We stayed for my wife's 65th birthday. Very well kept and nicely decorated. Well located near to the main street with lots of restaurants and pubs. Comfy bed. En suite was small. Lovely full English breakfast, though I missed a runny egg, it was hard. Small matter. Overall a good place with nothing to complain about. The Wi if was... More

The property stands about 100 foot from the main road in Bowness. It seems to be part of a mini chain with the Eastbourne being immediately opposite and The Melbourne being close by. The property is kept immaculate and is welcoming in a very quaint manor. my room no. 5 overlooked the front elevation. It was a good sized room... More

Having stayed in a B & B/guest house in the Lake District previously, I did have reservations at the time of booking, especially as the price was so reasonable. I thought it was too good to be true. I can honestly say, it was a pleasure from start to finish and we were there for 4 nights. The couple, Andre... More

I booked a one night stay as a birthday treat for my partner, we have stayed at The Westbourne before and enjoyed a warm welcome from Sue and Andre, they are perfect hosts. The B&B feels 'warm and loved' the rooms we have stayed in are beautifully decorated and well presented, a home from home.

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

Spent one night at this lovely B & B warm welcome received. We had room 9 which was accessed from the front of this building small but beautifully formed. Bathroom looked recently fitted my husband commented that the shower screen was top of the range as he is a plumber but shower was only electric so pressure not as with... 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
