Reasonably priced, great location. Fast and friendly check in. Our room was clean and spacious. Though the toilet was a little cramped. The room had a TV, tea making facilities and a unique little decanter of sherry on arrival. The hotel has a cosy dining area which you are served breakfast, full choice of cereals, fruit juices and of course... More

Hotel was in a great position, a 10 min walk up the hill from the lake. Passing all the lovely shops, restaurants and local cinema. All the staff were friendly and always had a smile. Rooms and furnishings in the room were tastefully decorated and made for a warm welcome and relaxing stay. Bar seemed well stocked and bar area... More

From the fast friendly check-in, comfy beds and delicious breakfast, we loved this BnB. The communal sitting area/bar downstairs offers a breathing space outside the room. It's convenient for a walk into Bowness and also to all the attractions of the area. Had parking out the back. Lots of restaurants, short walk away. We would go back if we were... More

We have stayed in various guest houses in Windermere, many very good. This was more central than a lot we have used and we weren't dissapointed. Rooms clean, staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast good.

We took our fearful Saluki dog here for the night, the staff are brilliant and we had a great stay in a comfortable room. They went out of their way to make things easy for pet owners even setting up an out of the way breakfast table so our dog could join us and he got his own bowl of... More

This is gorgeous little place and Andrew gave us such enthusiast welcome thank you. Beautiful room was small but that didn't matter. Their were two dogs staying as well which was surprising to us being from Australia we don't allow dogs in hotels or restaurants. Didn't worry us as we are doggy people. Would have liked to stay longer beautiful... More

We were greeted kindly by Andrew. He was so helpful and kind. The rooms were large enough to fit 3 beds, one queen and 2 twin. Which we needed since their were 8 in our family. The breakfast was marvelous! It was a short walk to the lake, which was pleasant. It is a charming bed and breakfast and I... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for only one night in June 2016 and wish we could have stayed longer! We were given a parking space which was tight but available as promised, and we were welcomed warmly in the hotel. Our room was at the very top of the hotel - a fair climb up so not suitable for...

A 5-10 minute walk to lake. Andrew & the staff were great. Rooms were big & spacious. My only comment would be to try & request a room with a window in the back. The street noise , Along with some noisy hotel guests who left the hotel st 5 am woke us up. Small car park in back.
