We were really surprised by the automatic upgrade. We were pleased with other facilities: parking, pool, etc. Landlord was always available and was very helpful. We will stay in the same place next time.

Lovely welcome and a very comfortable room. Breakfast was fantastic but slightly spoiled by allowing guests dogs into breakfast room .However this did not spoil our overall stay. We experienced a very warm welcome from Graham. He gave us a detailed explanation of where all the good sights were and the car park is very near.

My wife and I were there just 2 weeks ago, and we LOVED our stay. We were shown in by Graeme, who is super friendly and was so helpful. The room was immaculately clean with excellent cookies and biscuits baked by Shirley, waiting for us on the table. The bathroom was 10/10 and the location is very good too. Breakfast... More

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this Cottage. I rang Graham and he did me a good deal on the superior room. The photos actually don't do the rooms justice, really enjoyed the four poster bed, the spa was nice (it's only a 1 or squeezy 2 person one) but more than comfortable. The hotel is very centrally located and... More

Situated right in the centre of Bowness with everything you'd need a couple of minutes walk away, this was the ideal location. Add to that a fantastic old house, great rooms and superb service and you have a recipe for 10 out of 10 in m book!! Great place to stay, loved it! :)
