Nice friendly b&b , the location is fantastic 2 minutes from town centre and breakfast was of nice quality. Our Room 14 was ( as been stated in previous reviews ) lacking a window which did make it a bit stuffy at night but we got the room at a cheaper rate than the rest so can't complain. The room...

All round great weekend! We were instantly made to feel very welcome upon arrival, this was our first child free weekend. We were promptly shown to our room which was lovely! Very spacious and very clean! The location of the b&b was perfect- although the walk up the hill after a meal and couple of beers is a killer! The... More

We booked this B&B via Booking.com as we wanted something comfortable, convenient and budget-friendly place in Lake District. This charming place is delightful and situated in Bowness on Windermere, close to several restaurants, attractions (Beatrix Potter) and the lakeside cruises in Windermere. Danny, the owner was friendly and welcoming, and we found the rooms very inviting, clean and cosy. Would... More

Thank you for staying with us and providing feedback. I am sorry you were so disappointed with your room and the service levels we provide. We change towels and bedding every other day but we will change them daily if requested. I cannot understand how your towels were wet given the heated towel rail in your bathroom is permanently on?... More

Guest house is in an amazing location, a one minute walk from all the local amenities. The rooms were beautifully decorated, clean and bright and lovely spacious en suite bathroom. We were made to feel really welcome, and the breakfast was lovely too. Couldn't fault it at all.

We called for a room at short notice and the owner Danny was kind enough to accommodate us. He offered two rooms and we opted for the more expensive at £90 B&B as it has a bath and frontal view. This was a sound investment as the room was excellent as was the breakfast, which offered a great selection. We... More
