“Jules & Duncan Allan - An Amazing Place”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

After a week of staying in hotels as we travelled through Scotland and The Lakes we spent our last night at Broadlands. We received the warmest of welcomes from Janette and were supplied with a Carpark voucher for the off-street car parks in the area. The room was Immaculately clean and well supplied with Tea and Coffee etc. We were pleasantly supplied by the ensuite shower room complete with a face flannel - the only place to supply one during our week of travels. Brian supplied useful information of the area and we had a great nights sleep in a comfortable bed - very quiet for being so central to the town. Another warm welcome in the Breakfast room where the choice was far superior to the hotels we had stayed in all week and the Full English was the Best we have ever had - First class local produce cooked to perfection! On leaving we felt we had made Two new friends!

Normally we dont choose B+Bs but after our recent stay we may well start avoiding the soulless chain hotels. We foudn the place easily - the location is perfect, just out of the town, so wonderfully quiet, with on street parking if you're lucky, which we were, and a voucher if you're not. Yet close enough to walk into town if you want to.

We had the room called a "small double" so I was a little wary, but it wasn't even that small in my opinion, there was plenty of room to walk around the comfy bed, and it was so tastefully decorated and clean, it felt just like home. The shower was a little small for me, but worked fine.

The owners were really friendly and my irrational fear of B+Bs was pushed aside. They helped getting me a taxi, and the breakfast the next morning was worthy of any hotel in the world. They said that they get a lot of repeat business, you can see why. We will definitely stay again. Why pay twice as much for a soulless room in a big hotel when all you want is a friendly place to stay.

Room Tip: Dont be put off by the small double room - its perfecly fine, and even better value

We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2011. The welcome was great, very friendly couple. Our room was a little small but we don't spend much time in a room anyway so it wasn't a problem for us. The free parking voucher was great and the car park is directly opposite the guest house. The location is very good with town just around the corner. Brian was very helpful with his local knowledge and was able to give information on places worth visiting. Breakfast was excellent - Janette basically cooks whatever you ask for which isn't something you get in most guest houses. We would definitely return to Broadlands if we visited the Lake District again

I booked this weekend break for my parents as a present. They had a fantastic time at the Broadlands. The accommodation was spotless and the owners were friendly and made my parents feel at home. They bothed loved the breakfast and could not fault the guesthouse one bit. Broadlands is also ideally located for the centre of Windermere or a short walk to Bowness on Windermere.
My paretns are planning to re -visit in summer.
Thankyou

The only negative I could provide is that the pillows were not comfy. Everything else is absolutely amazing!!

We chose the Broadlands as our b&b honeymoon base because of the reviews and were not disappointed!

When we arrived we were greeted with a friendly atmosphere from Janette and a room with chocolates, champagne and balloons!

From there on out we had nothing but great advice on trips and walks, tasty, locally produced breakfasts, and a clean respectable room.

We will definately be coming back here again!!!!

We do not normally bother writing reviews but we were so impressed with this guest house we felt we had to. We spent 3 nights there and were made to feel so welcome by Brian and Janette from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Nothing was too much trouble and their advice on the walks in the local area was really helpful to us. The house was spotless and comfortable and breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be returning next year.

We stayed here for 2 nights and would definitely go back. Our hosts were lovely and very chatty and gave us lots of information and guidence about the area such as activities and restaurants. The bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed in our room, including little extra touches i.e. a small box of choclates. The breakfast was lovely, I ecspecially liked the fruit and yogurt! This B&B was located just a 10min walk from windermere station and it was near an abudance of shops and restaurants. It is about a 20min walk from the main piers on Windermere lake and the ferry crossing, the whole area is beautiful.
