“Excellent at Ellerdene”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Stumbled across this little Gem. Excellent accommodation and location in Windermere - just a short stroll into the town. Rooms are decorated in excellent taste with considerable attention to detail and spotlessly clean. Probably the softest pillows I have experienced in a long time and such a comfortable bed and room. Plentiful supplies of tea/coffee and small fridge available in the room. Parking available on road and street opposite. Quality food and service at breakfast with good choice of options; freshly cooked. Definitely recommend and visit again.

Room Tip: Family size room offers double bed and single bed; excellent value if twin room is unavailable.

we have just had a 2 day stay from tuesday 10th september 2013 at the ellerdene guest house in windermere. both myself and my husband found the ellerdene to be very clean and comfortable, lovely breakfast and phil and rick were fantastic hosts, nothing is a trouble for them.the room we were in was very warm and quiet considering we were near a road we heard no noise to speak of. they are very welcoming and will help with any problems if they arise. we have really enjoyed our stay and will return again,

Perfect place for our little family to stay and a very warm welcome from our hosts. The location is excellent for a very short stroll into Windermere. The accommodation offered everything we needed. Wonderful

Ellerdene Guest House has just provided the most perfect bank holiday weekend for our family (party of 8 plus 2 dogs).Thankyou Rick and Phil for being the most perfect guests attending to our every need.We all received a wonderfully warm welcome ,the rooms were great and beautifully clean.Breakfast was a hit with everyone -plenty of choice with the cooked food well presented on super hot plates((.Even Sky Sports was provided not far from Ellerdene at The Brookside Pub - essential for one family member!)We didn't want to leave and can't wait to return someday.
We would all highly recommend Ellerdene and wish Rick,Phil and Missy all the best and thank you so much - even the weather was perfect . Phil and Mary Tomlinson and family xx

The owner is very nice and the room is lovely! Guests can choose what they want for their breakfast in advance by completing the breakfast form. There is a bus stop near Ellerdene which allows you to take bus to different parts of Lake District. On the first night when we came back, we found a tin with homemade carrot cake in it, which warmed our hearts. The last morning when we asked about the bus fare to the train station, the owner immediately said that he could give us a lift. What a great B&B! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The room on the ground floor is suitable for people traveling with heavy luggage.

We stayed only 1 night on the way north. Clean and homely B&B. The triple room was spacious. Location wise, it is only a short 10min walk from the train station. Also walking distance to Bowness for the cruises & lake. As we had to leave early the next morning to catch a train, Cath, Rhonda and Barry were really wonderful and had breakfasts packed for us!

The rooms are a bit small, the bed is a bit too small. It's quite noisy form the adjoining bathrooms. The owners are very friendly and the breakfast is fine. Location right next to the center is great, you can also walk to Bowness (15-minute walk).

Thank you for your review, although we are sorry to hear you weren't completely satisfied with your stay at Ellerdene, we are also very disappointed that you didn't feel you could raise these issues with us whilst you were here as you did mention we are very friendly, which is kind of you to say as we do like to try and make everyone welcome and would have done our best to sort out anything that was bothering you.
The room you chose to book, online, is our smallest double en suite room and as such this is reflected in the price, you also commented on the noise from adjoining bathrooms?, this room has no adjoining bathrooms and is linked to a room that is not used but we do apologize for any disturbances you may have heard, though we cannot think what this may have been.
We are pleased you found the location good and maybe you could try one of our larger double en suite rooms if you decided to come to Windermere again.
