We stayed 3 nights in a room with fantastic view. Room was spacious, location near train station and generous servings of breakfast. Our hosts Anita and Denis are very friendly and always ensure that we get the best comfort in their guesthouse. Will definitely return here if we visit Windermere again.

First it should be said that the cookies and cakes alone are worth staying there for! Furthermore, the cleanliness of the rooms, breakfast area and bathrooms, the quality of the breakfast, the location and the reasonable price all make this a top notch B&B that I would love to stay at again. More than anything however, the owners Anita, Dennis... More

Hello Bhavraj, We really appreciate your positive review about us and likewise we enjoyed having you around for 2 days. What a pity that the weather was not cooperating for your first day and you could not cycle as much as you had planned. As you told us it was a relaxing stay for you and you enjoyed the outdoors....

My wife and I visited the Archway Guest recently. The owner's of this bed and breakfast made it feel like home from home. You couldn't find a better place to stay in the Lake District .
