Sandown Guest House
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Lovely owners, very helpful. Even have typed out sheets of paper with local walks on and directions. Offered to help change a flat tyre we acquired en route. Great breakfast, comfy bed, perfect location. Shower wasn't very powerful - a better shower would be a good investment but that is my only criticism!

We stayed at this lovely guest house for two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We arrived later on in the evening and was greeted by Georgeene who made us feel very welcome. She asked if we had visited the Lakes before and recommended places to eat in the area. Our room was very comfortable, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. The whole of the place made you feel at home. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and served in a lovely room by Mark who couldn't do enough for you, thank you so much. We have stayed in some lovely places in the Lakes but this little gem has to be the best, beautiful rooms, lovely food and fantastic host what more could you ask for. This guest house is a credit to it's owners Georgeene and Mark, we will recommend it to anyone and definitely be back

My wife and i stayed at this lovely guest house for three nights. On arrival we were greeted by Georgeene who made us feel very welcome. Our room was very comfortable, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. This guest house is a credit to it's owners Georgeene and Mark, who along with their staff are professional, friendly and helpful. The breakfast was of a high standard with an excellent choice including a top quality English breakfast.
The location is perfect and only a few minutes walk into the centre of Bowness with it's lovely restaurants, bars, shops, cinema and the beautiful lake.
Both Georgeene and Mark have a very good knowledge of the local area and also the rest of the lakes, they are more than happy to give advice if needed.
We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate in recommending to others. We look forward to returning again sometime soon.

We stayed at the Sandown for three nights with my wife's brother and his wife. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day. The owners, Georgeene and Mark, and all their staff were very friendly and helpful and made our stay a pleasant one. The location of the guest house on the edge of Bowness is fine and the availability of on site parking is a bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future. We would recommend a stay at the Sandown!

Room Tip: All rooms are on the ground floor.

We stayed at the Sandown for my birthday and what a joy it was. The owners are lovely and nothing is ever too much for them. The staff are also very friendly and very welcoming at breakfast and are happy to help with anything including tips on things to do in the lakes. We would highly, highly recommend Sandown to anyone wanting to stay in Windermere or bowness as it is central for both and we will most definitely be returning to stay again. The whole place is absolutely immaculate and cannot be faulted in any way!!!

We had a two night stay in this little gem of a guesthouse. We were greeted by Georgeene, the owner,and shown to our room. The room was small but spotlessly clean and decorated to a high standard in a modern design. The bedrooms are on the ground floor and the dining room and lounge are on the first floor. They too were immaculate. There was ample parking space on site which is a plus for us. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt and fruit juice and of course the full English. Georgeene was very pleasant and had a good knowledge of the area. A gentle 10 minute walk takes you through the town and down to the lake. We would most certainly stay there again.

Very friendly and good service, even though I was just there for one night. Clean and well decorated room and very good breakfast. no hesitations in recommending this B&B or staying there again. Good location for access into both Bowness and Windermere.
