Stayed for 2 nights in April. Looks a little tired from the outside. Downstairs, the decor is pleasant. The room was ok but ensuite needed some attention. Nowhere to hang the towels and shower curtain held up by string; extractor fan didn't work. The toilet seat needed replacing and the glass shelf sloped so was useless. Wi fi exists but... More

Stayed on a groupon deal and upgraded to the annexe room. Was a bit worried as our rooom faced a nightclub but we didn't get distrurbed (and we stayed at the weekend) so all was good. Our room was fine, no complaints. My Mum had a room in the main building which was very small and a bit dated so... More

we booked the wowcher offer at this hotel which was two nights including breakfast and an evening meal on one of the nights. The photos of the rooms and the dining room seemed fine and the hotel was in the middle of Bowness which we thought very convenient. Parking £15 just up the road for the three days. We asked... More

Stayed here for two nights, room basic, but clean, clean fluffy towels, had a big wet room bathroom. We had this on a wowcher deal, had a three course meal thrown in as well, the dinner in the evening was really good. The main course was more than ample, if you got a good appetite it's well worth a visit.... More

We stayed at the White House for a 2 night stay last week from a voucher deal. John and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. John is very knowledgeable about the area and was able to suggest places we may like to visit. We had a room in the annex which was spacious and had a double aspect, so... More

Bought voucher for 2 nights b&b + 1 evening meal. Had no trouble booking a midweek stay (only ones in on first night). Found we had been put in annexe and that there was a £20 a night surcharge. Realised this when heard manager telling other voucher enquirers on the phone that the annexe rooms were 'superior' to the basic... More
