We have just come back from a lovely 1 night stay at Brendan Chase. After reading the reviews on here we were hesitant about our stay but I'm pleased to say the reviews were proven entirely wrong. David was incredibly welcoming and helpful . The b&b was very clean and we had a good nights sleep. Breakfast was fine too.... More

After reading some of the previous reviews, I'd imagine that if anything was likely to put David on edge it would surely be the prospect of half a dozen blokes staying for a night out on the beer after a days walking. And yet, he couldn't have been more welcoming, helpful and accommodating. He was good enough to provide us... More

I have read many of the varied reviews and have just stayed he, so thought I would add my views David the owner is a force of nature, if you are Ok with this - then it is a good place to stay. He is very abrupt, almost milatary, but I think he is trying to be friendly and helpful.... More

My wife and 2 children aged 3 and 10 were due to stay here for 2 nights over new year but left after the 1st night. We don't mind a bit of dated decor, dated bed linen and dated furniture but we defiantly don't like uncleanliness, rudeness and a very cold room....and unfortunately, that's what we got!! We parked round... More

I did read many of the reviews here before staying at the Brendan Chase, and all I can say is, those people who did not enjoy David's hospitality have to question themselves really. The guy is a typical English gentleman, rather eccentric yet very welcoming and friendly too. He was very quick to lay down the rules of the house... More

I was a little apprehensive about staying after reading some of the reviews, but I can not fault my stay here. Felt welcomed even though I was pretty early and took David by a little by surprise. Checked-in quickly. Yes, there are rules about food but found it reasonable and there are plenty of places to eat in town. Given... More

The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good. Good value for money for a B&B. Some reviewers here have commented on the eccentricity of the owner. I think maybe that they just didn't understand his sense of humour. We found him funny and welcoming. I recommend this place if you're on a budget in the Lake... More

Wow .. the owner David should retire NOW! He was rude, condescending and quite impatient. We felt like he was a disgruntled public servant who had been forced to retire and this was what he is now forced to do. It felt like he'd done a course on customer service, so knew WHAT he should do, but it just wasn't... More

From reading previous reviews we knew David would have a dry sense of humor. We arrived knowing not to expect an extremely smiley/welcoming host. It took David a few minutes to warm up to us, but after that he provided us with many great laughs during our stay. We believed when booking that our family room had a en-suite bathroom... More
