Once again we enjoyed our recent visit to Holmlea Guest House. It is ideally situated close to all amenities in Bowness on Windermere. It means that upon arrival you can for get your car as it is only a short to walk into town to catch either the local buses or cruises. Also quite a number of good restaurants are... More

Just returned from a 2 nights stay at Holmlea. We stayed in Room 7, which is at the back of the house. The room was nice and cosy, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Hosts were really friendly, excellent breakfast with loads of choices. Close to the town centre and the lake. Would definitely stay again and recommended this guest house.

We have just returned from 4 night stay at Holmlea Guest House. This is the best place we have stayed at in the lakes. Close to town centre. The rooms are beautiful, beds are so comfortable, the breakfast is superb and very friendly service. Can't imagine staying anywhere else now we have found this.

Very friendly people, spotlessly clean house and comfortable room. Breakfast was excellent. I had the continental which consisted of fruit juice, cereal, toast, yogurt, banana and coffee or tea. My husband had the full English which was beautifully presented and excellently cooked. This was my second visit and I would definitely stay again and recommend this B&B.

Everything was to our satisfaction (especially breakfast, cleanliness, friendly hosts). We were, however, rather puzzled about the towel-changing policy of the guest house. This was not our first visit to Holmlea and it won't be our last.

Great location (easy walk to lake, town and local pubs), clean and homely as the name suggests. lack of water pressure and hot water meant showers were not very enjoyable, and the cooked breakfasts were not so great.

Thank you for your comments, all feedback is welcome and taken seriously. We were not advised of any problems with the water during your stay. If issues had been brought to our attention while you were here then they could have been sorted. We have a varied breakfast menu so other options could have been chosen if our full english... More

The Holmlea guest house is fantastic value for money. The room was very clean and well equipped. The location is good too just a short walk from the town. This was our first time to the Lakes and would definately return to the Holmlea without hesitation.
