I stayed here for one night with my wife. We arrived quite early (in the morning) and understandably our room wasn't ready but we were able to leave our car in the car park and check in later. The car park is a decent size with ample parking available, which is not always a given in such a touristy area.... More

I would not class this as an upscale B & B. The décor in the room we had was a little tired and the room smelled of damp. The wardrobe cupboard was definitely damp. Despite the weather being sunny a lot of the time, our room was not "light and airy" as described on the website and we always needed... More

My wife and I visited here for a romantic weekend. It's a cute little B&B very close to all the shops and restaurants. The room was perfect for the 2 of us - it had a very comfy bed and was cleaned everyday although we created a mess due to the wet weather. We reached an hour earlier than check... More

Stayed for three nights and really enjoyed our stay as well as the whole Lake District experience! Very comfortable beds, clean room and excellent breakfast! On the morning of our departure I noticed that my car had a flat tire. In trying to loosen the wheel nuts with the lug wrench I became frustrated because they were tightened with an... More

We stayed here on our final night of a three night stay after our original booking at a nearby B&B let us down. Upon arrival we were greeted with smiles and friendly service and we were shown to our room. We had booked a small double room on booking.com and, whilst the room was small, it was perfect for a...

This B&B was very quaint and located in a good location. It's about 20-30 minutes walk from Windermere itself and about 10 minutes from the Lake. The Royalty Cinema is just around the corner. There are plenty of shops nearby and bars/pubs to go for a few drinks. Great place for Couples and familiies.

Beautiful building, excellent facilities, spacious comfy and quiet rooms. I have been travelling to the Lakes for over 40 years and have stayed in dozens of B&Bs. This was by far the best I have ever been to. Very welcoming staff, tremendous choice at breakfast and cater well for veggies. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Very close to town centre... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Very good with comfortable room. Very clean. Like the fact there is a comfy sitting room for guests to use. Parking is a premium in the town, so this is a bonus at Westbourne. Easy to walk to shops, restaurants and lake. Andre and Sue helpful if you need advice on local area. Excellent breakfast.... More

The hosts are extremely warm and lovely couple. Our cottage was the most beautiful one can imagine, compact but luxurious. Breakfast is included and if u are a vegetarian, make sure to tell in advance. The trip to the train station costs about £10 by taxi. Most places are within walking distance.

Beautiful b&b. Only a short walk away from the lake & shops. Friendly staff & very pleasant breakfast. 4 poster bed & reasonably comfortable. Perfect for couples wanting a short break in the lakes. :)
