Just returned from a short break at the Bowness Bay Suites. First impression was good, although it is starting to look a bit tired (light bulbs out, wall paper peeling, wall scuffs). The room was decorated beautifully. The view was great. The location is fantastic. A great base for exploring the lakes.
There were a few things that let the hotel down in my opinion for the price. At breakfast only one piece of fruit was suplied per couple. After an 8 mile walk we returned to find that the bed hadn't been turned down and there were no fresh towels, leaving us to dry ourselves off with the damp ones used earlier. The heating system in our suite was very noisey, so much so, that we had to turn the heating off in the night to get some quiet.
Now, I appreciate these are only tiny problems, but for the price paid I expected a little bit more attention to detail.
Unfortunately for us the 'little touch of luxury' describes the decor and not the service or value for money.
