The excellent rating for this hotel is very well deserved - an absolute gem. Nothing was too much trouble for Shirley and Vince. The room we had was great, breakfast was very enjoyable and whatever queries we did have were never too much trouble. We will definitely be back sometime.

The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and well practised at advising us on the best route into Bowness & where different restaurants were in the town. The room was very clean & the four poster bed very comfortable, the shower also excellent. The choice for breakfast is... More

We really enjoyed our stay here for the weekend. The room was great, really comfy bed, great shower and everything was clean. The breakfast was excellent and we felt very at home. It's in a good location too. I'd definitely recommend this B&B.
