My wife and I have just had two excellent nights at The Westbourne. Andre and Sue (the owners) were outstanding hosts who cannot do enough for you. Their knowledge of the area is exceptional and they can give you a full itinery of things to do. The guest house itself is well maintained and in a gorgeous setting which is... More

Cosy and friendly. Really nice B&B. Owners were lovely. Open fire in the living room. Beautiful clean and modern bedroom with large views. Nice touch is that there is a beer fridge with an honesty book. So nice in today's day and age. Fabulous breakfast. I will definitely be visiting again.

A guest house of character with a warm welcome, friendly owners, comfortable and quiet rooms and ample breakfast. A beautiful building in a delightful part of town and just a five minute walk from the centre for shops, bars and restaurants. I will return here, I loved it.

Lovely B&B we could not have been happier with our choice and intend to return. The B&B is in a great location, just a short walk to restaurants and bars in both Bowness and Windermere. The room was really tastefully contemporary in soft browns, beige and pink. The shower room though small was well stocked with complimentary toiletries and white... More

We have stayed for two nights in the past and definitely we will come back. The proprietors are very friendly and welcoming. The room was beautiful, we have stayed in Room 9 which is on the ground floor, very clean and cosy. Would recommend and we are thinking to go back this month.

We stayed here on our way home, this being the third and most expensive B&B - the others were in Ambleside and Edinburgh. Initial impressions were ok, and the hosts were certainly friendly and welcoming. We had room 1 which has a lovely view out of its large window down over the town. The decor was ok, but definitely tired.... More
