We spent a weekend here and found the hotel to be clean, comfortable and friendly. Breakfast was fantastic and had a really large selection of main dishes. We opted for the Cumbrian grill both mornings but the smoked salmon with eggs sounded delicious. The staff and management were attentive, extremely courteous and friendly. We have stayed at other locations in the Lakes none with a bed as comfortable as the one at the Burn How. I would recommend this establishment on value as you can spend the same amount on a B&B without the extra facilities that an hotel offers. Location is perfect, far enough away from main road but just a five minute walk from Bowness and it's restaurants bars and shops. Only negative was no draught ale in the bar but plenty of bottled choice. Would definitely stay here again, thanks for a lovely break.

We spent the new years eve here,
The staff are amazingly helpful and show a level of service that seems to have become unknown in the UK these days.
Breakfast is amazing, I never eat breakfast usually but I made an exception here and I was really glad I did. The restaurant staff were amazingly attentive and the quality of the food was fantastic

The rooms are okay, perfectly fine and good value. The room was quiet, you can't hear road noise or anyone else which is so nice and unlike most other hotels.

Well worth taking a stay here :)

Really superb hotel. Yes the rooms are a little dated but the staff, charm and overall comfort makes this hotel worth a stay. The lounge is particularly nice and the bar area lovely. Breakfast is also great. Nice leafy surroundings and reasonable price.

We will be staying again.

The hotel is idealy situated in the village of Bowness on Windermere. We arrived by train at Windermere and took a bus to Bowness, it stopped just two minutes walk from the hotel, just in front of the ferry pier. The hotel is in the center of the village wich makes it easy to go to restaurants.
Our beautiful room was in the lodge, on the second floor. It was clean an very roomy. We had a big window with a view on the hills on the other side of the laken and a good sized modern bathroom.
The breakfast in served in the main house, in a vey lovely and big room. Large choice of english dishes and also non english. Delicious!
The restaurant in the evening is also very good, lots of meat. You can also have sandwitches for lunch.
The staff was very helpful and professional.
We spend a wonderful time there and would be delighted to go back!

It is good to know that your return visit to us was enjoyed again. It can be difficult to always have a mattress to a guests taste, but please call us and the reception team will arrange a room with a firmer mattress for you when you are able to return to the lakes again, we look forward to welcoming you back

Stayed here for a couple of nights and delighted to find its as good as ever!
We've always stayed at the Burn How over the years, when in the Lake District, and it's a real find!
Back off the main road around the lake, so nice and quiet, with great spacey rooms and very friendly professional service - yet it's only a stroll into Bowness itself!
Lovely spacious chalet room, overlooking the garden, which was spotlessly clean. The chalet rooms have a double bed, single bed and a fold-down bed, so are great family rooms although there were only two of us.
Have to admit the double bed was way too low and soft for our taste, so we'll definitely need to check on that the next time we stay!
We had a beautiful meal in the restaurant on our first evening and the breakfasts are fantastic too!
As it was December it was quiet, but we expected that.
The staff were all lovely - very chatty, but not in your face, attentive, professional and couldn't do enough for you. Excellent!
Great to find that the Burn How has continued to maintain its excellent standard and service!
We'll definitely be returning!
