a big difference and it's these little touches that stands them out from the rest. Welcome cakes in our room,... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Holly-Wood Guest House in mid-April and it was my second visit here after a previous stay in August 2012 and standards are still as high as ever. We arrived and were met by Yana who showed us our room (6) and explained how we could make ourselves more comfortable. Room 6 was... More

We arrived at 4pm and got a warm welcome. We were shown where breakfast is then shown to the room and what was what. They even showed us a fridge so if you bought wine or beer you can put it in the fridge. They even offered milk which was also in the fridge just in case you don't like... More

This was our fourth stay here in the last year or so. Conveniently located in a quiet area of Windermere away from the hustle a bustle of the village centre. The rooms are very comfortable and well decorated, best nights sleep away from home in a very comfy bed. Come and go as you please with your own front door... More
