I can honestly say that I've never experienced anything like this place in my life! No heating in the room was working (it's December) was given an electric heater which was temperamental. No hot water for a shower in the morning. Place was filthy, moldy and smelt unbelievable.

So it’s not the ritz but come on £35 each in the middle of Bowness I think that’s a bargain, 8 girls stayed there some of them easier to please than others but we were all happy, it was clean and tidy we got a very warm welcome, don’t come here if you want to sit in the room but

Do you know what? We loved it. We read the reviews and were quite worried but actually we had such a great time. So it isn't Hilton smart...so the doors are a little creaky...we were treated so well and the rooms were clean and comfortable it was fantastic fun. Live music, Peter

This hotel is actually disused as such. The pub next door are only using the bedrooms. We were greeted by a sign at the door saying to check in at Churchills next door. Kitchen and bar/restaurant are closed. The website shows the dining areas set for eating. This is misleading.

Hi, sorry for the late reply. Me and my partner have stayed there twice and have found no problems. I think a lot of people do expect more from a B&B. My personal opinion is it all comes down to what type of break you have in mind. Me and my partner go the lakes because we do a lot of walking and site seeing,so this place is ideal for us. We found the rooms to be clean etc but we only use the B&B just as a place to have a shower and to get our heads down after a long days walking. The bonus about the B&B your in the heart of bowness and just a couple of minutes walk from everything you need. Hope has helped you. There are a lot better places In bowness but this place gets the stick it does not deserve. It’s an ideal place for walkers.

We didnt stay we actually contacted booking site within 20.min of arriving and told them.not to pay them.in fairness we had literally booked that day and drove down so booking was only 3hrs old They did have to.contact thr owner who agreed. The place is disgusting and I xant understand why it is in a prime locatiin and could be a great business
