I was hesitant about this place based on last few reviews but had no choice so took the risk. While Theresa and Colette were really sweet and friendly , let us checkin early and booked us a cab to station .. The room itself was very dated and non functional ..There were no extra towels for the kids , mattress...

My wife and I stayed at the lake view guest house last week-end ( 7th -9th October) and found it to be very comfortable. It was room only, but it had a fridge and tea and coffee making kit and was well appointed for shops, restaurants and bars. It was very clean although a bit basic. When we arrived we...

we found out the previous owners don't have this place anymore due to some pretty sad circumstances hence the reviews taking a turn for the worst ! When we arrived we waited over an hour to get access and wouldnt have got in at all if we wouldn't have followed someone in who was staying there so we managed to...

Before you book this place - please note that it is NOT in any way shape or form, a Bed & Breakfast establishment. Despite the sign outside stating Bed & Breakfast & despite the photographs of breakfast everywhere - it does not offer any sort of food. Nor, despite the name, does it have views of Lake Windermere - unless...

I do't know why this place has so many good reviews, from booking because of the reviews I am extremely disappointed. When I arrived I was greeted by a locked door and a note stuck onto it saying i had to go to a hotel 4 doors up, I went there and waited 10 minutes before someone finally came up...

We stayed there twice and would love to go back again. The food is really good. The rooms are nice and cosy.The place is very close to the lake. The parking is just behind the building. The hosts are very nice and make you feel at home.

Visited this guesthouse for the 3rd time. Now owned by a lovely couple, who also own Field House (a couple of doors away). Really nice big rooms with a sitting area and window overlooking the lake. well positioned in Bowness, only a couple of minutes from all the bars, restaurants and shops.

We have just returned from a relaxing weekend in the Lakes. Lake View lived up to all our expectations. Food, comfort and cleanliness were 5 star and the owners were very accommodating. (wouldn't expect anything different from 3 fellow scousers)

We spent 2 nights at the Lake View Guest House last weekend (May 2015). Overall I'm slightly bemused by the 5 star reviews this place gets on here. Firstly, though, it's in an amazing location, right in the middle of Bowness, with masses of cafes, restaurants, shops next door, and the lake and boats only 1 minute walk away. The...
