The owners of the hotel, Brian and Margaret, are both amazing hosts. Very welcoming and friendly. Every morning we started a day with a lovely cooked breakfast and chat with Margaret, Brian and other visitors. After 2 nights, it almost felt like home. Rooms and hotel were very clean and the location was perfect. I would definitely stay here again,... More

Hosts Brian & Margaret are a lovely, warm, friendly couple and nothing is too much trouble. The room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast couldn't be faulted, everything cooked to order so always hot and palatable. The location was perfect and we will definitely stay again on our next visit to the lakes. A big thank you Brian... More

Five of us stayed here for a party in Bowness. The welcome was warm and kind-letting us park our car there when we arrived and having our rooms early. They put us on the top floor in bright, comfortable rooms. The hotel was very quiet-a nice surprise as it is on a busy road, but in the evening there is... More

It's so bad, that even though we booked, we decided not to stay at the hotel. Upon arrival at the check in desk, a guy (we presume he was Brian from the reviews here), peeped through the door slowly and said "hi". There was confusion over when we should pay for our stay in which we apologised that it was... More

We stayed here for a night to celebrate my wife's birthday. I can't understand what the negative reviews are about because we were given a warm welcome by Brian who wasn't grumpy at all. In fact, he wasn't grumpy at any point during our stay and even asked if we wanted a second helping at breakfast. Definitely worth the money... More

Good location as three couples met up for a night out in Bowness. Hotel is good location and has parking. Brian and Margaret excellent hosts. Room was spotless. Breakfast was tasty, local produce served on a warm plate.
