This B&B is a pretty average one at best. We had a one night stay in the superior room - which I think only went by this name due to the size. First impressions are that the decor is nice and the room is very spacious. On closer inspection, things really weren't not practical. The desk with the tea &... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lengthy review. However a number of the issues raised could have been dealt with had you spoken with myself or a member of staff at the time. Your reservation for our Superior Room was at a reduced rate and has always been very popular with our guests. I can only... More

Well what can I say, as usual I had an absolutely delightful stay. A new room for me this time, number 1. Another well decorated room, someone has good taste!

While there we enjoyed very good breakfast cooked fresh , a comfortable room which more than lived up to the.on line description I can honestly recommend this for a short stay and would happily stay there again...

I've just spent the weekend in Bowness to watch a friend swim Lake Windermere so booked purely on the cheapest place I could find, and came up with Monties.
