Third time here and just like the other times our stay was perfect. Lovely rooms, friendly owners prime location and great value. Breakfast is fantastic and consists of high quality produce. Only drawback is the car parking on site is a little bit small and must be a bit awkward if you have a large car. However I can't see... More

Great place to stay. We had a room at the back of the property so it was pretty quiet. The bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Sue, our host was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really good. Nothing to complain about because breakfast caters for every taste. A small car park on site which was a bit tricky getting... More

Stayed here midweek recently. Really enjoyed it. Great location, only a short walk from the main area of Bowness. Room was more than adequate, shower room was a handy add on for the room. An ideal place for a short stay and breakfast was great too

Stayed at the weekend - superb location, comfortable room, comfortable bed, good shower room, high standard of cleanliness, lovely breakfast (wonderful fruit salad!), even managed to park on the small car park which was a bit tight but there is extra parking quite close by. Given the age of the building the rooms are not large, as one would expect,... More

Very interesting Tudor hotel with excellent restaurant and bar. Food good value and was excellent. Four poster bed a nice touch. Superb garden and just a short walk from the beautiful Symonds yat. We shall definitely be returning.

The Old Courthouse is in a great location if you want to be by the centre of the town (mind the hill!). Friendly welcome, comfy rooms and a great breakfast. It is an old building so the rooms are a little smaller that you would expect in a modern hotel, but that adds to the character. For the location it... More

Excellent location! Just 5 min walk to the lake with plenty of good restaurants and lovely unique shops as well as your typical outdoor attire shops. Small, slightly old fashioned rooms but clean, warm and tidy. As is bathroom. Double bed quite small. Breakfast is very nice. Toast, cereal, juice tea and coffee. Cooked breakfast made to order and is... More

Stayed 2 nights mid July and found it to be an excellent location for everything - restaurants, pubs, sightseeing. Parking is limited but we were lucky. Bed is only a double and ensuite quite small but perfectly adequate. Narrow stairs so recommend not taking in large suitcases. Good breakfast.

I booked up on 01/07/2014 for two nights starting 08/08/2014 through Laterooms.com. The stay was to celebrate my partners birthday in the Lake District. Within a couple of days of my booking I received an email from a lady at The Old Courthouse named Alison, who was requesting my approximate arrival time on 08/08/2014. I confirmed this as 1pm. I...
