“Bacon and Eggs is just the beginning.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2010

There's only so much one can write in this short space about how good our stay at the Hilton Hotel was.We stayed there for five beautiful days in April and couldn't have asked for more. The hotel is extremely clean and you are greeted by the superb Martin who is a great host. We were awoken every morning with the smell of bacon and eggs, the perfect way to start any day walking in the lakes, Martin would spend some time every morning giving us some tips of where to go and always asking if there was anything we needed, always willing to help us have the best time we could.

Once again thanks again for a great holiday! We will be seeing you very soon!!

I had never been to the Lakes before and chose the Hilton House after the beautiful pictures on the website. I was not disappointed upon my arrival. The beautiful rooms and fantastic staff made for a great trip.

I have been to many hotels across England but never have I been so impressed by the local knowledge and helpfulness of the staff to ensure I had a great trip.

The added bonus of the use of the local leisure centre was also a bonus.
I cannot recommend the Hilton House enough!

This hotel is marked as a 4* but I would give it a 5* as it is beautiful and in a beautiful location. We were greeted by the very friendly Jenny who made us feel instantly welcome and at home. Our room (number 4) was lovely and finished to a high standard like the rest of the guest house. It was quite compact so it may be a bit small for other guests, but we didnt have a problem with it. The bed was lovely and very comfortable. Our only gripe and it was a very small one, is the the shower could be a bit more powerful, but we only stayed for 2 nights. The room where breakfast is served is so stunning and if you get the window seat your very lucky, as it's lovely. Breakfast I thought was just enough. You get a choice of yoghurts, cereal, then toast, and a choice of full english or crossoints, etc. It was all cooked to perfection and didnt take long to come out. The location of the guest house is very good; about 5 mins walk to Windermere which is quite and 15 mins to Bowness which has much more going on and lots of places to eat. We ate at The Village Inn and Seymours, both of which were really nice and under £10 each. At Bowness we took a 45 min boat trip across the lake which is well worth the £6.45 for an adult. All-in-all this was an amazing break for us and we would definately go back - Thank you Jenny and Martin.

Stayed here before and the B&B has been spruced up since. Owners can't do enough for you, very welcoming. Last time we stayed in the larger rooms with 4 poster bed which was lovely, this time we picked a double (room 7) which was compact but clean with TV, tea & coffee facilities and room with shower, sink & WC (we are not too bothered about space as most of the time we are out but some may find this room a little too cramped). Breakfasts are to die for! Will be staying there again without hesitation. Location wise you are situated about 5 minute walk from Windermere and about 15 minutes from Bowness on Winderemere. Most of shops are found in Bowness and you can get cruises along lake Windermere from here. There are plenty of restaurants to suit any taste in Bowness. Nearly forgot B&B offer reduced rates for a nearby gym & spa - not tried it but it is avilable for those who wish to do so at £7 a go.

We enjoyed our stay so much in the lakes we decided to stay an extra night, it's been gorgeous weather and everywhere seemed to be pretty full but we called at Hilton House on the off chance they may have a room and they had 2 available. We were stunned to find out it was only £70 for a 4 poster room for the night including brekfast, which was cheaper than the other B&B we'd just come from and the Hilton was much much nicer. We were welcomed by the owner, she was lovely and we were made to feel right at home. The room and bathroom was very clean and decorated beautifully. Breakfast was lovely and oth towns just a short 5/10 minuet walk from the B&B. My partner & myself would deffinately recommend staying here and we will deffinately be going back for a longer stay.
