Staying in Room 5. Pretty view of the front of the house from the front window. Rest of my party also have very nice rooms in 2-4! The bathroom is a little tight, but it is also clean, neat and has hot water for a great shower. The rooms are pretty spacious and bed very comfortable. :) Caroline is very knowledgeable about the area and helped us create an itinerary that was suitable for our party. Another couple was also in the same breakfast room and she suggested other activities for the sporty pair. It was a great experience overall.

Booked online all was good. Arrived on Saturday(02/03/2013) and even though we were first time guests Caroline greeted us like old friends. The room was cosy and just enough for the the two of us. Caroline was really helpful when asked about eateries in Windermere. Nothing was too much trouble.. Really comfortable nights sleep and breakfast was perfection. We shall return and stay longer. Thank you very much Caroline.

We spent several days here. Caroline is a wonderful hostess, plenty of info. The rooms are spotless , beds are good and breakfsts are hot and plentiful.
Located very handy to the centre of town there are plenty of eateries within 5 minutes walk.
Parking is on street but plentiful and safe.
All in all, we had the perfect time in Wndermere.

Room Tip: We had a little loft room so were on top of the world there...small but cosy

This was our first stay in B&B accomodation for a lot of years and the "White Rose" proved to be an excellent choice. I booked the annexe room.This room is seperate from the rest of the other guest rooms and is perfect for privacy and peace and quiet as it is situated within a private courtyard at the back of the property. It is a compact room with a large double bed with en-suite facilities with a TV that includes Sky programmes to view.
Tea & Coffee is provided in the room to make as required and a hair dryer is also provided. The room is very clean and bright.
Caroline has excellent people skills and makes you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive until you leave.
The breakfast experience is excellent with plenty of choice and the "Full English" is highly recommended - very hot and plentiful and served daily with a smile.
Your are provided with a local Parking Permit - that allows you to park your vehicle very close to the actual property itself.
Located within minutes of the centre of Windermere's shops, restaurants and pubs it is also an ideal location to use as a base to visit other places of interest within the Lake District.

Room Tip: The annexe room is self contained and has a small courtyard to enjoy as well.

We are approximately third or fourth time visitors to this hotel and our appreciation of it gets better everytime we go.
We tend to go for short 'walkiing' holidays in the winter, and though there is plenty of choice for an evening meal out just a short walk away, we love to return to our logdings to finish the evening in warmth and comfort and plan for the next days walking.
Caroline is so pleasant and friendly, apparently the same with everyone, she puts you at ease straight away, and her full English breakfast is just perfect, though requests are accepted for alternative personel choices we find.
There was a large flat screen tv with a DVD player and a leather sofa in our room at the front of the house and the bed was comfortable and gave a good nights sleep everytime..
Very good value for money in these hard up times!

Room Tip: The first floor bedrooms.at the front are a little more spacious with better ammenities.
