The Howbeck was our 5 star starting venue for our Highland car tour. We all gathered here in Windermere for our first night and enjoyed a first class night and excellent breakfast which set us up for the rest of our tour. Bon voyage, we will no doubt return!

We stayed here again on a climbing holiday with friends from the Highlands. The hotel is remarkably comfortable and you are always well looked after by the staff. Its in a great position for exploring the Lakes District and is a perfect place to come back to after a days hard hiking in the hills. We'll be back!

I booked the Retreat at the Howbeck to celebrate my wifes birthday and our anniversary.We were not disappointed,from the warm welcome and attentive staff to the spotless and spacious room everything was top drawer.

Little touches like the complimentary sherry and the box of chocolates on the bed simply added to the enjoyment.

We even managed to breakfast on our own secluded patio on the last morning in the summer sun!!

A thoroughly relaxing break in a superb small hotel.

This b&b looks more like a really good hotel. The rooms and welcome are much better than many hotels we have stayed in, the bed was really comfortable. Breakfast was so much better than most hotels offer .

Had a lovely weekend at the Howbeck, the hotel is spotlessly clean, and the staff are very efficient and friendly and cant do enough for you, we stayed in the Windergill room, which was very nice though a little on the small side, my only critisism would be that there were no drapes on the four poster bed which the room advertises, and i thought spoiled the whole four poster effect and also a full length mirror would be beneficial, but apart from that everything was tip top, the spa bath was fantastic also the breakfast was especially nice cooked to perfection and lots of it.
All in all a very pleasant stay at the Howbeck and we would definately come back in the future.

Arrived to a very warm welcome, first impressions were excellent, room was just as the web site had shown, very high quailty and clean. Service was excellent as was the food. Close to Windermere and an easy walk to Bowness. All in all a first class place to stay.
