We arrived at the Bowness Bay Suites a few hours prior to checkin time but on arrival the friendly owner said she'd make sure our room was ready first and to return at 1 oclock, which was great for us. We stayed in the Buttermere Suite which is located on the middle floor and has a view of the lake... More

My boyfriend and I booked a last minute 2 night get away for our anniversary and had a great time (as we always do in The Lake District) but it was made even better by the amazing accommodation and lovely customer service. We booked through booking.com and added to our comments that we would really appreciate a lake view room,... More

I will be honest and say I never write reviews on Trip Advisor, but feel I must inform anyone thinking about staying at the Bowness Bay Suits, of the appalling way I was treated by the owners, in the hope that no one else suffers the same. We didn't actually end up staying at the suites (through no fault of... More

Spent our mini-moon here and this lovely B&B really made our short stay extra special. The owner was very friendly, welcoming and attentive. The suite itself was very clean and decorated to a high standard, and with the stunning views we have promised ourselves an annual return for our anniversaries.

Just returned from these suites and thought they were beautiful. Immaculate with lovely decor finishing touches. Very spacious suites with a fantastic view, we were with friends and we had the top two suites, catbells and hiiltop. Breakfast was delivered at 9.30 to your door which was continental style, fresh and adequate amount. The staff were very nice and I... More

A great two day break to the Lakes and staying at the Bowness Bay Suites just topped it off! Lovely big room and VERY comfortable bed! Thoroughly impressed with the room from the minute we walked in, and a view out to Lake Windermere. Spotless bathroom. Continental breakfast served in your room at half 9, perfect! Could not fault the... More

Wonderful 3 night break . Central location. The outward appearance of the building belies the hidden gem inside. Double aspect spacious rooms with high standard of furnishings. Breakfast is served in your room , sitting at your juliette balcony with views over Lake Windermere. Will certainly recommend to friends and family.

I surprised my partner with a last minute trip to the Lakes for a few days and Bowness Bay Suites stood out from the moment I found it online. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner who showed us to our room. We were located on the top floor which meant some stairs but they were not too onerous... More
