I was a little concerned having read a few reviews and having received a text asking when I was intending to arrive, which some other reviewers mentioned. I arrived and was greeted by a lovely lady who welcomed me and showed me to my room. The room was a real surprise, rather than a shabby looking room I expected, I... More

Great value for a small but pleasant lodging house that is in such close proximity to the high street. Everything was fine in the room, it was clean and big enough. Breakfast portions were on small side , that was the only the downside. Came here for our honeymoon four years ago and was happy to be back here again.

We have been to Windermere a few times now and always use B&B's. First time in Elim House, from the outside it is a lovely looking place with a well kept front garden on entering it is very sweet; a little dated but that adds to it. We stayed in room 2 facing the back yard, the room was clean... More

Good standard B&B sited in close proximity to the town and lake. A little dated in places but no major complaints. We were situated in the annexe to the rear of the property and the room was very quite. Bed was very comfortable and the shower room adequate. Breakfast was very good and more importantly hot. Full English available but... More
