Arrived in Bowness without having booked accommodation. Sue couldn't have been nicer and got me checked in straight away. Food was fabulous and the room was excellent. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

Sue was great. It was our wedding anniversary and she left us bubbly and a card in our room! Could not have been more accommodating. The location is great. Only a few minutes walk from the lake and main shopping/restaurant area. Thanks again Sue for a lovely weekend!

We stayed here for 3 nights at Easter and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Very clean and tidy, located a short walk to the centre of Bowness the location is perfect. Made to feel very welcome and the breakfast was lovely too! There is parking on site and some great places to eat and drink only a short walk...

Checked availability online and rooms available. Rang up 4 days in advance of when I required the booking and was spoken too very abruptly. The tone suggested that I should have know that they were full. I asked for a room and was just told fully booked. I tried to explain that rooms (plural) were still as showing as available...

Thanks for your comments & I'm sorry you had this experience. Trust me it is not our policy to shout at would be guests & as I am here usually on my own in the afternoon & evenings & I know for certain I haven't shouted at anyone for a long time I'm really at a loss how this happened....

Stayed here for 3 nights from New Years Eve. Made to feel really welcome in this lovely home from home B&B. Sue and Ali looked after us and made sure we wanted for nothing. Even leaving a complimentary bottle of fizz to see in the new year for us in our room on arrival. The room was clean and warm...

Spent three midweek days here during half term. Nice location for all the local sights and sounds with off road parking, albeit a bit on the right side if you have a large vehicle. Sue was a great host and very helpful, dishing out top breakfasts each morning! We had room 5...overlooks the main road so expect a little traffic...
