Stayed for two nights. This is a lovely hotel with a nice ambience. We arrived early and parked the car and walked into Bowness. When we returned our room was ready and Andre showed us round and took us to our room (7). It was large and comfortable with a good hospitality tray. Spotlessly clean. There is a comfy lounge...

We stayed in the 'Cottage' of Westbourne for 2 nights and really enjoyed the nice room provided. It was clear and well decorated. The staff was friendly and provided warm travelling advice. The breakfasts were great too. I would highly recommend Westbourne to travellers.

We stayed only one night and wish it could have been longer. The Westbourne is in a great location being only a 5-10 minute walk from a range of eateries. The boat harbour is a little further away. We had booked a small room on purpose as we were only staying one night (and it was cheaper). A longer stay... More

We booked this hotel given its location and good reviews. Breakfasts were said to be good - true with an excellent and polite waitress. We had a standard room - no 6 which was small and little room to move. The bathroom was tired and cramped and needs updating. Overall we were a little disappointed given the cost - we... More

Great little hotel, gorgeous room, (we were in room 3). Good price and good breakfast, short downhill walk to shops/lake etc. Handy car park. Didn't make any use of it but we loved the idea of the honesty bar! Would 100% stay again.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Couldn't fault the location (near centre) and plenty of parking. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside was that we booked a double room and there was not a lot of room to move (glad I didn't book a small double!!!). Bedroom could do with freshening up as noted there was damp/water stains... More

Me & my husband arrived before check in time but our room was ready which was a pleasant surprise. Our room (8) was accessed by a separate entrance than those in the main hotel. The room was well decorated and spacious. The bed was very comfy - I had a great night's sleep. There was a shower room with the... More

Me and my partner stayed here for one night on 31st August 2016. We arrived quite early and our room was not ready yet, so we were able to leave our car in the carpark. Very spacious car park enough room for 6/7 cars. It was a ten minute down hill walk to Windemere lake. The room we stayed in... More
