Stayed here only for one night, we booked it due to the price and the free parking. Lovely little room right at the top of the house with a nice hot shower. Couple of things to note.... When we arrived there were work men laying some concrete in the small car park so we were unable to park. But as... More

What a complete idiot we have here – yes we did have wok men working in the car park who asked you to wait before parking so not to get mud or concrete on your car and yes you may have been parking for a only a few minutes to collect the keys but you do not park on someone... More

We arrived for our 2 nights stay, owners were very friendly and polite, we were happy with the location to Windermere, free parking off road, beds comfy and room very clean, cooked breakfast lovely but quite small, ensuite bathroom seemed to be a bit of a cheap add in, shower not very powerful, windows in room did not stay open...

Lovely stay. Karen was very welcoming and helpful. Lovely room with view over the lovely garden. The lovely breakfast was a great. The location was ideal, with the bonus of car parking, not easy in Bowness. A short walk to the centre of town, restaurants, bars, etc. Can certainly recommend this hotel to everyone.

We stayed at Elim Lodge at the end of our Dales Way walk. Owner Karen was pleasant and helpful. Our £80 ensuite room was large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice. Elim Lodge has the feel of a traditional, no-nonsense guest house and, as such, was fine for our purposes.

This was my first visit to England and my first to the Lake District. Stayed at elim lodge in bowness for the night before moving on up into Scotland. Nice room and a good breakfast, it was nice and peaceful and we had a good nights sleep. Only problem was that the wifi kept going off.

For me this b&b was distinguished mainly by the unfriendliness of the landlady.She made me feel like an unwelcome guest in her house. She has rules and is brusque to the point of rudeness if you transgress. But my room was fine; large and tidy while the ensuite was not so good. Breakfast is pretty meagre compared to other places...

This person’s review is based on my reply to the post below as it is his friend. I am now waiting for his wife to write one as this is now becoming a personal attack on my business. You did not travel as a solo person but as a group of 3 people. I would like to know what rules... More

I booked this for the three of us for our final night after walking the delightful Dales Way. This was our worst B&B en route. The couple who run the place are clearly tired of what they are doing. They were unhelpful and unfriendly - not a single smile! The accommodation Room 6 was small and tacky - peace and... More
