Stayed for three nights and would say that in terms of location, Monties is great. It is smack right in Bowness just across from the shops and just under five minutes walk to the Lake. You will be hard pressed to find a better value as far as location is concerned. The downside..the place is in need of a serious... More

Great location in the heart of Bowness. The staff we dealt with were friendly and efficient. The rooms are well appointed, spacious and clean. The breakfast in the morning was tasty and plentiful. Lovely furnishings and a nice chilled out feel to it. We found the price to be fair and good value for the accommodation.

We stayed In room 5 on the top floor. The room was fine, colour TV, en'suite bathroom and tea and coffee facilyies. The B&B is on a busy road next to roundabout, but this did not spoil our stay we were 2 minutes from 6 bars. The place is a little tired which is expected from an old building. The... More

The location is great. It is a 2 minute walk from bowness pier and it's a 25 minute walk to Windermere town. The breakfast was great, I'm vegetarian so having a full Breakfast for vegetarians is great. There is no reception so it's a bit confusing but our room was ok for 2 days. Not the biggest of rooms but... More

Large rooms, perfect location right in the middle of the town, staff very helpful and friendly, on the down side, parking is first come first serve, but to be honest you are better off paying £15 (2016) for 3 nights parking around the corner just past the Albert Pub that way you don't get blocked in.
