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 :-)

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.
