We stayed over valentines weekend we were in room 9 which you access from outside room was lovely well decorated and lots of porch space for outdoor wear of bikes. The main building was elegantly decorated, in a beautiful setting with lovely views close to the town & attractions. The b&b's host & hostess were very hospitable, friendly & helpful.

We had booked a small double that was a good size, well decorated and maintained and clean. Their was a file in the room of local information which was very useful... More

We stayed here just after we got married for a few nights and what a lovely stay. The owners work incredibly hard to maintain the hotel creating a very homely feel about the place. The rooms are immaculate and so comfortable. The morning breakfast was very tasty. The hotel is also a short walk to town where there is an... More

The Westbourne is a lovely house in Bowness. It is a short walk to the town centre. We were in room 9 which was accessed outside of the main house. There was a small area when you entered where you could change your footwear and then a door into the bedroom. It was compact but perfectly adequate for our needs.

Lovely B&B, great central location with parking. Lovely bright, clean, cosy room with a view. Really comfy bed, and a tasty breakfast with plenty of choice and great coffee this morning. Couldn't have asked for better! Thank you.

We had such a lovely 1 night stay here. Sue & Andre were very accomodating. Our room was very clean and was so much bigger than expected. Its in a very good location, less than 5 minutes wall into town and a 10 minute walk to the lake. So happy I booked The Westbourne :-)
