My husband had booked this trip as a surprise for my birthday. At first glance when we arrived I thought it looked less than average, not something my husband would normally like to book. It certainly didn't look like the pictures on their website. The manager at reception gave us the keys to our room in the out building which... More

Booked this hotel through booking.com, pictures on the website looked fab, what a complete let down when we arrived... Not welcoming at all, no reception area just the owner sat on the couch with paperwork & utter mess... first impression was "where on earth have i booked" felt so disgusted... Onto the bedroom, up a flight of stairs (dirty carpet)... More

I had originally booked this hotel via Booking.com and when I booked the room it had deleted my request for a family room so therefore I needed to change my booking. I immediately rang the hotel and explained my dilemma. The man who answered said it wouldn't be a problem and I can have a triple room - which was... More

On Wednesday 6th August 2015 we decided to take a short break with our dog, boy was it difficult to find somewhere that would accommodate us. After numerous attempts we found The White House in Bowness, a ground floor room was offered which was good as my husband has mobility problems, 2 single beds had been put together to make... More

1 Star is 1 Star to many !!! Don't Book ... My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on our wedding anniversary and Basil Fawlty would be proud of this place. When booked we were told your room is in the main hotel but when we checked in the lady took us to building 100 yards from the... More

Well, where do I start, on arrival greeted by the manager of the hotel who I can only describe as a slob who permanently sat at a table within the restaurant area in front of an overflowing ashtray. He Informed us were to leave our car which was a nearby pay and display of £15 for 3 days. Room "superior"... More

My husband and I travelled to Bowness intending to stay just for the day. But the weather was beautiful so we decided to find a B&B. We spotted the White House and as I am disabled we were told we could stay in a ground floor room at the Churchill bar. The room had a filthy carpet and one of... More

Having purchased a one night stay through a Wowcher deal prior to reading any reviews on this hotel, I was pleasantly surprised with what we walked in to. I think it would be unfair to criticise heavily a place that is priced highly due to its location not its quality. The area surrounding is beautiful, walks to the lake and... More

We stayed in the annex building just next to main building of The White House which holds the more modern rooms. The rooms were made to look modern but were done with a low budget, cheap fitting and fixtures, plasterboard in various places in bedroom and bathroom needed an extra coat of paint, holes filled in with filler and not...
