We loved this B&B. Not the cheapest available but definitely great value for money. Really clean, pleasant rooms, nice bathrooms and great showers. Great breakfast and hosts were very helpful. Will definitely stay again!

we could not have been happier with our choice of B&B and intend to return. The B&B is in a great location, just a short walk to restaurants and bars. Our welcome was great, relaxed and informal, yet professional. The room was delightful, a clean contemporary finish and they seem to have thought of everything from soaps and toiletries, towels...

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

We stayed at the Westbourne while visiting the Lake District. The place was lovely and clean and the staff (owners) were very friendly. Our double room was comfortable and clean, and breakfast was perfect. Thank you, will definately return and will book direct with the owners next time.

This is a very nice B&B, very homely. The hosts were great, very helpful and very polite. Our room was very nice, but a bit on the small side, but we did pay for that, so it was expected. The breakfast was great, good selection of cereals and great service throughout. The wifi was not great, was very slow, but... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights at end of July passing through on our way up to Scotland. The setting is fantastic - just a short walk into the town. Room had everything we needed and was clean and well presented. Bathroom looked recently refurbished so no complaints there either. Breakfast was superb - we enjoyed a hearty full... More

I stayed here for three nights and will echo what the other recent reviews are saying. This is a very nice and comfortable B&B just up the road from Lake Windermere. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is flexible and of a good standard. Had one minor issue in that one of our blinds broke but this... More

A cosy bed and breakfast on Lake Windemere, perfect for a weekend getaway. After staying here once it was an easy decision on where to stay again on our return back through the area. The owners are friendly and welcoming and you can tell that they take great care and pride in their b&b. The rooms are spacious and comfortable... More
