Great breakfast, fresh fruit, cereal etc, really tasty homemade yogurt, before your choice of breakfast. Very friendly owners, clean & cosy room with lots of tea & coffee, very comfy beds - had a great nights sleep. Near to town for pubs & eating out, will be back :)

I can't think of one single thing negative about the property and the owners. It was charming and spotless. All amenities were provided.The breakfasts were delicious. Ian was very helpful in his suggestions on excursions and dining. We had a car, but didn't need it when exploring the town. Bowness is perfectly situated to explore the entire area.

Stayed from 3rd July to 5 July 2015, room 6. Owners very welcoming and even the day staff very friendly, on arriving we were offered free tea and cake and advised the best local places to eat. The food in the morning was wonderful anything you wanted you could have. I would definitely recommend this place and book again.

Would happily stay here again! Lovely owners helped us find some great places to eat as it was our first time in the area. Delicious breakfast and even some chocolate hearts in the bedroom as it was valentines! Would recommend to anyone.

Perfect for our 2 night break, friendly hosts, beautiful tasty breakfasts, spotlessly clean and brilliant location. Rooms are spacious and contain a small fridge, which is a nice idea. You need look no further, thoroughly recommend this hotel.
