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

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

Fantastic break away from the kids. Met by a lovely garden and our host. We were shown to a nice, clean bedroom with a delightful four poster bed, that was comfy. A spotless bathroom with hot shower and clean towels. The cooked breakfast was also perfect, with as much juice, tea/coffee and toast as you wanted. No waiting around and... More

Stayed for 2 nights. We have been to the Lake District so many times and normally 'self cater', so was a nice change to stay in a hotel. Judith and her staff made us very welcome. Being right in the centre of Bowness there is access to shops and restaurants.

We enjoyed a lovely stay. Hotel was in a great location. The hostess, Judith couldn't be more helpful A lovely lady. The Breakfast has a great selection - everything was covered. Highly recommend this B & B. A relaxed place and a stone throw from the shops and lakes. We never moved the car from the minute we arrived to... More

Just had our second stay here, and it was just as lovely as the first time. The location is great, so close to the hub of bowness, but as soon as you step off the main road its bird song you hear, rather than the traffic. Room was clean and comfortable and Judith was welcoming and flexible with my dietary... More

My wife & I enjoyed our Wedding Anniversary in Bowness on Sunday. This was complimented by a lovely base to stay. Elim House was perfectly situated for a leisurely stroll to the village & all its eating & drinking. There is private parking to the rear, which is handy. The 4 poster bed was very comfortable, as was the room.... More
