This was the first time my Hubbie has booked a surprise and trust me the last time!! I read the reviews the night before we arrived and wanted to cry but with no refund available we went. On arrival it does not look appealing at all but ...... In the reception the owner does sit surrounded by empty glasses (2pm)... More

We were the only people who stayed there that should have said something to me at the time! We had to ask for breakfast the guy was smoking cigarettes and called someone on the phone, they arrived 20mins later and then pointed to some bowls of cereal then disappeared. After 30mins I asked if we could have a cup of... More

Firstly, I must point out that we didn't check the reviews before we booked this as it was a bit of an emergency booking and extremely last minute, no excuse but that's the reality and the mistake! I really cannot believe that in such a busy and lucrative tourist resort like Bowness on Windermere, a place like this could exist.... More

Booked for 2 nights left after 5 minutes, booked through Booking.com and conditions said no refund - I wonder why? Anyone who gives this place a good writeup must be a friend of the owner. The location is good and that's the ONLY positive. There are plenty of good hotels within a mile for the same price - try one... More

As we arrived the building appeared dirty and dated. We went inside aware that we were approx 20 minutes early for check in and were told to go back in 1 hour as the room was still being cleaned. The man who greeted us was abrupt and pointed us in the direction of a man who was sitting on a... More

Great location, but it is dirty, I mean very dirty...staff (not rude, but....) consists of people who obviously have problems with alcohol. Sad...these people need help and so does the hotel. I could not connect wifi, but this is the last thing I was missing.

On arrival we were met at the door by Bob . He was very helpful but very drunk. He showed us to our room and explained that he would cook our breakfast the following morning and 'psycho Baz' would be the waiter! The room had clean bedding but unfortunately nothing else can be positively said about it. The photos below... More

We have just got back from The White House, I hadn't read any of the reviews before we got there, so I didn't have any preconceptions about the place. Well when we arrived, I thought to myself where have we come to, it was very scruffy from the outside, when we went inside we was told we needed to see... More

Stayed at The White House recently & after reading some of the previous reviews (after we had already booked the room), we were a little dubious to say the least. On arrival the building does look very tired, but nothing that a lick of paint wouldnt sort! We met John the owner/manager, who was very friendly & polite. Yes he... More
