This is our second visit to the Archway and it definitely won't be our last! Jennifer and Steve are wonderfully welcoming hosts, the room was clean and warm, the breakfast outstanding, the home made cakes and biscuits a lovely treat. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable couple of nights.

My son and I decided to come to the lakes on a last minute weekend break and came across the archway guesthouse. It was a wonderful weekend, the couple that own it were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. My son thought we had moved in with them! It is very cosy and comfortable and is right in... More

If you want cleanliness, great breakfast with lots of choice, lovely hosts and excellent added touches then don't mess about, get this place booked. The hosts come from near where we live in Manchester and that was nice also. If/when we return to the Lakes then we will come back. We normally like to try different places but why risk... More

We've had a great time at Archway. Jennifer and Steve were such great hosts offering impeccable service and great itinerary recommendations. They had a folder of restaurant recommendations and even homemade oatmeal raisin cookies in a container in the rooms which were replenished daily. The lemon cake which they serve in the afternoons was absolutely lovely that my friends and... More

My friend and I came here on Friday until Sunday last week and we loved it. Rooms were a good size with wardrobe space and an ensuite. The couple that run it are lovely and polite and they made a home made cake for the guests which was really yummy! The breakfasts were also absolutely fab with lots to choose... More

First class service, first class accommodation, first class food. From the moment that we arrived (2 hours early) nothing was a problem. Our room was immaculate, the hospitality shown by both Jennifer and Steve was exceptional and the quality and quantity of food was outstanding. We have stayed in several of the hotels/guest house's in College Road (one of which... More

Just returned home from a wonderful 2 night stay at Archway Guesthouse. I arrived at the b&b with absolutely no expectations as a friend has booked the accommodation and I hadn't even looked on Trip Advisor. The b&b is located on a quiet little side street just off the main road in Windermere Village. Parking was simple and we felt... More

We arrived for a two night stay in the middle of the summer heat wave we recently experienced and we were so relieved to see a huge fan in our room when we arrived. There were also some delicious home made biscuits and tea/coffee facilities along with toiletries. The room itself was very comfortable, clean and quiet. Jennifer was a... More
