After reading the reviews we were pretty worried about what we had already booked and paid for! We arrived at 7.35 were given keys and shown to our room...... Room number 6 this was key to what you experienced here as the other rooms did not seem as impressive?! we were pleasantly impressed by the room, granted a lick of... More

Stayed here last weekend, the staff were amazing, maxine was lovely and really looked after us all. They could not do enough to help us. The rooms were clean and the food was gorgeous. Location was great, just around the corner from the lake. All in all we had a great time and couldn't fault the place.

We stayed here the last few days. I absolutely love the Lake District but this time we just couldn't wait to come home. We got this as a Wowcher deal and we paid £99 for it. For the room alone I would not pay £9 for, enough room for a double bed and a chair and that's it. Blind was... More

We stayed here for New Year this hotel is in a excellent location for Bowness even though you can't see the Lake.Room 5 had a superb bathroom-(a fantastic wetroom)as well as being fairly spacious, however the service was shambolic!! Poor Sebastien was left alone to serve breakfast for 14 rooms, which had to be split into 2 sittings, an almost... More

we stayed at this hotel after our children purchased a voucher for our Christmas present. To be honest we would not have picked the hotel due to previous bad reviews we had viewed. On arrival we were met by Sebastian who is quite frankly the only good point I can mention other than its great location. We were initially given... More

Me and my husband went to Bowness-on-Windermere for winter holidays. Once we got there, we had to pick up the keys at the pub nearby as we came too early. We appreciated that we could check in earlier. The guy at the pub was very helpful. In the morning we had a lovely breakfast in the hotel. Our room, though... More

On the plus side the location right in the centre of Bowness is brilliant. The hotel has no private parking but is only a couple of hundred yards from the big Ray Rigg carpark charging £15 for 3 nights which we didn't feel was unreasonable. Our Room (6) was perfectly adequate and the bed comfortable. However beware of the very... More

Our room was ok, clean enough although the bathroom somewhat tired. Sebastian had clearly been left to cope on his own, and largely did cope, but he clearly didn't know where things were such as a corkscrew. We were staying out of season, so not much trade in the restaurant. What they served was reasonable, but not fantastic. The location... More
