The best part of our stay was our departure. The room in the annex (pub next door) was reasonable but not serviced at all.Despite our arriving an hour late for check in we were informed by the wine slurping old man in reception (sitting next to his full ash tray) that our room was not ready and to come back...

Tempted by a good price for a first stopover in Bowness, we booked a two night stay starting on a Wednesday and leaving the following Friday. On arrival on Wednesday, the owner told us that he’d expected us the day before and had unsuccessfully tried to contact the company we’d made the booking through to find out why we hadn’t... More

A friend booked 3 of us in for a "pre wedding" trip away. On the morning, the owner phoned to say that the room had been double booked. Although they managed to sort out a room for 2 of us, the third person had to stay in the Stags Head round the corner. We ended up in the annexe at... More

An amazingly well located hotel in the heart of Bowness on Windermere. A friendly welcome by the owner, and a free upgrade - we were given a room in the annex building with a view of the lake. Our room, (6) and ensuite were both very clean, a good size and extremely quiet. Breakfast (which was conveniently served between 9... More

We booked a 4 night stay at this hotel before checking the reviews on Tripadvisor. When we did get around to reading the reviews we were dismayed and were not at all looking forward to our break. What a surprise though. We arrived late and had to pick up the keys from the pub next door as agreed in a... More

We visited this place early September for a birthday treat. It looked great on the photos but as soon as you arrive it's like what have we done. We were also questioned as soon as we walked through the door and despite giving an estimated arrival time the owner had phoned me two hours previously - I was driving so... More

I don't like to write bad reviews but this place really needs to be turned around. On arriving it was deserted except for the manager sitting in his overcoat in the lounge. My room was fairly small and in need of tlc. Carpet was worn, grouting in the bathroom was stained etc. The bedside lamps didn't work even when they... More
