We stayed here for a couple of nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Sue and Andre were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. We were in room 7 which was a lovely large room with a HUGE bed. Everything was spotlessly clean and fresh, towels on the bed and a selection of toiletries were provided. The layout of... More

Stayed here last month for my birthday weekend. Lovely house, tastefully decorated and the lounge is a really nice touch. Breakfast was good and plentiful, with cereals, juice, fruit and a full English or vegetarian breakfast. Andre and Sue are great hosts and Andre showed us a walk which involved getting the ferry across lake Windermere which leads to Near... More

We booked a last minute trip and were so happy with our choice of b&b! The room was lovely and clean, we stayed in room 1 and had a lovely view of the hills from the big window! The lounge downstairs was a really nice touch. Breakfast was delicious and we felt really looked after! André and Sue were really... More

Just got back from a 2 night stay. I agree with all the other reviews in that I cannot fault the Westbourne. Stayed in Room 6 which was small but adequate for us. Lovely and clean and bed so comfy. Shower was a bit unpredictable, had to be aware of it getting really hot. The hosts were really nice and... More

Comfortable room, comfortable bed and really good breakfast. Staff really accomodating and great location in Bowness. On-site parking was a real bonus and felt comfortable and welcomed as soon as we arrived.

Me and my boyfriend decided to visit the Lakes last minute on Saturday, we called a few Guest houses and hotels which were all full, until we came across The Westbourne, which thankfully had one room free- ' The Compact Room' as it was titled. The Westbourne is situated in a perfect location, just off the main road and about... More
