Stayed here for 2 nights while traveling with husband & teenage son. The rooms were adequate but kind of worn. Sherry in room a nice touch. Bathrooms were tiny and I could hear water running not only in my unit but from floors above - keeping bathroom door shut diminished but did not eliminate noise. The shower so small that... More

Loved this place. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Our room was lovely with a view of lake Windermere. A wonderful idea was the small carafe of sherry and a dish of coffees as a welcome to your room. This hotel is also dog friendly which was/is a big plus for us. Would recommend.

Stayed for 2 nights. Good location, decent size room and lovely lake view. Breakfast was ok, nicely cooked, juice, cereal and plenty of offers to refresh drinks and toast. Parking is limited and a bit tight. Beds were clean and comfortable. Sadly the bathroom was awful. The wash basin was in the main bedroom which was ok but the shower... More

Don't expect to say Wow! And Don't go by puctures either. Reason I booked here were quite simple. First; it offered a fully cancelable deal on booking.com until 5 days before arrival. Second; one of the few places that had a ensuite family room for 4 on offer. Third; location. Fourth; good reviews. And fifth; great price. Add to the... More

We stayed here this weekend and it was excellent. We stopped last year and, on the strength of that stay, booked again for this year. The Hotel is pretty much ideally located for a large part of the Lakes and is in a good, central spot between Bowness and Windermere. Our room was immaculately presented every day and we have...

We stayed for one night only as we were moving on. We were expecting a luxury room and we got a room with a double bed and a single bed. The skirting boards and walls were filthy. The en suiite was basic but rust on radiator and still toothpaste marks under mirror not very spritely. Bed was clean and comfortable.... More

Excellent location just around the corner from Beatrix Potter World. Clean with well presented rooms. Nice hot shower. Could do with slightly bigger TVs. Very friendly staff. Nice breakfast and good value for money overall. Road outside a little noisy during the day but once the sun goes down peace returns.

Very good location, just a few minutes walk from the lake, we found the staff very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was nice, with a good selection and fresh juices although the service hours are a little short 08:30-0930. The room we had was a bit overwhelmed by the four poster bed within, which also had a few large screws sticking... More

Very reasonable and well located B&B with parking. Great family room with wonderful view of the lake. Comfortable beds and pleasant lounge. Nice breakfast and staff were friendly and helpful. Good value at £114 for our room and highly recommended.
