Myself and my Husband stayed in the retreat for our Mini moon. It was out of this world, pure luxury. We were able to have a 3 course meal served in the retreat and this was delicious. Everything here is such high quality and it is spotlessly clean. The Jacuzzi bath was a real treat and I would recommend the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this quaint little guest house for one night early September and can safely say it was a perfect little trip away. The guest house is easy to find and is on the straight road down into Windermere's town centre - which for those who haven't visited before, is absolutely lovely and adheres to everybody's... More

We booked this break last minute. Found this B & B after having looked for several hours for a reasonably priced hotel. Almost impossible however this B&B was a good find. Lovely room and very spacious. The hotel staff were very attentive and could not do enough to make our stay special. Breakfast was reasonable but has been cooked earlier... More

Perfect location, just a short walk away from town centre with interesting shops, selection of restaurants, but location quiet, great staff friendly and nothing too much trouble. Breakfast absolutely gorgeous Thank you Howbeck will definitely visit again

Having picked the Howbeck for our honeymoon, we were not disappointed. The decor, staff, food and service were faultless. We are lucky enough to have travelled all over the world and were spoilt for choice for our honeymoon, but have to say, the Howbeck matches the best hotel experiences we've ever had. Keep up the good work, we will be... More

Fantastic service, great location, wonderful room (greenburn) the breakfast was also lovely. I would recommend this to anyone. It was quite pricey, but then I did opt for the romantic package on top too, this I probably wouldn't do again because although it was nice, it didn't warrant the extra expense. The staff are very kind and friendly. We had... More

I stayed in the Glenridding room for 1 night as a special treat with my partner at the beginning of our holiday to break up a long drive. Had booked to stay in Meregill as this room had a kingsized bed, but when we arrived we had been moved rooms. Only realised this when filling in hotel form, would have... More

As many people seem to say, we got quite a surprise arriving at the howbeck. It's a small B+B with its location being the best thing about it, right next to windermere. We arrived here to be pleasantly met by the receptionist however from there everything was just simple, not 5 star quality at all. Our room, Glenridding, was very... More

Myself and my partner stayed for 2 nights in the second week of August to celebrate her birthday and we stayed at the Retreat Suite. The hotel itself is very quaint and located about 10 minutes walk from Windermere Station. We were welcomed upon arrival and shown to the suite. It is very nice, spacious, cleaned very well and a...

Wanted a couple of nights away before our summer hols and came across this hotel. Very central,friendly staff, lovely breakfast, we didn't eat there but we had a menu in our room for a local restaurant which was to die for! I must say I was expecting something totally different after looking at the website. The bathrooms are very slick... More
