“Lovely break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

The hotel is in a fabulous location and the breakfasts were really good.I had a single room at the top of the house.It was very small and I didn't check whether it had a shower or bath.It had a shower which was really good but I would have loved to have a bath.
The only negative comment is that the room was cold.Whenthe heating was on the radiator only heated up at the bottom in the bedroom and the one in the bathroom didn't work at all.However this would not stop me staying again.....

I stayed here with my wife on the recommendation of a friend. Turned out to be an excellent choice as Oldfield does exactly was it says on the tin. The entire house is spotless and beautifully decorated. Breakfast is high quality with tea/coffee making facilities in rooms. Most important of all, are the hosts, Stephanie and Jon, who were welcoming, accommodating, and full of suggestions to enjoy Windermere and the surrounding area. The restaurants and shops in the area were plentiful and it is a bonus to be able to walk to and from these establishments. A massive bonus is the benefit of good free parking. (Recently stayed in Windsor and had to pay £24 for overnight parking). All In all highly recommended.

We stayed at the Oldfield house for 2 nights. The room facitilities were brilliant, the chocolates on the pillow and the biscuits were a nice treat. Stephanie and Jon are very helpful and accommodating, breakfast was great with a full English on offer and excellent customer service, the toast and coffee/tea keeps coming, if you want it.

The location is excellent, inbetween both Widermere and Bowness, a perfect location to explore our favourite area of the lake district.

Thank you very much for a great weekend, Michelle and Richard

Excellent Guest House. This is supposed to be a work in progress for the new owners Stephanie and Jon, but I think they have already created a very nice, clean, and well apointed hotel. Excellent location within easy walk to both Bowness and Windermere. The breakfast is very good indeed that put many 5 star chain hotels to shame. There is plenty of choice for breakfast and the quality of the produce is excellent. Best Things...Stephanie and Jon (very friendly and helpful), power shower, cleanliness, separate guest living room, and of course the breakfast. Worst Things.....Coming home, and the British weather. Something to note, it is good to see into the kitchen where the food is prepared, which is spotlessly clean, and the chef dressed in proper chef whites (again clean). No wonder the food is good.

What a beautiful place to stay, It was tastefully decorated and the accommodation was first class and comfortable. This coupled with a very warm welcome from the proprietors and very tasty breakfasts made our stay complete. We will definitely book again.

We booked this guest house on the last minute and were very happy with our stay. The location is great, easily within walking distance to both Bowness and Windermere. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, and the nice en suite room was ideal. Good breakfast selection with butchers quality bacon and sausage. Overall a great stay, we will be back again to make a weekend of it.

We booked the guest house through a third party website which provided incorrect description, it wasnt upto 4 star condition more like 2 star. Upon arrival when we were greeted the smell of the guest house was stale and first impressions were very disappointing as blankets and throws covered the living room furniture. We were then shown to our room which was poor it needs updating considerably. The bathroom was tiny and couldnt swing a cat in it. After looking at the room we asked for our money back and departed.
