I must say, having read all the negative reviews about this hotel, I was expecting something awful. Our 2 days were paid for on a voucher deal too. We found the hotel quaint - the room, bed linen, bathroom were all clean. The bed was very comfortable. Our room overlooked the courtyard - and there wasn't a sound coming from... More

I have just returned after 2 nights booked at the Whitehouse Bowness. We were placed in a room at the annex which is actually attached to the Churchill pub next door. Access is via a filthy terrace -cigarette butts strewn about! The room was on the top floor pigeons were in the roof space all night keeping us awake -... More

Like a lot of reviewers we stayed using a Wowcher voucher given to us as a present. I was also confused at the photographs of the Spa as there is definately not one in the hotel. It may be that it is in a nearby hotel, but this is not made clear on the website!! We were given a room... More

Full disclosure up front – I stayed here using a voucher deal (2 nights for £99). With that in mind, you can’t really complain too vehemently about a place if you’ve only paid £50 a night. You get what you pay for at the end of the day. The hotel is in a fantastic location, only a stones throw from... More

Stayed at the White House two weeks ago. I booked the weekend through Wowcher, I thought they checked out hotels before they where put on their site!! The pictures of the hotel are nothing like the actual pictures. I emailed the hotel before I came and asked if they were dog friendly.... On arrival we where meet by a rude... More

Stayed there for two nights through Wowcher. Having read previous customers reviews asked when booking to be placed in one of the annex rooms if possible. This was confirmed by e mail and we were pleased to be allocated an annex room. Upon arrival the premises from the outside looked tired and not well maintained, Entered to be met by... More

We booked this hotel through booking.com and pre paid weeks before we were due to travel. Only upon receiving the confirmation email we were told it was a non refundable price. The photos on the website looked lovey and the write up made it sound the perfect spot in Windermere! DO NOT BE FOOLED! The property DOES NOT look anything... More

We stayed two nights and really enjoyed our stay. Our host John really look after us and filled us with all the information that we needed to get around the lake district and even called a cab company to get prices for us, (without us even asking!! ) so we had all information at hand! Only thing I would say... More

Enjoyed a one night stay, we have a good sized room, ideal for a family of up to 4, the hotel location offers very easy and close access to the lake and Bowness centre. Would recommend avoiding The New China Boat Chinese restaurant, which is close by, the service was appalling and some of our courses were omitted,

My husband and I were booked in for 2nights on a wowcher deal but only stayed one night as we booked into the Old England on the second night for my husband's birthday as a surprise. The downstairs is fine but sadly the upstairs is badly needing work done. The carpets on the stairs and our room were very dirty... More
