Upon checking In the room hadn't been cleaned, the shower head support was broken, it was very hot, carpet filthy, bed unstable and rickety, poor decor, and to top it off when I turned a pillow over the case was covered in what seemed to look like blood and...

Stayed here for 2 nights in July! You can't get a much better location and hotel for the price in Bowness! Brilliant breakfast I particularly liked the option to choose from a variety of breakfasts (even though we always went for the Lakeland grill). The service was fabulous as the waitress kept brining us toast and were very friendly. The... More

We ate here due to it's brilliant location and spacious beer garden. The food was excellent as was the service. Looks to be updated inside since our last visit ten years ago, although back then there were adequate toilet facilities that you had to go upstairs for. We searched for them this time but they aren't upstairs anymore, the only... More

Didn't stay here. Had a lunch one afternoon. Had two baguettes both were very nice. Also from the little I saw of inside while ordering it looked like it had been recently refurbished. Staff were very polite

Stayed here with my family as a last minute decision and have mixed feelings about the place. Before I start with any negatives, I just want to comment on the staff. You pretty much won't find better staff or service anywhere which should be noted if this is what is important to you. Location wise you would struggle to find... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here New Year's Eve with our friends. When arriving the location was fantastic, directly in the centre of Bowness and a car park just around the corner (as the hotel has no parking facilities so we did have to pay) We was upgraded to the annex which was nice, very clean and modern bathrooms. We... More

The person dealing with the enquiry (John) informed us we would be in the newer part of the hotel in room 6 with a Lake view. Upon arrival we parked outside the narrow street which had doubled yellow lines and asked the guy... More
