Just a very short 3 min walk from the bus stop. The guest house is smart and welcoming, the service is friendly and the twin room (stayed... More

2 night mid-week stay in the Lakes at Holmlea Guest House. Weather on arrival was very stormy but a warm welcome awaited at Holmlea. From attractive web site, ease of booking, confirmation and informative emails every thing was easy and friendly. The attractive twin room was spotlessly clean with everything you might need provided. The modern ensuite shower room again... More

My experience at Homlea Guest House at Bowness echoes the common theme of the reviews: excellent location, immaculate rooms-clean and comfortable and most of all the welcoming, friendly, helpful but not intrusive host Gill who I really thank for making our stay most pleasant. I would highly recommend this little B&B gem- the location is absolutely perfect with 2 min... More

Had a lovely relaxing break in Bowness. Gill was friendly and helpful, always available without being intrusive. Our bedroom wasn't huge but there was plenty of space for the 2 of us and loads of storage. Selection of tea/coffee/chocolate which was replenished daily. The room was spotless, the bed was really comfy with lovely white bedlinen. The shower wasn't very... More

Just returned from New Year break here. The owner greeted us at the door and as our party consisted of three couples she confirmed our rooms were on the same floor. The rooms were warm and very comfortable, we personally had room 2 which had a smaller bathroom than our friends, but this was not a problem. As other reviewers... More
