Had a lovely stay here with my partner for 4 nights, great value for money. We had a warm spacious room with a full English breakfast included. The breakfast also had kippers on the menu which I think are great! The location is great location too, in the centre of Windermere and short walk off Bowness (15-25 minutes)

Really good B and B in a great location in Windermere. The rooms are tidy and the breakfast is excellent. Check in was nice and smooth and the staff were helpful. There were a number of overseas visitors and all were made to feel welcome. Bed was nice and comfortable also

This hotel is just a few minutes walk to Windermere shops. Also a few minutes drive to Bowness and the lake with all of the boat trips available. The hotels was pleasant, The staff very well organized. The Bedroom/Bathroom was very comfortable with all of the usual requirements. However it was let down just a little by a cracked sink....
