My husband and I have just returned after a lovely stay at The Westbourne. The owners Sue and Andre were friendly and welcoming. The B&B is worthy of it's 4 star rating. Our room (no3) was very comfortable, with a four poster bed, chaise, ample wardrobe space and numerous electric points.The bedding was top quality and the bath towels lovely... More

For a first time trip to the lakes, this is a really decent bet. Whilst it's not lake-side, it's a very short walk to attractions (and to the oldest pub in Bowness, The Hole In't Wall). Parking on site, clean, pleasant rooms and a really comfortable small lounge with a well stocked and reasonably priced honesty bar if you fancy... More

Had a very rewarding experience when staying there from 12th April 2014 till 15th April 2014. The room was very cozy and the hotel was just far enough to be away from the noise but close enough to walk everywhere. Andre and Sue were excellent in their warmnest and hospitality. The breakfast cooked by them was extremely good. All in... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights recently, and it has to be one of the nicest/friendliest places we have ever stayed in! The hosts, Andre and Sue, were extremely welcoming and catered for all of our needs. Bedroom was very clean, bathroom was very small (will upgrade next time) but again very clean, breakfast was top notch!... More

The Westbourne was the perfect place to stay. It was not only great value, but had very friendly and attentive hosts and the breakfasts were lovely too. Great location, right in town. I will come back to stay here without a doubt.

After staying in Keswick for 2 nights we moved on to Bowness to the Westbourne and wished we could have stayed longer. Andre and Sue were very warm and welcoming our room was lovely nicely furnished with a comfortable bed and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was very well cooked with a good choice and for us "perfect poached eggs " and... More

Andre and Sue are very welcoming and friendly hosts. There is plenty of parking rights outside this lovely looking property. Town is only a 5 to 10 minute stroll away. Breakfast is very good. The rooms are clean and lack nothing. We only stayed here 1 night so I dont think we got the full experience; but other than the... More

Excellent B and B in a great location. Couple of minutes walk into Bowness for all the shops and restuarants. Andre and Sue are excellent hosts and the breakfast was to a high standard. We had the compact double ensuite room, which was perfectly ok for how much time we were actually in the room but the bathroom was very... More
