This is a standard UK B&B. Its clean, reasonable priced, the breakfast is ok, and the furntiure generally a bit outdated, but fine. The main problem of our room was the mattress. It was obviously very old and completely worn out, one could feel a lot of springs. My partner and me had both back pain every morning. The bathroom... More

We stayed here from Friday to Sunday and found everything very acceptable. The room was very well presented, clean and styled. The breakfast was one of the best I've had anywhere and the staff we encountered were very friendly and attended all our needs. We will definately be staying here again.

Have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at Elim House. The owners were so friendly and attentive and made us feel really welcome from the moment we got there. The breakfast was lovely - you chose what you wanted from the menu the night before so it saved a lot of hassle in the morning. The only slight negative,... More

The Owners (and trainee owners) were all very friendly and helpful (even tumble drying my 'very wet coat') The stay we had was made so much better by the friendly team who ran the B&B. We as a party of 4 would recomend the Guest House as being very central, having a place to park the car, clean and tidy... More

Lovely B&B. Stayed for a weekend earlier this year. Very convenient location for both Windermere and Bowness on Windermere, both in walking distance from the B&B. Guest parking available. Lovely large breakfast, with a number of options available. Friendly staff. The only improvements for me would be updating the decor, maybe removing one of the tables from the dining room... More
