The most unhelpful hotel management I have ever come across. Having made a booking at 8pm by mistake for the same day, the hotel flatly refused to waive the booking in favour of a booking at a later date. Quite obviously we were not going to arrive on that day but they really couldn't care less. They have the money... More

I hardly ever write reviews, however I do feel that this time it is needed. Once we arrived at Elim House we couldn't find parking (not the easiest of places to find the car park if you don't know where you are). We arrived and checked in, we was shown to out room by an elderly lady, good sence of... More

This place was very close to the centre of town, but far enough out to be away from any noise. Coming through the charming garden, we were met at the door and shown up to our room on the top floor (quite a climb!). The decor was brown and beige - not an ideal combination for me, but we stayed... More

Elim House provided an ideal place to stay for a short break in the Lakes. A clean and comfortable room, together with a very good breakfast gave very excellent value for money. Judith was a welcoming and helpful hostess and I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Wonderfull B&B only a 5 minute walk to the lake. (town centre). Judith is a perfect hostess, she gave a lot of time and energie to give us a great 4 day's stay in Bowness-on-Windermere. Breakfast is also perfect, a lot to choose from. The rooms are clean and there is space enough to move arround. Thank's Judith, Greetings from... More

By rights, I cannot rate the hotel, as I did not stay there, but I can rate the hospitality, which was dismal. Made me almost lose my faith in human nature. The only reason I am writing this is to prevent others from having to go through our harrowing experience on our first visit to this quaint little town. My... More

I feel that I should put my side of the story so that potential guests can have an unbiased opinion of what to expect during their stay here. Firstly, as it states on my website, I do not take late check-ins. Secondly, I had no contact details for these guests to explain this to them as they had booked through... More

Once again we had a fantastic stay with Judith at Elim House. she always makes us feel welcome. It is a comfortable cosy B&B which I would have no trouble in recomending to anyone. Breakfast is a treat, lovely, filling and sets you up for a long day of hill walking. Hope to visit again soon.

Stayed for 2 nights. I will start by admitting we were spoken to about noise!! After arriving back early hours on the 1st night, we woke the guests in the next room. We are sorry about that, as it was inconsiderate of us, but by no means deliberate! The guests knocked on our wall, made us aware and we quietened... More
