The Grey Walls is by no means a luxury hotel but it doesn't claim to be. We were made to feel welcome immediately upon arrival and the room, although basic, was spotlessly clean with everything we needed - very comfy bed, good bathroom/shower along with large TV and tea/coffee facilities. Enjoyed a lovely evening meal in the pub downstairs. The... More

We booked the B&B for a one night stopover when attending a wedding nearby. The staff were helpful and friendly, and we had no problems booking in and leaving our bags early so we could attend the wedding, and easy access when we returned late at night. Good night's sleep and tasty breakfast. Good position handy for the A591 to... More

The food was plentiful and tasty and we enjoyed the wide selection of drinks available!! It was a bonus having the... More

We stayed at the Grey Walls (2 adults 1 baby) when the Coniston marathon was on. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the bar/restaurant served decent food at a reasonable tourist price. They had a good selection of beers. As we were up early in the morning we would have missed breakfast so the chef made us some sandwiches... More

We did not manage to get booked in to the B&B as it was fully booked up while we was staying in the area. But we went it most days to eat as the food is fantastic. The pub is run by lovely people and could not be more accommodating, they are brilliant with the kids, we dont often take... More

We have stayed at this hotel a few times and will keep on returning. The hotel is in a really good location, close to the train station and a short walk from Bowness. The pub first of all is brilliant and has plentiful ales, ciders and all sorts even Iron Brew on tap. The pub is really spacious and comfortable... More

We arrived in the main lounge/bar which were abit misleading but didn't cause a problem. The room were massive and very nice the only problem I found is that the views were lovely but when I... More

Spacious room, friendly staff, good service. offers a generous cooked breakfast. Chris behind the bar was particularly helpful. Would stay there again. Tariff for a last minute walk in was reduced to 70 pounds. Accommodation in this area is quite steep.
