A group of six of us, two groups of three, stayed in two rooms for two nights. We enjoyed our experience. The property is located off the main drag in Bowness so is pretty quiet. Karen, the owner, was very pleasant and made good breakfasts. She had a system, which seemed logical to us, of having guests fill out pre-order... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in mid April for my boyfriend's 40th mini break. Owners were very accommodating and friendly. The b&b is perfect location from the centre. It is a 5 minute walk into the hub of Bowness. Quiet and peaceful location. Stayed in the best room in the house as it had its own bathroom. Would however say... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights in November. It rained. A lot. A lot of rain. This, however, didn't take away from the enjoyment of the area or the stay at Elim Lodge. We got a nice welcome and the order form for breakfast was pointed out to us. I am another one who feel a bit strange filling... More

This guest house was very clean and the staff was very helpful and polite. The room was very clean and had everything you needed in there. The location for us was great, because it was not in the middle town, but near enough to get to everything. We will come back this guest house in the further.
