We were a mixed group of 13 and could have been quite hard work (am sure we were!) for the very friendly team running Laurel Cottage. No request was too much trouble, the breakfast was good and the rooms clean, with plenty of space. They were happy to accommodate a buggy and all the other baggage that goes with a... More

Superb location. Right in the middle of everything. A bit overpriced for size of rooms and also poor views of maintenance work.But still delightful. Weather was great too which was an extra bonus. Breakfast great!! maybe veggie sausages would be a good idea? :)

The hotel may have small areas of tiredness which are easily overlooked when you are in the company and care of the owners. Nothing was too much trouble and the idea of an old grumpy guesthouse landlady of the past was nowhere near the truth. What a lovely couple who made you feel you had choice about the type of...

This is a great little B And B located in the centre of Bowness. Steve and Jodie, the owners, made us very welcome and shared a great deal of their local knowledge with us. Limited parking is available on site, we had no problem with this. The breakfast is superb. A couple of criticisms we had was there is a... More

Well located, near a bus stop 599 and across the road from Tescos. Room - bathroom is very very small. No mixer taps for basin and shower pressure very poor. Almost impossible to turn the gauge on. Only 1 soap given for 2 people for 4 night stay. Room nicely decorated and spacious, especially for London. Good to have kettle... More

Having read fairly positive reviews about this place we were disappointed with our room. Room 9 needs a good overhaul and it could only be helped by moving out the completely useless large leather chair and dressing table which just gets in the way. The curtains and the bathroom interior have seen better days some time ago and the promise... More

We stayed at this B&B as a party of 8 adults and 2 children. The owners were very accommodating to our party by grouping our rooms together and allowing us the use of the breakfast room during the evenings. The rooms are surprisingly large and decorated to a good standard. Our only criticism of the room was that the curtains... More

Just had a couple of nights at the Laurel Cottage. The B&B is in a great location, very central with shops and lakeside amenities in close proximity. The downside to this is that it can get very noisy at night because of the bars and restaurants around the corner and across the road. On the two nights that we stayed,... More
