We booked a few nights away as a treat for my husbands birthday. The rooms are very well looked after and spacious and its conveniently positioned for local amenities. Vicky and the team are so friendly which made us feel very much at home. A complete gem of a place! We are looking forward to stopping again in the autumn.... More

Once again our stay was perfect and we loved every minute of it again. The breakfast is lovely, just about right with fruit, cheeses, cereals and salaries... More

Had a fantastic weekend stay here for our anniversary.....loved everything about the room. Upstairs rooms are much better and more private than the ground floor rooms. Had a great time and will definitely be back.

This hotel has great suites. We stayed in the Cat Bells suite and the view is excellent. The location is perfect for Bowness. Parking is near by at the Belsfield hotel. Get there early on day of check in to get a space. Breakfast is a simple continental style that served in room and makes a change from the norm.... More

I am very sorry that you did not feel you received very good service while you stayed with us. We work very hard to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable so we are more than a little upset that you did not feel we delivered. Regarding the towels, in the interest of the environment we only replace towels if... More

This was our second stay at the Bowness Bay Suites and it didn't disappoint! The staff are warm, welcoming and happy to help with any queries. We stayed in the Buttermere suite, as we did on our first stay in 2014, and we loved it just as much as we did then. Beautiful suite, really luxurious and cosy. We absolutely... More

A warm welcome to a fabulous establishment with a great location in the heart of Bowness. Super comfortable and top notch suites with everything you could wish for. Breakfast served in your suite (at a very civilised 9.30am) to enjoy in your PJ's if you wish, as you enjoy the view to the lake. Amazing Breakfast :-) :-) So central... More

Not many paces actually match the photo's displayed , but this place does, a very nice suite with seating area and 32" tv with views ove the lake, and an ideal central position, just 100 yards to main shops of Bowness and not much further to the lake itself.
