“What a great find”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Found this B&B by reading reviews on this site and what a little gem it is. Caroline the owner is very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The whole place was spotlessly clean. Although the rooms were not the largest they certainly had everything in that you required and were nicely decorated. The breakfast is superb, my compliments to the chef. The location is ideal for the town and a 10 minute walk to the bus station for a trip other beauty spots in the area. We had a super weekend and if you are looking for a great place to stay in Windemere you need not look any further

stayed for three nights in room 5, lovely cosy room which had a warm and cosy atmosphere . on arrival we were greeted by the owner caroline who was very friendly and welcoming. room was nicely decorated with lots of nice little touches. good view from window and nice peacefull nights sleep, breakfast consisted of good selection of cereals and fresh fruit yoghurts, tea coffee, orange juice. the full English breakfast was excellent and nicely presented. would definitely stay here again as it was very central to the lakes and the town.

Room Tip: best breakfast ever

We stayed for two nights at the White Rose this weekend. We had room 3 at the front of the house. We have stayed in quite a number of B and B's and hotels for various weekends this year (8 in total!) and this was up there with the nicest ones. There is no car park but parking on the street was fine. The room was lovely and comfortable and it was great to have a sofa to sit on to have a glass of wine and watch a film when we got back from dinner. The bathroom isn't big but is perfectly fine and very clean with lovely soft towels. The White Rose is perfectly situated for walking around the corner for dinner or a drink and the accommodation itself is in a quiet side street. We had a Chinese in the Oriental Kitchen and an Indian in the Prince of India in Windemere - both were really good. Would like to have stayed longer than two nights though. The area is breathtaking and we are already planning to go back to the Lakes in the Spring for a week. We were out cycling and every person that we cycled passed said hello - very friendly place. Breakfast was lovely too - thank you Caroline.

Room Tip: Room 3 - it's on the road but it's very quiet as it is a side street.

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
