Booked via an online booking medium and received a very friendly and informative e-mail from the proprietor the following day. We were greeted warmly, shown to our room, everything we needed to know was either explained or was supplied in information within the room. The room was comfortable and clean, the general cleanliness of the b & b was excellent.... More

My daughter and I stayed at this guest for four days in late September 2014. On booking, which was through an intermediating online booking company, I was immediately impressed by the caring attitude of our hosts Graeme and Shirley who also posted an email of confirmation. They also attached travelling and stay details which made it easier for us to... More

Our half panelled room with 4 poster bed was superb. We had an excellent view of the nearby town centre and enjoyed watching the daily buzz of people and traffic as we relaxed with a glass of wine. The staff made us very welcome and breakfast was an ideal start to the day. Local amenities are easily reached and parking... More

We stayed in room 10, the room and hotel was clean, great breakfast, welcoming staff, I have no hesitation in recommending you stay here as it is value for money, I advise you to book direct and save £10 per night booking fee and you also can discuss what room you would like etc, parking was just a minute away,...

Lovely room, lovely spa bath after a day's fell walking & lovely home made biscuits. Liked the fridge in the room - if only to keep water bottles for the next day's fell walking!!! Great breakfast. Made to feel welcome. Great location at heart of Bowness so provides all local amenities and gateway to exploring the rest of the Lakes.... More

We stayed for three nights and chose it due to being dog friendly and central. We found the communication before arriving from Graeme was excellent as was our stay. Our Dog friendly room on the ground floor was spacious and spotless. Breakfast set us up for the day and was delicious. Location is central so close to everything. Having a... More

We chose to stay at Virginia Cottage due to its location, price and the photos that were shown on the website. Upon arrival, we were given a car parking ticket to allow us free parking during our stay at a local hotel around 50m up the road. We also took advantage of been able to use the spa facilities at...

Visited Windermere for 1 night and booked last minute. Found Virginia Cottage to be reasonable and well thought of online. We were not disappointed with the service provided and pleasantly surprised by the amount of care and effort put our way on a Monday. V impressed and would recommend, very central to everything (lake, bike/boat hire, crazy golf, local ice... More
