“Fab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Lovely guest house, absolutely spotless, good bed with top notch bedding and towels.TV and remote that works!. A 10/10 breakfast. Ample easy parking on site and off road. Very quite on a night BUT literally 5 mins from restaurants and pubs and shops. The owners are lovely ,helpful and welcoming without being in your face. Knowledgeable about the area also. Would stay again and HIGHLY recommend.

Room Tip: RM 9 has its own entrance/hall was good for leaving shoes etc.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights recently, and it has to be one of the nicest/friendliest places we have ever stayed in! The hosts, Andre and Sue, were extremely welcoming and catered for all of our needs. Bedroom was very clean, bathroom was very small (will upgrade next time) but again very clean, breakfast was top notch! I can't find any faults with this accommodation, it was simply perfect! Great location for long walks too. Oh and not to mention the endless number of restaurants and bars within walking distance! We will be definitely staying again - Highly recommended.

The Westbourne was the perfect place to stay.
It was not only great value, but had very friendly and attentive hosts and the breakfasts were lovely too. Great location, right in town.
I will come back to stay here without a doubt.

After staying in Keswick for 2 nights we moved on to Bowness to the Westbourne and wished we could have stayed longer. Andre and Sue were very warm and welcoming our room was lovely nicely furnished with a comfortable bed and spotlessly clean.

Breakfast was very well cooked with a good choice and for us "perfect poached eggs " and plenty of tea and toast.

We also made use of the guest lounge with an honesty bar this was nice if you wanted to sit and read or play games from the selection provided. We had a lovely 2 nights stay and are looking forward to our next visit.

Prefect place to stay ,can not fault this hotel in anyway ...... staff.....breakfast.....cleanliness .....location....perfect, can't wait to go back again,there's plenty of other hotels but to me this as got to be one of the best and is worthy of a score of 10/10......it's just a 5 min walk to the lake could waffle on and on but there's no need to ...book it yourself and find out you will not be disappointed in anyway .......

Andre and Sue are very welcoming and friendly hosts. There is plenty of parking rights outside this lovely looking property. Town is only a 5 to 10 minute stroll away. Breakfast is very good. The rooms are clean and lack nothing. We only stayed here 1 night so I dont think we got the full experience; but other than the bedroom being seriously too warm our stay here was fine.

Excellent B and B in a great location. Couple of minutes walk into Bowness for all the shops and restuarants. Andre and Sue are excellent hosts and the breakfast was to a high standard. We had the compact double ensuite room, which was perfectly ok for how much time we were actually in the room but the bathroom was very small. Would probably upgrade if we were to stay again (which I definitely would!).
