Stayed for one night (28th July) with my wife. Had room 6 (photos attached), shoddy room, very small toilet / shower room. Wall paper old and peeling, not worth the £77. Be aware parking is very tight, six cars in a tight drive. The hotel is on a busy road, at a junction so not so easy to access.barely any... More

We stayed with family for one night before our daughter's wedding. A warm welcome and we were made to feel at home. Good, clean rooms, great service and an excellent breakfast. What more could you ask for?

A very relaxing weekend. Lovely comfortable room, brilliant breakfast. Well worth the money. Very friendly and very knowledgeable about the area so talking to them about what we liked and taking their advice we had some lovely days out. Will go again without a doubt.

We stayed in the B&B for 3 nights early August. We had the family room which was cosy, clean, and had a lovely view out the front of the building. The owners Karen and Andy were superb hosts, and were very welcoming to all 4 of us (including our little puppy)! Nothing was too much for them, and they made... More

This is a beautiful little b&b and has all you need for that short relaxing break. Owners very friendly, rooms comfortable and with ensuite, breakfast to start off your day. Located just 9 minutes walk from Bowness Centre and lake which allows for peace and quiet when desired. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay.

We certainly were given the worst room in the house - or at least I hope so, but that's all I can talk about and it was just not worth the 75 pounds per night or 70 pounds respectively that were charged when booking over the phone. The room was under the gable and therefore quite small but the bathroom... More

We stayed in the guest house for two nights, and we expected something totally different for the price we had paid. The room's decor was pretty tired, the bathroom's sliding door was not closing properly, and the bathroom was so tiny that you could hardly turn around in it. Furthermore, the shower corners were moldy.. Although the room supposed to... More

Both the other half and I stayed here as a brief mid week excursion whilst taking part in a classic car tour of the lakes and surrounding area, picked the accommodation purely on the name alone, "Brooklands" fitting into our motoring theme perfectly. The room was lovely, clean and with a pleasant view, great off road parking for my precious... More

I've stayed in a lot of guest houses in and around Bowness and Windermere recently, and this one is by far my favourite, and the only one I will recommend to my own friends. It doesn't have the brand new, white, shiny, clinical rooms of other guest houses, so if that is what you are looking for, this isn't the... More
