My boyfriend & I are currently travelling back home after a 2 night stay in Windermere, and are already planning our trip back there! We could not fault Storrs Gate House at all. We arrived around 12.30 and were greeted by Vince who was very welcoming. He showed us to our room which was number 7, the Queen Ann room.... More

We stayed in room 7 and the four poster is very impressive! Luxury shampoo,conditioner, shower gel and body cream were supplied in the ensuite. There was... More

Award Winning 5 star and we're not surprised! Very welcoming as soon as we walked in, Upgraded to a suite room at no extra cost, Room was lovely, Minibar was reasonably priced and the breakfast was delicious!! It was our first stay in Windermere and we will be coming back whenever we stay in Windermere again... Highly recommended :)

Stayed here at the weekend for my husband's 50th birthday. We had a lovely time, even though it rained the whole stay! Shirley and Vince were very welcoming hosts. We stayed in room 2, the Jacobean Suite, which was perfect for us. Breakfast was amazing, even a plate of fruit made to look so pretty! Full English was cooked perfectly... More

We were supposed to stay here on Saturday 5th December but due to the flooding we were unable to get there. We spoke to the owners several times throughout the journey and they were most helpful giving us different routes to try. In the end we had to give up as the roads to the hotel were so treacherous due... More

Very impressed. Clean, big rooms, 4 poster beds, room fridge and bar, nice choice breakfast. Proprietors are lovely. This is high end bed and breakfast. Good value. Well positioned to walk into Bowness or taxi quite cheap.

From the moment you step through the door you are made to feel completely at home and very welcome. The house is warm and welcoming, with cosy sitting areas and a lovely... More

Came for a 1 night break for our anniversary with my girlfriend. Both young 20s however never felt like that should be a problem however we soon came to the assumption that the owner did not like us because of this! The room was lovely and comfy loved the 4 poster. Surprised we didn't stay in the room longer considering... More

We welcome your feedback, as we do with all our guest reviews, but were astounded to read that you felt there was a problem regarding your age. We have welcomed all our guests equally for 16 years, this being the first mention of an unfriendly reception. Possibly the fact that you were only with us overnight, over a fully booked... More

Everything about Storrs Gate House is perfect. Our room was lovely with everything we needed, breakfast was excellent, nothing was too much trouble for Vince and Shirley and their staff.
